If I Only Had a Heart | Jack Haley | Wizard of Oz

Song lyrics to If I Only Had a Heart, sung by Jack Haley in The Wizard of Oz

Tin Man (Jack Haley)
When a man’s an empty kettle
He should be on his mettle
And yet I’m torn apart
Just because I’m presumin’
That I could be kind a human
If I only had a heart.

If I Only Had a Heart song lyrics - sung by the Tin Man (Jack Haley) in The Wizard of OzI’d be tender, I’d be gentle
And awful sentimental
Regarding love and 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 a voice sings low–

Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

I hear a beat.
How sweet!
Just to register emotion.
Jealousy, devotion
And really feel the part
I could stay young and chipper
And I’d lock it with a zipper
If I only had a heart.
