The Monroes – What Do All The People Know lyrics

You know I told you once tonight
That you could always speak your mind
You work so hard to say what's right
I watch you do it all the time
And when I called you on the phone
You said that I could be the one
But here I'm standing all alone
And you're out lying in the sun

Tell me am I getting in to deep
Every night I'm talking in my sleep
Lately I am so confused
I really don't know what to do
Could you be the one I'm thinking of?
Could you be the girl I really love?
All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know


You know I told you once tonight
That you could always speak your mind
You work so hard to say what's right
I watch you do it all the time
And when I called you on the phone
You said that I could be the one
But here I'm standing all alone
And you're out lying in the sun

Tell me am I getting in to deep
Every night I'm talking in my sleep
Maybe we just holding on
To something that'll soon be gone
Could you be the one I'm thinking of?
Could you be the girl I really love?
All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know

Do you think I'm blind to what you do?
Do you think I really care for you?
Or is it just another game that you and I pretend to play
Do you think we both should let it show?
Do you think we both should let it go?
Or is it just another game that you and I pretend to play

Tell me am I getting in to deep
Every night I'm talking in my sleep
Lately I am so confused
I really don't know what to do
Could you be the one I'm thinking of?
Could you be the girl I really love?
All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know

All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know
All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know

All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know
All the people tell me so
But what do all the people know

    According to Bob Monroe, the song's title was inspired by similar phrases his mother would say as a reaction to inscrutable speech or actions of other people. The song's content was inspired by the title and (unconfirmed) the basic plot of a book, film or play.

    Author/singer is desperately seeking confirmation of reciprocated feelings and relationship intent from their object of affection. "All the [other] people" assure him that he's found his 'soulmate' and should continue pursuing her. This advice/reassurance is quickly dismissed though because they're merely observers that cannot truly know his or "the girl['s]" thoughts and feelings.

    He needs reassurance from her but when pressed she becomes evasive. At some point he begins to suspect that he'll never hear the words he needs her to say and even entertains the possibility that their relationship is nothing more than a temporary amusement and the encouragement "all the people" give might be intended to (intentionally or not) to ensure that he keeps playing along.
