"How I Know You" is the fifth song in Elton John's and Tim Rice's musical Aida.

Lyrics

Mereb:
I grew up in your hometown, at least began to grow,
I hadn't got to 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.
How I know you.

Before 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 you are his daughter, you probably can tell
How I know you.
Yes, I know you.

Aida:
You know too much, and what you say is better left unknown,
And now I'm just a slave like you, our lives our not our own.

Mereb:
I never have abandoned, and nor I think could you,
That spark of hope for freedom no terror can subdue.

Aida:
My only hope is silence, you've never seen my face.

Mereb:
No, you remain a princess in any time or place.

Aida:
You don't know me.

Mereb:
Yes, I know you.

Aida:
You don't know me.

Mereb:
How I know you.
How I know you.
