"Don't Know Why (You Stay)" as written by and Fred E. Ahlert Roy Turk....
Stepping along the hum of the sidewalk
A marionette, a slave
Your legs are wood and tied to the city
Who has final say

It's hard to hug the girders, my brother
It's hard to swing and waltz
With your tempo one beat less than the others
You're three times more at fault

I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
Yeah I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay

If your silver wing is stuck on horizons
Catch it when it goes
Or they'll take a piece and pull back the curtains
And there's nothing left but your clothes

I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
Yeah, I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
No...

The strings are why you move to Geppeto
The daily hourglass
This match made was made in a moment
But now that moment's passed

I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
Yeah, I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
No, I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
Yeah, I don't know why, don't know why, I don't know why you stay
No...

    General CommentI think it's "stepping along the hum of the sidewalk, a marionette a slave." I'm very sure actually. And I also think it's "with your tempo one beat less than the others and three times more at fault".
