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,


I'd be clever as a gizzard,


If the wizard was a wizard who would serve,


Then I'm sure to get a brain!

Tin Man:

A heart!


A home!


The nerve!
