Don't Ask Me Why

< Choral and Instrumental opening >
 
Donít ask me why I love you
How can I answer . . . what can I say?
I was just born to love you . . .
Come what may!
 
Do you ask the flower why it grows,
When kissed by the sun and the rain?
Do you ask the stream why it flows,
Through the green embrace of the plain?
 
Donít ask me why I love you
How can I tell you . . . donít ask me why!
I was just born to love you . . .
ĎTill I die!
 
Do you ask a lark, when it sings in the dark,
How it knows the day will dawn?
Do you ask a star when it shines from afar,
How it knows the storm is gone?
 
Do you ask your heart, when itís close to my heart,
How it knows our love cannot die?
When you know, you know why I love you . . .
ĎTill then, donít ask me why!
 
< Instrumental bridge >
 
Do you ask your heart, when itís close to my heart,
How it knows our love cannot die?
When you know, youíll know why I love you . . .
ĎTill then . . . donít ask me why!
