When you're just out walking and you pass
Little signs that say, 'Keep off the grass'
Did you ever stop and ask yourself, why?
Pretty playgrounds children used to know
Little squares where lovers love to go disappear
So parking lots can grow, why?
Once you start the questions never cease
What's disturbed when you disturb the peace
Pets and children are prohibited, why?
Ask yourself, why?
And when you think about it
Bullets fly like popcorn on the screen
Recommended, wholesome, nice and clean
Making love's the thing that can't be seen, why?
Let your hair down just an inch or two
Let your skin be red or green or blue
They invent a special name for you, why?
On a clear day, oh say, can you see?
What remains of mountain greenery
Have your glimpse of all the scenery, sky
Beautiful sky, as shiny as a penny
So when you're out walking and you pass
Near a sign that says, 'Keep off the grass'
Put a sign right next to it that says, 'Why?'
