OVER THE RAINBOW
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high,
there's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby. Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that
you dare to dream really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind
me. Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me.
over the rainbow blue birds fly, birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I? If happy little bluebirds
fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh why, can't I?

COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE
Come out, come, out, wherever you are, and meet the young
lady who fell from a star. She fell from the sky, she fell very far and Kansas she says, is the name of the star (Kansas
she says, is the name of the star).
She brings you good news, or haven't you heard? When she fell out
of Kansas, a miracle occurred.

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'd be thinkin' you could be another Lincoln)
If I only had a brain.
Oh, I could tell you why the ocean's near the shore. (You could think of things
you never thunk before) And then I'd sit, and think some more.

IF I ONLY
HAD A HEARTWhen 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 that 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!)

IF I ONLY
HAD THE NERVE
Life is 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 dandy-lion, 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, you'd be in your stride, a king down to the core. You
could roar the way you never roared before) and then I'd Rrrwooff! And roar some more.

OLD LAND OF OZ
Ha-ha-ha! Ho-ho-ho! And a couple of tra-la-las!
That's how we laugh the day away in the merry old land of Oz. Buzz-buzz-buzz! Chirp-chirp-chirp! And a couple
of la-dee-das...that's how the crickets crick all day, in the merry old land of Oz. We get up at 12 and start to
work at 1. Take an hour for lunch and then at 2 we're done. (Jolly good fun!) Ha-ha-ha! Ho-ho-ho! And a couple of tra-la-las! That's
how we laugh the day away in the merry old land of Oz.

a Who-sis...It's a Who-sis? It's a What-sis...It's a What-sis? Who's that? Who's there?
Who's where? Beware!!)
Who's that hiding in the treetops? It's that rascal, the Jitterbug.
Should you catch him buzzing 'round you, keep away from the Jitterbug. Oh, the bees in the breeze, and the bats
in the trees, have a terrible, horrible buzz. But the bees in the breeze, and the bats in the trees couldn't do
what the Jitterbug does. So, just be careful of that rascal, keep away from the Jitterbug...the Jitterbug.
