Barbra Streisand – Ask Yourself Why lyrics

When you're just out walking and you pass
Little signs that say "keep off the grass"
Did you ever stop and ask yourself why?
Pretty playgrounds children used to know
Little squares where lovers love to go
Disappear so parking lots can grow
Why?
Once you start the questions never cease
What's disturbed when you disturb the peace
Pets and children are prohibited
Why? Ask yourself why?
And when you think about it
Bullets fly like popcorn on the screen
Recommended wholesome nice and clean
Making love's the thing that can't be seen
Why?
Let your hair down just an inch or two
Let your skin be red or green or blue
They invent a special name for you
Why?
On a clear day oh say can you see
What remains of mountain's scenery
Catch a glimpse of all the scenery... Sky......
Beautiful sky.. As shiny as a penny
So when you're out walking and you pass
Near a sign that say "keep off the grass"
Put a sign right next to it that says "why?"
