Santa Esmeralda – Don’t let me be misunderstood

by

Baby, do you understand 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

‘Cause 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 meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I’ve got my share
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 got thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I feel myself, oh lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I’ve done

‘Cause I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

Oh lord, don’t you let me be misunderstood
Don’t let me be
Don’t let me be misunderstood
No, no, no, no, no…

[Instrumental]

Ohh…
Come to me baby
Esmeralda…
Ah, come on baby
You’re so sweet
Mighty sweet
Come around me babe
Come around me, I love ya
Oh don’t play with me baby
Come on, talk to me
Esmeralda
Oh baby
Oh please
Oh lord pleeaase babe
My sweet Esmeralda

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

‘Cause 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

‘Cause 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 meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I’ve got my share
That’s one thing I never meant to do
‘Cause I love you

Oh baby, don’t you know I’m human
I have thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I feel myself, oh lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I’ve done

‘Cause I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
