Yeh, 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 denying
I'm just an awful dandy-lion
A fate I don't deserve

But I could show my prowess
Be a lion, not a mouse
If I only had the nerve

Oh I'd be in my stride
A king down to the core
Oh I roar the way I never roared before
And then I'd rrwuff
And roar some more

I would show the dinosaurus
Who's king around the forus
A king they's better serve

And with my regal beezer
I could be another ceaser
If I only had the nerve

I'd be brave as a blizzard
I'd be gentle as a lizard
I'd be clever as a gizzard
If the Wizard is a Wizard who will serve?

Then I'm sure to get a brain
A heart, a home, the nerve

We're off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz
We hear that he is a whiz of a wiz
If ever a wiz was there
If ever, oh ever a wiz there was
The Wizard of Oz is one because, because, because, because, because, because
Of the wonderful things he does
We're off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz
