   Tell Me Why
by John T. Marck



Tell Me Why

Considered "delicious hackwork," this song by Lennon was written to include one in the film that was very upbeat. In this Lennon describes that he had been deserted and lied to. He asks the girl to let him know what he had done wrong, so that he can correct it and put things right. His further inspiration was that when parents of children either leave or suddenly die, the children are left with feelings that they somehow did something wrong to cause these events. It is I believe one of the best on the album, and one of my favorites.

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Well I gave you everything I had,

But you left me sitting on my own

Did you have to treat me oh so bad,

All I do is hang my head and moan

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

If there's something I'd said or done,

Tell me what and I'll apologize

If you don't I really can't go on,

Holding back these tears in my eyes

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Well I beg you on my bended knees,

If you'll only listen to my pleas

Is there anything I can do, 'cause I really can't stand it,

I'm so in love with you

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
