"What's a Man to Do" as written by Mikkel Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Johnta Austin and Usher Raymond....
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Yeah,
Listen

I'd be a liar if I told you
That I didn't see it comin'
It'd be more of a lie if I said
Hey, I didn't want it to be something

You deserve much better
For the love that you have shared
I know you won't believe it
But girl I swear

That I got love for you,
Big love for you,
Even when I`m trippin',
The fact remains that you
Will always be my baby, my baby

But dig the truth,
Baby dig the truth
I can't hide my feelings

Especially when the whole world can see

[Chorus]
That my heart is in two different places
I got you in my life
And I wanna do right
But it's hard to let it go
When my love has two different faces
And I can't break ties cause they both look right
Someone tell me
What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
And he don't wanna lie
But he can't tell the truth
What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
But he can't keep his heart
In two different places (in two different places)

I know you feel it cause you stayed
There is much more to the story
But I'd be a fool to say I trust it and I´m always gonna love her
You know that you don't wanna hear
How I'm livin' on the edge, baby
So I just say "Yeah, baby"
She ain't nothing,
But she is real
But why I take her through it
When I still got love for you,
Big love for you
Even when I'm trippin',
The fact remains that you
Will always be my baby, my baby

But dig the truth,
Baby dig the truth
I can't hide my feelings
Especially when the whole world can see

[Chorus]

I wanna tell you it's over
And that I ain't thinkin' of her
I wanna really mean it
And I want you to see it
That I really try to leave her behind
And I'm tryin' not to make you cry
I wanna tell you
That I ain't playin' games
And I'm dedicated to receive a change but
When I look in the mirror
It's the same old me

[Hook]

[Chorus]

Not in two different places.

    General CommentThis song doesnt really need any translation. Its about loving two girls at the same time and not being able to decide between them

    General CommentSometimes the best way to show expression is through music. Nine times out of ten it will take the words right out of your mouth. In Usher’s song “What’s a Man to do”, Usher sings about a man who is at conflict with himself because he is in love with two girls. He is not sure what one he wants because he is in love with both of them. Should he hide it? Who knows when like karma, it will get back to him and if it did he might end up with none. In the song he said, “I know you won’t believe it but girl I swear I got love for you”. This happens to people all the time. They may have mixed feelings but they know how they feel. This song is good for girls in their teens; you know the ones that think every guy is out to break their hearts because maybe not every guy is a player. They could just be in a sticky situation. So next time you don’t know what to do or need an answer about your love life just ask Usher he can tell you “What’s a Man to do”.

    General CommentIt's about a guy who's in love with 2 girls and can't make up his mind. It could as well be a girl who's in love with 2 guys and can't make up her mind.
