    Tried to get a job today but
    When dem see the application dem say
    If this is really where you reside
    Please step outside
    She asked them why
    And they replied…

    [chorus]
    We don’t want no trouble
    We don’t want no trouble, no day
    Cause lady where you come from
    People die there everyday
    For our safety that’s where you should stay

    [verse 2]
    She traded in her three-piece for two
    Everything and anything she wanted to do
    Went back to her side of town
    In bed she lay down
    All she could hear was…

    [chorus]
    We don’t want no trouble
    We don’t want no trouble, no day
    Cause lady where you come from
    People die there everyday
    For our safety that’s where you should stay

    [bridge]
    It’s easier to give into the pressures of life
    It’s harder to get over when you try to do right
    Just stay focused and keep your goals in site

    [verse 3]
    Been through school, passed every test
    Graduated above the rest
    And yet the society still looks down
    They do this, why?
    They don’t want us to try
    And so they’ll reply…

    [chorus]
    We don’t want no trouble
    We don’t want no trouble, no day
    Cause lady where you come from
    People die there everyday
    For our safety that’s where you should stay

    [repeat chorus]
