Why did the scarecrow win a prize?
Because he was outstanding in his field.

How I wish this post hadn't put me in mind of the scarecrow in THE WIZARD OF OZ - now I can't stop singing the song .....

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'll be thinkin'
you could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain.

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.

I enjoyed this! I must learn the words because I hum this tune and sing "If I only had a brain" all the time. It is the only line I ever remember, I wonder if I can fit all those lines in my little tiny bear brain. After all, it is very difficult to be a bear of such very little brain!

Thanks (said somewhat irritably)... now you have the song on MY brain, too!!! At least you provided the words for me!

Cute song, but I'm REALLY glad I don't know it so it won't get stuck in my head. LoL

Very cute..Owh..now I remember Over The Rainbow song!It's my all time favorite!

How cute! I've never liked Wizard of Oz much. It terrified me when I was 5 - I was afraid of the tornado and the monkeys. The movie still disturbs me. I dislike E.T. for the same reason.

Have to groan about the joke ... but there are worse songs to have stuck in your head!

You know that you have an evil streak for putting that song into all of our heads, right? *L*
