​Why Not?

This song is by Gentle Giant and appears on the album Gentle Giant (1970).

Don't sing a tune to yourself
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading won't stretch none

Don't give me none of that line
Why not?
Got to sing something
Love song there's nothing to find
Why not?
Dead before playing

Don't sing a tune to yourself
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading won't stretch none
Who says the things that go in?
It ain't no use saying
Dead thought can kill a good thing
The band is only playing

Don't give me none of that line
Why not?
Got to sing something
Love song there's nothing to find
Why not?
Dead before playing

Why not climb a hill
With someone who hates you?
Why not hate someone
Who climbs a hill with you?
And as time passes by
Your feet are slipping
And you are wondering why
There's no forgetting

Don't sing a tune to yourself
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading don't stretch none
Who says the things that go in?
It ain't no use saying
Dead thought can kill a good thing
The band is only playing

Don't give me none of that line
Why not?
Got to sing something
Love song there's nothing to find
Why not?
Dead before playing
Dead before playing
