No Good Deed - Wicked03:33

No Good Deed - Wicked

No Good Deed is a song from Wicked. In the song, Elphaba laments about how she wanted to do good, but is deemed as the Wicked Witch of the West after she supposingly killed Fiyero trying to save him and begins her face-heel turn.


Elphaba Fiyero!

Eleka nahmen nahmen

Ah tum ah tum eleka nahmen

Eleka nahmen 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 good 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 an 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 can not succeed

Fiyero, saving you

I promise no good deed

Will I attempt to do


Ever again

No good deed

Will I do
