Played by the Dead in 1966, but then dropped. It's possible that the original title was Otis On A Shakedown Cruise.

Lyrics

If you wanna know what time it is, you don't have to ask
If you wanna know what hers and his, you don't have to ask
If you wanna know what's real or not, you don't have to ask
If you wanna know where to find your spot, you don't have to ask
You don't have to ask
You don't have to ask
You already know
You already know

If you wanna leave your troubles behind, you don't have to ask
If you wanna go away and lose your mind, you don't have to ask
If it's peace that you're looking for
You got the key to every door, you already know

If there's a way out you'll find out and see all and be all
You'll never wonder what spell you been under
To make you forget all this time

If you're looking for the way, you don't have to ask
You can see it plain as day, you don't have to ask
If you're trying to find what's true, just take a look at all of you
You don't have to ask
You don't have to ask
You already know
You already know
