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 got a good thing going 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 Waiting round the corner And I don't care how Much that woman loves me She's gonna go out and find herself One of them who will And that's why I believe that Understanding is the Best thing in the world Yes, it is, yes, it is Between a boy and a girl Boy and girl and What about a woman or a man It can be so much better It's always better when You really understand 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 her And call her a bunch of bad names Like you all might, no, mmm mm What I'm gonna do I'm gonna go downtown To the hardware store and Buy myself a double blade axe handle Come back, square off And believe her soul's gonna Belong to the good Lord Because her head gonna belong to me And I guarantee she'll know What I mean when I say Understanding is the Best thing in the world Say it again, say it again Between a boy and girl Boy and girl and even A woman or a man It's always better when You really understand Understanding is the Best thing in the world Say it again, say it again now
