The Kinks was een Engelse rockgroep, ontstaan in 1963. De band bestond uit singer-songwriter Ray Davies, zijn broer en tevens leadgitarist Dave Davies en bassist Pete Quaife.

Begin jaren zestig besloten de twee broers een professionele band te beginnen. De broers traden al weleens op als duo. Toen Ray Davies naar de kunstacademie ging, probeerde Dave Davies samen met Quaife een band op te richten. De naam wisselde voortdurend en toen Ray Davies definitief toetrad in 1963, noemde de band zich The Ravens. De band nam Mick Avory aan als drummer. Op advies van hun manager veranderde de naam in The Kinks.



In 1970 hadden The Kinks een grote wereldhit met Lola. De band scoorde nog vier andere nummer 1-hits met de nummers

Dedicated Follower Of Fashion, Sunny Afternoon, Waterloo Sunset en Lola [Live].

Songtekst

And I know, and I know
And I know that everybody
And I know that everybody be happy
As happy as you and me
'Cause I know, I know

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love
Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know
And when I see ya walking down the street
Well it makes me happy to see you walking
It makes my life complete
'Cause I know, I know

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love
Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know
And I know that you and me
And I know that you and me be happy
As happy as we can be
'Cause I know, I know

Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say
Come on baby let me tell you
All the things I wanna say, and

Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love
Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love

Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love
Everybody's gonna be happy
Which means you and me, my love

And I know, and I know
And I know, and I know
And I know
