What Is This Feeling?

Wicked


[Glinda]
(spoken) Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsical

[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

[Glinda]
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 room-mate is

[Glinda]
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar
And altogether quite impossible to describe

[Elphaba]
Blonde!

[Glinda]
What is this feeling?
So sudden and new?

[Elphaba]
I felt it the moment
I laid eyes on you

[Glinda]
My pulse is rushing

[Elphaba]
My head is reeling

[Glinda]
My face is flushing

[Both]
What is this feeling?
Fervid as a flame
Does it have a name?
Yes!
Loathing
Unadulterated loathing

[Glinda]
For your face

[Elphaba]
Your voice

[Glinda]
Your clothing

[Both]
Let's just say - I loathe it all
Ev'ry little trait, however 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 and 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!

[Students]
Dear Galinda, you are just too good
How do you stand it? 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!

[Glinda]
Well: these things are sent to try us!

Students
Poor Galinda, forced to reside
With someone so disgusticified
We all just want to tell you
We're all on your side!
We share your
