"I Don't Know" as written by Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars....
Do we give it up? (I don't know)
Should we give it hell? (I don't know)
Are you makin' a fortune? (I don't know)
Or don't you wanna tell? (I don't know)
Should we give it up? (I don't know)
Or hang around some more? (I don't know)
Should we buy some beer? (I don't know)
Can I use your hairspray?

One foot in the door, the other foot in the gutter
The sweet smell that you adore, yeah I think I'd rather smother

Should we top it off? (I don't know)
It's startin' to smoke (I don't know)
Who's behind the board? (I don't know)
They tell me he's a dope (I don't know)
What the fuck you sayin'? (I don't know)
Our lawyer's on the phone (I don't know)
How much are you in for? (I don't know)
What did we do now?

One foot in the door, the other one in the gutter
The sweet smell that they adore, I think I'd rather smother

One foot in the door, the other one in the gutter
The sweet smell that they adore, well I think I'd rather smother

(4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12)

Are you guys still around? (I don't know)
Whatcha gonna do with your lives? (Nothin'!)

One foot in the door, the other one in the gutter
The sweet smell that you adore, hey I think I'd rather smother

One foot in this door, the other one in the gutter
The sweet smell that they adore, oh I think I'd rather smother

    General CommentIt should be: Should we turn it off
    It's starting to smoke
    Who's behind the board
    They tell me he's a joke

    He's talking about an amp or something like that.

    The song is about self sabotage and how it keeps the band from being successful.

    The sweet smell you adore is the sweet smell of success.
