If I only had a brain . . .

Scarecrow: I haven't got a brain… only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don't know… But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking… don't they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

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.


Honestly, don't you just love Dorothy's Scarecrow? While I was in Brenham last week they were celebrating their fifth annual Scarecrow Extravaganza with more than 40 scarecrows about town.


Oh, I could tell you why The ocean's near the shore.
I could think of things I never thunk before.
And then I'd sit, and think some more.
I would not be just a nothin' my head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry,
If I only had a brain.

Don't you just love the Fall?
