"Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" as written by Bennie Benjamin, Sol Marcus and Gloria Caldwell....
Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
Well, 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 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 meant to take it out on you
Life has it's problems and I've got my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do

'Cause I love you
Baby, don't you know I'm just human
And I've thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I find myself alone and regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

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 meant to take it out on you
Life has it's problems and I've got my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do

'Cause I love you
Baby, don't you know I'm just human
And I've thoughts like any other man
But sometimes I find myself alone regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

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

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

Oh Lord, don't let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be, don't let me be misunderstood

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

    Song MeaningOne of THE best songs about a man needing his woman to reconsider his foolishness from a time before. That is a part of love. The trick is to find someone that makes your time with more than compensate for ALL their flaws. Then you COULD forgive them for ANYTHING, whether you like it or not.

    General CommentKill Bill Vol. 1 is an awesome soundtrack. I think this song is an apology for something that he did to upset his "Sweet Esmeralda"

    General CommentIt must have been something awful, as he's apologizing for more than 10 minutes ;)

    Song MeaningBaby, 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

    Sounds like bipolar disorder
