Paul McCartney – Nobody Knows lyrics

Ooh ooh,
They say nobody knows, nobody knows.

Which one of you can tell me
What is I'm looking at?
Anyone who can has got to be a crazy cat.
'Cause I believe that nobody knows, no, nobody knows.
Yeah, nobody knows,
Lord, I cannot tell you,
Well, that's the way I like it, yeah now, nobody knows.

Nobody knows, ooh-uh-ih,
Oh, nobody knows, uh-uh,
Well, lord, you know that nobody knows.

Samson and delilah would have made a crazy pair,
If that silly woman hadn't shaven off his hair.
I believe that nobody knows,
Well, nobody knows, no, no,
But that's the way I like it,
Oh now, nobody knows, nobody knows, oh no.

Nobody knows.

Ooh-uh, nobody,
Ah, nobody, nobody knows,
But that's the way I like it,
That's the way I like it, nobody knows, so nobody knows.

I may go hungry, maybe next week,
Well, if I do, babe, I'll still find something to eat.
And you know, nobody knows,
No, nobody knows,
Well, that's the way I like it, baby, nobody knows.

And that includes you, honey,
Nobody knows,
I'll pay your rent,
I'll do you right,
Nobody knows, most every night,
But still there's nobody knows, uh,
No, no, nobody knows,
And that's the way I like to keep it
Just so nobody knows.
