What's The Matter Baby ? Lyrics

by Dire Straits

There's a shadow hanging over the valley
A total eclipse of the moon
Closing up the gates of the city
The wind it plays a wild tune

Don't you put a lock on your window
Don't you put the bar on your door
Don't you cry for the rain in the sky
You've seen the storm before

Yeah, now what's the matter with you, baby?
Baby, what's the matter now?
What's the matter, you're running in the shadows
Every time you hear the wild man yell?

Come on, tell me what's the matter with you, baby?
Baby, what's the matter now?
What's the matter, you're running in the shadows
Every time you hear the wild man yell?

Then lightning going to strike at midnight
Thunder going to shake the ground
Don't you flinch, don't give a inch
Just a let the flood come down

Come, tell me, what's the matter with you, baby?
Baby, what's the matter now?
Tell me what's the matter, you're running in the shadows
Every time you hear the wild man?

Come on, tell me what's the matter with you, baby?
Baby, what's the matter now?
What's the matter you're running in the shadows
Every time you hear the wild man yell?
