Boz said of his recorder playing at the end of the track:

"We did some great ambient recorder playing together on “We’ll Let You Know,” where we didn’t really listen to the track, and that was fun."

How sad are we?
And how sad have we been?
We'll let you know, we'll let you know
Oh, but only if you're really interested

You wonder how
We've stayed alive 'til now?
We'll let you know, we'll let you know
But only if you're really interested

We're all smiles
Then, honest I swear, it's the turnstiles
That make us hostile

We will descend
On anyone unable to defend themselves

And the songs we sing
They're not supposed to mean a thing

We may seem cold
Or we may even be
The most depressing people you've ever known
At heart, what's left, we sadly know
That we are the last
Truly British people you'll ever know
We are the last truly British people
You will ever know

You'll never, never want to know
