Las letras de I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)

It's one o'clock and time for lunch,
When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.

Es una y la hora para el almuerzo,
Cuando el sol brilla con fuerza y me acuesto en el banco,
Siempre se oye hablar.


There's always been Ethel:
"Jacob, wake up! You've got to tidy your room now."

Siempre ha habido Ethel:
"Jacob, despierta! Tienes que ordenar su habitación."


And then Mister Lewis:
"Isn't it time that he was out on his own?"

Y entonces el señor Lewis:
"¿No es tiempo de que estaba por su cuenta?"


Over the garden wall, two little lovebirds - cuckoo to you!
Keep them moving blades sharp...

Sobre el muro del jardín, dos tortolitos poco - cuco para usted!
Manténgalas afiladas cuchillas en movimiento ...


I know what I like, and I like what I know;
Getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show.

Yo sé lo que me gusta, y me gusta lo que sé;
Cada vez mejor en tu armario,
paso a paso un más allá de su espectáculo.


Sunday night, Mr Farmer called, said:
"Listen son, you're wasting time; there's a future for you in the fire escape trade. Come up to town!"
But I remembered a voice from the past;
"Gambling only pays when you're winning"
I had to thank old Miss Mort for schooling a failure.
Keep them moving blades sharp...

domingo por la noche, el señor granjero llamado, dijo:
"Escucha hijo, estás perdiendo el tiempo, hay un futuro para usted en el tráfico de salida de emergencia Ven a la ciudad."
Pero me acordé de una voz del pasado;
"El juego sólo se paga cuando uno está ganando"
Que tenía que agradecer a la señorita de edad Mort de escolarización un fracaso.
Manténgalas afiladas cuchillas en movimiento ...


I know what I like, and I like what I know;
getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show.

Yo sé lo que me gusta, y me gusta lo que sé;
cada vez mejor en tu armario,
paso a paso un más allá de su espectáculo.


I know what I like, and I like what I know;
getting better in your wardrobe,
stepping one beyond your show.

Yo sé lo que me gusta, y me gusta lo que sé;
cada vez mejor en tu armario,
paso a paso un más allá de su espectáculo.


When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.
Me, I'm just a lawnmower,
you can tell me by the way I walk.


Cuando el sol brilla con fuerza y me acuesto en el banco,
Siempre se oye hablar.
Yo, yo sólo soy una cortadora de césped,
usted me puede decir por mi forma de caminar.

'I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)' was the first charting single by the rock band Genesis. The single was first released in the UK in August 1973, but did not become a hit until April 1974, when it reached number 21 in the UK Singles Chart.

Its original b-side was the non-album track 'Twilight Alehouse,' a song about a lonely man who finds solace in the local tavern. This song had been in Genesis's live set since 1970 but was not recorded in the studio until 1973.

'I Know What I Like' is also the second track on the 'Selling England by the Pound' album. A lighthearted pop song, it provides a moment of comic relief after the opening number, 'Dancing With The Moonlit Knight.' The song's lyrics, like many of Peter Gabriel's in his Genesis days, tell a story. It portrays a young man who pushes a lawn mower for a living and shares his philosophy on life that he does not want to grow up and do great things, being perfectly happy where he is. Betty Swanwick's painting 'The Dream', which was used as the 'Selling England' album cover, provided inspiration for the lyrics.

The song has a somewhat Eastern sound, full of hand percussion rhythms and an electric sitar riff from Mike Rutherford (played in concert by Steve Hackett), and it foreshadows the world music that Gabriel would later experiment with in his solo career. Rutherford's bass playing is also highly prominent, and guitarist Steve Hackett uses an effect during the intro and ending to imitate the sound of a lawn mower.

Later live versions of this song (such as the one on 'Seconds Out') feature an extended instrumental section which includes snippets of various other Genesis songs – such as 'Visions of Angels,' 'Blood on the Rooftops,' 'Dancing with the Moonlit Knight' and 'Stagnation' – and even songs by other artists, such as the Animals' 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.' Phil Collins performed a dance during these instrumentals, in which he would beat himself silly with a tambourine; this can seen in the 'Genesis: In Concert' film from 1977, as well as the live DVD 'When in Rome 2007'.

'I Know What I Like' was the band's only pop hit of their early years, at a time when progressive rock bands largely avoided the singles market. The song was even played on Top of the Pops and danced to by Pan's People. Its success would not be topped until 'And Then There Were Three's 'Follow You, Follow Me,' some four years later, and it remains the band's biggest hit without Phil Collins as frontman.

For the The Way We Walk and Turn It On Again tours, this song was played as part of a medley of old Genesis songs. During the Turn It On Again tour shows, images from the band's history cycled by in the background.

In 1993, Marillion's ex-frontman Fish did a cover version of this song on his 'Songs from the Mirror' album.
