We Understand Each Other

  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
