  • Caught my heart about one, two times
    Don't need to question the reason I'm yours, I'm yours
    I'd move the earth or lose a fight just to see you smile
    'Cause you got no flaws, no flaws

    I'm not tryna be your part time lover
    Sign me up for that full time, I'm yours, all yours

    So what a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta do?
    To be totally locked up by you
    What a man gotta say?
    What a man gotta pray?
    To be your last "Goodnight" and your first "Good day"

    So what a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta do?
    To be totally locked up by you
    What a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta prove?
    To be totally locked up by you

    You ain't tryna be wasting time
    On stupid people in cheap lines, I'm sure, I'm sure
    So I'd give a million dollars just for you to grab me by the collar
    And I'll come build us, build us

    I'm not tryna be your part-time lover
    Sign me up for that full-time
    I'm yours, I'm yours

    So what a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta do?
    To be totally locked up by you
    What a man gotta say?
    What a man gotta pray?
    To be your last "Goodnight" and your first "Good day"

    So what a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta do?
    To be totally locked up by you
    What a man gotta do?
    What a man gotta prove?
    To be totally locked up by you

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

    (Tell me what a man gotta do)
    So what a man gotta do? (What a man gotta do?)
    What a man gotta do? (What a man gotta do, yeah?)
    To be totally locked up by you (totally locked up by you)
    What a man gotta say? (Man gotta say?)
    What a man gotta pray? (What a man gotta pray?)
    To be your last 'goodnight' and your first 'good day'

    So what a man gotta do? (What a man gotta do?)
    What a man gotta do?
    To be totally locked up by you (totally locked up by you)
    What a man gotta do? (Hey, baby)
    What a man gotta prove? (What a man gotta prove?)
    To be totally locked up by you (totally locked up by you) Writer/s: David Stewart, Jessica Agombar, Joseph Jonas, Nick Jonas, Paul Kevin Jonas, Ryan B Tedder
