What's the matter now?
Did your Daddy not buy you that new car?
What's the matter now?
Are you finally scared that you have gone too far?

You might ask us how we are as if you care
It's just an opportunity to compare
Reaffirm that you're no average Joe
Living in some perfect world that we'll never know

Oh if you don't mind then I would quite
Like to live your life for just one day
Cos I'd be so much happier where you are now
Could do so much if I was where you are now
But I know it's never to be

What's the matter now?
Can you not understand why things aren't going right?
What's the matter now?
Will no-one answer their phone to you tonite?

Well, don't get me wrong, I've got no problem
With how you want to live your life
But you could keep it to yourself
Every once in a while, and try wiping off that self-satisfied smile

Oh if you don't mind then I would quite
Like to live your life for just one day
Cos I'd be so much happier where you are now
Could do so much if I was where you are now
But I know it's never to be
