Well now – who does this remind you of?

By Bernie Bell 

Thank you Stevie….

He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Stevie Wonder

He’s a man with a plan
Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Playin’ hard, talkin’ fast
Makin’ sure that he won’t be last
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Makes a deal with a smile
Knowin’ all the time that his lie’s a mile
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Must be seen there’s no doubt
He’s the coolest one with the biggest mouth
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

When you tell him he’s livin’ fast
He will say, “What do you know?”
If you had my kind of cash
You’d have more than one place to go, ooh

Any place he will play
His only concern is how much you’ll pay
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

If he shakes on a bet
He’s the kind of dude that won’t pay his debt, oh
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

When you say that he’s livin’ wrong
He’ll tell you he knows he’s livin’ right
And you’d be a stronger man
If you took Misstra Know-It-All’s advice, ooh, ooh

He’s the man with a plan
Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Take my word, please beware
Of a man that just don’t give a care, no
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Say, he’s Misstra Know-It-All

Take your hat off to the man who’s got the plan, yeah
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Every boy take your hand out
To the man that’s got the plan
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Give a hand to the man
That you know he’s got the plan, hey, hey, hey
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Don’t you know damn well he’s got the super plan, hey, hey
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Give a hand to the man
You know damn well he’s got the super plan, hey
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

If we had less of him
Don’t you know we’d have a better land

He’s Misstra Know-It-All

So give a hand to the man
Although you’ve given out as much as you can
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

Check his sound out, he’ll tell it all, hey
You talk too much, you worry me to death, hey, hey
He’s Misstra Know-It-All

  1. Absolute classic. One of my favourite albums of all times. And the lyrics fit so many Tory- and occasionally even Labour and LD- politicians today.
