JUST BECAUSE. AKA - "Because Just Because." American, Song and Dance Tune (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB. The song was popular throughout North America in the early part of the 20th century and entered a number of traditions.

Just Because you think you're so pretty
Just Because you think you're so hot
Just Because you think you got something
That nobody else has got

Well you caused me to spend all my money
You laughed and called me old Santa Claus...
Well I'm telling you honey I'm through with you
Well Because, now, now, Just Because...
