Written by McGuinn/Crosby

Keep sayin' no to her since she was a baby
Keep sayin' no to her, not even maybe
Why?
Why?

You say there's a limit there, she can't go past that
She don't believe you, she don't think that's where it's at
Why?
Why?

Say she can't change that, it's the way you've always done it
She don't care about that, she thinks you've just begun it
Why?
Why?

You say it's a dead old world, cold and unforgiving
I don't know where you live but you're not living
Why?
Why?

Keep sayin' no to her since she was a baby
Keep sayin' no to her, not even maybe
Why?
Why?
