If I Only Had the Nerve is a song from The Wizard of Oz.


Cowardly Lion: 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 dandylion

A fate I don't deserve

I'd be brave as a blizzard

Tin Woodsman: I'd be gentle as a lizard

Scarecrow: I'd be clever as a gizzard

Dorothy: If the Wizard is a wizard who will serve

Scarecrow: Then I'm sure to get a brain

Tin Woodsman: A heart

Dorothy: A home

Cowardly Lion: The nerve
