Some fans speculate that "I'd Like to Know" is one of several songs on The Special Goodness with lyrics directed toward Rivers Cuomo [citation needed].




You know I'd like to think
That you've been pretty cool
But I have given up lying to myself
You know it makes me laugh
To see you doing well
But it never fails to leave me so mystified
I'd like to know I don't think
That I will ever understand

Feeling pretty good about the big success
What makes people feel the need to get their fill?
I guess it's not too hard to preach it to the choir
When you show them how to sing it and they sing along

I'd like to know, I don't think that I will ever understand
It beats me down a little further every single day

I've made a natural selection, of course it's none of the above

I'd like to know, I don't think that I will ever understand
I want to feel like I don't have to try and understand
