She wanted the money, Fame, Brand name, The fancy cars,
She left a hard workin' man behind for a fella with a championship brand,
Oh, But see here's the thing about datin' a superstar,
She was one of like eight or nine, Just another ball players play thang...

Oh, And I'm singing what's the matter with ya baby, What's the matter with you baby,
What's the matter with you? Oh, With you?
Said ain't that your dream come true?
What's the matter with ya baby, What's the matter with you baby, What's the matter with you?
No-one to blame but (You), No-one to blame but you, You, You.

He wanted the money, Fame, Brand Name, The fancy cars,
Lookin up to the pushy man, he wanted to be like him ooh so bad (Ooh oh so bad),
Well one hell of a price to pay if you get caught,
(Huh) See that's the part he didn't understand,
Now he's sittin' in a prison cell all mad...

(Hey) And I'm askin' what's the matter with ya fella, What's the matter with you fella,
What's the matter with you? (Hey) With you?
(Hey) Said ain't that your dream come true?
What's the matter with ya fella, What's the matter with you fella, What's the matter with you?
No-one to blame but, No-one to blame but you,

(Hey) All the ladies like a bad boy,
So you go and get a bad boy,
And he treats you bad,
(Hey) And you act suprised?
Be careful what you ask for,
You got what you asked for,
Tell me why you mad?
(Oh) Tell me why are you mad (Yeah, Yeah)?

We keep complainin' bout we want change,
But half of us don't do a thing,
So everything stays the same...

And I'm askin' what's the matter with ya tell me, What's the matter with you tell me, What's the matter with you?
(Hey) We can make our dreams come true,
What's the matter with ya tell me, What's the matter with you tell me, What's the matter with you (Hey, Yeah),
We can make our dreams come true,
What's the matter with ya tell me, What's the matter with you tell me, What's the matter with you?
(Yeah, Hey, Hey) We can make our dreams come true,
What's the matter with ya tell me, What's the matter with you tell me, What's the matter with you
