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've said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

I know what I know
I'll sing what I've 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, "Oh w ho am I to blow against the wind"

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

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

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

I know what I know
I know what I know
I know what I know
I know what I know
