Why’d You Do It?
Words & music by The Whale,
© 2012 Fiat Lux! ASCAP



Oh, why’d you do it?

Oh, why’d you do it?

Why’d you kill all the fish in the sea?

Don’t you know that God wants those fish to be free!

Free the fish!

So why’d you do it?


Oh, why’d you do it?

Oh, why’d you do it?

Why’d you kill all the birds in the trees?

Don’t you know that God wants those trees to be free!

Free the trees!

So why’d you do it?





Why’d you kill and rape

and mutilate my world?





So why'd you do it?




Oh, why’d you do it?

Oh, why’d you do it?

Why’d you kill all those kids in the street?

Don’t you know that God wants those kids to be free!

So why’d you do it?



Oh as I look out through the window of my soul

I see the destiny of this world looming black as coal

I see dead fish floating belly up in the mourning tide

Oh Lord, it seems as from the waste of man

there aint no place to hide
