I Know

Mills-Weske, 1983 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 13-05-64

Johnny Kidd (voc) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

A strident number, penned in part by the band's then manager Gordon Mills.  It was sent to the vaults for a long holiday.  Mills also managed young Tommy Scott, soon to be better known by his stage name (after the recent film) of Tom Jones.  Jones idolised Kidd and would benefit from his managers' song writing prowess.  During a television spot that some of the Pirates were watching.  It was almost as if they were watching the Guv'nor himself!

 
I know you don't want me no more
No more, no no more
And I don't want to be hurt anymore
Anymore
I, I've been a fool
Everything I did was so wrong
If I can't love you right, baby
I don't have to love you at all

Well, I know you don't want me no more
No more, no no more
And if there had to be someone loving you more
Loving you more
If there's no use in me crying now
All because you have to put me down
If you don't want me no more baby
Ain't no use in your hangin' round

(instrumental break)

Well, I know you don't love me no more
No more, no no more
And I don't want to be hurt anymore
Anymore
I, I've been a fool
Everything I did was so wrong
If I can't love you right, baby
I don't have to love you at all

Yeah, but I know, yeah I know
Know know know, know know know
I know you don't love me,
You don't love me anymore
(improvise to fade)
