I woke up this morning and I fell out of bed
Trouble waiting to happen
Should've quit while I was ahead
Trouble waiting to happen

I turned on the news to the Third World War
Opened up the paper to World War IV
Just when I thought it was safe to be bored
Trouble waiting to happen, trouble waiting to happen

The mailman brought me the Rolling Stone
Trouble waiting to happen
It said I was living at home alone
Trouble waiting to happen

I read things I didn't know I'd done
It sounded like a lot of fun
Well, I guess I've been bad or something
Trouble waiting to happen, trouble waiting to happen

Trouble waiting to happen, teardrops ready to start
Trouble waiting to happen to my heart

This just ain't gonna be my day
Trouble waiting to happen
Things just ain't gonna go my way
Trouble waiting to happen

My day was over by a quarter to ten
I climbed right back into bed again
I'd write this down if I could hold a pen
I might get better but I don't know when
So I'm gonna wait right here 'til then
Trouble waiting to happen, trouble waiting to happen

Trouble waiting to happen, teardrops ready to fall
Trouble waiting to happen to us all, trouble waiting to happen
Trouble waiting to happen, trouble waiting to happen
Trouble waiting to happen
