Pete Seeger Lyrics

Trouble At The Bottom Lyrics
Some say the trouble's in the Pentagon
Some say the trouble's in the street
Some say the president's a paragon
Where's the trouble at the bottom?

Some say the trouble's the anatomy
Some say the trouble's in the head
Some say the trouble's the psychology
Where's the trouble at the bottom?

[Chorus:]
Trouble, trouble, where's the trouble,
Oh mama, where's the trouble,
Got a headache, seeing double,
Where's the trouble at the bottom?
Trouble, trouble, where's the trouble,
Oh mama, where's the trouble,
Got a headache, seeing double,
Where's the trouble at the bottom?

Some say the trouble's with the principal
Some say the trouble's with the kids
Some say the trouble's the curriculum
Where's the trouble at the bottom?

Some say the trouble's in the textbook
Some say the trouble's the class
Over all the school board fugging up
Where's the trouble at the bottom?

[Chorus]

Some say the trouble's in the family
Some say the trouble's on the job
I say whatever the analogy,
Find the trouble at the bottom.

Some say the trouble's with the system
Some say the trouble's in the class
Karl said the trouble is the upper one,
That is the upper, not the bottom.

[Chorus]
