Tin Man. Oh, the smith gave me tin riddance?but, forgot to put a heart inside.
Female singers. Then he banged his hallow chest and cried!
Tin Man. When a man's an empty kettle, he should be on his metal and yet I'm torn apart. Just because I'm presumin', that I could kinda human, if I only had a heart. I'd be tender; I'd be gentle, and awful sentimental, regarding love an art. I'd be friends with the sparrows and the boy who shoots the arrows if I only had a heart. Picture me a balcony, above the voice sings low.
Dorothy. Wherefore art thou, Romeo?
Tin Man. I hear a beat, how sweet. Just to register emotion, Jealousy, devotion, and really feel the part. I would stay young and chipper and I'd lock it with a zipper if I only had a heart. (Musical break) JUST TO REGISTER EMOTION, JEALOUSY, DEVOTION AND REALLY FEEL THE PART! I'd be friends with the sparrows and the boy who shoots the arrows! I'd stay young and chipper and I'd lock it with a zipper! It's because I'm presumin' that I could kinda human! If I only, if I only, had a heart!!!!!!
