Baby Why Not
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


Oh baby why not
Just take one more chance
And risk all we got
On this luckless romance
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot

And went kinda crazy
Oh baby why not
If love needs a fool
For it to survive
It sure looks to me
Like we both qualify
And a pair of fools
Will always beat one
So let's play the cards
And get this deal done

Oh baby why not
Bet big on the bliss
And laugh in the face
Of what all odds insist
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot
And both lost our minds
Oh baby why not

Oh baby please
You and I
Are exactly what we need
So let's throw away all care
Move out on the edge somewhere
Find a place and just swing
there in the breeze

Oh baby why not
Just take once more chance
And risk all we got
On this luckless romance
If someone asks why
We'll say we forgot
And threw our lives away
Oh baby why not
And went kinda crazy
Oh baby why not
And both lost our minds
Oh baby why not

Ok so let’s start a campaign to make it illegal for anyone to use an alias to make comments on YouTube. And this would particularly apply to posters padding out the comment section on their own posts and moderators adding comments to posts at any time
The problem of on-line abuse in social media will disappear overnight if trolls etc are easily identified and traceable

Nobody captures true "trashism" in music like Dwight. Politics aide, he still inspires my writing. Santa can't Stay- And the Trashism Anthem- Intentional Heartache!
