(Lucy: Why are we supposed to trust you?) Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi: I'll tell you using the universal language.

Lucy and the Queen before the song

Not Evil is a song sung by Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The song is meant to convince Lucy, Benny, Batman, Unikitty and MetalBeard that Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi is - as the title suggests - not the antagonist. Although she succeeds in this with Benny, Batman, Unikitty and MetalBeard, via presents she offered them, Lucy still remains suspicious of her nonetheless.

Composition

The song is set in the key of D major, with two sharps (F and C), and is fairly fast with its tempo being approximately 130 beats per minute. It is sung by Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi and all the captured Master Builders with the dubious distinction of Lucy who remains highly skeptical and suspicious of the queen's true nature. She instead provides some resisting remarks during parts of the song.

The instruments which are featured include percussion (one of which are drums), a heavy use of strings and woodwind, and brass instruments. There is also a choir in the form of the queen's entourage which provides background ambient chanting.

Lyrics

[Stanza 1]

Lucy: Oh no, are we in a musical?

Batman: Film: Yep, get ready.
            Soundtrack: I hope not.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Hello friends, my name is Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi.
Don't worry, I'm totally not one of those evil queens
You've read about in fairy tales or seen in the movies
And there's no reason at all to be suspicious of... me!

Royal Guards: Not evil, not evil, no. The least evil person I know.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Mhmm!

Lucy: I won't lie, it's actually very suspicious that you're leading with this.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: I'm so not a villain, I have zero evil plans.
No ulterior motives, just want to help where I can!
I want to shower you with gifts 'cause I'm selfless and sweet!
So there's no reason at all to be suspicious of...

[Chorus 1]

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi, the least evil queen in history!
And if you do not believe me!
I totally won't imprison your family!
'Cause that'd be evil! And that's so.... not me!

Royal Guards: Not evil, not evil, no. The least evil person I know.

Lucy: Really? Because I'm getting super evil vibes here.

(Royal Guards: Not evil, not evil, no. The least evil person I know.)

[Stanza 2]

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Benny, do you like spaceships? ‘Cause I think they are GREAT!!

Benny: How'd you know that? Loving spaceships is my one defining trait!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Well, now my good friend you can build the spaceships of your dreams
On your very own planet with your most spaceship building team!

Benny: (Gasps)

Lucy: Come on, do not fall for this!

Benny: Wyldstyle! Haven't you heard?
There's no reason at all to be suspicious of... her!

Royal Guards: Not evil, not evil, no. The least evil person I know.

Lucy: Yeah, I know she keeps saying that, but she's clearly an evil queen!

MetalBeard: Yargh! Well I'm not buying it!

[Stanza 3]

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: MetalBeard, a pirate without a ship, that's so cruel!
It's like a spider without a web or a queen without a fool!

Lucy: Even her metaphors are suspicious!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: I've got a surprise for you!
A planet that's really a pirate ship and the population's your crew!

MetalBeard: Her story checks out, she's cool, not evil.

[Stanza 4, 5]

Unikitty: What about me?

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Unikitty, what's the most glitter you can imagine?

Unikitty: A lot!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Times that by infinty!

Unkitty: Woo-hoo!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: And Batman-

Batman: Don't even try it, lady! I don't need anything.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Oh, I know that's why I'm going to give you half of everything.

Batman: Uh, like, everything, everything?

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Everything, everything.

Batman: She's rad. This chick gets me.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Here's some other adjectives people use to describe me,
"Un-duplicitous", "un-malicious", "un-conniving", "un-nasty"!

Lucy: You're just adding "un" to words that describe you.

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Who, me?

[Chorus 2]

I'm Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi! The most least evil person you'll ever meet!
And if you make eye contact with me, I totally won't have you executed immediately!
'Cause that'd be evil!

Banarnar and Flaminga: Evil!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Evil!

Royal Guards: Evil!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Evil!
And that's so... not me!

Extended version

I'm Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi! I never trick people into trusting me!
By hiding my true personality, so I can use them to accomplish my evil deeds!
'Cause that'd be evil, and that's so... not me!

[Bridge]

I never cheat, I never bribe, I never scheme, I never lie,
And that wasn't a lie, what I said just now,that I never lie, 'cause I never lie!
And I never laugh when children cry, and I never poison enemies of mine,
And I never cry when I'm alone at night, 'cause I'm not sad, I love my life!
I'm getting off track! Let me get back to the point I was making!
I'm Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi! The most least evil person you'll ever meet!
And if you make eye contact with me, I totally won't have you executed immediately!
'Cause that'd be evil!

Banarnar and Flaminga: Evil!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Evil!

Royal Guards: Evil!

Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi: Evil!
And that's so! Not...me.....
