If I Only Had a Heart

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 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.
