Published September 20, 2013

Justin Timberlake released his new single, "TKO," yesterday, the second track after "Take Back the Night" to be released from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. The Timbaland-produced track is a stunning seven minutes long, which is double the length of the average pop song, so get comfortable. The song is full of boxing metaphors and densely layered production, so you're in luck if you're into these things. Check below for the lyrics.

"TKO" - Justin Timberlake

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

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

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

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
