"Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" as written by and Bennie/marcus Benjamin....
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 seem to be bad
I'm just a soul whose 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
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 it's problems and I get my share
And that's one thing I never mean to do
Because I love you.

Oh,oh baby don't you know I'm human
I have thoughts like any other one
Sometime I find myself regretting some foolish thing
Some little simple thing I've done
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

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

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

    General CommentI love this song so much.
    One of my favourite songs ever!

    The chorus rules.

    To me, it's simply about someone asking for forgiving after doing something bad.

    General Commentto me once again through his songs I can share simplicity, gentelness, careless that Joe is living.Specially here we can feel how it's sometimes dificult for him to accept the soul and the material world to live together, and it is with a lot of kindness that he shows it to us, thank you big soul, thank's
