Trouble -
You give me trouble all the time.
Trouble - Oh, I got a worried mind.
You tell me I'm your only one,
But I believe any minute you could be gone.

You give me heart ache, trouble and lies.
Baby, Baby, Baby, I don't understand why.
I miss you when we're apart,
But when we're together you just break my heart.

You give me trouble - trouble and doubt.
Trouble - Oh, how we gonna work it out?
You know after all I've tried
Sometimes it looks like you don't want to be satisfied.

What more can I give you, Baby?
You got everything I had.
When I ask for a little bit,
You haul off and get mad.

Well, I know that you love me, Baby
Or you wouldn't want to hurt me so bad.
Still, I keep on tryin' to please you.
That is so sad.

You come home in the morning.
And I ask you where you been.
You say I'm trying to start something,
And you walk out the door again.

Yeah, that's trouble - all the time
You give me trouble, and a worried mind.
Trouble; nothing but trouble.
You give me trouble.
