|Tell Me Why
I keep hearing the song that we heard on TV
Last night as we lay in our bed:
That lovely old song with the name "Tell Me Why"
Turns meaningful love on its head.
Imagine, my Love, that I sang you this song
Intending my love to construe.
Iíd say that the reason I love you, Sweetheart,
Is that God the creator made you.
Would you be delighted to hear words like these?
I really donít think thereís a chance.
For God the creator made not only you,
But spiders and crickets and ants.
The words make more sense with one three-letter change
Though at first they may strike you as odd.
Just give them a moment, let them sink in:
God made you, thatís why I love God.
