lyrics

When I was young and stupid
Trying to grow a brain
Trouble came pouring down on me
Just like a shower of rain
But now that I’m old and stupid
Strange to say
Trouble just shakes its head
And walks away

Max maxed out his visa
Sonya overstayed hers
Charlie’s truck
Was plain bad luck
Eddies was even worse
My pal dale
Has a brother in jail
Johnny lost his front door key
Dory and Doris
Just got a divorce
Everyone’s in trouble but me

What did I do to stay out of trouble
Nothing that’s what I did
While everybody else
Went looking for trouble
When trouble came knocking
I ran and hid

Annie had a baby
Fido got rabies
Fluffy got stuck in a tree
Sweet Beatrix
Got doxed by her ex
Everyone’s in trouble but me
What did I do to stay out of trouble?
Trouble never left me alone
While everybody else
Was asking for trouble
When trouble came calling
I hung up the phone

Vicky got evicted
Dickie got addicted
Tonto got a wounded knee
Poor old Gus
Walked in front of a bus
Everyone’s in trouble but me

Don’t know how I do it
But I always muddle through it
Don’t know how I swing it
But I always seem to wing it
Don’t know how I pull it
But I always dodge the bullet
Everyone’s in trouble
I’m living in a bubble
Everyone’s in trouble but me
