The Lyrics

Imagine... Elphaba and Glinda and every one else are at a fat camp....
Something has changed within me
Something is just not right
I'm through with being hungry all
The time both day and ight
Too late for second-helpings
Too late for luncheon meat
It's time to trade my salad
Close my eyes: and eat!

It's time to try
Defying gravy
I think I'll try
Defying gravy
And you can't slim me down!

I'm through accepting limits
On what I cannot chew
Some things I cannot eat
But I can't resist barbeque
Too long I've been afraid of
Being fat so I've lost
Weight, if that's thin
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravy
Kiss thin goodbye
I'm defying gravy
And you can't slim me down:
(spoken) Glinda - come with me. Think of what we eat
do: together.

(sung) Unlimited
Together we're unlimited
Together we'll eat the greatest things
We ever have
Glinda -
Dreams, the way we cook 'em

Can we eat M and M's?

There's no reason to be thing
Just you and I
Defying gravy
With you and I
Defying gravy

They'll never slim us down!
(spoken) Well? Are you coming?

I hope you're happy
Now that you're eating this

(spoken) You too
(sung) I hope thin brings you bliss

I really hope you eat this
And you don't live to repeat this
I hope you eat well in the end
I hope you eat well, my friend:

So if you care to feed me
Look to the fat camp sky!
As someone told me lately:
"Even fat kids earn the chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo
I'll go to Dairy Queen
To those who lost weight,
Buy a happy meal for me
Tell them how I am
Defying gravy
I'm flying high
Defying gravy
And soon I'll match them in my pounds
And nobody in this whole camp
No matter if they're thin or fat
Is ever gonna slim me down!

I hope you're skinny!

Look at her, she's chubby!
Get her!

Slim me down!

No one likes the chubby
So we've got to slim her


I dont own wicked, the charecters, or m&m's, dairy queen, happy meals, and i think thats it.

I can see it now. Glinda trying to spell herself thin and Fiyero doing Tai Bo. Wonderful. 5s for you.

I love it. Plan to sing it karaoke style changing Defying gravy to enjoying gravy. Good job!
