I know what I know

Maybe I was young and didn't understand
Or maybe I just didn't give a damn
Either way there was a lesson to be learned
I held the fire til it burned
I used to think I was so clever
Now I see that I was just like you

Before I discovered, what I know
Could save you some trouble
Cos I know, what I know, the hard way
Yeah, yeah, yeah-ie...

Listen up and you will know what not to do
Oh... carry on until we carry you
Either way it's taught the lesson will be learned
Why wait until the tables turned

Like you I thought I was so clever
Now I see, that I was just a fool

Until I discovered what I know
Could save you some trouble
What I know, I learned the hard way
What I know, I had to discover
What I know could save you some trouble
Cos I know what I know, the hard way...
Yeah, yeah, yeah-ie...

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm
I know what I know
(You're sure you won't mind)
I know what I know
(You wouldn't have to rewind)
I know what I know
I know what I know
(If I could show you my mind)
I know what I know
(You wouldn't have to rewind)
I know what I know
(You wouldn't have to rewind)
I know what I know
(Rewind)

I used to think I was so clever
But now I see I was just like you

Until I discovered what I know
Could save you some trouble
What I know, I learned the hard way
What I know, I had to discover
What I know, could save you some trouble
Cos I know what I know, the hard way
Yeah, yeah, yeah-ie...
Yeah, yeah, yeah-ie...
Yeah, yeah, yeah-ie...

Fade out
