(Woody Guthrie)

Why oh why oh why oh why?
Why oh why oh why?
Because, because, because, because
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Why can't a bird eat an elephant?
Why oh why oh why?
Because an elephant's got a pretty hard skin,
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Why can't a mouse eat a street car?/ Why...
Because a mouse's stomach ain't big enough to hold no street car.
/ Goodbye...

Why does a horn make music?/ Why...
Because the horn-blower blows it./ Goodbye...
Why does a cow drink water?/ Why...
Because a (spoken fast) cow gets thirsty just like you or me or
anybody else./ Goodbye...

Why don't you fly up to the moon?/ Why...
(very fast) Because then I'll never be able to get back down,
back home again, and see everybody again. Might not get back
home then, never again! (aaaaaaah...!) / Goodbye...

Why don't you answer my questions?/ Why...
Because I don't have the answer./ Goodbye...
