Hey little darlin', what's got you down?
What's that turning your head around?
Is it the man in the street making all that noise?
Is it the man in your bedroom making plots and ploys?
I wanna be with you night and day, I wanna give you my protection in every way
But your love light's shining low, is your love light shining? I don't know

You may say that you're misunderstood
But your words, now they're made of Norwegian Wood
And I've been down that road before
And I tell you something darlin', I never would have opened up that door

Hey little darlin', what's that you say? What's that turning your head away?
Is it those things that they teach you at your school?
Is it those things that they tell you just ain't cool?

I told you once but you paid no mind
I'll tell you now and I'll tell you five more times
It doesn't matter what it's all about, just don't let your love light snuff right out

You may say that you're misunderstood
But your heart now is made of Norwegian Wood
And I've been down that road before
And I tell you something darlin', I never would have opened up that door

Hey little darlin', please don't cry
Keep your chin up, pointing towards the sky
I tried to care for you in every way but just ended up making you my ashtray
I told you I was leaving but you paid no mind
I'll tell you now, and I'll tell you one last time
I'm sorry that I let you down, just cover your love light when I come around

You may say that you're misunderstood
You know I'd try to help you if I thought I could
And I've been through that field before
And I tell you something darlin', I never would have opened up that door

Little darlin', I'm leaving you tonight
Little darlin', I'm leaving you, that's right
There is nothing you can do or say
I'm gonna leave you anyway

You may say that you're misunderstood
Oh, me being around you never did you no good
And I've been down that road before
And I tell you something darlin', I never would have opened up that door
