Oncie looked over to Once-ler, who stood with his eyes down casted. His mother was making him leave his one true love. Once-ler looked at him with sadness. The Fullmetal Heart agency offered both of them a job at the agency. Oncie would work for Sector 7 and Once-ler would work with his brother-in-law in Sector 13. Two of the agents, Phineas Flynn-Fletcher-Jones and Belle Kirkland, were standing next to Once-ler, waiting for his answer. "Oncie, time to go," his mother said, standing near the RV. Once-ler looks at him, now wearing his S-13 uniform similar to his green suit, except it was black sadly asked, "Are you coming or going with them?" He then begins to sing:

I hope you're happy!

I hope you're happy now

I hope you're happy how you hurt your cause forever

I hope you think you're clever!

Oncie then begins to sing along:

I hope you're happy

I hope you're happy, too

I hope you're proud how you would grovel in submission

To feed your own ambition

Together their voices rang through the skies.

So though I can't imagine how

I hope you're happy now

His mother looks into Oncie's eyes. "Oncie, listen to me. Just come with me."

You can still be with me

What you've worked and waited for

You can have all you ever wanted

Oncie looks at her. "I know…"

But I don't want it

No-I can't want it


Something has changed within me

Something is not the same

I'm through with playing by the rules

Of someone else's game

Too late for second-guessing

Too late to go back to sleep

It's time to trust my instincts

Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try

Defying gravity

I think I'll try

Defying gravity

And you can't pull me down

She looks at her son as if he's gone crazy. She then said:

"Can't I make you understand?

You're having delusions of grandeur!"

He looks at her with a brand-new light. His clothes turn into a beautiful white and golden uniform. He had made his decision.

I'm through accepting limits

'Cause someone says they're so

Some things I cannot change

But 'til I try, I'll never know!

Too long I've been afraid of

Losing love I guess I've lost

Well, if that's love

It comes at much too high a cost!

I'd sooner buy

Defying gravity

Kiss me goodbye

Defying gravity

And you can't pull me down

Once-ler smiles at Oncie's decision. They can be together forever. "Come with me," he says, "Think of what we could do together…."


Together we are unlimited

Together we'll be the greatest team

There's ever been

Once-ler grabs a hold of Oncie's hand. "Dreams, the way we planned 'em."

If we work in tandem

Oncie then joins in.

There's no fight we cannot win

Just you and I

Defying gravity

With you and I

Defying gravity

Oncie then sing alone.

They'll never bring us down!

"Well? Are you coming?" Oncie look at Once-ler when he asked that question. Once-ler then sang:

I hope your happy now

Now that you're choosing this

Oncie squeezed his hand, "You too."

I hope it brings you bliss

White bird and black bat wings appeared on their backs. As they headed towards the sky with the two agents right behind them.

I really hope you get it

And you don't live to regret it

I hope you're happy in the end

I hope you're happy, my friend

Oncie then looked down at his mother and with anger in his voice, he sang.

So if you care to find me

Look to the western sky

As someone told me lately:

"Ev'rybody deserves a chance to fly!"

And if I'm flying solo

At least I'm flying free

To those who'd ground me

Take a message back from me

Tell them how I am

Defying gravity

I'm flying high

Defying gravity

And soon I'll match them in renown

And nobody in all of Thneedville or Oz

No axes that there is or ever was

Is ever gonna bring me down

Once-ler joins in with his own solo.

I hope you're happy!

The townspeople see them in the sky. They sing along with them.

Look at them, their wicked!

Get them!

Oncie looks at them.

Bring me down!

The townspeople sing again.

No one mourns the wicked

So we've got to bring them…

Oncie, Once-ler, and the townspeople sing in unison.
