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 clouds in my stones
Let it rain, I hydroplane in the bank
Comin' down like Dow Jones
When the clouds come, we gone
We Roc-A-Fella
We fly higher than weather
In G5's or better
You know me (you know me)
In anticipation for precipitation stack chips for the rainy day
Jay, Rain Man is back
With Little Ms. Sunshine, Rihanna, where you at?

You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby, 'cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

When the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand 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 fancy things will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for infinity
When the war has took its part
When the world has dealt its cards
If the hand is hard
Together we'll mend your heart
Because

When the sun shines, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand 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 distance in between our love)
So gon' and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

When the sun shines, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand 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 always come into me
Come into me
It's pouring rain
It's pouring rain
Come into me
Come into me
It's pouring rain
It's pouring rain, come into me

    General CommentHonestly, not one person here got it right. Some of you certainly touched on some of the meaning, but for christ sake stop culling a deeper hidden meaning from the artist who brought us "Break it off boy, cause you got me feelin' naughty. I wanna know boy, If I could be your shawty."

    She's using the umbrella as a metaphor for support, her sexuality, and more directly, her skirt. Basically, thats it. 'When you're down, come to me and i'll make you feel better by hooking up. We've been friends, and I want you anyways, so let's hook up because that'll make you feel better. I love you, so come on over so we can hook up. You'll feel better because of it.'

    Jay-Z opens by explaining situations where you're running into problems (case in point, a falling stock market) and that he needs to hook up with Rihanna because she's a high point ("good girl gone bad"). The video is to emphasize this, its why looking slutty and provocative are in fact perfectly suited to the song.

    She repeats ella and eh to subtly imply sex. Like rhythmic moaning. It also takes up space on a vocal track; is catchy albeit annoying; and characteristic of sexual innuendo. At this point, "Baby, come into me." should seem almost literal.

    So to summarize, the following lines:

    - Coming down with the Dow Jones
    - Baby cause in the dark
    You can't see shiny cars
    And that's when you need me there
    - You can stand under my umbrella
    - When the war has took it's part
    When the world has dealt it's cards
    If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
    - Come into me
    There's no distance in between our love

    When life is down, I'll make you feel better and/when we have sex.

    Don't believe me? Look at the video again. Then remember this is RIHANNA and not CUMMINGS and when you dance to this song you're GRINDING. I like the song. Really. But defining true love, deep meaning, strong bond: you all can shove it.

    Fucking stupid people.
