Man Down by Rihanna Lyrics

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
'fore 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-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

It's a twenty-two, I call her Peggy Sue
When she fits right down in my shoes
Whatchu expect me to do if you're playing me for a fool?
I will lose my cool and reach for my firearm
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, aye-uh

'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-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
(Criminal) In central station

Look, I'd 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 mi pull the trigger, pull the trigger, pull it pon' you
Somebody tell me what I'm gonna, what I'm gonna do?
Eh, rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
Mi say wah man down
A weh mi say
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
When mi went downtown
'Cause now I am criminal, criminal, criminal
Oh Lord, oh mercy
Now I am a criminal
Man down
Tell the judge please gimme minimal
Run out a town, none a dem cah see mi now (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

Rihanna told MTV News:

‘Man Down’ is gangsta! It comes from me trying to achieve that [vibe]. I’m super inspired by reggae music [and it] has been a part of me since I was born, and I grew up listening to it. I grew up loving it. My favorite artists are all reggae artists…..I live that culture. I never get tired of it. I can listen to reggae music all day long, and it was exciting for me to take this on as my own and do a song like this, especially with the lyrics being like that.
