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]

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]
