Making Good (Wicked 5th anniversary special edition)
That hagged-faced hag who's pointing me with a sneer,
I don't see her.
Those giggling girls with the whispers they want me to hear,
I don't hear them,
The boy with a spifle behind me, if I suddenly turn...
Oh look, he's lost his nerve!
Right now I'm their pray, right now I'm their quarry
But there'll come a day when they all will be sorry
And sorry will be all that they deserve.
At long long last, I'm making my way
Out of here!
Erase the past
And as of today, clean and clear
Today I start my quest
To find my special destiny
Do more than just the best I could
Cause in my gut, I know I can do something great
I don't know what yet, but when I'm through, just you wait
When they see all I've done, they'll tell me you're so wonderful
We wish back then we'd understood
You'd be making good
Good, I'll be making good
Undertaking new inventions or discoveries
Maybe find a cure for some disease
Maybe I can make world hunger cease
Or else maybe paint a masterpiece!
Something that astounds!
Something that amazes!
Something that has everybody singing my praises!
At long long last, I'm taking my turn
And my, oh my!
Just watch how fast I'm going to learn
How to fly!
Just watch the lightning strike!
And when they see what I can do
All Oz will love me like they should
In a likelyhood!
Once I'm making good!
Unlimited - my future is unlimited!
And I've just had a vision almost like a prophecy
I know - you can call me crazy
And true, the vision's hazy
But I swear, someday there'll be
A celebration throughout Oz
That's all to do with me
At long long last, they're cheering my name
And what's more..
Guess what all bastards come here to claim
Credit for this magic child of his!
To say how proud he's of me!
For doing things the Wizard could not even contemplate!
So you can go ahead and laugh
'Til your sides are aching
But if I do half
The wonders I feel waking
You'll be cheering after
I am finished making good
No, not making good..
