Kristin Chenoweth — What Is This Feeling? lyrics

Galinda(Spoken):
Dearest and darling-est momsie and popsicle,

Elphaba(Spoken):
Dear Father,

Both:
There's been some confusion over rooming here at Shiz

Elphaba:
But of course i'll care for Nessa

Galinda:
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,

Galinda:
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar
And alltogether impossible to describe

Elphaba:
Blonde

Galinda:
What is this feeling so sudden and new

Elphaba:
I felt the moment, I laid eyes on you

Galinda:
My pulse is rushing

Elphaba:
My head is reeling

Galinda:
My face is flushing

Both:
What is this feeling?
Fervid as a flame
Does it have a name?
Yes!
Loathing, unadulterated loathing!

Galinda:
For your face

Elphaba:
Your voice

Galinda:
Your clothing

Both:
Let's just say,
I loathe it all!
Every little trait however small,
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There's a strang exhilleration
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!

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!

Galinda:
Well, these things are sent to try us!

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...

Galinda and Elphaba:
