Verse 1:
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


Pre Hook:
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


Hook:
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

Little 22
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 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 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!
& 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? Ehh


Rum bum bum bum, Rum bum bum bum, Rum bum bum bum
Me say one man down (& wah me say)
Rum bum bum bum, Rum bum bum bum, Rum bum bum bum
Then me went down town


Cause now I'mma criminal, criminal, criminal
Oh lorda mercy, now I am a criminal
Man Down

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