multiplication of non-numeric matrixes

Can I use Gauss to multiply (or conduct other algebraic calculations) non-numeric matrixes? Say we have two matrixes:
A={a11 a12, a21 a22} and B={b11 b12, b21 b22}
can I print out A*B ?

What exactly do you want to get back? Do you want it to print out the equation for a matrix multiply in terms of the text in A and B?

i.e. the literal text below?

a11*b11+a12*b21    a11*b12+a12*b22
a21*b11+a22*b21  a21*b12 +a22*b22
