"Ask Me Why" as written by and John Lennon Paul Mccartney....
I love you, 'cause you tell me things I want to know.
And it's true that it really only goes to show,
That I know,
That I, I, I, I should never, never, never be blue.

Now you're mine, my happiness still makes me cry.
And in time, you'll understand the reason why,
If I cry,
It's not because I'm sad, but you're the only love that I've ever had.

I can't believe it's happened to me
I can't conceive of any more misery.

Ask me why, I'll say I love you,
And I'm always thinking of you.

I love you, 'cause you tell me things I want to know.
And it's true that it really only goes to show,
That I know,

That I, I, I, I should never, never, never be blue.

Ask me why, I'll say I love you,
And I'm always thinking of you.

I can't believe it's happened to me.
I can't conceive of any more misery.

Ask me why, I'll say I love you,
And I'm always thinking of you.

    General CommentWritten in the Spring of 62, with John as the major contributor, Ask Me Why was from the Beatles Cavern set that year. George Martin didn't believe it strong enough to be their first single. On the re-record in Feb 63, it became the B side of Please Please Me.

    General CommentCan't believe there's only three comments here. This song is so underrated in my opinion. It's so sweet. It's almost like a confession that we're not meant to hear.
