The Knowledge Lyrics

by Janet Jackson

Count
One, two, three, four
One, two, one, two
One, two, one, two

One, two, three, four

Insight to what's going on
Information keeps us strong
What you don't know can hurt you bad
Take it from me you'll be walkin' around sad

Cryin' for a better day
Until you educate for a better way
So if you wanna be in control
Ya gotta get yourself in the know

Get the knowledge
That you really want
The knowledge
Do you really want?

It's the knowledge
What you really want
The knowledge
That you really want

Spreading vise don't believe the hype
You don't find the knowledge in a pipe
Too many lives go up in smoke
It's nice to laugh but don't be the joke

To get over get better
Try to be the possessor
Of the one thing we all need in life
To succeed take my advice

Get the knowledge
That you really want
The knowledge
Do you really want?

It's the knowledge
What you really want
The knowledge
That you really want

One, two, three, four

Prejudice no
Ignorance no
Bigotry no
Illiteracy no

Count
One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four

One, two, one, two
One, two, one, two
Knowledge
One, two, one, two
Knowledge
Knowledge

Listen it's up to everyone
If we're gonna change the way the world is run
The way to start is to rid the children of
Prejudice and ignorance

We've gotta teach our kids to read and write
That's the only way to win this fight for life
Education is the goal so
If you wanna be in the know

Knowledge
One, two, one, two
It's the one thing we all need in life
One, two, one, two
It's the knowledge

Knowledge
That you really want
You really need the knowledge
Do you really want?

It's the knowledge
What you really want
Knowledge
That you really want
One, two
