From the recording We All Laugh in the Same Language
©2004 by Marla Lewis
Since I learned to walk, and I learned to talk
I’ve been wondering why, why, why, can you tell me why?
Why the sky is blue, how we get the flu!
Why tickling makes us laugh and onions make us cry.
Why are chocolate pies, onion rings and fries
More delicious than cauliflower, beans and broccoli?
Why does summertime seem to fly on by?
While it school it’s like every day’s an eternity!
Seems everywhere I turn, I see questions there
Floating up in the air around me, flitting like butterflies!
And every time I grab one and catch his eye
In his answer I always find there’s another WHY!
Why do bullies tease everyone they please?
Why do other kids cheer them on and join in making fun?
If you win a fight, does it prove you’re right?
Why is it so hard sometimes just to love someone?
Someday I hope, when I grow up, I’ll know
The answers to all those questions dancing around my brain!
I guess till then, I’ll be wondering why and when
And when they see me my friends will sigh, “there she goes again!”
(Spoken over fade)
Why are planets round? Why do things fall down?
Why can’t they fall up instead? Can you tell me please?
Why do roosters crow? How do glowworms glow?
Why do our noses run? And why do people sneeze?
