If you only knew and all the problems
Like a man like me has to face
If you only knew and all the silly
Things that keeps a man in his place
I wouldn't wanna steer you wrong
But if you wanna sing your own song
Your gonna have to lose a few
If you only knew, yeah
If you only knew

If you only knew and all the dealings
That goes on in the back of your store
If you only knew how that one that's
Got a lot can't wait to get more, more, more, more
I wouldn't wanna cramp your style
But if you wanna make it all worthwhile
You're gonna have to have to bring it through
If you only knew, if you only knew

Gimme some horns

Yeah

C'mon steer me wrong
You won't steer me wrong

If you only knew
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

If you only knew what could happen to
A man for telling the truth, yeah
If you only knew and all the scruples
That go down in gin and vermouth
I wouldn't wanna steer you wrong
But if you wanna sing your own song
Your gonna have to lose a few
If you only knew, yeah

If you only knew
That goes on in the back of your store
If you only knew
If you only knew

What goes on in the back of your store
Hey baby, hey baby
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew
What goes on in the back of your store
Hey baby, if you only knew
