Do Something Good (stylized as DO SOMETHING GOOD) is a song by Zayn Malik. It appears as the nineteenth track on the Target edition of his debut solo studio album, Mind of Mine.

The lyrics of the reggae song "Do Something Good" involve drugs and video games.[1]

Background

The reggae-tinged “Do Something Good” is one of two Target-exclusive bonus tracks from Mind of Mine. It also shifts the stylistic precedent for song titling — whereas the album’s “main tracks” feature alternating capitalization, and the bonus tracks are in all-caps, the Target bonus tracks are capitalized “normally.”

The song features a distinctive female backing chorus to augment the sharp horns weaving in and out of the rhythm.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I smoke two joints before I play video games
Then I get 10,000 points
I flew around this planet only yesterday
Because I am an alien

[Pre-Chorus]
I seen this galaxy and Milky Way
I even watched the sun
I got a J givin' me my light away
Because I don't get drunk

[Chorus]
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Let's do something good today, before it's too late, this is our day
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Said let's do something good today, before it's too late, before it's too late

[Verse 2]
Three more joints and I'm still playing video games
Can't even count the points
Play it 'til my fingers bleed
Who said that tomorrow will be guaranteed?

[Chorus]
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Let's do something good today, before it's too late, this is our day
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Said let's do something good today, before it's too late, before it's too late

[Bridge]
And then we fly away and we ain't running out of fuel
I'm running off of you, I'm running off of you
And then we fly away and then we fly away and we ain't running out of fuel
I'm running off of you, I'm running off of you and then we fly

[Chorus]
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Let's do something good today, before it's too late, this is our day
Let's do something good today, before it's too late
Said let's do something good today, before it's too late, before it's too late
