(Galinda, spoken) Dearest, darlingest mumsie and popsicle...
(Elphaba, spoken) My dear father...
(Both) There's been some confusion over rooming here at Shiz.
(Elphaba) But of course I'll care for Nessa.
(Galinda) 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 roommate is...
(Galinda) Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
(Galinda) What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
(Elphaba) I felt the moment I laid eyes on you.
(Galinda) My pulse is rushing.
(Elphaba) My head is reeling
(Galinda, spoken) My face is flushing.
(Both) What is this feeling? Fervid as a flame, does it have a name? Yes... Yes
Loathing! Unadulterated loathing!
(Galinda, spoken) For your face,
(Elphaba, spoken) Your voice,
(Galinda) Your clothing!
(Both) Let's just say- I loathe it all!
Every little trait how ever 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! ( 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.
(Ensemble) Dear Galinda, you are just too good!
How do you stand her, I don't think I could.
She's a terror, she's a tartar,
We don't mean to show a bias
But Galinda, you're a martyr!
(Galinda) Well, these things are sent to try us...
(Ensemble) Poor Galinda, forced to reside
With someone so disgusticified,
We just want to tell you, we're all on your side!
(Ensemble, background) We share your loathing, unadulterated loathing,
(Both)What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
(Ensemble, background) For her face, her voice, her clothing,
(Both)I felt the moment I laid eyes on you.
My pulse is rushing, my head is reeling.
(Ensemble, background) Let's just say-we loathe it all!
(Both) Oh, what is this feeling?!
(Ensemble, background) Ev'ry little trait, however small,
(Both) Does it have a name?
(Ensemble) Makes our very flesh begin to crawl,
(Together) Ahhhhh... loathing!
(Both)There's a strange exhilaration, (loathing!)
In such total detestation, (Loathing!)
It's so pure, so strong! (So strong!)
Though I do admit, it came on fast, still I do believe that it can last!
And I will be loathing for forever,(Loathing...)
Loathing, truly deeply (Loathing...)
Loathing you, (Loathing you....)
My whole life long!
(Ensemble) Loathing, unadulterated loathing!
