Lyrics Edit

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 roomate 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 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!
Every little trait, however small
Makes my very flash begin to crawl

With simple utter loathing
There's a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It's so pure, 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!

Shiz 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 martar!

Galinda
Well, these things are sent to try us!

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

Both (Shiz Students)
What is this feeling, so sudden and new? (Loathing, unadulterated loathing)
I felt the moment I laid eyes on you (For her face, her voice, her clothing)
My pulse is rushing, my head is reeling (Let's just say, we loathe it all!)
Oh, what is this feeling? (Every little trait however small)
Does it have a name (Makes my very flash begin to crawl)
Yes, ahhh (Ahhh)

Loathing (Loathing)
There's a strange exhilaration (Loathing)
In such total detestation (Loathing)
It's so pure, so strong (So strong)

Both
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last

Both (Shiz Students)
And I will be loathing for forever (Loathing)
Loathing truly deeply (Loathing)
Loathing you (Loathing you)
My whole life long! (Loathing, unadulterated loathing

Elphaba
Boo!

Glinda
Ahh!
