"Because the Origami" as written by and Benjamin Scott/palmer Folds....
Because the Origami didn’t work
We gave you dancing lessons
Because the dancing lessons made you bored
We bought you a guitar

Because you said
It made your fingers sore
We found you a pony
Because the pony broke your leg and ran away
We got you drums

But the drums annoyed our neighbors so
We gave you cooking lessons
And the cooking lessons made you fat
We bought you running shoes

If you hear this
Please
We love you Tommy
We know it was never about Origami

Because you took the shoes and ran away
We gave them your description
Now we haven’t heard a thing in weeks

Because we don’t know where you are
We’re putting out this song
Because we think that you might hear
And know where you belong

So what did we do wrong?

If you hear this
Please
We love you Tommy
We know it was never about Origami

And if you ever hear this song
Know we send our love
Take your origami skills
And make a paper dove

Send a message home
We promise not to teach you
We don’t care what you’ve done
We hope that this will reach you

If you hear this
Please
We love you Tommy
We won’t ask you
Anything
We won’t be angry
