Lyrics

Why? won't you kindly tell me
Why? you always leave me high and dry
And give all the other boys attention, dear?
You know I want you near me, hear me
You'd be so awfully pleasing if you stopped your teasing
If you do
I'll be true
Through and through

Why are you so captivating?
Why are you so aggravating?
And for me must I keep on waiting patiently?
You know there's lots of kissing, we're missing
I'd like to hear you say the words that you once whispered
Oh, why don't you tell me why?

Why are you so captivating?
Why are you so aggravating?
And for me must I keep on waiting patiently?
You know there's lots of kissing, we're missing
You'd be so awfully pleasing if you stopped your teasing
Oh, why don't you tell me why?
