When I was a girl, my favorite thing 
In the whole wide world 
Was to see a field and 
Run for no reason 
And off I'd go, no one behind 
Only earth below 
Just a patch of green, green as the season 
Don't ask why, your feet just fly 
Green and sky is all that you're needin'

Why ask why, when all that's true 
The sky is blue, blue for no reason 
Now that things have changed 
Everything's carefully prearranged 
Not a thing gets done 
Except for a reason 
Now I'm overrun, I'm startin' to feel 
Like a hired gun 
Where's the chance, where's the fun 
Where is the pleasin'? 

Try and try, you moan and sigh 
You just can't find a thing to believe in 
Why ask why, when all that's true
The sky is blue, blue for no reason 
Don't ask why, your feet just fly 
Green and sky is all that you're needin'
Why ask why, when all that's true 
You're just blue, blue for no reason
