Tell Me Lyrics

Why plant a seed deep in the ground?
Why, why, why, why, why put a stone on a grave in town?
Why, why, why, why
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, why, why, why, why does a little dog bury it's bone?
Why, why, why, why
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, why, why, why, why write, “I love you” on every page?
Why, why, why, why
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, why, why, why, why hold the baby when the baby cries?
Why, why, why, why
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
