"Any Fule Kno That" is the first song on the 1998 album Abandon by Deep Purple.[1] Vocalist Ian Gillan takes a spoken word approach in the verses to the song, comparable to rapping. It is also one of the rare occasions in which his lyrics are explicit, in this case using the word "shit". The unusual spelling of the title comes from the Nigel Molesworth books.[2]
