"Mr. Knowitall" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Timothy W. Alexander....
They call me Mr. Knowitall
I will not compromise.
I will not be told what to do.
I shall not step aside.

They call me Mr. Knowitall
I have no time to waste.
My mouth it spews pure intellect.
And I've such elegant taste.

They call me Mr. Knowitall.
I sup the aged wine.
Oh I could tell such wonderous tales
If I should find the time.

I must be Mr. Knowitall
For ideas they come in bounds.
I am Mr. Knowitall
So spread the word around.
They call me Mr. Knowitall

I am so eloquent.
Perfection is my middle name
And whatever rhymes with eloquent.

    General CommentYou forgot the most important part....

    ... and doesn't know shit.

    In the final verse he says "Perfection is my middle name and whatever rhymes with eloquent". Les could definitely find aword that rhymes with eloquent, but instead he chooses to portray this last verse in this way to show that 'Know-it-alls' are not as good as they think. Anyone that can claim they are perfect should be able to rhyme that word.

    General CommentMetaphor: nobodies perferct
    Personal meaning: well, I think it could be about Les Clapyool himself if you think about the lyrics carefully, especially remembering the words to Shake Hands With Beef, and also thinking about how hard it would be even for him to think of a word that rhymes with eloquent!

    General Comment"Those who think they know everything are so annoying to those of us who do." That's the kind of thing it is.
