Mathilde
Scott Walker Lyrics


Mama, do you see what I see
On your knees and pray for me
Mathilde's come back to me
Charley, don't want another beer
Tonight I'm gonna drink my tears
Mathilde's come back to me
Go ask the maid if she heard what I said
Tell her to change the sheets on the bed
Mathilde's come back to me
Fellas, don't leave me tonight
Tonight I'm going back to fight
Wretched Mathilde's in sight

My heart, my heart, stop beating so
Just make as if you didn't know
That Mathilde's come back to me
My heart, I don't want you to say
She's lovelier than when she went away
Mathilde, who's come back to me
My heart, stop being overjoyed
Remember you were once destroyed
By Mathilde, who's come back to me
Fellas, please don't go away
Tell me that I mustn't stay
Mathilde's coming back today

My hands, you'll start to shake again
When you remember all the pain
Mathilde's come back to me
You'll want to beat her black and blue
But don't do it, I beg of you
Mathilde's come back to me
My hands, remember all the years
Remember when you caught my tears
Mathilde's come back to me
My hands, you'll want to touch her now
But please try and be strong somehow
Mathilde's here, she's coming now, now

Mama, can you hear me yell
Your baby boy's gone back to hell
Mathilde's come back to me
Charley, champagne right away
I know you've been saving it for the holiday
But Mathilde's come back to me
Go ask the maid if she heard what I said
Tell her to put the best sheets on the bed
Mathilde's come back to me
My friends, don't count on me no more
I've gone and crashed through heaven's door
My sweet Mathilde's here
Once more, once more

Funny, I just heard this song for the first time tonight in the fourth episode of Outer Range and I only first heard of Scott Walker maybe a month ago while listening to psychedelicized radio.

Same, I went and looked it up and here I am lol.

Yes me too but as I already said the original version is even better.

honestly whoever is putting together the soundtrack for the show Outer Range on prime needs a raise. Been introduced and reminded of so many great tunes.

Thank you so much for uploading all these great Scott Walker songs. He was 'head and shoulders' above any male singer of the 60's, and a great song interpreter. Wonderful to hear these great songs again!

Oh come on...Elvis, Sinatra, Tom Jones, Van Morrison, Andy Williams, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, Tony Bennett, Sam Cooke, Smoky Robinson, John Fogerty, Jackie Wilson, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Eric Burdon, Bobby Hatfield, Gene Pitney, Robert Plant, Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, Burton Cummings, Johnny Mathis et al, were in a different stratosphere

The Orchestration on this track is great, Scott's voice is as always Sublime R,I P💜✌️☘️👍

William Silk

I love Walker's versions of the Brel songs!
 ...... the Orchestrations are  awesome!

swamp thang

Agreed the music is like film scores...

Tony Cowdrill

There is truly no other song which adequately conveys the full range of emotions that one feels, when someone comes back into your life, someone who you loved completely, someone who broke you. You have finally rebuilt yourself and then... they return. This is all that you feel.
