Rihanna – Work lyrics

[Hook: Rihanna]
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi
Work, work, work, work, work, work!
He see me do mi
Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt!
So me put in
Work, work, work, work, work, work
When you ah guh
Learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Meh nuh care if him
Hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurting

[Verse 1: Rihanna]
Dry me I desert him
No time to have you lurking
Him ah go act like he no like it
You know I dealt with you the nicest

Nobody touch me you not righteous
No body, text me in a crisis
I believed all of your dreams, adoration
You took my heart and my keys and my patience
You took my heart on my sleeve for decoration
You mistaken my love I brought for you for foundation
All that I wanted from you was to give me
Something that I never had
Something that you've never seen
Something that you've never been!
Mmmmm!
But I wake up and act like nothing's wrong
Just get ready fi...

[Hook: Rihanna]
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi
Work, work, work, work, work, work!
He see me do me
Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt!
So me put in
Work, work, work, work, work, work
learn learn learn learn learn !
When you a guh learn learn learn learn learn !
Before the tables turn turn turn turn turn turn
!

[Verse 2: Rihanna]
Beg you something please
Baby don't you leave
Don’t leave me stuck here in the streets, uh huh
If I get another chance to
I will never, no never neglect you
I mean who am I to hold your past against you?
I just hope that it gets to you
I hope that you see this through
I hope that you see this true
What can I say?
Please recognize I'm tryin', babe!!!
I have to

[Hook: Rihanna]
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi
Work, work, work, work, work, work!
He see me do mi
Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt!
So me put in
Work, work, work, work, work, work
When you ah guh
Learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Meh nuh care if him

[Verse 3: Drake]
Yeah, okay
You need to get done, done, done, done at work, come over
We just need to slow the motion
Don't give that away to no one
Long distance, I need you
When I see potential I just gotta see it through
If you had a twin, I would still choose you
I don't wanna rush into it, if it's too soon
But I know you need to get done, done, done, done
If you come over
Sorry if I'm way less friendly
I got niggas tryna end me, oh
I spilled all my emotions tonight, I’m sorry
Rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin'
How many more shots until you're rollin'?
We just need a face to face
You could pick the time and the place
You spent some time away
Now you need to forward and give me all the...

[Hook: Rihanna & Drake]
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He said me haffi
Work, work, work, work, work, work
He se me do mi
Dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt!
So me put in
Work, work, work, work, work, work
When you ah guh

[Outro: Rihanna]
Mmmmm, mmmmm
Mmmmm, mmmmm
Work, work, work, work, work, work
Mmmmm, mmmmm

    She sounds like she is saying wor, wor, wor, wor, work. Honestly I don't even know how this song got so popular it is actually annoying and half the words sound like they came out of the voice of someone without any teeth. It is the most irritating song I have ever heard of in my life.

    Rihanna is singing about her lover and how she will love him and how she would like him to love her back. The song is beautiful and really it's not about how it sounds it's about the message hidden in between right? Well at least it is in my opinion! The lyrics are flawless (by that I mean the meaning of the lyrics)! Rihanna has better songs I know that for sure but is a pretty good on I believe and I know that a lot of people don't agree but those people need to read farther between the lines or try to make sense of the ones on the lines! Like one of he lines is say that she will never neglect him even he does something to deserve it and another says that don't leave her alone when she needs him the most! All in all this song speaks to me in a positive way towards relationships like that one that she's in, in the song (please like if you agree with me #StopTheWorkHate) thank you for your precious time ladies and gentlemen (boys and girls if you're out there).

    I think it's about a prostitute. She's talking about, and to, her pimp (whom she loves). Meanwhile we get to hear his con-job reply. Quote "Baby don't you leave, Don’t leave me stuck here in the streets, uh huh" Why not? WELL... Because all she does on those streets is "work, work, work, work, work, work..."

    Truly a brilliant masterpiece of a song. It represents us as a society, and brings us closer together as humans beings. I can see people bonding together as a result of this song for millenniums from now. I cannot praise Rihanna enough for this, and I'm sure you'll all agree. Bravissimo!
