"I Know Somethin' ('bout You)" as written by and Jerry Fulton Cantrell Michael Christopher Starr....
Why can't I take it all OK?
I like to dig and fuck around with your day
I'm gonna tell your mama
Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name
Ain't now way you'll go without me
Every chance I'll make you pay

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'

Why can't I put your words away
I'd like to have more of you in my veins
I'm gonna tell your papa
Yeh I'm gonna try and ball your babe
Your gold key don't fit my crapper
Ain't got no shit today

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'
On your face, in my space, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'

I'm gonna tell your mama
Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name
Ain't no way you'll go without me
Every chance I'll make you pay

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'
On your face, in my space, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'

    General Commenty is that all aic songs have 2 b about heroin? layne wasnt even on heroin when he made this song.. this song is clearly about breakin up with a girl... he sayin that if u dont want me, then im gonna make ur life hell cuz he knows things about her.. stuff that he can use against her.. just listen and study the words if u want the meaning, dont automaticly think that every song from aic is about heroin.. cuz it just fuck it up 4 the rest of the fans...

    General CommentThis song is probably about the media. Although the band hasn't really interacted that much with the media, they always complained about the media. If Layne says "Man in the Box"(same album) is in his opinion loosely about the media, I would say this song is definitely about the media. This song wasn't even written by Layne, Cantrell wrote it, along with most of the other songs. I hate when people assume Layne writes these songs, then assume they're about drugs.

    General CommentThe Real Thing is more about taking coke to be honest.

    This song is just about having a problem with someone and not about an ex girlfriend. Other wise he wouldnt threaten to ball this persons babe....

    How about we read the lyrics then make judgement.

    General CommentSounds like blackmail...but that's just me. Maybe there was a messy breakup or something.

    My OpinionAlmost sure its about media and paparazzi, or people who spend too much of their time looking on the others lives, using secrets they discover against them, as they are weak to get somethinng doing anything better.

    General Commenti tink this song is about heroin talking to the user, saying that if he's not careful, its gonna ruin his life.

    General CommentYeah, that sounds about right. I always wonder why this song was so overlooked--even by the band themselves. i thought it kicked.

    General CommentSounds more like something the Red Hot Chili Peppers would play. It's tight

    General CommentListen to the song "Real Thing" from the same album (next song, in fact)and then tell me Layne wasn't into heroin at the time. He obviously was. However, I do agree that people assume way too often that AIC songs are all about drugs.
