Tell me why, though I try to forget,
Tell me why, why I think of you yet.
I know I'll never be free -
What has happened to me?
Tell me why, when we danced until three,
Tell me why, why my heart couldn't see.
I never dreamed of romance,
Never gave it a chance.
When I think of how you looked that day,
In your gown of silk and lace;
Should have known the day you came my way
That this is the time and the place.
Tell me why I keep fooling my heart
When I know it was love from the start.
Why don't we give it a try?
If you know, tell me why.
If you know, tell me why, tell me, tell me why.
