TOMMY TROUBLE
 
div
 
Folks say you should never meet trouble half way
And there's sound common sense in that view
But when you are blessed with a name that's like mine
You meet trouble all the day through
If the Sun shines I see trouble ahead
In the shadow that's cast on the ground
With trouble I go to my bed and I rise
With trouble when morning comes round

Chorus: I'm Tommy Trouble. Everyone calls me trouble
If I lost a tanner you'd think by my manner
I'd lost double. Everyone calls me trouble
And the people all shout when they see me walk out
Here comes trouble.


I went to a boxing booth on Hampstead Heath
And trouble of course went with me
A man said he'd give me ten bob if I could
Beat Ginger Joe from Battersea
I wanted ten bob so I walked in the ring
Put my hands up and said very brave
When Ginger cried to me, 'In case I kill you
What shall we put on the grave?'

Chorus: I'm Tommy Trouble. Everyone calls me trouble
If I lost a tanner you'd think by my manner
I'd lost double. Everyone calls me trouble
Then I cried with surprise as he closed both my eyes
Here comes trouble.
