Sam & Dave - When Something Is Wrong With My Baby Lyrics

When something is wrong with my baby
Something is wrong with me
And if I know she is worried
Then I would feel that same misery

Baby we have so much together
We stand as one
And that's what makes it better
When something is wrong with my baby
Something is wrong with me

Now listen, just what, uh-huh, she means to me now
Oh you just wouldn't, you just wouldn't understand
People can say she's no good
But oh, she's my woman
And I know I'm her man
And if she's got a problem
Ooh, I know, I know, I got to help her solve it

When something is wrong with my baby (sho' nuff)
Something is wrong with me
Now, say it again
When something is wrong with my baby
Something is wrong with me
Oh hey, yeah

Sam & Dave When Something Is Wrong With My Baby Comments
  1. Ujima Jame

    The better live version was the one on the album "Stax/Volt Live in London" from the same period:

  2. cleveland manley


  3. Ken Ford

    Classic soul

  4. pfwed

    Slow ballads like this with such dynamic arrangements are truly what separate men from boys when it comes to singing and playing. *Misters* Sam and Dave, and band, as good as it gets right here. Extraordinary emotional control and release. Amazing performance by all.

  5. Madison Petal

    If something wrong with my baby, then something wrong with me.

    Something is wrong with a woman physical, emotional, mentally, most time its behind a man who broke her down .

    If something wrong with my baby, then something wrong with me.

    Men love your women so both yall can drive that car 🎁💞🎱✔

    I listen to this kind of music often-I adore it-funnily enough I actually came here from an interview with the cast of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. If you have an adoration and passion for music (or musicals) I recommend this show. You can find the first episode on the channel created by NBC “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.”

  16. William Thieshen

    Met these dudes after a. Performance in Pittsburgh, very pleasant dudes!

  17. G. Parpee Mckay

    I don't know if music will ever be this way again. It touches your soul deep inside and you feel that sanation deep in.

  18. Glenn Holden

    I've got all of their albums. Remembering darmstadt germany at the PX $2.50 an album.

  19. Richard Gamble

    If Joe Tex, and Sam Cooke was singing this song with Sam and Dave we would know that God was talking to us him self. These are the golden voice giants of our time

  20. kathy Johson

    WOW hadn't heard this in at least 45-50 years!!! Fantastic, still👍👍👍👍

  21. Flo Liddell

    Omg, Everytime I watch this video I always end up closing my eyes and remembering those good old 60s-70s. Those were the good days. Some bad but for the most part alot of good. Only bad is remembering my father coming home drunk beating the crap outta my mom for being so good to him. It just take me by surprise Everytime that I still hold so much resentment too this day. The blessing that came out of it is that it taught me that only the strong survive and that's exactly what my mom was and is STRONG... PEACE BE WITH U...💯💪

  32. Martin Mason

    This is euphoria! How is modern technology bettering a show when this is sublime. Holding the shot, getting the magic, not flitting around and bringing in the periphery. Captivating and moving in every sense of the word. Thanks for the upload.

  87. Ursula Villegas

    Thank Goodness for you tube wow

  88. Steve Tessier

    Sam and Dave were awesome....!!! I miss this depth of commitment to the music. In 2019,There are zero musicians of such high Calibre. Sadly.!!!

    David Whiteis

    It's even more amazing when you realize that they'd had a serious personal falling-out by this time, and they barely talked to one another offstage; at one point, they even refused to look at each other ON stage. Yet they were such pros, and their commitment to their art was so total, that when they did their show it was impossible to tell that anything was wrong.

  89. Lola Nino

    Oh hell yea!!!

  90. Steve Tessier

    Hearing this lovely song, reminds me of walking beside my big brother. And soon he would leave us. To lead his fellow Marines , in a shitty jungle war. In the Republic of Vietnam. The song makes me cry. Because I miss my big brother so very very much.

  91. Doug Smith

    Played in one of my favorite movies ever- "Stand up Guys", and the sweetest scene EVER! Right straight to the soul!

  92. Kennethj Johnson

    Bad man ken
