Hackett, Steve - I Know What I Like Lyrics



It's one o'clock and time for lunch - dum dee dum dee dum
When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench
I can always hear them talk

There's always been Ethel:
"Jacob, wake up, you've got to tidy your room now"
And then Mr. Lewis:
"Isn't it time that he was out on his own"
Over the garden wall, two little love birds cuckoo to you
Keep them mowing blades sharp...

I know what I like
And I like what I know
Getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show

Sunday night, Mr. Farmer called, said:
"Listen son, you're wasting time
There's a future for you in the fire-escape trade
Come up to town"
But I remembered a voice from the past:
"Gambling only pays when you're winning"
I had to thank old Miss Mort for schooling a failure
Keep them mowing blades sharp...

I know what I like
And I like what I know
Getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show
I know what I like
And I like what I know
Getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show

When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench
I can always hear them talk
Me, I'm just a lawnmower
You can tell me by the way I walk

  7. Auras Sparsas The Retard

    Does it better than Daryl Stuermer, hell Steve Hackett wrote it!!!

  8. EMUKULELE

    Great performance, playing and singing is spectacular. Maybe not as warm as Collins version on Seconds Out, but amazing nonetheless. The jazz-fusion improvisation is a nice touch. Way to go Steve and The Band!!!

  9. Stephane Nicolas

    Don't forget that all those songs are very hard to sing and play for sure ! So I think that Nad Sylvan does his best to share Genesis 's music with us !
    Steve Hackett is perfect as usual !

  10. Juniemoon Hagan

    Great stuff, thank you for sharing :-)

  11. Clayton Vernon

  13. Les Blat

    Thank God I got to go see Genesis in the seventies three times and yet Phill is so much better, God bless age.

  14. Sandeep Sreehari

    I wonder which Les Paul Steve is using. It's got a tremolo bar. Is that a Floyd Rose pick up ?

    Juan Contreras

    kevin kline

    No argument here.

  18. Jeff Lucht

    Thank You Mr. Hackett! Nicely Done!

  19. Matthew Williams

    Talk about sucking all the life out of such a classic song, where the hell is the showmanship that both Peter Gabrial and Phil Collins put into the stage shows.

    Jeff Lucht

    He's Fn Old Dude!

    Nigel Farage

    Hackett is 40 years older and you want his younger band showing him up. Its about the music...Dumbfuck

  20. Matthew Bluhm

    S.Hackett is no front man. Give him back his stool and put him left of centre.

  21. Wolf458

    god this sucks

    Dave Appleby

    sack the vocalist ... rest is ok

    Eder Mojica

    hardtolivealittleand be No.

    TheBlueComet832

    Then why did you comment. This is fine to me. If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it.

    No Curd

    People just like being negative and getting a reaction out of people.

  22. BluebellsofEngland
