Click inside to read the lyrics to Justin Timberlake‘s new song…

[Spoken - Timbaland]
Kill me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo
She kill me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo (x5)
Lights out, TKO

[Verse 1]
Baby, everyday in training to get the gold
That’s why your body’s crazy
But you can’t run from yourself, that’s where it’s difficult
Girl I can see in your eyes that there’s something inside that made you evil
Where did you go, ’cause it just ain’t fair
Over here thinking ’bout the sh-t you say
Don’t know why it gets to me

[Bridge]
It cuts right on my eye, yeah it hurt, won’t lie
Still can’t see, think I saw you with another guy
Can’t fight, knocked down, then I got over you
Can’t fight no more, you knock me out
What am I supposed to do?

[Chorus]
I don’t understand it
Tell me how could you be so low
Been swinging after the bell and after all of the whistle blows
Tried to go below the belt, through my chest, perfect hit ’til the dawn, dammit babe
This ain’t the girl I used to know
No, not anymore, TKO

[Post-Chorus]
I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
It’s just a TKO
I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO
T-TKO
Out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO
Now, I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO

[Verse 2]
Baby, now I really know what we’re fighting for
This rematch sex is amazing
But nobody wins when if somebody’s heart is slow
‘Cause when I see you move like you got something inside that made you lethal
Where did you go, ‘it just ain’t fair
Over here thinking ’bout the sh-t you do
Don’t know what I got to lose

[Bridge]
It cuts right on my eye, yeah it hurt, won’t lie
Still can’t see, think I saw you with another guy
Can’t fight, knocked down, then I got over you
Can’t fight no more, you knock me out
What am I supposed to do?

[Chorus]
I don’t understand it
Tell me how could you be so low
Been swinging after the bell and after all of the whistle blows
Tried to go below the belt, through my chest, perfect hit ’til the dawn, dammit babe
This ain’t the girl I used to know
No, not anymore, TKO

[Post-Chorus]
I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
It’s just a TKO
I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO
T-TKO
Out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO
Now, I’m out for the count
Yeah, girl, you knock me out
With a TKO

[Spoken - Timbaland]
Girl
See what you doing
See what you doing, girl?
You knock me right out
See what you do (x2)
Girl, girl, girl…
You knock me right out
Hey girl
See what you do (x2)
Girl, girl, girl…
You knock me right out
Hey girl
See what you do (x2)
Girl, girl, girl…
You knock me right out

[Bridge]
It cuts right on my eye, yeah it hurt, won’t lie
Still can’t see, think I saw you with another guy
Can’t fight, knocked down, then I got over you
Can’t fight no more, you knock me out
What am I supposed to do?

[Chorus]
I don’t understand it
Tell me how could you be so low
You’ve been swinging after the bell and after all of the whistle blows
Tried to go below the belt, through my chest, perfect hit ’til the dawn, dammit babe
This ain’t the girl I used to know
No, not anymore, TKO

  • jennifer

    I am such a huge fan of JT and loved his last two albums, but I gotta say, I haven’t liked 20/20 at all. Maybe cause he was gone for 7 years he needs to get his groove back, but he isn’t bringing anything new to the table which he used to always do. I wanted to love it, but I don’t. And a lot of people seem to agree since none of his singles have hit #1 on the Billboard Charts and most didn’t even crack the top 50 on the Billboard hot 100 i.e. Take Back the Night, Tunnel Vision. Step it up JT!

  • Mimi

    Tunnel Vision wasn’t even an official single. Take back the night is the only song that hasn’t done well. Anyway I love this.

  • Eduardo

    @tenisha i love you… hahahhahahaha

  • Not your friend

    Pls go away with all the fakeness

  • Xtina

    All his songs SOUND THE SAME.

  • vicky

    AWESOME

  • sophia

    I really like this so far.. i think it’s way better than take back the night

  • http://yes!!! EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    .
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    .
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds!!!
    .
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!
    .
    PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

  • Tom

    Enough for the stupid boxing references. We got it. You enjoy boxing. Enough obviously to write an entire song about. Damnit this is boring.

  • Rebecca

    @EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!:
    I will do my best to let the world know!!

  • Lia

    I love Justin, but I don’t like the song:(

  • Nicole

    I feel like this song is about Britney. Maybe?

  • Nick

    @jennifer:
    You must need to check your facts. Since he’s returned, he’s released or been featured on five singles, TKO being the sixth. This is how they charted on the Billboard 100:

    Suit & Tie: #3
    Mirrors: #2 (and 31 weeks later STILL sitting inside the top 20)
    Tunnel Vision: #111 (#11 on the bubbling under)
    Holy Grail: #4
    Take Back the Night: #29

    So, first of all, you were wrong about TBTN not being inside the Top 50, as it made it into the Top 30. And as for him not having a #1 not meaning success? He has 3 Top 5 hits so far just this year. Not to mention each song that charted Top 5 has had massive worldwide success.

    Yes, he did stumble with Tunnel Vision, but 20/20 Part 1 wasn’t filled with radio ready hits. He tried his luck with Tunnel Vision, got some press from the music video, but when it didn’t get any play, he immediately pulled it and released TBTN (after having just released Holy Grail the week prior on top of that).

    Point being, there hasn’t been a time since his comeback where he hasn’t had a song on the radio and he also has two movies coming out. Think about that. Two albums, Two tours, Two movies, and at least 3 Top 5 singles all in one year.

  • Avery

    Boring, he should shake it up and work with other producers… Songs all sound the same.

  • LLLLL

    @Nicole:

    Me too. Who else could be “so low” and “aint the girl he used to know” ?

  • Nick

    @LLLLL:
    Cameron Diaz… but really, it doesn’t have to be about anyone. He could be using past experiences to help create ideas, but it’s not about them.

  • Flo

    @Nicole:
    Yeah…I think the same thing.

  • http://@legendly07 A.L.K

    great song from jt…it really knocked me out…..keep up the good bro..

  • Kathy

    I love it! Pure JT&Timbaland!

  • Tammie

    @EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!:
    I have seen this a lot!

  • moon

    @Nicole: I think the same thing . Love JT and Love Britney!:D

  • Katey

    You mean 3rd single after Suit&Tie and Mirrors.

  • itstrue

    I do not understand the appeal of this guy. Does nothing for me.

  • Nick

    @Katey:
    This is a different album, so it’s only the second from 20/20 (2 of 2).

  • Roger Moore

    This isn’t even music – it’s just beats overlayed with voice exercises, just like all of JT’s songs. He’s not a bad actor, he’s certainly charismatic, but you’re fooling yourself if you think this is well-composed music – you’re just buying what he’s selling, and it’s awful.

  • http://justjared.com Jason

    Same old stuff. It all sounds the same.

  • Gary

    Freakin’ awesome!

  • Phil

    Timbo + JT = Perfection

  • Denisa

    @Nicole this song is about Brit Brit <3

  • Aoede

    JT needs to stop collaborating with Timbaland. That song is good, but with the predictable Timba beats and his rapping in the background, its getting redundant and stale.

  • angela

    The song is not about anyone, and it doesn’t have to be.

  • Mark

    What is up with all the comment about same sound etc. The song is good. Ppl will find what ever they can to complain about the music. Not having a #1 song doesn’t mean any thing. He’s been gone for 6-7 years, the music industry has change so much during his absent. Artists are trying to go mainstream and try making a radio hit or try making a club hit. First he wasn’t making music, ppl will b**** and say he needs to come back and start releasing new music. Once he comes back, the complaining continues. Some song sucks, it all sounds the same, album wasn’t that good. He needs to switch up his sound and producer. It’s call being loyal to the person that made him big as a solo artist. It’s like ppl complaining about other artist switching up their sound, oh they changed, I like their old albums better, they need to go back to that style again. If JT switches it up ppl will still complain.

  • Irresistable Girl

    I do agree that this song does sounds the same like some of the songs that J.T has sang before, but anyway in spite of all that, no matter what our opinions of this track it’s definitely going to be a hit. The lyrics does sounds like he’s talking about Britney but what I don’t get is when he’s saying in the song Girl I can see in your eyes that there’s something inside that made you evil where did you go, ’cause it just ain’t fair over here thinking ’bout the sh-t you say don’t know why it gets to me. Saying those lyrics that don’t sound like the Britney Spears that we know as a person and artist. I honestly believe that JT is talking about some one else (a young lady of course) that he’s madly in love with and the relationship with this lady seems like it’s hot and cold between him and this lady. The lady what he’s expressing his feelings for seems to have a split personality (un-like Britney Spears) that’s why he’s saying that he can see it in her eyes that something evil or the evil twin side of her has changed her personality and made her fall out of love with J.T and now end up in the arms of another guy that J.T knows he cannot compete with. He (J.T) knows about this other guy and it breaks his heart that this guy that this lady is with has taken place of her affection. Because he see’s that she is truly happy and contented with this guy and relationship with this lady and this new guy has gone a distance comparing to what this lady had with him (J.T) and JT never expected that. There is possibility that he keep hearing from other people that know him as a person what this lady has being saying about him that makes him so angry because this lady has being saying things about him that might be truthful about him that he obviously finds offensive, but yet still he can’t stop loving her because she always turn him on no matter what she does and he can’t stop thinking about the great sex they keep having when they were together as a couple. Even though Justin is now married now, his wife Jessica and Justin knows this too, That Jessica will never ever have what it takes to make Justin really happy comparing to this Lady what he’s referring too in his song regardless what her faults are because this Lady is just one of a kind…

  • takethat

    i think the song is dedicated to an Asian -Filipina girl JT met in
    Australia. Just like the 2006 album FSLS the song contains the girls name initials.

  • day

    If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. The song is great and so is Justin!!!!

  • takethat

    i dont think that JT is mere in love with the girl, i think its more of an obsession with the girl that is emotionally unavailable.

  • heythere

    I loved this song from the very first second on.. I dont know why, I just absolutely love it, even though it kind of sounds like other songs.. but who cares, it’s a good song and of course his songs kind of sound similiar, because that’s his style! And I love it & don’t care about the rest.

  • takethat

    @LLLLL with regards to the lyrics TKO “so low” , the lyrics refers to the name initials of the girl, SL for So Low, just like SL initials of JT songs
    Summer Love and Sexy Ladies. JT even put the name of the girl in the beginning of the song..She……. SHE kill me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo (x5)..just like in LS Love Stoned I Think SHE knows

  • jennifer

    @Nick:
    I am aware Suit and Tie and Mirrors placed on the charts, neither hit #1. TBTN didn’t even break the top ten and what I meant is peeking at 29, in JT’s history of success is a fail, I’m sure he isn’t happy about it either. And Tunnel Vision tanked so bad he pulled it. Coming from a person who has has had a #1 hit on EVERY album he has done? umm, yes… that is success and I’m sure it is something he is upset about too. Miley Cyrus hit #1, but not JT. Like I said, I’m a huge fan, but his comeback was not the big hit Future Sex Lovesounds was, and while I am a fan, I am also able to be honest and call a spade when it is a spade. I was disappointed and just about every JT fan I personally know was disappointed as well.

  • jennifer

    @Nick:
    oh and by the way…if we are getting “facts” straight. Holy Grail is NOT Justin’s song. It is jay Z’s on Jay Z’s album which he is a featured singer. he didn’t even help write it. I LOVE Holy Grail, but I am referring to 20/20, his solo album. Not songs for other artists.

  • r0ckmypants

    @jennifer: Take Back the Night hit #29, which is definitely the Top 50. And even though Suit & Tie only hit #3, it has sold more copies than his #1 My Love. So… try again.

  • r0ckmypants

    @jennifer: Also, he never had a #1 single on Justified.

  • Verity

    @jennifer: He said from the beginning that this album was going to be different. Justin Timberlake has grown as an artist with this album and has gained new fans in the process. I am a new fan of Justin Timberlake as are others I know, love the new sound, keep it coming. TKO!!!

  • Verity

    @Nick: Exactly, TBTN and TKO!

  • http://Instagram.com/jaszyyy Jasmin

    It was totally about Britney. I love this song, way better than his others. “TKO” and “Mirrors” have been my favorite.

  • SheWins

    Justin can you just say Britney wins already so we all can go home now?You might be all fancy pants now with your fake straight hair and all, and she may be a hot mess at times, not giving a shizz when she steps out in public wearing yesterday’s pyjamas, but admit it…she still has a hold over you. And she doesn’t even have to try! It’s a flawless TKO baby.
