I want the world to know (I want the world to know)
I want the world to know (I want the world to know)
Yeah! (yeah!) yeah! (yeah!) yeah! (yeah!)
That I (you!), that I (you!), that iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! (aaaaaaaaaaah, you!)
I confeh-heh-hess.

Mercy, mercy baby! I done you wrong.
Had my share of wine, women and song, want you back here in my arms,
My days are empty without you baby, wasted time turns into years,
My pillow is soakin' wet baby, with all my cryin' tears.

Built a home in detroit, cattle in texas,
Way up in the san francisco bay,
I got apartments in new orleans, skyscrapers in new york,
But if you're honest baby, you sound lonely, and I'm alone.

Matilda! (I don't believe she hears ya)
Matilda! (ya gotta call a little bit louder)
Matilda! (a just a little bit louder)
Matilda! (lord, a little bit louder)
Matilda! (I believe, she might hear ya now)
Matilda! (just say it again, now)
Matilda! (do it one more time!)
Matilda! (I believe she hears you)
Hey, hey, matilda! (whoa, a little bit louder!)
Matilda! (just a little bit louder now)
Matilda! (I believe she hears you now)
Matilda! (I believe she hears you now)
Matilda! (here she comes! here she comes!)
Matilda! (I believe she heard you now)
