(Verse 1)
Trouble is, you're always out drinkin' with your friends.
Trouble is, you expect me to pick up your loose ends.
Trouble is, you never call when you're away from home.
Trouble is, I'm always sittin' here alone.

(Verse 2)
Trouble is, you don't do what you say you will.
Trouble is, you're always looking for a thrill.
Trouble is, your excuse is pretty lame.
Trouble is, "Trouble" is your middle name.

You're just a loser with a capital "L".
Livin' with you is just a living hell.
Don't wanna hear another one of your lines.
My friends all tell me I'm just wastin' my time.

(Verse 3)
Trouble is, my mama was right.
Trouble is, I'm finally seeing the light.
Trouble is, I'm gettin' tired of this game.
Trouble is, "Trouble" is your middle name.

(Solo/Chorus/rpt Verse 3)

So why don't you go out and get you a real job, and make me some money?
My mama said you was no good.
I guess she was right.
