there’s a thug in my life lyrics – rihanna

gotta keep it on the down low
i’ll never let my mama know
only call him on my cell phone, only see him after dark
i met him on the 6 train, just the way he said my name
the brotha had a lot a game, had me open from the start
he scoops me up in his ride, friday about a quarter to 9
so fly and so fine, and i’m so glad that he’s all mine

[hook] there’s a thug in my life, how’ma gonna tell my mama
she gonna say it ain’t right, but he’s so good to me
there’s a thug in my life, and its gonna cause crazy drama
i’m gonna see him tonight, i’m gonna give him everything

i know his crew is kinda shady
sometimes it gets kinda crazy
but he treats me like a lady, gives me everything i need
i don’t care who’s hating on me, ’cause every night he’s waiting on me
he’s got mad personality, a side they never see
my friends tell me to slow down, but everytime that he’s around
my heart’s on lock down, i feel love and i’m so proud

[hook]
there’s a thug in my life, how’ma gonna tell my mama
she gonna say it ain’t right, but he’s so good to me
there’s a thug in my life, and its gonna cause crazy drama
i’m gonna see him tonight, i’m gonna give him everything

[rap]
thug in ya life baby
one in a million thats what you are to me
and i know your friends say i’m rough
but i still got that tender touch just to make u giggle and blush
but ya mom does not approve of us
she needs to be a lot more understanding
’cause all i have for you is thug loving and loving thats all i’m giving

[bridge]
mama, don’t worry, i’m not in a hurry
i wont disappoint you, i wont make you sorry
he’s the one for me (he’s all i ever need)
we’ll be together from now till forever
i know its the real thing, if you don’t whatever
and i know its meant to be

[hook]
there’s a thug in my life, how’ma gonna tell my mama
she gonna say it ain’t right, but he’s so good to me
there’s a thug in my life, and its gonna cause crazy drama
i’m gonna see him tonight, i’m gonna give him everything

[bridge]
mama, don’t worry, i’m not in a hurry
i wont disappoint you, i wont make you sorry
