lyrics

Why in the world
In the World of Why
Should we wine and dine
With the rhapsodies of sex
The Almighty Sex
Man and woman
Or man and man
Or woman and woman

If you may
Then you might
Why not write the story
Of a boy and a girl
Or a boy and a boy
Or a girl and a girl
Holding hands forever
Holding hands forever
Holding hands forever

If you won’t
Then I will
But why should we cry
Over histories of sex
X-Y-Sex
X-Y-Sex
X-Y-SEX

When the woes of the real
Are writing out our whens
While the whys
Oh the whys
Wretchedly unwind
All the virtues of our sins
Just like bleeding violins

So what comes next?
After sex?
What comes next?
After “(wh)y”?
What comes next?
z-z-z
z-z-Z
z-Z-Z
Z-Z-Z

So why in the world
In the World of Why
Do we wine and dine
For the rhapsodies of sex
X-Y-Sex
X-Y-Sex
X-Y-Sex

If you may
Then you might
Why not write the story
Of a boy and a girl
Or a boy and a boy
Or a girl and a girl
Madly in love forever
Madly in love forever
Madly in love forever

If you won’t then I will
But why should we try
To make sense of a lie
When the woes of the real
Are riddled by its widows
Weaving pillows
with their woes
Reading pillows
as their prose
While the whys
Oh the whys
Wickedly unwind
All the virtues of our sins
Amidst reeking violins

So what comes next?
After sex?
What comes next?
After “(wh)y”?
z-z-Z
z-Z-Z
Z-Z-Z
