What's A Matter Baby
Small Faces Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When people ask me what love's all about
There's one thing I can say
Some people believe just what I'm puttin' down
Understand your troubles away

You got to do this thing we're feeling
You got to know just what I'm meaning
You gotta believe just what I'm handing
Understanding, understanding

You got to do this thing we're feeling
You got to know just what I'm meaning
You gotta believe just what I'm handing
Understanding, yes, understanding, alright

You see I love this life I live
And I wanna love it with you
But people if you don't understand
Just what I'm, what I'm puttin' down
There's no more I can do

You got to do this thing we're feeling
You got to know just what I'm meaning




You gotta believe just what I'm handing
Understanding, understanding
