[GLINDA]
Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsical...

[ELPHABA]
My dear Father...

[BOTH]
THERE'S BEEN SOME CONFUSION
OVER ROOMING HERE AT SHIZ ...

[ELPHABA]
BUT OF COURSE, I'LL CARE FOR NESSA ...

[GLINDA]
BUT OF COURSE, I'LL RISE ABOVE IT ...

[BOTH]
FOR I KNOW THAT'S HOW YOU'D WANT ME TO RESPOND
YES, THERE'S BEEN SOME CONFUSION
FOR YOU SEE, MY ROOM-MATE IS ...

[GLINDA]
UNUSUALLY AND EXCEEDINGLY PECULIAR
AND ALTOGETHER QUITE IMPOSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE ...

[ELPHABA]
BLONDE.

[GLINDA]
WHAT IS THIS FEELING
SO SUDDEN AND NEW?

[ELPHABA]
I FELT THE MOMENT
I LAID EYES ON YOU ...

[GLINDA]
MY PULSE IS RUSHING ...

[ELPHABA]
MY HEAD IS REELING ...

[GLINDA]
MY FACE IS FLUSHING ...

[BOTH]
WHAT IS THIS FEELING?
FERVID AS A FLAME
DOES IT HAVE A NAME?
YES!...
LOATHING
UNADULTERATED LOATHING ...

[GLINDA]
FOR YOUR FACE...

[ELPHABA]
YOUR VOICE ...

[GLINDA]
YOUR CLOTHING ...

[BOTH]
LET'S JUST SAY -- I LOATHE IT ALL!
EV'RY LITTLE TRAIT, HOWEVER SMALL
MAKES MY VERY FLESH BEGIN TO CRAWL
WITH SIMPLE UTTER LOATHING
THERE'S A STRANGE EXHILARATION
IN SUCH TOTAL DETESTATION
IT'S SO PURE! SO STRONG!
THOUGH I DO ADMIT IT CAME ON FAST
STILL I DO BELIEVE THAT IT CAN LAST
AND I WILL BE LOATHING
LOATHING YOU
MY WHOLE LIFE LONG!

[STUDENTS]
DEAR GLINDA, YOU ARE JUST TOO GOOD!
HOW DO YOU STAND IT? I DON'T THINK I COULD!
SHE'S A TERROR! SHE'S A TARTAR!
WE DON'T MEAN TO SHOW A BIAS
BUT GLINDA YOU'RE A MARTYR!

[GLINDA]
WELL ... THESE THINGS ARE SENT TO TRY US!

[STUDENTS]
POOR GLINDA, FORCED TO RESIDE
WITH SOMEONE SO DISGUSTICIFIED
WE JUST WANT TO TELL YOU ...
WE'RE ALL ON YOUR SIDE!
WE SHARE YOUR ...

WHAT IS THIS FEELING

EV'RY LITTLE TRAIT
HOWEVER SMALL

MAKES OUR VERY FLESH
BEGIN TO CRAWL..

[ALL:]
AHHH...
LOATHING!

[GLINDA AND ELPHABA:]
[Here students sing "Loathing" in counter point a number of times]
THERE'S A STRANGE EXHILARATION
IN SUCH TOTAL DETESTATION
SO PURE, SO STRONG!

[STUDENTS]
SO STRONG!

[GLINDA AND ELPHABA]
[Students sing back-up "loathing"]
THOUGH I DO ADMIT IT CAME ON FAST

UNADULTERATED LOATHING

[ELPHABA]
