Why Oh Why (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... DS
