"No Good Deed" as written by and Stephen Lawrence Schwartz....
Eleka Nahmen Nahmen
Ah Tum Ah Tum Eleka Nahmen
Eleka Nahman Nahmen
Ah Tum Ah Tum Eleka Nahmen...

Let his flesh not be torn
Let his blood leave no stain
Though they beat him
Let him feel no pain
Let his bones never break
And however they try
To destroy him
Let him never die!
Let him never die!

Eleka Nahmen Nahmen
Ah Tum Ah Tum Eleka Nahmen
Eleka Nahmen Nahmen
Ah Tum Ah Tum Eleka... Eleka...


What goot is this chanting?
I don't even know what I'm reading!
I don't even know what trick I ought to try
Fiyero, where are you?
Already dead or bleeding?
One more disaster I can add to my
Generous supply?

No good deed goes unpunished!
No act of charity goes unresented!
No good deed goes unpunished!
That's my new creed!
My road of good intentions
Led where such roads always lead
No good deed
Goes unpunished...

Doctor Dillamond...

One question haunts and hurts
Too much, too much to mention:
Was I really seeking good
Or just seeking attention?
Is that all good deeds are
When looked at with and ice-cold eye?
If that's all good deeds are
Maybe that's the reason why...

No good deed goes unpunished!
All helpful urges should be circumvented!
No good deed goes unpunished
Sure I meant well --
Well, look at what well-meant did...
All right, enough-- so be it!
So be it then:
Let all Oz be agreed
I'm Wicked through and through
Since I cannot succeed
Fiyero, saving you
I promise no good deed
Will I attempt to do
Ever again!
No good deed
Will I do
