I knew it

Lyrics and music : Rex Potam

My latest song, dedicated to people who think they know everything.
Some surprises, notably a rarely used metric (5/4), and many modal borrowings.



Santa Claus will come
If I am a good child
Daddy and Mummy told me
They know everything

I know it
I believe it
Cannot be otherwise

Mary’s so pretty
I think of her and stutter
Mum and Dad do not know that
I’ll soon marry her

I know it
I believe it
Cannot be otherwise

Solid skills from school
My work ticks round and sound
I have new friends who teach me
White is black and the world’s not round

I know it
I believe it
Cannot be otherwise

Ideas leak from ship as mice
I must un-learn many facts
Trust freely given is nice
But check your guts for mistakes

I know it
I believe it
Cannot be otherwise

I know it
I believe it
But — can be otherwise
