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 feel real 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 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

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

Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good

Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good

Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

Yes, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
