    If I Only Had ...

    ... a Brain

    I could while away the hours

    Conferrin' with the flowers

    Consultin' with the rain

    And my head, I'd be scratchin'

    While my thoughts were busy hatchin'

    If I only had a brain.

    I'd unravel ev'ry riddle

    For any individ'le

    In trouble or in pain

    With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'

    You could be another Lincoln,

    If you only had a brain.

    Oh, I could tell you why

    The ocean's near the shore,

    I could think of things I never thunk before

    And then I'd sit and think some more.

    I would not be just a nuffin'

    My head all full of stuffin'

    My heart all full of pain.

    I would dance and be merry

    Life would be a ding-a-derry

    If I only had a brain--Whoa!

    ... a

    When a man's an empty kettle

    He should be on his mettle

    And yet I'm torn apart

    Just because I'm presumin'

    That I could be kind-a human

    If I only had a heart.

    I'd be tender, I'd be gentle

    And awful sentimental

    Regarding love and art

    I'd be friends with the sparrows

    And the boy who shoots the arrows,

    If I only had a heart.

    Picture me ... a balcony ...

    Above a voice sings low--

    Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

    I hear a beat.

    How sweet!

    Just to register emotion.

    "Jealousy," "devotion"

    And really feel the part

    I could stay young and chipper

    And I'd lock it with a zipper

    If I only had a heart.

    ... the Nerve

    Yeah, it's sad, believe me missy,

    When you're born to be a sissy,

    Without the vim and verve.

    But I could show my prowess,

    Be a lion not a mowess,

    If I only had the nerve

    I'm afraid there's no denyin'

    I'm just a dandelion

    A fate I don't deserve.

    I'd be brave as a blizzard ...

    TIN MAN: I'd be gentle as a lizard ...

    SCARECROW: I'd be clever as a gizzard ...

    DOROTHY: If the Wizard is a wizard who will serve.

    SCARECROW: Then I'm sure to get a brain ...

    TIN MAN: ... a heart

    DOROTHY: a home

    LION: the nerve!
