Lyrics 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 every riddle for any individ'le in trouble or in pain
With the thoughts
I'll be thinkin'
I could be another Lincoln if I 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 nothin' 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
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 kinda 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
Yeah, it's sad, believe me missy when you're born to be a sissy without the vim and verve
But I could change my habits never more be scared of rabbits if I only had the nerve
I'm afraid there's no denyin'
I'm just a dandelion a fate I don't deserve
But I could show my prowess be a lion, not a mow-ess if I only had the nerve
Oh I'd be in my stride a king down to the core
I can roar the way
I never roared before
And then I'd woof and roar some more
I would show the dinosaurus who's king around the forest a king they'd better serve
With my regal buh-zeezer
I could be another Caesar if I only had the nerve
