​How Do They Know

This song is by Giles, Giles and Fripp and appears on the album The Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles & Fripp (1968) by ​Giles, Giles & Fripp.

When you stop and ask, "Which way do we go?"
And they all say, "Follow me!"
How do they know?

So you follow on and stumble and fall
And a voice says, "Ah, who's he?"
How do they know? How do they know?

Now you're beginning to realise
The first will not be the last
Ask them please not to go so fast
'Cause the dust is sucking your eyes
Dust is sucking your eyes

Tear yourself away and sit for a while
And the band goes marching on
How do they know? How do they know?

Now you're beginning to realise
The first will not be the last
Ask them please not to go so fast
'Cause the dust is sucking your eyes
Dust is sucking your eyes

When you stop and ask, "Which way do we go?"
And they all say, "Follow me!"
How do they know?

So you follow on and stumble and fall
And a voice says, "Ah, who's he?"
How do they know? How do they know?
How do they know? How do they know?
