I Wanna Know Why
( Tyler / Perry )



Aaaaah....

Kickin' down the road
Feelin' mighty slowed
With the likes of you

Gettin' mighty spaced
Never had a taste
Of what you're goin' through

I can't bitch
Went from rags to riches
Then to ragtime screamin' the blues

I wanna know why
Everybody good intentions
Tryin' to make a fool outta me

I wanna know why
Everybody's good intentions
Gotta make a fool
Gotta make a fool
Tryin' to make a fool outta me

Swing low
Sweet cherry O
With a strange love showed me the way

Ya see more
Can't keep a score
When the whore's comin' on for the play

I wanna know why
Everybody's good intentions
Gotta make a fool outta me

I wanna know why
Everybody's good intentions
Gotta make a fool
Gotta make a fool
Tryin' to make a fool outta me

E. Poe
Eatin' crow
Wonder if he knowed that the raven was mad

Time passed
And words lost the last
Of the best thing he ever had

I wanna know why
Everybody's good intentions
Gotta make a fool outta me

I wanna know why
Everybody's good intentions
Gotta make a fool
Gotta make a fool
Tryin' to make a fool outta me

Oh... play rough
And can't get enough
So they tryin' to make a fool outta me... lordy

Ain't foolin' me
Ya ain't ghoulin' me
Ain't foolin' me
Ya ain't ghoulin' me




I Wanna Know Why song
