Wicked what is this feeling lyrics in description

What is this Feeling? is a song from Wicked. In the song, Elphaba and Galinda(later known as Glinda) arrive at Shinz High School where they meet and immediately loathe one another with the other students fawning over Glinda and discriminating Elphaba because of her skin. This contrasts later on when the two girls become friends..
