"What Would Jay-Z Do?" as written by and Ben Lee....
I wanna look sharp, be strong
Refuse when I know it?s wrong
I want you to know my name
I want the hottest chick in the game

I want a big heart and I want a big car
I wanna be a self-made man
I wanna know the things
That he understands

What does he do
When he's lost and confused
What would Jay-Z do?
When I'm feeling blue
What would Jay-Z do?

I wanna pay my dues
A better life I wanna choose
I wanna seize the day
Vacation in St. Tropez

I wanna grow through the pain
I wanna change the game
But it?s times like these
When life brings me to my knees

What does he do
When it?s hard to get through
What would Jay-Z do?
(What would Jay-Z do?)
I'm talking to you
What would Jay-Z do?

Oh yeah, ?cause you are you and I am not
So come on, show me what you got
You are you and I am not
So come on, show me what you got

What would Jay-Z do?
What would Jay-Z do?
What would Jay-Z do?
I'm talkin? to you
What would Jay-Z do?

    General CommentIt's probably about the replacement of religion with the worship of fame and celebrity. What would Jesus do is a common Christian thing where people think how Jesus would act before doing anything - replacing this with Jay-Z refers to celebrity worship, and the verses are all about fame and the benefits, replacing the more traditional values of kindness, love, etc.
