Welcome to a pin stripe paradise
stocking up the market
buying just nothing
but they move and talk it
bodies in the right race
headers in the head lace
money won't buy them
a happy or a glad face

Look at their suits
look at their computers
so many do so little
for so few does a tutor
big briefcase big cat
there never was nothing
in any of that

Just like New York City
no it ain't what you think
millions of people
spend too long with the shrink
down in the jungle
but it's moving in the street
no none of them is older
than a just two-feet

And old King Kong
was no monster at all
just a regulate chimp
in fact very small
big apple big lie
must be the world's worst alibi

'cause the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (there ain't nothing underneath boy)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble (ooh nothing underneath boy)

You know their make-up was made up
to be only skin-deep
a silicon-valley's from their heads to their feet
passions and fashion but we're wearing it out
and it makes you kinda wonder
what loving's all about

She's into skinny dipping
and a single at result
can my mind start flipping
when the honey meets milk
a big promise a big time
she kept me hanging on the last line

'cause the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (there ain't nothing underneath boy)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (ooh nothing underneath boy)

We gonna break the service tention
and take a look below
we gotta hit a new dimension
by going with the flow

We gonna break the service tention
and take a look below
we gotta hit a new dimension
by going by going with the flow

The trouble is (trouble is)
the trouble is (trouble is)
the trouble is (there ain't nothing underneath boy)
the trouble is (trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (ooh nothing underneath boy)

You know trouble is (trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (there ain't nothing underneath boy)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (ooh nothing underneath boy)

'cause the trouble is (trouble is)
the trouble is (the trouble is)
the trouble is (there ain't nothing underneath boy)
