Understanding (Ray Charles)

* 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 , thats 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, Im 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 dont 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 dont care how much that woman loves me , she? gonna go out and find herself one of them who will and thats why I believe that * repeat 2) Now listen I dont 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 dont let me catch her , because what I dont see cant hurt me , you understand? but on the other hand , If I should ever catch her Im not gonna talk about-a and call her a bunch of bad names like you all might no no mh what Im gonna do , Im 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 .............
