feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland

(Timbaland:)
I'm outta time and all I got is 4 minutes
(8x)
Come on
Yeah
Break down
Come on

(Madonna:)
Come on, boy
I've been waiting for somebody
To pick up my stroll

(Justin:)
Well, don't waste time
Give me a sign
Tell me how you want to roll

(Madonna:)
I want somebody to speed it up for me
Then take it down slow
There's enough room for both

(Justin:)
Well, I can handle that
You just gotta show me where it's at
Are you ready to go?
(Are you ready to go? )

(Madonna & Justin:)
If you want it
You already got it
If you thought it
It better be what you want
If you feel it
It must be real
Just say the word and
Imma give you what you want

(Madonna & Justin:)
Time is waiting
We only got 4 minutes to save the world
No hesitating
Grab a boy, grab a girl
Time is waiting
We only got 4 minutes to save the world
No hesitating
We only got 4 minutes, 4 minutes

(Madonna, Justin & Timbaland:)
Keep it up, keep it up, don't be a pri, hey
Madonna, uh
You gotta get in line, hop
Tick tock tick tock tick tock
That's right, keep it up, keep it up, don't be a pri, hey
Madonna, uh
You gotta get in line, hop
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

(Madonna:)
Sometimes I think
What I need is a you intervention, yeah

(Justin:)
And you know I can tell that you like it
And that it's good
By the way that you move
Ooh, hey

(Madonna:)
The road to hell
Is paved with good intentions, yeah

(Justin:)
But if I die tonight
At least I can say I did what I wanted to do
Tell me, how bout you?

(Madonna & Justin:)
If you want it
You already got it
If you thought it
It better be what you want
If you feel it
It must be real
Just say the word and
Imma give you what you want

(Madonna & Justin:)
Time is waiting
We only got 4 minutes to save the world
No hesitating
Grab a boy, grab a girl
Time is waiting
We only got 4 minutes to save the world
No hesitating
We only got 4 minutes, 4 minutes

(Madonna, Justin & Timbaland:)
Keep it up, keep it up, don't be a pri, hey
Madonna, uh
You gotta get in line, hop
Tick tock tick tock tick tock
That's right, keep it up, keep it up, don't be a pri, hey
Madonna, uh
You gotta get in line, hop
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

(Timbaland:)
Breakdown
Yeah
(Tick tock tick tock tick tock)
Yeah, uh huh
(Tick tock tick tock tick tock)
I only got 4 minutes
To save the world

    haha! the title is 4 minutes but the song is 4 minutes and 7 seconds.. this song is so cool!!the make up makes madonna looks beautiful and younger..madonna looks verrry old with no make up..whatever..she can dance very well not like the other women at her age.

    This song is so good!!! Madonna may be 50, but she's still a great singer, this song is saying that there's 4 Minutes left and all they're gonna do is fun stuff...Justin Timberlake and Timbaland both rock...
