Lyrics

troublemaker, whatcha gonna tell 'em when you come back
    whatcha gonna tell 'em when they ask where you've been
    whatcha gonna have to say for yourself

    never gonna let 'em see your true face,
    stick it in a box and put it on your shelf

you got a three-piece suit and a one-piece hair piece
    makin' everybody in the gutter feel like slime

    wake up, mr. troublemaker,
    now your ass is mine

        troublemaker, try and make a little trouble with me
        troublemaker, gonna send you back to tennessee

troublemaker, make your mind, make a dime anytime
    put it in your wallet while you take one from mine

double what you see with your open eyes, hope it dies
    smoking all the money with your eyes to the sky

        troublemaker, try and make a little trouble with me
        troublemaker, gonna send you back to tennessee
        troublemaker, try and make a little trouble with me

troublemaker, take a break, piece of cake, lie awake
    think of all the people that you've broken today

stubble on your cheekbones, chewing on the meatbones
    fatter than a cattle and you're mad enough to battle
    but i recommend that you just stay away

        troublemaker, try and make a little trouble with me
        troublemaker, gonna send your ass to tennessee
        troublemaker, try and make a little trouble with me
        troublemaker, gonna diss you in my mp3
