(dwight yoakam)

Oh baby why not
Just take one more chance
And risk all we got
On this luckless romance
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot
And went kinda crazy
Oh baby why not

If love needs a fool
For it to survive
It sure looks to me
Like we both qualify
And a pair of fools
Will always beat one
So let's play the cards
And get this deal done

Oh baby why not
Bet big on the bliss
And laugh in the face
Of what all odds insist
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot
And both lost our minds
Oh baby why not

Oh baby please
You and i
Are exactly what we need
So let's throw away all care
Move out on the edge somewhere
Find a place and just swing there in the breeze

Oh baby why not
Just take one more chance
And risk all we got
On this luckless romance
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot
And threw our lives away
Oh baby why not
And went kinda crazy
Oh baby why not
And both lost our minds
Oh baby why not

Oh baby, oh baby,
Oh baby, oh baby why not

Why not, why not
Why not, why not
Why not, why not
Why not, why not
Why not

Give me three good reasons, and I'll let you up
No, wait a minute, give me five good reasons and I'll let you up
Uh huh, uh huh
No, four don't count, 'cause that's your mother's reason
Hey, don't bite me

Oh baby why not
