Why does a cow say moo, Daddy?
How many leaves has a tree?
Why am I smaller than you, Daddy?
How does food turn into me?
Why is an elephant big, Daddy?
And why is an ant so small?
Why can't a cat be a pig, Daddy?
Can't you answer my questions at all?
How do puddles see their reflection, Daddy?
Have unicorns ever been?
And, not that there's any connection, Daddy,
Why is a tangerine?
I've puzzled as hard as I can, Daddy,
But why can't I go to the moon?
Will I know it all when I'm a man, Daddy?
Will I be grown up soon?
I know that the sky can be red, Daddy,
So why can't the sun be green?
And the thoughts that go round in my head, Daddy,
How do I know what they mean?
Where does yesterday go, Daddy?
I don't mean to ask out of turn,
But with so many things I don't know, Daddy,
How else can a little boy learn?
