About I Don’t Know Why
This lovely song relates the lover who can’t begin to explain why he loves her, but love her he does indeed. The song was introduced by Russ Columbo and was made popular by the Wayne King Orchestra.


All day long you’re asking me what I see in you
All day long I’m answering, but what good does it do?
I have nothing to explain
I just love you, love you
And I’ll tell you once again
I don’t know why I love you like I do
I don’t know why, I just do
I don’t know why you thrill me like you do
I don’t know why, you just do
You never seem to want my romancing
The only time you hold me is when we’re dancing
I don’t know why I love you like I do
I don’t know why, I just do
