Why Say Why? 03:52
When I was young... I never wanted things done by the books Thought it was fun and strange 'till someone gave me funny looks I used to cry on forest floors in little hidden nooks 'till this one time I ate this funny fungi whole world shook now I say... Why say why? Why not say why not? Live 'till ya die Don't say why, Say why not! Why say why? Why not say why not? Live yer life Don't say why, Say why not! Let's pull the fringes 'till they fray, let's go to Paris in the rain Bent outta shape to straighten out and hop the fence and have a cow Yeah, let it loose ya get the goose ya shoot my dog and call me Saul and kill the cat inside the box and put a saddle on that frog Why say why? Why not say why not? Live 'till ya die Don't say why, Say why not! Why say why? Why not say why not? Live yer life Don't say why, Say why not! We'll take the knots right out them knickers the hissy out the fit We'll take the belly out the snake right out the wagon out the pit I got the trees to bribe the dogs So check yer ass and scratch yer watch and dill that pickle, pick that bone, fill my cup and take me home Why say why? Why not say why not? Live 'till ya die Don't say why, Say why not! Why say why? Why not say why not? Live yer life Don't say why, Say why not!

about

Dancing on the Dead gives a voice to death, chaos, life in the margins of society, the characters in our heads, and the very thrill of being alive. A ludic, rosy, and menacing medley of songs that encourages exploration into all realms, light and dark.

People Like You is a freewheelin' freak folk traveling circus band that creates rifts in the fabric of space and time. Juxtaposing vaudevillian gypsy folk granola punk mischief and psychedelic alt-rock hobo jazz madness, it's music for the people, by the people, with no specific people in mind. ... more
