SINGLE PREMIERE: Justin Timberlake – “TKO” (+ Lyrics)

He's a Soul survivor.

He’s a Soul survivor.

After the under-performance of lead single “Take Back The Night”, Justin Timberlake is out with a song that’s sure to be a knockout. “TKO” is the second single from The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, which is due in stores on September 30. (Stream a clip of the song.) Like the first edition of the album, look for a deluxe edition sold exclusively at Target. Enjoy!

Listen to “TKO”. / Purchase “TKO” on iTunes.

“TKO”

(If there’s any corrections, let me know below! Thanks to Denisa for the slight edit and Kurt Trowbridge as well.)

[Spoken – Timbaland]
Killed me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo
She killed me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo (x6)
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 to the dome, 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
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 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 to the dome, 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
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?
Y-Y-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 to the dome, dammit babe
This ain’t the girl I used to know
No, not anymore, TKO
TKO, TKO

[Chorus]
I don’t understand it
Tell me how could you be so low, damn
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 to the dome, dammit babe
Dammit babe, dammit babe…

[Outro]
She killed me with the coo-coochie-coochie-coo
She killed me with the coo-cooch
So, dammit babe…
