I'm trying to find a song I remember from many years ago that had the them of a child asking a parent(most likely a dad) a series of "why is" questions. The version I remember was sung by a woman.

The search parameters are too open. When did you hear it (approximate year)? UK? US? Type of music--just to narrow things down a bit. That kinda thing would be helpful.

As a start I'll proffer Lynn & Liz Anderson - Mother May I ?

Otherwise, yeah, need to know more details.

Hmm. Interesting question. You didn't give us quite enough information to allow us to find the exact song, but it does open the door to lots of interesting songs. The one I thought of was Woody Guthrie's Why, Oh Why.

It might be Little Child, also known as Daddy Dear. It's been recorded by Danny Kaye and others.

I believe there was a thread or two on Mudcat about this song.
