We understand each other
Bull!
You hear some distant drummer play
I think we understand each other
Have you no else to offer?
Poor boy!
I have expenses to defray
I hope we understand each other
We have a problem
Yes, but it's not that we
Don't understand each other

Oh brother!
When they say "understand"
They gotta mean fairyland
For twenty tons of silver
She sold him into stir
And when it gets his freedom back
He throws it away over her
When he says "understand"
He must mean some other girl

I'll never comprehend
My putrid taste in men
It's not fair I love
Each little hair and he
Don't even care about me
When she says "understand"
Must mean some other man

Our preconceptions to retain
We're obliged to exclaim
We understand each other

We hear some distant drummer play
Must mean we understand each other
Oh brother!

If there's a problem
We'll admit it
Not that we don't understand each other
Each other

When they say "understand"
It's like Wendy and Peter Pan
Have you ever met somebody
More self-involved than he?
This has got to be a miracle
The man has divine empathy

What could be wrong with me?
I know his repartee
Insincere
He's down
There, I'm up here
But whenever he's near

It's some kind of divine empathy
When they say "understand"
Smells like something else to me
We're talking sleight of hand
Each other's mind
We read so well
We have no time to know ourselves
We understand each other

Though we don't even know ourselves
We think we understand each other
Though we don't even know ourselves
We think we understand each other
Though we don't know ourselves
I hope we understand each other
Each other
