(Scare Crowed)
I could wile away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Confirmin' all my fear
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were stumblin' hatchin'
If I only had a beer

I'd unravel any riddle
For my own divid'le
In trouble or in fear

With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'
You could do a bit more drinkin'
If you only had a beer

Oh, I would tell you why
I don't have one right now
As I have had some before
'Cause I could drink that much more

I would not be just a drinkin'
From life be so much stinkin'
My heart so full of tears
I would stumble and be humble
Life would be a bit more tol'rable
If I only had some beers

Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain

    General CommentDid you know that they cut the original song, thus cutting the last verse of this song? Yes ideady! Though, I've got to say, it was mostly a very lengthly dance.

    Cut verse (at the end):

    Gosh, it would be pleasin'
    To reason out the reason
    To things I can't explain
    And perhaps I'll deserve ya
    And be worthy erve ya
    If I only had a brain

    "If I Only Had a Brain" has very malleable lyrics, and I find myself remembering many catchy phrases that aren't there when I look 'em up.

    In this case, I think you remember the equally zippy tune "Sunny Side of the Street":

    "If I never have a cent I'd be rich as Rockefeller
    I'd have gold dust at my feet on the sunny
    On the sunny on the sunny side of the street"
