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

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 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 woman
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
