"Why, Oh Why?" as written by and Woody Guthrie....
Why can't a dish break a hammer?
Why oh why oh why?
'Cause a hammer's a hard head
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

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?
'Cause an elephant's got a pretty hard skin
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why can't a mouse eat a streetcar?
Why, oh why, oh why?
'Cause a mouse's stomach could never get big enough to hold a streetcar
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why does a horn make music?
Why, oh why, oh why?
Because the horn-blower blows it
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why does a cow drink water?
Tell me why n why?
Because the cow gets thirsty just like you or me or anybody else
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

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

Why don't you answer my questions?
Why, oh why, oh why?
'Cause I don't know the answers
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

What makes the landlord take money?
Why, oh why, oh why?
I don't know that one myself
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why's there no pennies for ice cream
Why, oh why, oh why?
You put all the pennies in the telephone
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why can't a rabbit chase an eagle?
Tell me why, oh why?
'Cause the last rabbit that took out and chased after an eagle didn't come
Out so good and that's why rabbits don't chase after eagles that's all I
Know about rabbits and eagles?
And oh, because because because

Why ain't my grandpa my grandma?
Why, oh why, oh why?
Same reason your dad's not your mommy
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

Why couldn't the wind blow backwards?
Why, oh why, oh why?
'Cause it might backfire and hurt somebody and if it
Hurt somebody it'd keep on hurting them so why
Goodbye goodbye goodbye

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