Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
Baby, can you understand now
Sometimes I feel a little bad
Don't you know that no-one alive
Can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

But I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby, sometimes I'm 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

But I'm just a soul who's 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 it's problems and I get my share
And that's one thing I never mean to do

'Cause I love you
Oh, baby, don't you know I'm human
Have thoughts like any other one
And sometimes I find myself alone and regretting
Some foolish thing, some little simple thing I've done

But I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Life has it's problems and I get my share
But that's one thing I never mean to do

I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

No, don't
Don't do it
Don't let me be misunderstood

No, I'm just a soul
My intentions are good
Oh come on baby
Don't let me be misunderstood

Come on
Listen to me
