I Wish by Stevie Wonder is featured in Wonder-ful, the twenty-first episode of Season Four. It is sung by Jake with the New Directions. 

Mike tells the Glee Club that since the week is dedicated to celebrating wonderful things, he wants to celebrate wonderful talent. Sam gets up as a joke, pretending it was him, but Mike calls upon Jake to stop being modest and the song begins. Jake leads as Mike and Jake perform unique and classy dance moves. Marley even speaks a line in the song as New Directions assist in back-up and clapping. Will is seen incredibly intrigued by Jake's dance moves.

At the end of the song, Mike leaves Jake to have a dance solo. Jake does an incredible jump as everyone claps with Will, Marley, Blaine, and Sam hugging and going towards him. Mike explains to Kurt that the plan will work with Jake's moves for Regionals but Mercedes isn't here to see it, and he questions her absence. 

Lyrics

Jake:
Looking back on when I
Was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry
Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes
Would not get a thing
We were happy with the
Joy the day would bring

Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine, uh-woah
Greeted at the back door
With "boy thought I told you not to go outside"
Tryin' your best to bring the
Water to your eyes
Thinkin' it might stop her
From woopin' your behind

Jake with New Directions:
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
Cause I love them so

Jake:
Brother says he's tellin'
'Bout you playin' doctor with that girl
Just don't tell and I'll give you
Anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

Smokin' cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall

Marley:
You nasty boy!

Jake:
Teacher sends you to the principal's office down the hall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain't right
But while you were doin' it, it sure felt outta sight

Jake with New Directions:
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go

Jake:
Ow! Why did they have to go, yeah
Ooh, yeah, hooo, mhm, uuh
Oh, oh, yeah, hey, uh-woah

Jake with New Directions:
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
