Rihanna - Man Down

Rihanna just shot a Man Down.

I didn't mean to end his life

I know it wasn't right

I can't even sleep at night

Can't get it off my mind

I need to get out of sight

Before I end up behind bars

What started out as a simple altercation

Turned into a real sticky situation

Me just thinking on the time that I'm facing

Makes me wanna cry

Cause I didn't mean to hurt him

Could've been somebody's son

And I took his heart when

I pulled out that gun

Rum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum

Man Down

Rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum

Man Down

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station

In front of a big ol' crowd

Oh, why? Oh, why?

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station

It's a 22

I Call her Peggy Sue

When she fits right down in my shoes

What you expect me to do

If you're playing me for a fool

I will lose my cool

And reach for my fire arm

I didn't mean to lay him down

But it's too late to turn back now

Don't know what I was thinking

Now he's no longer living

So I'm ‘bout to leave town (yeah)

Cause I didn't mean to hurt him

Could've been somebody's son

And I took his heart when

I pulled out that gun

Rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum

Man Down

Rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum

Man Down

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station

In front of a big ol' crowd

Oh, why? Oh, why?

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station

And I never thought I'd do it

Never thought I'd do it

Never thought I'd do it

Oh, gosh

Whatever happened to me

Ever happened to me

Ever happened to me

Why did I pull the trigger

Pull the trigger, pull the trigger – boom

And end a nigga, end a nigga life so soon

When me pull the trigger, pull the trigger, pull it 'pon you

Somebody tell me what I'm gonna, what I'm gonna do

Rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum

Me say one man down (oh, let me say)

Rum, pum, pum, pum rum, pum, pum, pum, rum, pum, pum, pum

When we went downtown

Cause now I am a criminal, criminal, criminal

Oh, lord have mercy now I am a criminal

Man Down

Tell the judge please gimme minimal

Run out a town none a them can see me now

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station

In front of a big ol' crowd

Oh, why? Oh, why?

Oh, mama, mama, mama

I just shot a man down

In central station
