Mothers Of Invention - Trouble Every Day Lyrics

  • Well I'm about to get upset
  • From watchin' my TV
  • Been checkin' out the news
  • Until my eyeballs fail to see
  • I mean they say that every day
  • Is just another rotten mess
  • And when it's gonna change, my friends
  • Is anybody's guess
  • So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
  • Hopin' for the best
  • Even think I'll go to prayin'
  • Every time I hear 'em sayin'
  • That there's no way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • No way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • Wednesday I watched the riot...
  • I seen the cops out on the street
  • Watched 'em throwin' rocks and stuff
  • And chokin' in the heat
  • Listened to reports
  • About the whisky passin' 'round
  • Seen the smoke & fire
  • And the market burnin' down
  • Watched while everybody
  • On his street would take a turn
  • To stomp and smash and bash and crash
  • And slash and bust and burn
  • And I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
  • Hopin' for the best
  • Even think I'll go to prayin'
  • Every time I hear 'em sayin'
  • That there's no way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • No way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • Well you can cool it,
  • You can heat it...
  • 'Cause, baby, I don't need it...
  • Take your TV tube and eat it
  • 'N all that phony stuff on sports
  • 'N all those unconfirmed reports
  • You know I watched that rotten box
  • Until my head began to hurt
  • From checkin' out the way
  • The newsmen say they get the dirt
  • Before the guys on channel so-and-so
  • And further they assert
  • That any show they'll interrupt
  • To bring you news if it comes up
  • They say that if the place blows up
  • They'll be the first to tell
  • Because the boys they got downtown
  • Are workin' hard and doin' swell,
  • And if anybody gets the news
  • Before it hits the street,
  • They say that no one blabs it faster
  • Their coverage can't be beat
  • And if another woman driver
  • Gets machine-gunned from her seat
  • They'll send some joker with a brownie
  • And you'll see it all complete
  • So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
  • Hopin' for the best
  • Even think I'll go to prayin'
  • Every time I hear 'em sayin'
  • That there's no way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • No way to delay
  • That trouble comin' every day
  • Hey you know something people
  • I'm not black
  • But there's a whole lots a times
  • I wish I could say I'm not white
  • Well, I seen the fires burnin'
  • And the local people turnin'
  • On the merchants and the shops
  • Who used to sell their brooms and mops
  • And every other household item
  • Watched the mob just turn and bite 'em
  • And they say it served 'em right
  • Because a few of them are white,
  • And it's the same across the nation
  • Black & white discrimination
  • They're yellin' "You can't understand me!"
  • And all the other crap they hand me
  • In the papers and TV
  • 'N all that mass stupidity
  • That seems to grow more every day
  • Each time you hear some nitwit say
  • He wants to go and do you in
  • Because the color of your skin
  • Just don't appeal to him
  • (No matter if it's black or white)
  • Because he's out for blood tonight
  • You know we gotta sit around at home
  • And watch this thing begin
  • But I bet there won't be many left
  • To see it really end
  • 'Cause the fire in the street
  • Ain't like the fire in my heart
  • And in the eyes of all these people
  • Don't you know that this could start
  • On any street in any town
  • In any state if any clown
  • Decides that now's the time to fight
  • For some ideal he thinks is right
  • And if a million more agree
  • There ain't no great society
  • As it applies to you and me
  • Our country isn't free
  • And the law refuses to see
  • If all that you can ever be
  • Is just a lousy janitor
  • Unless your uncle owns a store
  • You know that five in every four
  • Won't amount to nothin' more
  • Than watch the rats go across the floor
  • And make up songs about being poor
  • Blow you harmonica son!
