The Rutles: Don't Know Why


I don't know why 
The world turns out to be the way it is 
As time goes by 
Oh I  (I...) 
Don't know why  (don't know why...) 
True love turns out to be the stuff 
Between hello and goodbye 

Looking back with 20-20 hindsight 
We only tried to play our part 
When selfishness is state of the art 
You've just got to change the locks on your heart 

Now I   (I...) 
Don't know why  (don't know why...) 
True love turns out to be the stuff 
Between hello and goodbye 

Looking back with 20-20 hindsight 
We only did the best we could 
As green as any Norwegian Wood 
The acid test of fame we withstood 

Now I   (I...) 
Don't know why (don't know why...) 
The world turns out to be the way it is 
As time goes by 
Oh I  (I...) 
Don't know why  (don't know why...) 
True love turns out to be the stuff 
Between hello and goodbye
