The Popdust Files: kelly clarkson, mr. know it all

Look, everyone, it’s a field guide to identifying “Mr. Know It All” when it inevitably leaks before the 30th! (Sorry, Kelly. Easy jokes must be made.) In lieu of sprinkling pieces of “Mr. Know It All” throughout the major Internet portals like Lady Gaga did, she scanned a handwritten document. How analog.

Before you’re either over- or underwhelmed, it’s always a bad idea to judge songs on lyrics alone, especially when–using “Born This Way” as an example again only because it fits so well–they’re not “message songs.” Lyrics are one component of the whole, and many argue that they’re the least important component. (See: anyone who likes music because it “has a good beat.”) This is strictly for memorization/news cycle purposes. That doesn’t keep us from our “Miss Independent” nostalgia. Perhaps she and Mr. Know It All should meet!

Full lyrics:

Mr. Know It All
Well ya think you know it all
But ya don’t know a thing at all
Ain’t it something y’all
When somebody tells you something bout you
Think that they know you more than you do
So you take it down another pill to swallow

Mr. Bring Me Down
Well ya like to bring me down, don’t ya
But I ain’t laying down
Baby I ain’t going down
Can’t nobody tell me how it’s gonna be
Nobody’s gonna make a fool out of me
Baby you should know that I lead not follow

(Chorus)
Oh you think that you know me
that’s why I’m leaving you lonely
Cause baby you don’t know a thing about me
You don’t know a thing about me

You ain’t got the right to tell me
When and where to go, no right to tell me
Acting like you own me lately
Yeah baby you don’t know a thing about me
You don’t know a thing about me

Mr. Play Your Games
Only got yourself to blame
When you want me back again
But I ain’t fallin back again

Cause I’m livin’ my truth without your lies
Let’s be clear baby, this is goodbye
I ain’t comin’ back tomorrow

(Chorus)

So what, you’ve got the world at your feet
And you know everything about everything
But you don’t
You still think I’m comin’ back but baby you’ll see

(Chorus)

Mr. Know It All
Well ya think you know it all
But ya don’t know a thing at all
Yeah baby you don’t know a thing about me
You don’t know a thing about me
