"Wicked Always Wins" is a song featured in the musical episode of Once Upon a Time. It was written by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner and performed by Rebecca Mader.


Having been spying on Regina begging Rumplestiltskin for help in stopping the singing spell, Zelena accidentally allows it to cross over to the Land of Oz. Upon seeing Rumple might reconsider choosing her to cast the Dark Curse, Zelena breaks out into song. Singing about her jealousy and wickedness, Zelena realizes that she can use the situation to her advantage by helping Regina seal away the singing spell and then claim credit for it to impress Rumple.


Finally the moment I was hoping would come
The moment he would realize he chose the wrong one
There isn't any curse I could cast to match this feeling

The pain I knew when Rumple turned his back on my heart
At last will be Regina's when her life falls apart
Suddenly, the future's looking more appealing

Once I was filled with rage
Now I'll enjoy the ride
It's so electrifying
Watching all her dreams denied

Oh, I will fly into tomorrow
My sister full of sorrow
Finally paying for her sins

I'll smile, all the while she is crying
Inside she's slowly dying
Learning wicked always wins

Oh, evil may be powerful
But wicked always wins

If mum could see me now, she would ache with regret 'Cause she'd witness all the glory wickedness gets She went and made Regina queen and my blood boil

But that's all history
Time they all understood
What they call green with envy
I just call looking good

Oh, I will fly into tomorrow
My sister full of sorrow
Finally paying for her sins

No strife, her life was so enchanted
She took it all for granted
Now she'll dream of could-have-beens

Oh, evil may be powerful
But wicked always--

Wait... Why just revel in her demise, when I can use it to my advantage?

I'll give her a magic gift to bring the Charmings down
When Regina stands victorious, I'll swoop right into town
When he learns the spell was mine, oh Rumple he will see
He should've chosen me

So, I will fly into tomorrow
Delighting in her sorrow
As a better day begins

This time, nobody's gonna stop me
No evil's gonna top me
Oh, wicked always wins

Her happy ending will be mine
'Cause wicked always wins
