Music & Lyrics : Bill Dake ASCAP
Originally written 1975: Bill Dake
Re-write 2020: Bill Dake

I KNOW what you're thinkin'
I can read that look, you're an open book
I KNOW what you're plannin'
You can't hide behind those innocent eyes
I KNOW what's been cookin'
I can name that dish that's been growin' cold
I KNOW what you're thinkin'
And it's not good

I KNOW where you're goin'
It's no big surprise, not hard to analyze
You've been recently driftin'
Into another place where there isn't space
For we two to tango
Seems a different band has taken to the stand
I KNOW what you're thinkin'

I've known all along
That you'ld slip away to sing your siren song
To someone new, but it won't be long
'Till you sneak back to me
Like you've done nothin' wrong

Alone in the quiet
Workin' out my revenge
Seeing a vision
Of your dark and empty bitter end
I may not pull the trigger
But you'll never know for sure
If you knew what I'm thinkin'
It's not good
