"Bad Water" as written by Randy Myers, Jimmy Holiday and Jackie De Shannon....
I got troubles, you got troubles
All God's children got troubles
Livin' in bad water (Bad water)
(Tryin' to roll all over me)
(Bad water, bad water, oh)
(Tell me why won't you set me free)

You know I'm tryin' to make it
But it's so hard to take it
I don't mind tellin' you
Well, I don't mind tellin' you
Taxes are overated
My money's disintegrated
And, right now, I'm just goin' through
Nothin' but bad water, bad water
Tryin' to roll all over me, oh
(Bad water, bad water, oh)
Tell me why won't you set me free

I need some consolation
To ease my situtation
You know, the confusion just won't stop
I find myself alone
With the shoes that I have on
I'm all wet, from bottom to top
I'm walkin' through bad water (Bad water)
Tryin' to roll all over me
Help me
(Bad water, bad water, oh)
Tell me why won't you set me free

We started this decision
To find a quick prevention
Why don't y'all lend a helping hand
Instead of shoutin' and screamin'?
Let's plan instead of dreamin'
So the world will understand
Oh, stop with this bad water (Bad water)
Tryin' to roll all over me
I'll fix it
(Bad water, bad water, oh)
Tell me why won't you set me free
Oh, let's stop and fish
(Bad water, bad water)
(Tryin' to roll all over me)
