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 probably explains

How I know you

Until that fateful morning my family enjoyed
A privileged existence, for my father was employed
As adviser to the king, no less, which surely rings a bell
For as you 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
