"You've Got Your Troubles" is a song written by Roger Greenaway and Roger Cook which became a number two hit for the Fortunes in the United Kingdom in July 1965,[2] and a number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States[3] in August 1965. It topped the charts in Canada, and peaked at number three in Ireland, and to this day remains the groups' most successful single. This was the fifth single for the group. It was included in the album The Fortunes.[1] Country duo Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan revived the song in 1970.

Tom Edwards, who was programme controller at the 1960s UK pirate radio station Radio City, stated that this record would be aired whenever the station's fort needed practical assistance from its base in Kent.

The song appeared on the soundtrack of Michael Apted's Stardust.
