I got troubles, you got troubles
All God's children got troubles
Livin' in bad water, (bad water)
(Tryin' to roll all over me)
(Bad water, bad water ooooh)
(Tell me why won't you set me free)
You know I'm tryin' to make it
But it's so hard to take it
I don't mind tellin' you
Well, I don't mind tellin' you
Taxes are overated
My money's disentergrated
And, right now, I'm just goin' through
Nothin' but, bad water, bad water
Tryin' to roll all over me, oooh
(Bad water, bad water ooooh)
Tell me why won't you set me free
I need some consolation
To ease my situtation
You know, the confusion just won't stop
I find myself alone
With the shoes that I have on
I'm all wet, from bottom to top
I'm walkin' through, bad water, (bad water)
Tryin' to roll all over me, help me
(Bad water, bad water ooooh)
Tell me why won't you set me free
We started this decision
To find a quick prevention
Why don't ya'll lend a helping hand
Instead of shoutin' and screamin'
Let's plan instead of dreamin'
So the world will understand
Oh, stop with this bad water, (bad water)
Tryin' to roll all over me, I'll fix it
(Bad water, bad water ooooh)
Tell me why won't you set me free
Oh, let's stop and fish
(Bad water, bad water)
Fade (Tryin' to roll all over me
