Track Name: Sean Morse - Don't Put Yourself Down
Don't Put Yourself Down by Sean Morse
inspired by L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Scarecrow, You may not think that you think a lot
call yourself a dummy and maybe they'll believe you
but every time we needed a plan to save our hides
you are always the one that we turn to

don't put yourself down
you may look like a clown
but your funny and your smart
and we're glad you're around

don't put yourself down
we'll help you up off the ground
'cause you're funny and smart
and we're glad that you're around

and Tin man
you clearly think you've got no heart
but you care for all the birds and the insects
always making sure that we're all cared for
but when did you rust away all your self respect?

Don't put yourself down you
may look like a man shaped disco ball
but you're caring and nice
and we're glad that you're around

don't put yourself down
we'll pick you up off the ground
but your really heavy
so don't make us pick you up off the ground

and lion, lovely lion,
I know you're tryin'
to make me think you're just not that brave
but time after time
you put yourself on the line
every time we need saving

and Toto, faithful Toto
I don't know what you think you're not good at
But whatever it is, just forget it
you're a meat dog the size of a cat
and if anyone messes with you they're just asking to get hit

so don't put yourself down
you may look like the end of a dirty mop
but your faithful and true
and we're glad that you're around

don't put yourself down
i'll pick you up off the ground
cause super portable
and we're glad that you're around
