"If I Only Had a Brain" (also "If I Only Had a Heart" and "If I Only Had the Nerve") is a song by Harold Arlen (music) and E.Y. Harburg (lyrics). The song is sung in the 1939 film 'The Wizard of Oz' by the characters that meet Dorothy. The characters pine about what each wants from the Wizard.
Originally written by Arlen and Harburg as "I'm Hanging On to You" for the 1937 Broadway musical 'Hooray for What!', the song was ultimately dropped from that show, and when the pair was later hired to do the songs for 'Oz', Harburg simply wrote new lyrics to the tune.
