Why I Don't Know

This song is by Lyle Lovett and appears on the album Lyle Lovett (1986).

Was it the champagne, was it the caviar
Was it her airplane, was it her daddy's car
Was it the new thing with all the dough
Why, I don't know, I just had to go

Was that the yacht club or just a fishing boat
Was that a leg of lamb or was it billy goat
Was that a snail, baby, or escargot
Why, I don't know, I just had to go

I'm just a poor boy, I like to have fun
I know a pretty girl when I see one
I've seen the real thing
The imitation, too, baby
So don't go telling me what to do

Was that a beer joint or was that the country club
Were we fooling around or was it truly love
Was that a foreign film or just a show
Why, I don't know, I just had to go

I'm just a poor boy, I like to have fun
I know a pretty girl when I seen one
I've seen the real thing
The imitation, too, baby
So don't go telling me what to do

So keep your champagne and keep your caviar
And fly your airplane to your daddy's car
And so you'll understand, I'll tell you slow
Why, I don't know, I just had to go

Why, I don't know
Why, I don't know
I just had to go
Why, I don't know
Why, I don't know
Why, I don't know
