Original Broadway Cast of Wicked
Something Bad
Oh, Miss Elphaba, the things one hears these days!
Dreadful things!

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 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 baaaad

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

So nothing bad....

I hope you're right

Nothing all that bad
Nothing truly baaaad

Sorry, bad

It couldn't happen here
In Oz...
