I Know What I Know — Paul Simon

I Know What I Know — Paul Simon

She looked me over
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
For an off-night
She said don’t I know you
From the cinematographer’s party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I’ll sing what I said
We come and we go
That’s a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She said there’s something about you
That really reminds me of money
She is the kind of a girl
Who could say things that
Weren’t that funny
I said what does that mean
I really remind you of money
She said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I’ll sing what I said
We come and we go
That’s a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She moved so easily
All I could think of was sunlight
I said aren’t you the woman
Who was recently given a Fulbright
She said don’t I know you
From the cinematographer’s party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I’ll sing what I said
We come and we go
That’s a thing that I keep
