Our Mascot: The Scarecrow of Oz!

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 you'll 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 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.

Here's a verse deleted from the movie...
Gosh, it would be wafulpleasin
given out a reason
for things I can't explain,
and perhaps I'd deserve you
and be even worthy erv you,
if I only had a brain !
