Don't ask me why, don't ask me why
I'll join the army, the Salvation Army but it didn't help
Don't ask me why, don't ask me why
I joined the army, but it drove me barmy and it didn't help
 Hideous towns make me throw up 

Don't ask me why, don't ask me why
I went into service with the Civil Service but it didn't help
Don't ask me why, don't ask me why
I went into service but it made me nervous and it didn't help
Ooh, hideous towns made me throw up 

And sticks and stones may break my bones 
But words will just finish me off, yeah near enough 

Oh oh, my hopeless youth it's so uncouth 
And oh, I'd like to be in history 
I said oh in my hopeless youth just so uncouth 
So there you go and now you know
But just please don't 

Don't ask me why, don't ask me why
I went to the circus, Piccadilly Circus, it was very strange 
Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know why
 Never one to roam, I took the first bus home, and I haven't changed 
Ooh, hideous towns made me throw up 

And I know sticks and stones may break my bones 
But words will just finish me off, yeah near enough 
Yes they do 

Said oh, my hopeless youth it's so uncouth 
Said oh, and I'd like to be in history 
Said oh in my, hopeless youth it's just so uncouth 
So there you go, and now you know
But just please don't.... please, please, please 
Said oh, yeah my hopeless youth just so, damn, oh oh
Yeah my hopeless youth is really very young 
Just really very young
