Rihanna - Man Down Lyrics

Rihanna - Man Down artworkRed hair diva Rihanna just released the music video for her latest single "Man Down" hours ago. "Man Down" features Rihanna's favorite genre - Reggae and has the West Indian accent. The visuals take shooting a man as background storyline, which is a bit violent and gangsta. Just as what Rihanna has tweeted in her twitter about the video yesterday:"Its #Gritty #GULLY #Emotional #JAMRock Very strong underlying message 4 girls like me! #listentoyomama."

Here is the lyrics of Rihanna's 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
Coulda been somebody's son
And I took his heart when
I pulled out that gun

Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man Down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
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 do 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 its too late to turn back now
Don't know what I was thinking
Now hes no longer living
So Imma bout to leave town

Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
Coulda been somebody's son
And I took his heart when
I pulled out that gun

Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man Down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
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

Look I never thought do it
Never thought do it
Never thought do it
Oh gosh
What ever 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 niggas life so soon
When mi pull the trigger pull the trigger pull it pon you
Somebody tell me what I'm gonna what I'm gonna do

Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Mi say wah man down (A weh mi say)
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bumm rum bum bum bum
When mi went downtown

Cause now Imma criminal criminal criminal
Oh lord a mercy now I am a criminal

Tell the judge please gimme minimal
Run out a town none a dem cah see mi 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
