When ‘he’ mis-understands, understanding’s a sin;
A fight to ‘understanding’ and a ‘submission’ to ‘acceptance’;
Understanding’s the humility between the two.

Understanding’s so gentle, it’s the mercy;
Understanding’s a love, it’s an attachment;
Understanding’s the gentleness, it’s the approach;
Understanding’s so sensitive, it’s the charity;
Understanding’s a promise, it’s the vow;
Hold within those ‘misunderstanding’ I pledge;
Makes ‘me’ no’ deference, makes no conflict;
Understanding’s a bonding between the two.

Ah! He shouts and he frightens a soul;
Makes ‘him’ more energetic, still confusing;
Understanding a fondness, it’s an intuition;
He never knew what he’s up to, delivering speeches;
He takes and he talks thousands and thousands;
‘Believing’ and ‘impression’ all gone murky;
‘Understanding’s the misunderstanding so conflicting;
He won and I lost; confusing and all mix-up;
Understanding‘s an agreement, it’s the gentleman’s agreement;
Fancy and decorate himself, so tough I elaborate much;
Oh! Man disagreeing and alternating and falling out;
 Mis understanding a mis conception, it’s the mistake;
Understanding’s the intelligence, the ability of the two.
