Don't Ask Me Why" is a 1989 song recorded by the British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by bandmembers Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart with Jimmy Iovine. The song was featured on Eurythmics' album We Too Are One. The song was released as the second single from the album in the UK and the first in the United States. It is a lush pop song with melancholy and bitter lyrics which describe the ending of a love relationship

All the servants in your new hotel Throw their roses at your feet Fool them all but baby I can tell You're no stranger to the street Don't ask for favors Don't talk to strangers Don't ask me why. Yesterday you were an only child Now your ghosts have gone away You can kill them in the classic style Now you "parlez-vous francais" Don't look for answers You took your chances Don't ask me why Don't ask me why. Submit Corrections. Thanks to Melissa Ryan for correcting these lyrics. Writer(s): BILLY JOEL. B. Billy Joel Lyrics.

Joel released his seventh studio album, Glass Houses, in an attempt to further establish himself as a rock and roll artist; this release featured "It's Still Rock & Roll to Me", Joel's first single to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as "Don't Ask Me Why" and "Sometimes a Fantasy". His next album, The Nylon Curtain, was released in 1982, and stemmed from a desire from Joel to create more lyrically and melodically ambitious music

Don't wait for answers Just take your chances Don't ask me why. Mmm, you can say the human heart is only make believe I am only fighting fire with fire You are still the victim of the accidents you leave Sure as I'm a victim of desire. All the servants in your new hotel Throw their roses at your feet, oh Fool them all but baby I can tell You're no stranger to the street

Don't Ask Me Why" is a Billy Joel song released in 1980. The lyrics talk about the oddities of life that have become obvious over time. It is more characteristic of a track that would have appeared on Joel's earlier albums in that it has a lighter folk sound as compared to the harder, more rock oriented tracks found throughout the album. The background track contains all acoustic and Latin percussion instruments performing in an Afro-Cuban rhythmic style.
