    That young boy without a name
    Anywhere I'd know his face
    In this city the kid's my favorite
    I've seen him
    I see him every day
    Seen him run outside
    Looking for a place to hide
    From his father
    The kid half naked
    And said to myself
    "O, what's the matter here?"

    I'm tired of the excuses
    Everbody uses
    He's their kid
    I stay out of it
    But who gave you the right
    To do this?

    We live on Morgan Street
    Just ten feet between
    And his mother
    I never see her
    But her screams and cussing
    I hear them every day
    Threats like
    "If you don't mind
    I will beat on your behind"
    "Slap you, slap you silly"
    Made me say
    "O, what's the matter here?"

    I'm tired of the excuses
    Everybody uses
    He's your kid
    Do as you see fit
    But get this through
    That I don't approve
    Of what you did
    To you own flesh and blood

    I'm tired of the excuses
    Everybody uses
    He's your kid
    Do as you see fit
    But get this through
    That I don't approve
    Of what you did
    To you own flesh and blood

    "If you don't sit
    In your chair straight
    I'll take this belt
    From around my waist
    And don't you think
    That I won't use it!"
    Answer me and take your time
    What could be the awful crime
    He could do at such young an age?
    If I'm the only witness
    To your madness
    Offer me some words to balance
    Out what I see and what I hear
    All these cold and rude
    Things that you do
    I suppose you do
    Because he belongs to you
    And instead of love
    And the feel of warmth
    You've given him these cuts
    And sores won't heal
    With time or age
    I want to say
    "What's the Matter here?"
    But I don't dare say
    "What's the Matter here?"
    But I don't dare say
