Proper Word Order

It's funny how drastically changing the order of words can effect the meaning of a sentence (not to be  too specific; it can also change clauses, exclamations, you know, whatever).

 I was thinking* of this because the silly song "If I Only had a Brain" from the Wizard of Oz was stuck in my head.  The scarecrow sings that "if [he] only had a brain, [he'd] dance and be a-merry."
*It hurt.

Then I thought, if I had only a brain, I'd like to live in a jar.
