If I Only Had The Nerve lyrics

When you're born to be a sissy
Without the vim and verve

But I could show my prowess
Be a lion, not a mouse
If I only had the nerve

I'm afraid there's no denyin'
I'm just a dandelion
A fate I don't deserve

I'd be brave as a blizzard
I'd be gentle as a lizard
I'd be clever as a gizzard

If the Wizard is a Wizard who will serve?
Then I'm sure to get a brain
A heart, a home, the nerve

When you're born to be a sissy
Without the vim and verve
