"I Think I Kinda, You Know" is a song from "The Auditions", the first episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. It is performed in three different versions, one by Nini (Olivia Rodrigo), the second by Ricky (Joshua Bassett) and the third as a duet by them.

Summary

In the episode, the song was written by Nini (Olivia Rodrigo) to show her love for Ricky (Joshua Bassett), which causes them to break up. Later on, Ricky performs a second verse as he auditions for Troy Bolton in East High's production of High School Musical. A duet studio version was released as a single and on the series soundtrack, combining both verses. An acoustic rendition of the duet was also released.

Lyrics

Nini:
So much has happened, think of what we've done
In the time that the Earth has traveled 'round the Sun
Winter, spring, summer an' we're back to fall
We've been together hand-in-hand through it all

From the minute we kissed and my heart skipped a beat
To the night that we danced, I was swept off my feet
Sure is every year has to come to an end
I'd go spinnin' 'round the Sun with you
Again and again and again and again

I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
Like the way that we flow
Like the way that we go
And I love I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
You know, you know

I can't help dreamin' of you
Guess I'm sayin' I don't not love you
You know, you know, you know

Ricky:
So much has happened, think of what we've done
In the time that the Earth has traveled 'round the Sun
Winter, spring, summer an' we're back to fall
We've been together hand-in-hand through it all

It's just three little words, yeah, it's not a big deal
It's not like I can help feelin' all that I feel
And by now, I'm sure ya think it's so obvious
But just in case it's not
What I'm sayin' is this, what I'm sayin' is this

I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
Like the way that we flow
Like the way that we go
And I love I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
You know, you know

You know how we can talk all night
And not run outta things to talk about
It's rare that somethin' feels this right
It feels so right

I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
You know, you know
I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
You know, you know

I can't help dreamin' of you
Guess I'm sayin' I don't not love you
You know, you know, you know

Nini:
So much has happened, think of what we've done
In the time that the Earth has traveled 'round the Sun
Winter, spring, summer an' we're back to fall
We've been together hand-in-hand through it all

From the minute we kissed and my heart skipped a beat
To the night that we danced, I was swept off my feet
Sure is every year has to come to an end
I'd go spinnin' 'round the Sun with you
Again and again and again and again

Nini & Ricky:
I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
Like the way that we flow
Like the way that we go
And I love
Nini: I think I kinda, you know
Ricky: I think I kinda, you know
Nini: I think I kinda
Nini & Ricky: You know, you know, you know

Ricky:
Sometimes you know exactly what to say
Then ya open your mouth and the words go away
Don't want you to wonder or to doubt or guess
So let me tell ya clearly what I'm tryna express

It's just three little words, yeah, it's not a big deal
It's not like I can help feelin' all that I feel
And by now, I'm sure ya think it's so obvious
But just in case it's not
What I'm sayin' is this, what I'm sayin' is this

Nini & Ricky:
I think I kinda, you know
I think I kinda, you know
Like the way that we flow
Like the way that we go
And I love
Nini: I think I kinda, you know
Ricky: I think I kinda, you know
Nini: I think I kinda
Nini & Ricky: You know, you know, you know

Ricky:
You know how we can talk all night
And not run outta things to talk about
Nini:
It's rare that somethin' feels this right
Nini & Ricky: It feels so right

Nini & Ricky:
I think I kinda, you know
Nini: I think I kinda
Nini & Ricky: You know, you know, you know
Ricky: I think I kinda, you know
Nini: Ooh, I think I kinda, you know
Nini & Ricky:
I think I kinda, you know
You know, you know

Ricky:
I can't help dreamin' of you
Nini:
Guess I'm sayin' I don't not love you
Nini & Ricky:
You know, you know, you know
