If I Wouldn't Have Misunderstood

(Little did the children know, that coincidentally, Louetta had recently been fending off the advances of this same named dork they so earnestly were singing about...)

If I wouldn't have misunderstood...

I certainly would have had less anxiety.
I wouldn't have got so miffed.
I would have seen that her opinion about the issue is a lot closer to my own than I had thought.
I wouldn't have bad mouthed them.
I wouldn't have thought that he didn't like me much.
I wouldn't have spent much of the night lying awake thinking about it.
I wouldn't have exerted so much mental energy plotting a response.
I wouldn't have got all in knots about it for nothing.

That's the way it would have been
if I wouldn't have misunderstood.
