(feat. Kristin Chenoweth)

[TOURISTS]
ONE SHORT DAY
IN THE EMERALD CITY...

[GLINDA]
I've always wanted to see the Emerald City.

[TOURISTS]
ONE SHORT DAY
IN THE EMERALD CITY ...

ONE SHORT DAY
IN THE EMERALD CITY
ONE SHORT DAY
FULL OF SO MUCH TO DO
EV'RY WAY
THAT YOU LOOK IN THIS CITY
THERE'S SOMETHING EXQUISITE
YOU'LL WANT TO VISIT
BEFORE THE DAY'S THROUGH!

[ELPHABA]
THERE ARE BUILDINGS TALL AS QUOXWOOD TREES

[GLINDA]
DRESS SALONS

[ELPHABA]
AND LIBRARIES

[GLINDA]
PALACES!

[ELPHABA]
MUSEUMS!

[BOTH]
A HUNDRED STRONG ...
THERE ARE WONDERS LIKE I'VE NEVER SEEN

[GLINDA]
IT'S ALL GRAND

[ELPHABA]
AND IT'S ALL GREEN

[BOTH]
I THINK WE'VE FOUND THE PLACE WHERE WE BELONG!
I WANNA BE
IN THIS HOI POLLOI

[ELPHABA]
SO I'LL BE BACK FOR GOOD SOMEDAY

[GLINDA]
TO MAKE MY LIFE AND MAKE MY WAY

[BOTH]
BUT FOR TODAY, WE'LL WANDER AND ENJOY ...

[ALL]
ONE SHORT DAY
IN THE EMERALD CITY
ONE SHORT DAY
TO HAVE ALIFETIME OF FUN
ONE SHORT DAY...

[ELPHABA AND GLINDA]
AND WE'RE WARNING THE CITY...
NOW THAT WE'RE IN HERE
YOU'LL KNOW WE'VE BEEN HERE

[ALL]
BEFORE WE ARE DONE!

They are in front of a Broadway style marquee that reads "WIZ-O-MANIA."....

[WIZOMANIA CHORUS]
WHO'S THE MAGE
WHOSE MAJOR ITINERARY
IS MAKING ALL OZ MERRIER?
WHO'S THE SAGE
WHO SAGELY SAILED IN TO SAVE
OUR POSTERIERS?
WHOSE ENTHUSE FOR HOT AIR BALLOONING
HAS ALL OF OZ HONEYMOONING?
WOO -- OO -- OO ...
WIZ-N'T HE WONDERFUL?
(OUR WONDERFUL WIZARD!)

The Wiz-o-maniacs REPEAT the chorus as Elphaba, Glinda and the rest of the audience sing in counterpoint

THEN...

[ALL]
WHAT A WAY
TO BE SEEING THE CITY...

[ELPHABA AND GLINDA]
WHERE SO MANY ROAM TO
WE'LL CALL IT HOME TOO
AND THEN, JUST LIKE NOW
WE CAN SAY:
WE'RE JUST TWO FRIENDS ...

[ELPHABA]
TWO GOOD FRIENDS ...

[GLINDA]
TWO BEST FRIENDS ...

They look at each other, realizing that what Glinda has just said is true.

[ALL]
SHARING ONE WONDERFUL
ONE SHORT ...

A Guard pops his head out of the door to the Wizard's Palace --

[GUARD]
The Wizard will see you now!

[ALL]
DAY!
