Black and white feel good family movie possibly 1930s or 40s

This movie was typical of its time a lovely feel good family film.

I unfortunately don't remember much but there were 2 sister's. One young around 10 with long bouncing ringlets and an older late teenager.

I grieve there was singing around a there drawing room and my sister and I have 2 quotes that we love.

One was the younger sister was asking why all the time and the older just kept saying because. I believe this was in a song." Why? Because! Why? Because!" Tec

The second quote from the sisters was

Sister1 "I like you!"

Sidter2 "I like you too!"

I know it's not much to go on. Sorry

I'm pretty sure this is a Shirley Temple movie called "Curly Top."  made in 1935, about two sisters, Mary the oldest and Elizabeth the youngest (played by Shirley Temple.)  They are orphans living at an orphanage.  Wealthy Edward Morgan becomes charmed with a curly-haired orphan and her pretty older sister Mary and arranges to adopt both under the alias of "Mr. Jones." As he spends more time with them, he soon finds himself falling in love with Mary.  If this isn't the Shirley Temple movie you're looking for, on IMDB under Shirley Temple, look through her movies, they're ALL feel good movies. If  "Curly Top" is the movie you're looking for, please click on the "Best Answer" option. Thank you and happy movie watching!
Sorry it's not that one. Just watched it though. Lovely film.
Any more ideas?
All of Shirley Temple's movies are feel good movies, so I think the movie you're looking for is not a Shirley Temple movie or it could be, she made a ton of movies during the 1930s. Shirley primarily did dancing and singing movies, is the one your looking for a musical or just a family movie? I'm still looking for you!
Sorry for not getting back sooner. It was a musical. It's such a shame I can't remember the storyline. Wonder if it was a young Judy garland???. Defo a shirley temple/garland kind of girl. Lol.
I'm so vague sorry
I'm think the WHY BECAUSE quote was a song.
I hope I found it this time. Title of movie: "Everybody Sing"  made in 1938 with Judy Garland. It's a musical that includes a song called: "SNOOKS (WHY? BECAUSE.")   Judy Bellaire, played by Judy Garland, is the center of trouble at her exclusive private and very conservative school. She is expelled when she starts singing in a Jazzy style in her music class. Mayhem ensues as she returns home to her actress mother, playwright father, dysfunctional Russian maid (Fanny Brice) and tries out as a black face singer in a musical.
