  • All the talk shows, you know, geniouses and experts
    Looking to lay some blame
    Some on the left and some on the right
    Playing that controversy game
    I'm not in a real cheery mood so I think I'll call them up
    And them em, why don't you play some blues
    And both sides shut up

    But do we just love trouble
    Ain't the world got enough
    Without y'all stirrin it up

    I am from the old school
    Cowboy hat, sure enough
    Too damn old to change horses now
    Cause I would probably fall off
    I'm a little whiskey bent and slowed my roll
    And if you ain't real sure about me
    Why don't you take it up with Gretchen and Tim
    Rockin Shawn Hannity

    But you just love trouble
    Ain't the world got enough
    Without y'all stirrin it up

    Back off

    So some celeb has teed y'all off
    Well, I get teed off too
    Why didn't you know that you're supposed
    To except our point of view
    I have learned at the school of hard knocks
    Things change quite a bit
    Folks get all jacked up
    I don't really give a ... darn

    I got a little child and a fishing pole
    A can of worms and a boat
    I'm goin down to the river now
    And let all my problems float
    Yeah, I've mellowed a lot
    And I don't jump into things like I used to
    Hey, what'd you say
    Why, you son of a gun
    Now see what you made me do

    I don't want no trouble
    Ain't the world got enough
    Without y'all stirrin it up

    Stirrin it up

    Let the pot simmer (stirrin it up)
    Let the dust settle (stirrin it up)
    Let's try and get along
    And it'll be more better
    (Stirrin it, stirrin it, stirrin it up)
    (Stirrin it up) sick em, Rush
    (Stirrin it up) jump in there, Bill
    Stir it up, Shawn
    (Stirrin it up)
    (Stirrin it up)
