If you don't know me by now 
You'll never, never, never know me 
All the things that we've been through 
You should understand me 
Like I understand you 

Now baby I know the difference 
Between right and wrong 
I ain't gonna do nothin' 
To upset our happy home 

Oh, don't get so excited 
When I comee home a little late at night 
Cause we only act like children 
When we argue, fuss and fight 


We all got our own funny moods 
I've got mine 
Woman, you got yours too 
Just trust in me 

Like I trust in you 
As long as we've been together 
That should be so easy to do 
Just get yourself together 

Or we might as well say good-bye 
What good is a love affair 
When we can't see eye-to-eye
