You Ask Why - Because I Said So

Written by: Charles Sides

You ask why? Because I said so! Ever hear that when you were young? Dad answered that way when he’s mad And he did it with a sharp tongue Why do I have to do that now? You ask why? Because I said so! Of what value is that response? If you explain; then they’ll know I became a lot like my folks So when challenged by my daughters You ask why? Because I said so! I know those are stupid orders My kids now have kids of their own And they explains thing as they go I’ve never heard one of them say You ask why? Because I said so!
