I could while away the hours
Conversing with the flowers
Consulting with the rain
My head I'd be scratching
While my thoughts were busy hatching
If I only had a brain

I could solve any riddle
For any individual
In trouble, or in pain
With the thoughts I'd be thinking
I would be another Lincoln
If I only had a brain

Oh, I could tell you why
The ocean's near the shore
I could think of things
I'd never thought before
And then I'd sit, and think some more

I would not be just a nothing
My head all full of stuffing
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
