Thread Name: Needed: question songs
Subject: Lyr Add: DAY IS DONE (Peter Yarrow)
I thought about "Where do you go to my lovely?" but decided it really wasn't a question song in the usual sense (several questions, one after the other) I have to confess that I didn't know of the song before seeing Wes Anderson's new film, "The Darjeeling Limited" (great movie, by the way).
How about "Day Is Done"?

Tell me why you're crying my son
Are you frightened like everyone?
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?
Will it help if I stay very near?
I am here...

CHORUS:

And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done (2x)


Do you ask why I'm sighing my son?
You shall inherit what mankind has done
In a world filled with sorrow and woe
If you ask me why this is so
I really don't know


Tell me why you're smiling my son
Is there a secret you can tell everyone?
Do you know more than men that are wise?
Do you see what we all must disguise
In your loving eyes?
