Uh huh, uh huh (yeah, Rihanna)
Uh huh, uh huh (Good Girl Gone Bad)
Uh huh, uh huh (take three, action)
Uh huh, uh huh (Hov)

No  in my stones
Let it rain, I  in the bank
Comin' down like Dow Jones
When the  come, we gone
We Roc-A-Fella
We fly  than weather
In G5's or better
You know me (you know me)
In  for  stack  for the  day
Jay, Rain Man is back
With  Ms. Sunshine, Rihanna,  you at?

You have my heart
And we'll  be  apart
Maybe in magazines
But you'll  be my star
Baby, 'cause in the dark
You can't see  cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll  share
Because

When the sun shines, we'll  together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll  be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma  it out to the end
Now that it's  more than ever
Know that we'll  have each other
You can  under my umbrella
You can  under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

These  things will  come in between
You're part of my entity, here for infinity
When the war has took its part
When the  has  its cards
If the hand is hard
Together we'll mend your heart
Because

When the sun shines, we  together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll  be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma  it out to the end
Now that it's  more than ever
Know that we'll  have each other
You can  under my umbrella
You can  under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

You can run into my arms
It's okay, don't be alarmed
Come into me (there's no  in  our love)
So gon' and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

When the sun shines, we  together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll  be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma  it out to the end
Now that it's  more than ever
Know that we'll  have each other
You can  under my umbrella
You can  under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

It's raining, raining
Ooh, baby, it's raining, raining
Baby, come into me
Come into me
It's raining, raining
Ooh, baby, it's raining, raining
You can  come into me
Come into me
It's  rain
It's  rain
Come into me
Come into me
It's  rain
It's  rain, come into me
