(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: WHAT A MAN GOTTA DO BY JONAS BROTHERS

IG @ ogefashblog.

Like y’all know that Jonas Brothersmean three brothers (Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas) that formed a band called “Jonas Brothers.”

Ehen, moving on. So, when I first heard the song “What a man gotta do” by the Jonas Brothers, it took me down memory lane of the days of the music band- Westlife. I instantly remembered one of their pop tracks titled “What makes a man” from the album “Coast to Coast” which was released in the year 2000. I really don’t why the song came to mind; I am yet to figure that out…

WHAT IS THE SONG “WHAT A MAN GOTTA DO” BY JONAS BROTHERS ABOUT

This is a love song no doubt. The song is about a guy who falls irrevocably in love with a certain lady and desires to be the only man in her life. Knowing fully well that the lady may have lots of guys wooing her; he desires to know what to pray about as well as how to prove his love for her in order to capture her heart. He is trying everything possible to make this lady desire him and gain full control of only him just like he wants to be the only one having access to her heart.

He further shows his readiness to be a dedicated lover for her sake and goes as far as differentiating himself from other guys who may be wooing her with cliche words.

The song has two verses. The pre chorus was taken twice while the chorus and post chors was taken thrice. The lyrics flowed well with the beat. The Jonas Brothers were also consistent with the style of rhythm. The drums, keyboard, percussion, guitar used in composing the song enhanced the beauty of the song.

The witty video features the three wives of the singers-  Danielle Jonas (The wife of Kevin Jonas), Sophie Turner Jonas (The wife of Joe Jonas) and Priyanka Chopra Jonas (The wife of Nick Jonas).

Funny line (s)

Wondering what they mean by “I’d lose a fight just to see you smile”

“You ain’t tryna be wasting time. On stupid people in cheap lines, I’m sure, I’m sure”
Please, which lady would smile if her man loses a fight? Y’all kindly let me know via the comment box…

LYRICS TO WHAT A MAN GOTTA DO BY THE JONAS BROTHERS

VERSE 1

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.

PRE CHORUS

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

CHORUS

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”

POST CHORUS

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

VERSE 2

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

PRE CHORUS

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

CHORUS

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

What a man gotta do? (What a man gotta do?)

To be your last ‘goodnight’ and your first ‘good day’
