Billy Joel - Don’t ask me why
Tekst en muziek: Billy Joel
(1980)






All the waiters in your grand cafe
Leave their tables when you blink, ohoh ohohohoh
Every dog must have his everyday
Every drunk must have his drink
Don’t wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don’t ask me why



All your life you had to stand in line
Still you’re standing on your feet, ohoh ohohohoh
All your choices make you change your mind
Now your calendar’s complete
Don’t wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don’t ask me why



Mmm, you can say that human heart is only make-believe
And I am only fighting fire with fire
You are still the victim of the accidents you leave
Sure as I’m a victim of desire
Yeah, yeah, yeah



All the servants in your new hotel
Throw their roses at your feet, ohoh ohohohoh
Fool them all, but baby, I can tell
You’re no stranger to the street
Don’t ask for favors
Don’t talk to strangers
Don’t ask me why



Yesterday you were an only child
Now your ghosts have gone away, ohoh ohohohoh
You can kill them in the classic style
Now you parlez-vous Français
Don’t look for answers
You took your chances
Don’t ask me why



Don’t ask me why
