  • I see that worried look upon your face
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine
    She's found somebody else to take your place
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine

    I too have lost my love today
    All of my dreams have flown away

    Now just like you, I sit and wonder why
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine
    You need some sympathy, well so do I
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine

    She used to love me, that I know
    And it don't seem so long ago

    That we were walking
    And we were talking
    The way that lovers do

    I too have lost my love today
    All of my dreams have flown away

    And so forgive me if I seem unkind (I ain't got no pity for you)
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine (I lost, I lost, I lost my little girl
    I'd help another place, another time
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine

    You've got your troubles, I've got mine
    You've got your troubles, I've got mine. Writer/s: ROGER COOK, ROGER GREENAWAY

  • AnonymousRe The Fortunes, played support for them at the 101 Club RAF Abingdon in1967 and at the Gosforth Park Hotel, Newcastle on Tyne in 1971.
    A great band that went on for decades, I count several of their members, past, present and passed away, as my friends. Brian Whittle.
  • Robsdad27 from Brooklyn NyIt seems to have escaped most commenters that its Roy Orbison guesting on this recording "So forgive me if I say that I aint got no pity for you...Etc Listen for it, cause its all Orbison joining the talents of t\The Fortunes
  • Steve from Northampton EnglandI attended a music copyright conference in 1984, where Roger Greenaway was guest speaker. He explained where he got the inspiration for this song. In the early sixties, he was late for an appointment and urged his taxi driver to make haste through the London traffic. The taxi driver responded with the line 'You've got your troubles mate, I've got mine.'
  • Anton from EarthI believe the counter lyric toward the end of the song is:

    And it must seem to you, my friend
    That I ain't got no pity for you,
    Well, that ain't true,
    You see I lost my lost my lost my little girl too

    That and the great harmonizing really made this song stand out back in the day. Still enjoy it, even after 40+ years.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn August 15th 1965, "You've Got Your Troubles" by the Fortunes entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #95; and on October 3rd, 1965 it peaked at #7 {for 1 week} and spent 11 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #2 on the United Kingdom Singles chart and spent 15 on the chart {was at #3 for 3 weeks before peaking at #2}
    Between 1965 and 1971 the British quintet had six Top 100 records; their next biggest hit was "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again", it peaked at #15 {for 1 week} on July 25th, 1971.
  • Sam Williams from Sherman Oaks, CaAbout that last songfact, the Beatles also got the idea of using horns in "Got To Get You Into My Life" to back them up from this song, (and the Outsider's Time Won't Let Me, although Revolver might have been recorded before that, I'm not 100% sure).
