I Know What I Know

ŠPaul Simon, released on Graceland, 1986

.

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,

.

[Pause]

.

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,

.

[Pause]

.

I know what I know

I know what I know

I know what I know

I know what I know

.
