Never Gave Nobody Trouble lyrics

Couldn't pay the mortgage
And it broke my baby's heart
I couldn't pay the mortgage
It broke my baby's heart
I never gave nobody trouble,
But it ain't too late to start!

Don't wanna break no window,
Don't wanna burn no car
Don't wanna break no window,
And I don't wanna burn your car

You got the right to all riches,
But you let it go too far!

You sail the mighty ocean
On a yacht designed for you
You sail the mighty ocean
On a yacht designed for you!
Yeah, I bet the ocean fake what's garbage
You ain't gonna make it through

[guitar solo]

I never gave nobody trouble,
I'm alone, an ordinary man
I never gave nobody trouble,
I'm alone, an ordinary man
I never gave nobody trouble,
But you know god damn well that I can!
