"Tell Me" as written by and B. L. Thomas....
Why plant a seed deep in the ground
why put a stone on a grave in town
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me why it's so
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me so I'll know

why does a wedding ring have the hardest stone
why does a little dog bury it's bone
so the river will not drown it
and the highway won't take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won't blow it away
why put a song bird in a cage
why write I love you on every page

tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me why it's so
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me so I'll know

why does a bird build it's nest so high
why hold the baby when the baby cries
so the river will not drown it
and the highway won't take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won't blow it away
so the river will not drown it
and the highway won't take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won't blow it away
