"If You've Got Trouble" is a song written by Lennon/McCartney and recorded by The Beatles on 18 February 1965 with Ringo Starr singing the lead vocal. The song was intended to be Starr's vocal appearance on the Help! album and the Help! film, but the Beatles were not happy with the recording and later chose "Act Naturally" (which is not in the film) instead. "If You've Got Trouble" remained unreleased until Anthology 2 in 1996.
"If You've Got Trouble" was recorded on 18 February 1965, the fourth day of recording for Help!. It was one of three songs worked on that day, the others being "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and "Tell Me What You See". The main part of the song was done in a single take, followed by overdubs for lead and backing vocals.
Music critic Ian MacDonald said the song was "the only unmitigated disaster in the Lennon-McCartney catalogue", and criticised its lyrics and melody. Beatles' historian Mark Lewisohn agreed, saying it was "not one of the better Lennon-McCartney numbers ... nor was it brilliantly performed."
