I Know Thing Now is a song from Into the Woods. It is sung by Little Red Riding Hood to describe what The Wolf did and for thanking The Baker.


Little Red Riding Hood:
Mother said,
"Straight ahead"
Not to delay
Or be misled.

I should have heeded
Her advice...
But he seemed so nice.

And he showed me things,
Many beautiful things,
That I hadn't thought to explore.

They were off my path,
So I never had dared.
I had been so careful
I never had cared.

And he made me feel excited-
Well, excited and scared.

When he said, "Come in!"
With that sickening grin,
How could I know what was in store?

Once his teeth were bared,
Though, I really got scared-
Well, excited and scared

But he drew me close
And he swallowed me down,
Down a dark slimy path
Where lie secrets that I never want to know,

And when everything familiar
Seemed to disappear forever,
At the end of the path
Was Granny once again.

So we lay in the dark
Until you came and set us free,
And you brought us to the light,
And we're back at the start.

And I know things now,
Many valuable things,
That I hadn't known before:

Do not put your faith
In a cape and a hood
They will not protect you
The way that they should

And take extra care with strangers-
Even flowers have their dangers.
And though scary is exciting,
Nice is different than good.

Now I know:
Don't be scared.
Granny is right,
Just be prepared.
Isn't it nice to know a lot?
And a little bit not...
