I Know What I Know
Paul Simon Lyrics


She looked me over
And I guess she thought I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way for an off-night
She said, "don't I know you from the cinematographer's party?"
I said, "who am I to blow against the wind?"

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She said, "there's something about you
That really reminds me of money"
She is the kind of a girl
Who could say things that weren't that funny
I said, "what does that mean?
I really remind you of money?"
She said, "who am I to blow against the wind?"

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She moved so easily
All I could think of was sunlight
I said, "aren't you the women
Who was recently given a Fulbright?"
She said, "don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party?"
I said, "who am I to blow against the wind?"

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

I know what I know
I know what I know
I know what I know
I know what I know

Lyrics
She looked me over
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
For an off-night
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
She said there's something about you
That really reminds me of money
She is the kind of a girl
Who could say things that
Weren't that funny
I said what does that mean
I really remind you of money
She said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
She moved so easily
All I could think of was sunlight
I said aren't you the women
Who was recently given a Fulbright
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

I wouldn't be able to debate it lol

Andres Karel

could be? it definitely is

Colin Haynes

Typically, I fall more into more of the metal/hard rock persuasion. However, this easily falls into my top 5 favorite albums of all time.
