Kelly Clarkson Releases ‘Mr. Know It All’ Lyrics

By: / August 24, 2011

Kelly Clarkson’s brand-new single, Mr. Know It All, doesn’t debut until next Tuesday, but the Grammy-winning pop star went ahead and released the handwritten lyrics to the song Wednesday on her official site.

The song, the first single off her new CD, Stronger (in stores Oct. 25), tells the story of a scorned woman who decides to leave her know-it-all boyfriend behind once an for all.

“Oh you think that you know me,” she sings. “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.”

What the song will actually sound like remains to be seen. But based on these lyrics alone, this could be Kelly’s next single-girl anthem, a la Since U Been Gone.

Kelly Clarkson – Mr. Know It All

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
