“Young Man” by Justin Timberlake Lyrics

Da-da
Da-da
Yeah, good job

I said, young man, sit down let me tell you how it’s supposed to be
How they told me
I said, young man, if you wanna make God smile
Make plans, you’ve got to be ready
You don’t understand, right now you’re a young man
You ‘gon have to stand for something

Beautiful boy, got it from your momma
Damn she look good, you might get a sister
By the time you get the picture, if you get a woman this good
Gotta pay the system
And it’s all right
And if you need to cry, you’ve got my permission
You can do anything in the world if you listen
Like a young man

Sit down let me tell you how it’s supposed to be
How they told me
Say, young man, if you wanna make God smile
Make plans you’ve got to be ready
You don’t understand, right now you’re a young man
But you ‘gon have to stand for something

We don’t ever back down, don’t back down
We don’t have to act out, don’t act out
And even when you fall, don’t stay down
If you need me around you know I stay down
And anywhere you go, you can go your own way
If you ask me how I know these things remember I once was a

Young man, sit down let me tell you how it’s supposed to be
How they told me
Say, young man, if you wanna make God smile
Make plans you’ve got to be ready
You don’t understand, right now you’re a young man
But you ‘gon have to stand for something

Someday somebodies gonna break your heart in two
And I’ll be there
Someday, you’re gonna break somebodies heart
That’s what we do
One day I’ll be gone, but right now I’m home
No, you’ll never be alone
And maybe someday you’ll be talking to your own
Young man, yeah
You know your daddy’s so proud of you
My little young man
Mama can’t just get enough of you
My little young man, yeah
You know your daddy’s so proud of you
My little young man

I said, young man, sit down let me tell you how it’s supposed to be
How they told me
Say, young man, if you wanna make God smile
Make plans you’ve got to be ready
You don’t understand, right now you’re a young man
But you ‘gon have to stand for something

Is it daddy?
Daddy!
Daddy!
Yeah, that’s daddy
Say “I love you, daddy”
“I love you, daddy” (sweet boy)
