Ray Charles — Understanding lyrics

Understanding* is the best thing in the world Between,
a boy and a girl Boy

and girl and even a woman or a man its, always Better
when you realy understand 1)

You know understanding is a mighty powerful thing That's,
why it makes me so sad When
I see my friends wandering aroung thru the world never
, knowing the meaning of the word Understanding
so, in the next few minutes I'm, gonna Try
to explain just exactly what it means Now
wait a minute listen, for, instance you, take me And
my old lady we, gotta good thing goin Because
I know If I don't work and pay the rent and the Bills
and buy her fine pretty clothes to wear well There,
are fifteen other guys just waitin round the Corner
and, I don't care how much that woman loves me she
, Gonna? go out and find herself one of them who Will
and that's why I believe that Repeat

* 2)

Now listen I don't want you to think that this is a One
sided affair no, no Because
my old lady also understands that a man must Have
respect What
I mean is if, she must play around don't let me Catch
her because, what I don't see can't hurt me you, Understand
But? on the other hand If, I should ever Catch
her I'm not gonna talk about-a And
call her a bunch of bad names like you all might No
no mh What
I'm gonna do I'm, gonna go down-town to the Hardware
store and buy myself a double blade axe Come,
back square, off and, believe her soul Gonna? Belong
to the good lord Because
her head Gonna? belong to me and, I Guarantie
she L? know what I mean when Ill say Repeat

* several times (fade).............
