something bad lyrics – idina menzel

(feat. william youmans)

[doctor 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 can only screech!
only rumors – but still –
enough to give pause
to anyone with paws
something bad is happening in oz…

something bad? happening in oz?

under the surface
behind the scenes
something baaaaaaad…
[spoken] sorry. “bad”

[elphaba (spoken)]
doctor dillamond – if something bad is happening
to the animals, someone’s got to tell the wizard.
that’s why we have a wizard.
[sung] so nothing bad….

[spoken] i hope you’re right…

nothing all that bad…

nothing truly baaaaaad….
[spoken] sorry… “bad”…

it couldn’t happen here
in oz…
