Lyrics

I grew up in your hometown
At least I began to grow
I hadn't had my first shave
Before the body blow

Egyptians in the courtyard
My family in chains
You witnessed our abduction
Which possibly explains

How I know you

Until that fateful morning
My family enjoyed
A privileged existence
For my father was employed

As advisor to the king no less
Which surely rings a bell
For as your are his daughter
You probably can tell

How I know you
How I know you

But enough of reminiscence
And such happy memories
The reason why I know you
Is really none of these

You cannot hide your royalty
Although you hide your face
I know you were my princess
In any time and place

Yes I know you
Yes I know you
How I know you
