No One Mourns The Wicked Lyrics

CITIZENS OF OZ
Good news! She's dead!
The Witch of the West is dead!
The wickedest witch there ever was
The enemy of all of us here in Oz
Is dead!
Good news!
Good news!

OZIAN
(Spoken)
Look! It's Glinda!

GALINDA
(Spoken)
Fellow Ozians

(Sung)
Let us be glad
Let us be grateful
Let us rejoicify that goodness could subdue
The wicked workings of you-know-who
Isn't it nice to know
That good will conquer evil?
The truth we all believe'll by and by
Outlive a lie
For you and

MALE OR FEMALE OZIAN
No one mourns the wicked

FEMALE OZIAN
No one cries "They won't return!"

OZIANS
No one lays a lily on their grave

MALE OZIAN
The good man scorns the wicked!

FEMALE OZIANS
Through their lives, our children learn

OZIANS
What we miss, when we misbehave

GALINDA
And Goodness knows
The wicked's lives are lonely
Goodness knows
The wicked die alone
It just shows when you're wicked
You're left only
On your own

OZIANS
Yes, goodness knows
The wicked's lives are lonely
Goodness knows
The wicked cry alone
Nothing grows for the wicked
They reap only
What they've sown

GALINDA
(Spoken)
Are people born wicked?
Or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?
After all, she had
a father. She had a mother, as so many do

FATHER (FREX)
How I hate to go and leave you lonely.

MOTHER (MELENA)
That's alright - it's only just one night.

FATHER (FREX)
But know that you're here in my heart
While I'm out of your sight

GALINDA
(Spoken)
And like every family - they had their secrets

LOVER
Have another drink, my dark-eyed beauty
I've got one more night left, here in town
So have another drink of green elixir
And we'll have ourselves a little mixer
Have another swallow, little lady,
And follow me down

GALINDA
(Spoken)
And of course, from the moment she was born, she was - well - different

MIDWIFE (NANNY)
It's coming

FATHER (FREX)
Now?

MIDWIFE (NANNY)
The baby's coming

FATHER (FREX)
And how!

MIDWIFE (NANNY) and FATHER (FREX)
I see a nose
I see a curl
It's a healthy, perfect,
Lovely, little

MIDWIFE (NANNY)
AAAHHH!!!!

FATHER (FREX)
(Spoken)
Sweet Oz!

MOTHER (MELENA)
(Spoken)
What is it? what's wrong?

MIDWIFE (NANNY)
How can it be?

FATHER (FREX)
What does it mean?

MIDWIFE (NANNY)
It's atrocious

FATHER (FREX)
It's obscene!

MIDWIFE (NANNY) and FATHER (FREX)
Like a froggy, ferny cabbage
The baby is unnaturally

ALL
Green!

FATHER (FREX)
(Spoken)
Take it away; take it away!

GALINDA
(Spoken)
So you see - it couldn't have been easy!

OZIANS
No one mourns the wicked!
Now at last, she's dead and gone!
Now at last, there's joy throughout the land
And goodness knows
Who spurn what Goodnesses
Goodness knows
The wicked die alone

GALINDA
She died alone

OZIANS
Woe to those
Who spurn what Goodness is
They are shown
No one mourns the Wicked

GALINDA
Good news!

OZIANS
No one mourns the Wicked!

GALINDA
Good news!

OZIANS and GALINDA
No one mourns the Wicked!
Wicked!
Wicked!
