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 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
Whatchu expect me to do?
If you're playin' 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, 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 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 (criminal) in central station

Said, "I'd never thought I'd do it
Never thought I'd do it, never thought I'd 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 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 bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum
Mi say one man down and wah mi say
Rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum
When mi went downtown
'Cause now I am a criminal, criminal, criminal
Oh, lorda mercy, now I am a criminal
Man Down, tell the judge, please gimme minimal
Run outta town, none a dem can 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 in central station
