Cowardly Lion

The Lion describes to the group how he would act if he were "King of the Forest""

"If I Were King of the Forest."

If I were King of the Forest,
not queen, not duke, not prince.
Each rabbit would show respect to me
The chipmunks genuflect to me.

Pretending that his three companions are his adoring subjects, they wrap the royal-looking beast's shoulders in a rug and crown his new permanent on his head with a jagged, broken flower pot. Then they ask him questions about his courage:

Dorothy: If you were king, you wouldn't be afraid of anything?
Lion: Not nobody, not no how.

Tin Woodsman: Not even a rhinoceros?
Lion: Imp-oceros.

Dorothy: How about a hippopotamus?
Lion: Why I'd thrash him from top to bottom-us.

Dorothy: Supposin' you met an elephant.
Lion: I'd knot him up in cellophant.

Scarecrow: What if it were a brontosaurus?
Lion: I'd show him who's King of the Forest.

Group: How?
Lion: How? 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 ape-ricot? What have they got that I ain't got?

Group: Courage.

Lion: You can say that again. Huh?

The Lion SOUNDS good, but his real tests are still to come...
