"What Goes Around... Comes Around" (originally entitled What Goes Around.../...Comes Around (Interlude)) is a live acoustic cover performed on May 23, 2007 on the UK radio station Radio 1 to promote the 2007 album Eat Me, Drink Me, originally written and performed by Justin Timberlake in 2006 for his album FutureSex/LoveSounds.

The song was chosen to be performed due to the irony in the song content when applied to real-life situations. It was a selected choice from a set of options to play songs by the artists Amy Winehouse and Muse.

Lyrics[edit]

    Hey girl
    Is he everything you wanted in a man?
    You know I gave you the world
    You had me in the palm of your hand
    So why your love went away
    I just can't seem to understand
    Thought it was me and you, babe
    Me and you until the end
    But I guess I was wrong
    
    Don't wanna think about it
    Don't wanna talk about it
    I'm just so sick about it
    I can't believe it's ending this way
    Just so confused about it
    Feeling the blues about it
    I just can't do without ya
    Tell me is this fate
    
    Is the way it's really going down?
    Is this how we say goodbye?
    Shoulda known better when you came around
    That you were gonna make me cry
    It's breaking my heart to watch you run around
    Knowing that you're living a lie
    But that's okay, 'cause in time you will find
    
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    
    Now girl
    I remember everything that you claimed
    You said that you were moving on now
    Maybe I should do the same
    The funny thing about that is
    I was ready to give you my name
    Thought it was me and you babe
    And now, it's all just a shame
    That I guess I was wrong
    
    Don't wanna think about it
    Don't wanna talk about it
    I'm just so sick about it
    I can't believe it's ending this way
    Just so confused about it
    Feeling the blues about it
    I just can't do without ya
    Tell me is this fate
    
    Is the way it's really going down?
    Is this how we say goodbye?
    Shoulda known better when you came around
    That you were gonna make me cry
    It's breaking my heart to watch you run around
    Knowing that you're living a lie
    But that's okay, 'cause in time you will find
    
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    What goes around, comes around, goes around, comes all the way back around
    
    What goes around comes around
    What goes around comes around
