Lyrics for Rihanna – Man Down

I didn’t mean to end his life
I know it wasn’t right
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 im facing
Makes me wanna cry

Cause I didn’t mean to hurt him
Coulda been somebodies son
And I took his heart when
I pulled up 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 somebodies son
And I took his heart when
I pulled up 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 id do it
Never thought id do it
Never thought id 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 n-gga end a n-ggas life so soon
When I pull the trigger pull the trigger pull it on you
Somebody tell me what imma what imma do

Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
They say one man down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bumm rum bum bum bum
And I ran downtown

Cause now imma criminal criminal criminal
Oh lord oh mercy now I am a criminal
Man Down
Tell the judge please give me minimal
Run out of town on the Grand seminal seminal

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
