Who, who ooh ooh ooh oo
What, woo ooh ooh ooh oo
Where, woo ooh ooh ooh oo
Why, tell me why, tell me why? Tell me why?

I don't understand, let's sit down and talk
One minute you love me and then you walk
There's more going on than you will admit
'Cause just as we got it to work you quit

I'm caught in a fog and you make it clear
The truth won't be worse than the things I fear
It's a mystery to me I haven't a clue
If somebody else has a part of you

Tell me who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me

Who?
(Who?)
what when where why
(Why?)
When did it die?
(What?)
When'd we go wrong don't you lie ? Tell me why
(What?)

You won't be my love, you won't be my friend
But won't you at least help me comprehend
What's happening to me 'cause after you go
My one consolation will be to know

The places and names, the reason and rhymes
The facts of the matter and points in time
I tried for your love but you won't allow
This guy to do nothin' but ask you how

And who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me

Who
(Who)
what when where why
(Why)
When did it die
(What)
When'd we go wrong don't you lie? Tell me why
(What)

I want you to say what's inside your head
Confession is good for the soul, it's said
So start at the top and take it real slow
If you want out, then I have to know

Just who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
When did it die?
(What?)
When'd we go wrong don't you lie? Tell me
(What?)

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
When did it die?
(What?)
When'd we go wrong don't you lie ? Tell me
(What?)

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
When did it die?
(What?)
When'd we go wrong don't you lie? Tell me
(What?)

Who?
(Who?)
What, when, where, why?
(Why?)
Who is the guy?
(What?)
What made you need someone new? Tell me
