What's wrong dear brother, have you lost your faith
Don't you remember a better place
Needles and things have done you in

Like the setting sun
Oh, dear brother, trouble weighs a ton

What's wrong dear sister, did your world fall down
Did men misuse you and push you around
It's the same story dear, year after year

Pathetic men run
Oh, dear sister, trouble weighs a ton

Trouble in the air, trouble's all I see
Does anybody care, trouble's killing me
Oh, it's killing me...

What's wrong dear mother, has your child disobeyed
And left you hurting in so many ways
What once was sweet, is sorrow and grief

That cannot be undone
Oh, dear mother, trouble weighs a ton
