What Have They Got That I Ain't Got?

Bert Lahr (Cowardly Lion): Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?

: Courage!


  1. The Cowardly Lion was my favorite in The Wizard of Oz. I've been feeling like that little speech for a few weeks, too. How did you know?

  2. I don't know. It crept up on me over the past couple of weeks. Unveilings always do that to me.
