​Why

This song is by Leon Redbone and appears on the album From Branch to Branch (1981).

Why? won't you kindly tell me
Why? you always leave me high and dry
And give all the other boys attention, dear?
You know I want you near me, hear me,
You'd be so awfully pleasing if you stopped your teasing.
If you do
I'll be true
Through and through.

Why are you so captivating?
Why are you so aggravating?
And for me must I keep on waiting patiently?
You know there's lots of kissing, we're missing.
I'd like to hear you say the words that you once whispered.
Oh, why don't you tell me why?
