Attic Insulation

Recently bought a home and had a question about the attic insulation. It is pink fiberglass with a brown paper on one side. The paper is on the top side. Thus the fiberglass is between the paper and the ceiling below.

Am I correct in that this is backwards from what it should be? From what I have read it sounds like the paper, which acts as the vapor barrier should be on the bottom touching the ceiling and the fiberglass about that.

Thanks for any comments.

The paper is the vapor barrier and generally goes between the living space and the insulation.

Thanks, I guess I'll have to flip it all over.
