I'm sitting here reading the book of life
 Constantly asking myself why
Why do babies have to die
And a mother gives up a price 
Can you see the man on the streets 
Doesn't even have enough to eat
And tell me when your walking by 
Can you see the tears in his eye
 Somebody please tell me why

Why
Why does this world seem so cold
Just like a rich man who won't give a pot a gold
Why
 Before my life comes to an end let's try to make amends and
Let's give it a chance 
Tell me why 

Baby don't know her fathers name
Mother's confused just the same
She's saying that it's alright 
But she needs a father in her life
 Somebody please tell me why
Just like the sand on the beach 
Just like the ocean runs so deep
We all must take our part 
And dig deep in our heart 
But I don't know where to start 

 Someone tell me why 
Why, why does this world seem so cold
Just like a rich man who won't give a pot of gold
Oh no, why, why before my life comes to an end 
Let's try to make amends and let's give it a chance 
Oh tell me why 

Why do things go the way they do
 Everybody I'm asking you can we 
Turn around, turn around, turn around  Things don't have to be this way
I'm looking for a better day can we
Turn around, turn around, turn around
