Lyrics:
Wish I had a nickle
Wish I had a dime
Wish I had me a pretty girl
To hold and call her mine!

Don’t get trouble on your mind!

If you see that gal o’ mine
You make sure that you tell her
If she don’t like my way o’ doing
She can get some other feller!

Don’t get trouble in your mind!

If you see that gal of mine
You tell her if you can
Before she goes, to make my bread
And wash her nasty hands!

Don’t get trouble in your mind

Trouble, trouble!
Trouble in my mind!
If trouble don’t kill me
I’m sure I’ll never die!

Don’t get trouble in your mind!
