Knowing Me Knowing You Lyrics Abba

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time were through
(this time were through, this time were through
This time were through, were really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
Its the best I can do

Memries (memries), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)
Theyll be (theyll be), with me (with me) always (always)
In these old familiar rooms children would play
Now theres only emptiness, nothing to say

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time were through
(this time were through, this time were through
This time were through, were really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
Its the best I can do

The Story Behind the Song “Knowing Me Knowing You”

Knowing Me, Knowing You” is a hit single recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA. The song was written by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Stig Anderson, with the lead vocal sung by Anni-Frid Lyngstad. During recording sessions, it had the working titles of “Ring It In” and “Number 1, Number 1”. “Knowing Me, Knowing You” is featured on the Arrival album, and also on the Gold: Greatest Hits compilation.  knowing me knowing you lyrics

“Knowing Me, Knowing You” was recorded in 1976 at the Metronome studio in Stockholm and was released as a single in February 1977, becoming one of the group’s most successful hits. The B-side was “Happy Hawaii”, an arrangement of another ABBA song, “Why Did It Have to Be Me?”, but with a different lead vocalist and lyrics. “Knowing Me, Knowing You” was one of the first ABBA songs to deal with the break-up of a relationship, though with an upbeat quality to the music. It predates the divorces of the ABBA members, as well as further break-up songs to come: “The Winner Takes It All”, “One of Us” and “When All Is Said and Done”. Group member Benny Andersson named “Knowing Me, Knowing You” as one of ABBA’s best recordings in a 2004 interview, along with “Dancing Queen”, “The Winner Takes It All” and “When I Kissed the Teacher”. “Conociéndome, Conociéndote” is the Spanish language version of the song. It was included in the compilation Oro: Grandes Éxitos released in 1993.

“Knowing Me, Knowing You” proved to be one of ABBA’s most successful singles, hitting #1 in West Germany (ABBA’s sixth consecutive chart-topper there), the United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico and South Africa, while reaching the Top 3 in Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland. It was also a Top 10 hit in Australia, France, New Zealand and Norway. In the United States, it became ABBA’s sixth Top 20 single, peaking at #14 on the Hot 100, and also reached #7 on Billboard’s AC chart.

In the UK, “Knowing Me, Knowing You” began a second run of three consecutive #1 singles for ABBA (followed by “The Name of the Game” and “Take a Chance on Me”), the group having already had three consecutive #1’s in 1976.
