If I Only Ate Some Brain

TTTO “If I Only Had a Brain” from “The Wizard of Oz”

I could scare away the cowards
As for food I have scoured
And I would not dare complain
And my itch I’d be scratchin’
And the victims dispatching
If I only ate some brain.

I’d consume every grey cell
It would be just like in hell
With trouble and some pain

With the teeth that are sinkin’
Yes, my lips I’d be lickin’
If I only ate some brain

Oh, I could tell you why
The skull’s best is at the core
I could eat brains like I never ate before
And then I’d go and eat some more.

I would not be just a nuffin’
As my face I’d be stuffin’
I would not experience pain
I would dance and be merry
And I would put on top a cherry
When I only ate some brain
