One Short Day ELPHABA
(spoken) Come with me. To the Emerald City.

TOURISTS:
One short day
In the Emerald City



GLINDA:
(spoken) Oh, I've always wanted to see the Emerald City!

TOURISTS:
One short day
In the Emerald City

One short day:
In the Emerald City
One short day
Full of so much to do
Ev'ry way
That you look in the city
There's something exquisite
You'll want to visit
Before the day's through

ELPHABA:
There are buildings tall as Quoxwood trees!

GLINDA:
Dress salons!

ELPHABA:
Libraries!

GLINDA:
Palaces!

ELPHABA:
Museums!

BOTH:
A hundred strong
There are wonders like I've never seen

GLINDA:
It's all grand

ELPHABA:
It is all green!

BOTH:
And I think we've found the place where we belong!
I wanna be
In this hoi polloi

ELPHABA:
So I'll be back for good someday

GLINDA:
To make my life and make my way

BOTH:
But for today, we'll wander and enjoy:

ALL:
One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
To have a lifetime of fun
One short day

BOTH:
And we're warning the city
Now that we're in here
You'll know we've been here

ALL
Before we are done!

GLINDA:
(spoken) Elphie - come on - we'll be late for Wizomania!

WIZOMANIA CHORUS:
Who's the mage
Whose major itinerary
Is making all Oz merrier?
Who's the sage
Who's sagely sailed in to save our posteriors?
Whose enthuse for hot air ballooning
Has all of Oz honeymooning?
Woo - oo -oo
Wizn't he wonderful?
(Our wonderful Wizard!)

AUDIENCE WIZOMANIA CHORUS
One short day Who's the mage
In the Emerald City Whose major itinerary
One short day Is making all Oz merrier
To have a lifetime Whose the sage who
Of fun Sagely sailed in to save
What a way Our posteriors
To be seeing the city:

ELPHABA AND GLINDA
Where so many roam to
We'll call it home, too
And then, just like now
We can say:
We're just two friends

ELPHABA
Two good friends

GLINDA
Two best friends
TOURISTS
Sharing one wonderful
One short...

GUARD
(spoken) The Wizard will see you now!

ALL:
Day!
