Check out the first draft of the hit song.

Writing a song can be an arduous process and while it may be hard to fathom, even Justin Bieber finds it tough sometimes. Take for instance the process behind his latest hit, “What Do You Mean?” Co-written by Bieber himself, the song went through a variety of drafts in order to become the radio staple you hear today. For the first time ever, here is the original draft.

What do you mean?
When you nod your head “yes” but you wanna say “no”
What do you mean?
When you don’t want me to move, but you tell me to go
What do you mean?

What do you mean?
You rolled your eyes just now, are you annoyed?
What do you mean?
There. You did it again. I have no idea why you keep on rolling your eyes
What do you mean?

What do you mean?
Now you locked yourself in the bathroom. Jesus Christ, Jill
What do you mean?
We’re gong to be late for dinner with my parents
They were really looking forward to this. It’s my mother’s birthday.
What do you mean?

What do you mean?
Who are you texting in there?
Are you fucking that guy from work?
What do you mean?
Don’t play dumb. Are you?
What do you mean?

Be honest with me. It’s the one who drove you home today, isn’t it?
What do you mean?
I’m buying a goddamn boat
What do you mean?
I’m not drunk, you’re drunk
What do you mean?

What do you mean?
I’m just gonna lay down here on the floor
The only person I trust is Johnnie Walker
What do you mean?

What do you mean?
I don’t care anymore
The room is spinning

What do you mean?
Oh, no. I just fell when I tried to get up
I just got really hurt
What do you mean?
Oh, now you come out of the bathroom
Yes, I was pretending about being drunk
I wanted you to come out of the bathroom
What do you mean?

Yeah yeah

Hey listen
Instead of going to dinner with my parents
Let’s just have sex

What do you mean?
What do you mean?
