Thank Goodness is the song that is sung when the second act starts.


The people is oz are at a party with, Glinda, Fiyero and Madame Morrible. The people is oz are wondering where 'The Wicked Witch of the West' will strike next, one of them said they heard she had another eye, at always stayed awake. Another said that they heard she could shed her skin like a snake, one said they heard rebel animals were giving her food and shelter, while the last they heard her soul was so dirty pure water could melt her, Fiyero is mad, and he says people were so empty-headed they would think anything, Glinda is mad with him, and to go and fight, they kind of make up with each other, and Glinda returns saying he was getting her a drink, she says that she could not have been more happy. This is one of the less popular songs in the play. The song in the play before this is Defying gravity, and the song after it, the wicked witch of the east.

Sung=Normal Text


Citizens of Oz

Every day, more Wicked!

Every day, the terror grows!

All of Oz is ever on alert!

That's the way with Wicked

Spreading fear wherever she goes

Seeking out new victims she can hurt

Like some terrible green blizzard

Throughout the land she flies! Defaming our poor Wizard With her calumnies and lies!

She lies!

Save us from the Wicked

Shield us so we won't be hexed!

Give us a warning

Where will she strike next?

Where will she strike next?

Where will she strike next?


 Fellow Ozians, as terrifying as terror is,

Let us put aside our panic for this one day, and celebrate!

Oh, what a celebration

We'll have today


Thank Goodness


Let's have a celebration

The Glinda way!


Thank Goodness

Madame Morrible

Finally a day that's

Totally Wicked-Witch free!


We couldn't be happier

Thank Goodness


Yes, we couldn't be happier

Right, dear?

Couldn't be happier

Right here

Look what we've got

A faity tale plot

Our very own happy ending

Where we couldn't be happier

True, dear?

Couldn't be happier

And we're happy to share

Our ending vicariously

With all of you

He couldn't look handsomer

I couldn't feel humbler

We couldn't be happier

Because happy is what happens

When all your dreams come true!

Madame Morrible

 And Glinda, dear, we're happy for you!

As Press Secretary, I have striven to ensure that all of Oz

Knows the story of your braverism

The day you were fisrt summoned

To an audience with Oz

And although he would not tell you why initially

When you bowed before his throne

He decreed you'd hence be known

As Glinda the Good, officially

Then with a jealous squeal

The Wicked Witch burst from concealment

Where she had been lurking, surreptitially!


I hear she has an extra eye

That always remains awake

I hear that she can shed her skin

As easily as a snake!

I hear some rebel animals

Are giving her food and shelter!

I hear her soul is so unclean 

Pure water can melt her




Melt her?

Please, somebody go and melt her!


 Do you hear that? Water will melt her?

People are so empty-headed, they'll believe anything


 Fiyero! Oh, yes. Thanks plenty, dearest.

He's gone to fetch me a refreshment.

He's so thoughtful that way!

That's why I couldn't be happier

No, I couldn't be happier

Though it is, I admit

The tiniest bit

Unlike I antecipated

But I couldn't be happier

Simply couldn't be happier

 Well, not simply

'Cause getting your dreams

It's strange

But it seems

A little - well - complicated

There's a kind of, a sort of cost

There's a couple of things get lost

There are bridges you cross

You didn't know you crossed

Until you've crossed

And if that joy, that thrill

Doesn't thrill like you think it will

Still, with this perfect finale

The cheers and ballyhoo

Who wouldn't be happier

So I couldn't be happier

Because happy is what happens

When all your dreams come true

Well, isn't it?

Happy is what happens

When your dreams come true!


We love you, Glinda, if we may be so frank


Thank Goodness!


For all this joy

We know who we've got to thank

Thank Goodness!

That means the Wizard, Glinda...


And fiance!


They couldn't be goodlier

She couldn't be lovelier

We couldn't be luckier


I couldn't be happier


Thank Goodness!

Glinda and Ozians


Thank Goodness for today!
