That's Why God Made the Movies

ŠPaul Simon, released on One Trick Pony, 1980

.

When I was born my mother died

She said bye-bye baby, bye-bye

I said "Where you goin'?"

"I'm just born"

She said I'll only be gone for a while

My mother loved to leave in style

And that's why God made the movies

.

So I laid around in my swaddling clothes

Until the doctor came and turned out the light

Then I packed my bag

And my nametag

And stole away into the night

Hoping things would work out alright

That's why God made the movies

.

Say you will, say you will

Say you'll take me to your loving breast

Say you'll nourish me with your tenderness

The way the ladies sometimes do

Say you won't, say you won't

Say you won't leave me for no other man

Say you'll love me for the way I am

Say you will, say you will

.

When I was born my mother died

She said bye-bye baby, bye-bye

And since that day

I've made my way

The notorious boy of the wild

Adopted by wolves when he was a child

That's why God. That's why God.

That's why God made the movies
