Dr.Dillamond: (spoken) Oh miss Elphaba, the things one hears these days. Dreadful things!
(sung) I've heard of an ox,
a professor from Quox,
no longer permitted to teach,
who has lost all powers of speech.
And an owl in Munchkin Rock,
a vicar with a thriving flock,
forbidden to preach,
now he only can screech.
Only rumours but still,
enough to get pause
from anyone with paws:
something bad is happening is Oz
Elphaba: Something bad happening in Oz?
Dr Dillamond: Under the surface, behind the scenes something baaaad
(spoken) oh I'm sorry - bad
Elphaba:(spoken) Dr Dillamond, If something bad is happening to the animals someone has to tell the wizard, that's why we have a wizard
(sung) so nothing bad
Dr Dillamond: (spoken) I hope your right
Both: (sung) Nothing all that bad
Dr Dillamond: (sung) Nothing truly baaaad
(spoken) sorry bad
Elphaba: (sung) It couldn't happen here in Oz?
