"Breakin' Dishes" as written by and Terius Youngdell/stewart Nash....
I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am

He been gone since three thirty
And coming home lately at three thirty
I'm super cool I've been a fool
But now I'm hot and baby you gone get it
Now I ain't tripping ah! I ain't twisting ah!
I ain't demented ah, but just a lil' bit
I'm kicking asses I'm taking names
I'm on flame don't come home babe

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Oh-oh)
I ain't gon' stop until I see police and lights
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight a man

A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

I'm still waiting, come through the door
I'm killing time, you know bleaching your clothes
I'm roasting marshmallows on the fire
And what I'm burning is your attire
I'm getting restless
I'm getting tested
And I can't believe he's always out every night and never checks in
Is he cheating? Man I don't know
I'm looking around for something else to throw

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Uh-huh)
I ain't gon' stop until I see police and lights (Uh-huh)
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight

A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

I don't know who you think I am (I am)
But I really don't give a damn right now
If you don't come I'mma huff and puff and
Blow this, blow this uh,
Blow this, blow this,
I'mma blow this, blow this
Blow this, blow this,
I'mma blow this, blow this
Blow this house, house down
Dishes breaking, dishes breaking

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Uh-huh)
I ain't gon' stop until I see police and lights (Uh-huh)
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight a man tonight
I'm a fight

A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

Breaking, breaking, breaking
Dishes, dishes, dishes

    General CommentAnother woman scorned song.

    I actually like it though. Nice beat, and Rihanna portrays the message of this song, being angry, with her vocals.

    Its a "my man is never home & I'm pissed off" song.

    General CommentExactly. I just have to say, the way she sings it really conveys the anger. It's very satisfying. Pleasantly surprised, I didn't suspect that she'd come out with something like this, but i like.

    General CommentI really like this song, it's funnny. It's about a woman that gets tired of his boyfriend because he does watever he wants and doesn't care for their relationship.

    General CommentTwo years after she recorded this song, one of its lyrics "I ain't gon' stop until I see police lights, I'm a fight a man tonight..." sadly proved to be prophetic, when Rihanna's boyfriend Chris Brown attacked her in his car in February 2009. The two singers started arguing after leaving a pre-Grammy party and after Rihanna threw Brown's car keys out the window, he launched into her, leaving the Umbrella star bruised and battered.

    General CommentThis song is about the anger she has to deal with because her boyfriend is always staying out late and doesn't have enough time for her.
