I Know Why The Willow Weeps (Fairground Attraction)

Back in the days of the dinosaur The willow stood proud like the sycamore The apes got smart and learned how to talk And eat with a knife and a spoon and a fork They moved into houses that turned into towns And invented devices to blow them all down That's why the willow weeps That's why the willow weeps If you've ever wondered the reason why The willow hangs it's head to cry Now you know why the willow weeps Now the corn don't grow where the rain don't fall Then you hear those hungry children bawl But apes don't hear, they're playing games Climbing mountains built out of grain And the newspapers don't even number the dead They're counting the Hollywood stars instead That's why the willow weeps That's why the willow weeps If you've ever wondered the reason why The willow hangs it's head to cry Now you know why the willow weeps If you've ever wondered the reason why The willow hangs it's head to cry Now you know why the willow weeps Now you know why the willow weeps
