Kelly Clarkson – Mr. Know It All lyrics
Mr. Know It All,
Well, you, you think you know it all,
But you don't know a thing at all,
Ain't it something y'all.
When somebody tells you something 'bout you,
Think that they know you more than you do.
So you take it down, another pill to swallow.

Mr. Bring Me Down,
Well, you, you like to bring me down, don't you?
But I ain't laying down, baby I ain't going down.
Can't nobody tell me how it's gonna be,
Nobody's gonna make a fool out of me.
Baby, you should know that I lead, not follow.

[Chorus]
Oh, you think that you know me, know me,
That's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely.
'Cause baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me.
You ain't got the right to tell me,
When and where to go, no right to tell me.
Acting like you own me lately.
Yeah, baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me.

Mr. Play Your Games,
Only got yourself to blame,
When you want me back again,
But I ain't fallin' back again.
'Cause I'm living my truth without your lies,
Let's be clear, baby, this is goodbye.
I ain't comin' back tomorrow.

[Chorus]
Oh, you think that you
know me, know me,
That's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely.
'Cause baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me.
You ain't got the right to tell me,
When and where to go, no right to tell me.
Acting like you own me lately.
Yeah, baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me.

So what, you've got the world at your feet,
And you know everything about everything,
But you don't,
You still think I'm comin' back, but baby, you'll see yeah

Oh you think that you know me, know me (yeah),
That's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely (oh).
'Cause baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me!

(Oh you think that you know me, know me)
You ain't got the right to tell me,
(That's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely)
When and where to go, no right to tell me.
Acting like you own me lately!
Yeah, baby, you don't know a thing about me,
(That's why I'm leaving you lonely, lonely)
You don't know a thing about me.

Mr. Know It All,
Well, you, you think you know it all,
But you don't know a thing at all.
Yeah, baby, you don't know a thing about me,
You don't know a thing about me.

    I think this song is about a girl who has a crush on a boy and he pretends to like her, then he starts to make all her decisions and control her. He then realises what a brilliant girl she was and starts to like her. But then she decides that she has had enough of him and she's going to leave him, but newspapers are teasing her about it. She decides to move own because that's for the best ;).

    Its about a person who tries to control your life, because they can and one day you wake up and discover you are in control of your life, then you take them by surprise you show them you are strong, that you don't need them and they really don't know you. You break lose from the chains that bind you and set yourself freeand in the process you never go back. You didn't lose anything but in the in the end they lost the best thing they ever had.

    I think it's about the media. In the film clip she is surrounded by all these headlines about her such as "So Single Kelly" and "The Win Went to her Head". Etc. So I think she's saying that they think they know her - but they don't know her at all. And that they 'like to bring her down' as her lyrics say. Always writing bad stuff because they never seem to have anything positive to say. It might also be about her label. I don't know how they are with her but they may put her under pressure to be what they want her to be - not be who she is.

    I think this song is about a girl who liked a boy and he didn't like her at first so he took her for granted and never got to know her really. He thought he knew her and made her feel bad about herself but he really didn't know her. Then he realized who she really was and he liked her but now shes not going back to him because he got her all wrong. He thought she would always like him but that's where he went wrong, people move on and they wont be there forever.

    What the song actually means children, is she is in a controlling relationship with a tyrant of a man and he thinks he may know everythin about her and control who she sees, where she goes but she has take enough of his s*t, and she doesn't love him anymore, and is leaving him, unbeknownst to him she will have left to a refuge perhaps, and he will know buggerall about it until he gets home and finds her gone.
    In short, men if you use and abuse a woman and don't give her credit for being strong! Now you will be stuck on your big fat arrogant ownsome.

    I love this song, but inestead of singing about a boyfriend, I sing it about my ex-bestfriend. I thought she was the best friend ever, but then she started controlling me and she'd never let me do what I wanted, but when I broke friends with her she started bullying me. She accused me of lying to her and made up loads of rumers about me, my family, and my friends.
