Tell me

by Tom Waits


Why plant a seed deep in the ground
why put a stone on a grave in town
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me why it´s so
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me so I´ll know
why does a wedding ring have the hardest stone
why does a little dog bury its bone
so the river will not drown it
so the highway won´t take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won´t blow it away
why put a song bird in a cage
why write i love you on every page
tell me why it´s so
tell me, tell me, tell me
tell me so I´ll know
why does a bird build its nest so high
why hold a baby when a baby cries
so the river will not drown it
so the highway won´t take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won´t blow it away
so the river will not drown it
so the highway won´t take it
and the dust will not cover it
and the sun will not blind it
and the wind won´t blow it away
