He'd drive a mint green van and watch the Mexicans scatter
Be the first to admit he thought it was funny as hell
Now he's taken to flippin' off hippies at the river
Yeah, I never really liked him but I would never tell

Then again, I never did understand me
But then again, I never did understand me

I have bitten my tongue 'til I can taste the blood
And I scream 'uncle' when you twist my arm
I could say I was just too young
But I haven't yet learned to trust my bleeding heart

But then again, I never did understand me
But then again, I never did understand me

And just to keep the peace and quiet
I'd forfeit my peace of mind
Then again, I never did understand me

Come for me and I'll be your canary
And stay 'til then end when it's bad for my health
Yeah, I can can forgive every Tom, d**k, or Harry
But when it comes down to me
I can't forgive myself

But then again, I never did understand me
But then again, I never did understand me

Just to keep the peace and quiet
I'd forfeit my peace of mind
Then again, I never did understand me

I lift myself up for you to wear me down
And I do it every day as crazy as it seems
It's such a little thing like when I catch my reflection
I think, 'Girl don't you know you shouldn't wear those jeans? '

But then again, I never did understand me
But then again, I never did understand me

And just to keep the peace and quiet
I'd forfeit my peace of mind
Then again, I never did understand...
But then again, I never did understand...
But then again, I never did understand me

But then again, I never did understand me
