Why do you suppose 
that robins have red breasts and cats meow?
Why do you suppose 
that apples have blossoms
upon the bought?
Why do birds sing melodies?
And why goats wear long goatees?
It must be that they aim to please 
with realy, hot nanny-goat appleal.
Don't you understand that flowers have perfume
to draw the bee?
Why do you suppose
that you're so attractive to me.
