Lyrics
She wanted the money
The fame
The brand names
And fancy cars

She left a hard working man behind
For a fellow with a championship ring
See here's the thing
About dating a superstar

She was one of like eight or nine
Just another ball players play thing
And I'm singing

What's the matter with you baby
What's the matter with you baby
What's the matter with you
Say ain't that your dream come true

What's the matter with you baby
What's the matter with you baby
What's the matter with you, you
Say ain't that your dream come true

What's the matter with you 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
The fame
The brand names
And fancy cars

Looking up to the pushing man
He wanted to be like them oh so bad
One hell of a price to pay if you get caught
See that's the party didn't understand
Now we sitting in a prison cell ahh man

[Chorus]

What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you
Say ain't that your dream come true

What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you
You

Say ain't that your dream come true
What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you fella
What's the matter with you

All the ladies like the bad boy
So you go and get a bad boy
And he treats you bad
And u act surprised

Be careful what you ask for
You got what you ask for
Tell me why you're mad
Tell me why you're mad

We keep complaining bout we won?t change
But half of us don't do a thing
So everything stays the same
And I?m asking

[Chorus]

What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you
You can't make our dreams come true

What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you
Can't make our dreams come true

What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you
Can't make our dreams come true

What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you tell me
What's the matter with you
