Don’t Let Me Be Mis­un­der­stood

Baby, do you under­stand me now?
Some­times I feel a little mad
But don’t you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I feel real bad.

I’m just a soul whose inten­tions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be mis­un­der­stood

Baby, some­times I’m so so care­free
With a joy that’s hard to hide
And some­times it seems that all I have to do is worry
And then you’re bound to see my oth­er side

I’m just a soul whose inten­tions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be mis­un­der­stood
I’m just a soul whose inten­tions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be mis­un­der­stood

If I seem edgy, I want you to know,
That I nev­er mean to take it out on you
Life has its prob­lems, and I get my share,
And that’s one thing I nev­er mean to do

Cause I love you,
Oh, yeah,

Oh, baby — don’t you know I’m human
I have thoughts like any oth­er one
Some­times I find myself, Lord, regret­ting
Some fool­ish thing, some little simple thing I’ve done

I’m just a soul whose inten­tions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be mis­un­der­stood
Yes, I’m just a soul whose inten­tions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be mis­un­der­stood
