Who is interested in asking why
And due to my why, I may
Become a famous guy.
With some surprising ambition
To become a scientist.
I want to know why wood should float
And why lead and marble sink
Why does the wind blow
And why do we all eat and drink?
I want to know what makes clouds
And why they snake across the sky
Why does the Sun set behind the hill
And why do all flowers die?
I want to know why fish have gills.
And why the Earth has hills?
Why can boys not fly?
And why does rain fall from the sky?
I want to know why charcoal gives smoke.
And it's not the same for stones.
Some of my why's are not hard to answer.
If you will try, but no one ever yet
Has found the reason for my ambition-
