Dancing Through Life (Wicked)

Fiyero: The trouble with schools is They always try to teach the wrong lesson Believe me, I've been kicked out Of enough of them to know They want you to become less callow Less shallow But I say: Why invite stress in? Stop studying strife And learn to live "the unexamined life" Dancing through life Skimming the surface Gliding where turf is smooth Life's more painless For the brainless Why think too hard? When it's so soothing Dancing through life No need to tough it When you can sluff it off as I do Nothing matters But knowing nothing matters It's just life So keep dancing through... Dancing through life Swaying and sweeping And always keeping cool Life is fraught less When you're thoughtless Those who don't try Never look foolish Dancing through life Mindless and careless Make sure your wear less Trouble in life Woes are fleeting Blows are glancing When you're dancing Through life... So--whats the most swankified place in town? Galinda: That would be the Ozdust Ballroom Fiyero: Sounds perfect! Lets go down to the Ozdust Ballroom We'll meet there later tonight We can dance till it's light Find the prettiest girl Give her a whirl Right on down to the Ozdust Ballroom Come on, ollow me You'll be happy to be there all: Dancing through life Down at the Ozdust... Fiyero: If only because dust is what we come to... All: Nothing matters But knowing nothing matters It's just life... Fiyero: So keep dancing through... Boq: Miss Galinda- I hope you'll save at least one dance for me. I'll be right there, waiting, all night. Galinda: Oh- That's so kind. But you know what would Be even kinder? See that tragically beautiful girl The one in the chair It seems so unfair We should go on a spree And not she Gee- I know someone would be my hero If that someone were To go invite her... Boq: Well, maybe I could invite her! Galinda: Oh, Bick, really? You would do that for me? Boq: I would do anything for you, Miss Galinda Galinda: So... Fiyero: So I'll be picking you up around eight?
