 Wow, I'd say his troubles out-weigh most
  

Lyrics:

 ^ So you think you've got troubles, the more you try the worse you get
So you think the world don't like you, well, brother you ain't heard nothing yet

Well, my car sounds like an old tin can, my wife went off with another man
And I strained a muscle of my fishing hand, my income tax is due
Now I lost my money in a poker game, and I think my left leg is a-goin' lame
My brother asked if I'd change my name, and that's what I think I'll do

My doctor told me not to smoke, drink nothing stronger than a coke
I'm not even supposed to hear dirty jokes, for I'd laugh and strain my heart
I had every ailment known to man, from the African mumps to a dishpan hand
I lost every race that I ever ran, I didn't even get a start

So you think you've got troubles, the more you try the worse you get
So you think the world don't like you, well, brother you ain't heard nothing yet

Now some people call me a pessimist, they say that I oughta make the best of this
Well, maybe I am a pessimist, that's something that I wouldn't know
But one thing I do know I'll tell you right now, I'm a-milking the wrong end of this old cow
There's too many wrinkles in this boy's brow, that stuff has got to go

So you think you've got troubles, the more you try the worse you get
So you think the world don't like you, well, brother you ain't heard nothing yet

So I put me a bar in the back of my car and drive myself to drink
