Giovanni:
This is the boss and I'm sick of waiting!
I want Pikachu! And this time don't screw it up!

Prepare for trouble,
Make it double,

Prepare for trouble,
Make it double.
James: We'll be the richest rogues of all time.
Jessie: Creators of a grand design.
James: I'll be the king.
Jessie: I'll be the queen.
Meowth: I'll be the joker... of crime.

Prepare for trouble
Make it double
Jessie: Prepare for trouble.
James: Make it double.
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation.
James: To unite all people within our nation.
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love.
James: To extend our reach to the stars above.
Jessie: Jessie!
James: James!
Jessie: Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light.
James: Surrender now or prepare to fight.
Meowth: That's right!

Chorus:
Team Rocket's rockin,
Talkin' trouble, walkin' trouble,
Double trouble, big trouble's gonna follow you,

Team Rocket's rockin,
Talkin' trouble, walkin' trouble,
Double trouble, big trouble's gonna follow you,
Team Rocket: We're gonna capture Pikachu.

Prepare for trouble,
Make it double,
Jessie: Prepare for trouble
Prepare for trouble,
James: Make it double
Make it double,
Chorus & James:
We're Team Rocket and we fight for what's wrong
For mayhem and madness and rare Pokémon.
Jessie: I'm so gorgeous
James: I'm always the man

Chorus:
Team Rocket's rockin
Talkin' trouble, walkin' trouble
Double trouble, big trouble's gonna follow you

Team Rocket: We're gonna capture Pikachu

We're always gonna try it
No one can deny it
We can cause a riot in Sunday School
James: Ooh a riot!
We'll have you believing
Truth can be deceiving
Team Rocket: "Do unto others" is our Golden Rule

Jessie: This is our most ingenious plan ever, if I do say so myself.

Prepare for trouble
