If I Only A Nerve

Wizard Of Oz

Lion:
Yeh, it's sad, believe me, missy
When you're born to be a sissy
Without the vim and nerve.
But I could show my prowess, be a lion not a mou-ess
If I only had the nerve

I'm afraid there's no denying
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!
