  • H.I.V.E. =Hierarchy of International Vengeance and Extermination
  • A.I.M.= Advanced Idea Mechanics

Also, in case you were wondering if the Cowardly Lion originally had more lyrics to his song that were cut in the final edit of Wizard of Oz, here they are, along with the more familiar Scarecrow and Tin Woodman verses:


I could while away the hours, conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain.
And my head I’d be scratchin’ while
my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only had a brain.
I’d unravel every riddle for any individ’le,
In trouble or in pain.

With the thoughts you’d  be thinkin’
I could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain.

Oh, I could tell you why The ocean’s near the shore.
I could think of things I never thunk before.
And then I’d sit, and think some more.
I would not be just a nuffin’ my head all full of stuffin’
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.


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 heart.
I’d be tender – I’d be gentle and awful sentimental
Regarding Love and Art.
I’d be friends with the sparrows …
and the boys 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.


Life is sad, believe me, Missy,
When you’re born to be a sissy
Without the vim and verve.
But I could change my habits, never more be scared of rabbits
If I only had the nerve.
I’m afraid there’s no denyin’ I’m just a dandelion,
A fate I don’t deserve.
But I could show my prowess, be a lion not a mowess
If I only had the nerve
Oh I’d be in my stride, a king down to the core
I would roar the way I’ve never roared before
And then I’d rrrwoof! and roar some more
I would show the dinosaurus who’s king around the forres’
A king they better serve
Why with my regal beezer I could be another Caesar
If I only had the nerve
