Tell Me Why

Tell Me Why

M.I.A.

You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't

Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same

I've been coming up for a while on ya radar
I know I made it jus' by counting up my haters
I got a speed boat get away like later
You betta have a lotta cheddar if you don't got data
Coz you can live it up, pull it up, start reeling
Start throwing hands up like you're mad at the ceiling
You could make a killin' but don't forget the feeling
People stealin' money and down with double-dealin'

You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't gimmie no mo'
You won't

Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same

You can take me courthouse
You can take me jail
You can take me anywhere
But you can't get me there
You can ask me where I'm going and I'll tell you crazy
But when I get to where I'm going you should come with me

You've be staying up, pull me up start reeling
I'm throwing up my hands like I'm mad at the ceiling

Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same

I got roof on my head
I got food in my pot
And the old ways are dead with the new ones we got
There's water in my pot
And I'm half and half not
And the old kind is broke with the new kind we bought
I drink alcohol
Know the words to Wonderwall
I rewrite the code
While I do my time on road

Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
Tell me why
Things change but it feels the same
If life is such a game
How come people all act the same
