The Lyrics

Little kids asking questions all the time...Original Song
My nephew is seven
And he is now talking all the time
When we go on car rides
Or go to the park
Things blow his mind!

“What is that, Uncle Abbott?
How is it that birds can fly?
Why must I wear my jacket?
Why do carrots help my eyes?”
Please don’t ask why
Don’t ask why

“Why are there toes on my feet?
And why is the sky a bright blue?
How does that Tooth Fairy know
When there’s a freshly missing tooth?”

So I try to lie about it
Say “No one really knows why”
But that punk sees right through it
He knows that it’s just a lie...
Just...don’t ask why!
Don’t ask why

“Where’d my dog go?
Where’d he go to?”
“Oh he must have ran away…”
But I know that his dad took him
To his last vet yesterday...

“Hey Uncle Abbott,
when you were born
how did you get here?
Tell me where babies come from!

Abbott, why can’t the President
work with Congress, side by side?
Why can’t they just stop fighting
and work on fixing our lives?”
I don’t...know why...
Don’t know why
Don’t ask why

Don't stop children from leaning Abbott! Children are very stupid but it's your job to teach them and make them intelligent so they don't have to ask so many dumb questions. Well done here.

Parody adequately matches the whiny tone of the OS. Don't ask me why.

(Artristry) I'm just thinking of Robin Williams now "What are you, Carl Sagan?! Go ask mommy, she knows everything!" Ahem. Short but bittersweet, 555.
