What Goes Around Comes Goes Around Lyrics

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

    The narrator has been let down by his girlfriend, who left him for another man. He is predicting that one day she will face the same fate as someone sleazy enough to be willing to cheat will eventually do the same.

    The video starts off with Timberlake flirting with Johansson on the rooftop of a 1950's Moulin Rouge circus-style club. She rejects with a tease at first but eventually leaves with him to go back to his place. In between cuts, they are shown in bed caressing each other. Johansson jumps into a pool outside the house, and floats below the surface as if she is drowning. Timberlake runs out and pulls her up; she laughs at Timberlake and kisses him.

    In another scene, Timberlake introduces her to a drunk Shawn Hatosy at the club calling her "The One". Hatosy seems to be interested in Johansson, despite Timberlake asking him to "look out for her". Timberlake returns and finds them kissing in the stairway. After punching Hatosy he chases after Johansson, who speeds off in her 1967 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray; Timberlake follows in his Porsche Carrera GT. Johansson runs into a fiery car crash pile up and is ejected from the car as it tumbles through the air and lands several feet away 2 times. Timberlake notices a motionless body lying supine on the ground. He gets out and kneels over her while the camera view moves toward the sky.

    Some scenes shows Timberlake performing on the stairway with a microphone while a group of unknown girls with red paint on their eyes are seen dancing next to him while one (Johansson) is seen waving her batons with fire on them near the end of the video.
