Why can't a rabbit chase an eagle?
Tell me why, oh why?

Out so good and that's why rabbits don't chase after eagles that's all I
Know about rabbits and eagles?
Because because because.

Why ain't my grandpa my grandma?
Why, oh why, oh why?
Same reason your dad's not your mommy.
Goodbye goodbye goodbye.

Why couldn't the wind blow backwards?
Why, oh why, oh why?

Hurt somebody it'd keep on hurting them
Goodbye goodbye goodbye.
