Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menze - One Short Day lyrics

Elphaba
Come with me, to the Emerald City...

Tourists
One short day in the Emerald City

Glinda
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 as tall as Quoxwood trees
Glinda
Dress salons
Elphaba
And libraries
Glinda
Palaces!
Elphaba
Museums!
Both
A hundred strong
There are wonders like I've never seen
Glinda
It's all grand
Elphaba
And it's all green!
Both
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

Tourists
One short day in the Emerald City
One short day to have a lifetime of fun
One short day
Glinda & Elphaba
And were warning the city
Now that we're in here
You'll know we've been here
All
Before we are done!

Glinda
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 sagely sailed in to save our posteriors?
Whose enthuse for hot air ballooning has all of Oz honeymooning?
Woooo, wizn't he wonderful?
Our wonderful Wizard!

Audience with Chorus
One short day in the Emerald City
(Who's the mage whose major itinerary is making all Oz merrier?)
One short day to have a lifetime of fun
(Who's the sage who sagely sailed in to save our posteriors?)
What a way to be seeing the city...

Elphaba & Glinda
Where so many roam to
We'll call it home, too
And then, just like now, we can say
Were just two friends
Elphaba
Two good friends
Glinda
Two best friends

All
Sharing one wonderful
One short...
Guard
The wizard will see you now!
All
...day!
