Don't Ask Me Why

Words and Music by Billy Joel


All the waiters in your grand cafe
Leave their tables when you blink
Every dog must have his everyday
Every drunk must have his drink
Don't wait for answers, just take your chances
Don't ask me why

All your life you've had to stand in line
Still you're standing on your feet
All your choices make you change your mind
Now your calendar's complete
Don't wait for answers, just take your chances
Don't ask me why

You can say the human heart is only make-believe
And I am only fighting fire with fire
You are still the victim of the accidents you leave
Sure as I'm a victim of desire

All the servants in your new hotel
Throw their roses at your feet
Fool them all but baby I can tell
You're no stranger to the street
Don't ask for favors, don't talk to strangers
Don't ask me why





               Performed by Billy Joel

Yesterday you were an only child
Now your ghosts have gone away
Oh, you can kill them in the classic style
Now you parlez-vous fran├žais
Don't look for answers, you took your chances
Don't ask me why
