Pat the Cowardly Lion on the head.

He’ll feel more courageous,

And so will you.

Tap a tune on the Tin Man.

He’ll be happy,

And so will you.

When you and the Scarecrow are together,

help him feel good,

about the brain he has.

He’ll appreciate it,

And so will you.

When you walk

down the Yellow Brick Road

with Dorothy

remember to hold hands.

She’ll love it

And so will you.
