"Do You Know Me" as written by and Peter Doherty....
Do you know me? I don't think so!
Do you know me? I don't think so!
You romanticize the dark and gloomy past
Trying to escape from the underclass
You darkened the bright and beautiful day
You're breaking my heart in every way
And tell me everything is dandy and fine
You're no friend of mine

I took you in and you stole from me
But you still got everything I need
You're walking so tall, you're looking so mean
You're walking so tall, you're looking so mean
But you tell me everything is dandy and fine
You're no friend of mine

Do you know me? I don't think so!
Do you know me? I don't think so!
You romanticize the dark and gloomy past
Trying to escape from the upper class
You darkened the bright and beautiful day
You're fucking up my head in every way
And tell me everything's dandy and fine

    General Commentthis is a good song i think it could perhaps have two takes on it :the medias perception of him and his lifestyle choices or his relationship with carl :Trying to escape from the underclass as him and carl got themselves out of poverty but then carl realised it
    wasnt as good as it sounded Trying to escape from the upper class

    You're fucking up my head in every way
    And tell me everything's dandy and fine
    You're no friend of mine
    this part suggests again thats its about carl

    thats not official just what i think it could be about

    General CommentWhy wasn't this on the album, or "Man who came to stay"? or "Gang of gin" would have a made a good album into a fantastic one. Oh well I wont grumble, summers nearly over.

    General Commentwhen I hear this song I always think of drug addiction, somebody on drugs talking about how their addiction fucked up their life.

    General CommentIn the Royalty Songs version I have of this song , after the 'I took you in and you stole...' verse. It goes:

    They think they know you
    Yeah they think they know you but they only see one side
    How can they know you
    How can they know you
    when you don't show your Jekyll and just show your Hyde?
    And do you know me?
    No, I don't think so

    Wonderful song :]

    General CommentI think davey should never post on forums again. Not every song Pete or Carl wrote is about drugs.
    Great song though. Well worth the price alone for the Albion LP.
