When Google fails...

Okay. So, there's a song in West Side Story, where Maria sings:
I feel pretty,
Oh so pretty,
I feel pretty, and witty, and bright

Now, there's a permutation of that where they say
pretty and witty and wise
But it doesn't seem to be from West Side Story, yet there are dozens of people who've typed it that way (that Google sees).

So... I'm assuming that the Bernstein / Sondheim lyrics in West Side Story were the originals, but where did this "wise" permutation come from?
