Please Do Not 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 seem to feel bad.
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
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 I've done
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 its problems
And I get my share
And that's one thing I never mean to do
'Cause I love you
Oh, Oh, oh, oh, baby - don't you know I'm human
I have thoughts like any other one
And 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.

The Psychoed

"As I was going up the stair,
I met a man who was not there,
he wasn't there again today,
I wish that man would go away."

It is written by Hugh Mearns who was born in 1899. It is a nursery rhyme and listed in "The New Oxford Book of Children's Verse" as being titled "The Little Man". However, the poem also has been printed with the alternative titles of both "Antigonish", under which it was printed in the sci-fi anthology "World in Small", and "The Psychoed".
