I got ideas but I don't know it all 
And when I speak you know my voice is small 
And when I'm walking down the street 
I never smile at folks I meet 
'Cause I know they won't smile at me
Now ask yourself why this should be 
But if you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me 
If you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me
I got feelings but they don't count for much 
And I shake my fist but I got no power as such 
But if I tell you what I see 
Don't throw my words right back at me 
'Cause I can't shout and I can't moan 
'Cause I got problems of my own 
But if you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me 
If you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me
Someday soon I gotta learn enough 
To justify my actions 
Until then I want you all to try 
To share my gut reactions 
Gut reactions
But if you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me 
If you want the answers 
If you want the answers 
Don't ask me
