Actually, it's the Tin Man that refers to Romeo - "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!"

Richard A. Burt wrote: "The scarecrow also refers to Romeo in his 'If I
only had a brain' song in The Wizard of Oz."

As a recovering Tin Woodman, I feel the call to correct this tiny
mistake.  It is, in fact, the Tin Man (as he's come to be called) who
sings: "Picture me, a balcony, above a voice sings low... 'Wherefore art
thou, Romeo?'... I hear a beat! How sweet."

No harm, no foul.

Would someone please pass me a quart of oil? ;o)
