Don't Get It (Misunderstood) Lyrics
Baby understand me now
If sometimes you see that I'm mad
Don't you know no one alive can always be an angel
When everything goes wrong, you see some bad
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
O lord please don't let me be misunderstood

Misunderstood ain't gotta be explained
But you don't understand me so let me explain
Stood in the heat, the flames, the snow
Please slow down hurricane
The wind blow, my dreads swang
He had hair like wool, like wayne
Dropping ashes in the bible
I shake em out and they fall on the rifle
Scary, hail mary no tale fairy
All real very, extraordinary
Perry mason facing, the barrel if he tattle
My God is my judge, no gown no gavel
A hound, a rebel, down to battle
Now or never, I would never, in the ever
F*cking fantastic, f*ck if you agree
I'm bright but I don't give a f*ck if you see me

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
O lord please don't let me be misunderstood

What's understood ain't gotta be explained
So for those who understand meet Dwayne
For 8 and a half months I gave ms. cit da pain
Now it's young money baby, keep the change
My mama say f*ck em and we the same
So hello mothaf*cka you got some sheets to change
And ain't it funny how people change like easter sunday
You know church fit then outfit,
Bright pink and green chest look house lit
Bright pinky rings but that ain't about this
What you bout bitch
Excuse my french emotion in my passion
But I wear my heart on my sleeve like it's the new fashion
What are you asking, if I don't have the answer
It's probably on the web, like I'm a damn tarantula
But I know you don't understand, cause you thought lil wayne is weezy
But Weezy is Wayne

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
O lord please don't let me be misunderstood

I was watching t.v. the other day right
Got this white guy up there talking about black guys
Talking about how young black guys are targeted
Targeted by who? america
You see one in every 100 americans are locked up
One in every 9 black americans are locked up
And see what the white guy was trying to stress was that
The money we spend on sending a mothaf*cka to jail
A young mothaf*cka to jail
Would be less to send his or her young ass to college
See, and another thing the white guy was stressing was that
Our jails are populated with drug dealers, you know crack/cocaine stuff like that
Meaning due to the laws we have on crack/cocaine and regular cocaine
Police are only, I don't say only right, but shit
Only logic by riding around in the hood all day
And not in the suburbs
Because crack cocaine is mostly found in the hood
And you know the other thing is mostly found in you know where I'm going
But why bring a mothaf*cka to jail if it's not gon stand up in court
Cause this drug ain't that drug, you know level 3, level 4 drug, shit like that
I guess it's all a misunderstanding
I sit back and think, well shit us young muthaf*ckas, you know that 1 in 9
We probably only selling the crack cocaine because we in the hood
And it's not like in the suburbs, we don't have what you have
Why? I really don't wanna know the answer
I guess we just misunderstood huh
You know we don't have room in the jail now for the real mothaf*ckas, the real criminals
WRONG: Sex offenders, rapists serial killers
RIGHT: Sex offenders, rapists, serial killers, shit like that
Don't get scared, don't get scared

I know you saw one of them sex offenders papers
Don't trip, he live right on the end of your block, um hum
Yea that nigga live right down the street from you
Sex offender, on the level 3 drug, convicted, ex con, yea, check him out
And what you got? You got a daughter, son, what you got?
Yea, but you know what, you know what
I have a f*cking daughter you understand me,
And why the f*ck would you bring my neighbor to jail
Just because the reason why he live next door to me
Ain't the reason why I live next door to him
Meaning, he didn't rap his way to my f*cking neighborhood
He sold crack/cocaine to get to my neighborhood
You move him out, bring him to jail for life,
And then you move in the sex offender
They give me a paper
Is that a misunderstanding cause I don't understand it
Another thing, let me take my glasses off
Because I wanna see the reaction on the faces when I say this
Uh, mr al sharpton
Heres why I don't respect you, and nobody likes you
See, your the type that's gets off on getting on other people
That's not good, no homo
And rather unhuman I should say
I mean, given the fact that humanity, well good humanity rather, to me
Is helping one another no matter your color or race
But this guy, and people like him
They rather speculate before they informate, if that's a word
You know spec before check
Anyway, id much rather you talk to me first
And see if you can lend an opinion before you make one
Just my thought of good humanity mr sharpton
Hold on, I ain't finished with you man
I gotta pluck the ashes, hold on
Um, mr sharpton, and anyone like you
You don't know me so if your not gonna try to
Then what you say or think about me or what I do
Is totally casper the friendly ghost to me
And it doesnt make you a good person to criticize before you improvise
Doesnt necessarily make you a bad person either but
The characteristics fall heavenly into bads way
But since I am human, I am good and bad as well
But I try my hardest to stay good
And some of the things I do and say may be bad or just not too good but I do try
So with that said, I don't fault you
I mean your only human, good or bad
But I also don't respect you and I don't care if that's good or bad
You see, you are no MLK, you are no Jessie Jackson, your a nobody, to me
Your just another don king, with a perm
Just a little more political, and that just mean your a little unhuman than us humans
And now let me be a human by saying f*ck al sharpton and anyone like him
F*ck if you understand me I love being misunderstood
Why? cause I live in the suburbs but I grew up in the hood
Bring the hook in

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
O lord please don't let me be misunderstood
