    Print the lyrics and I will tell you.

    My guess would be it's about getting wet.

    [Jay-Z]
    Ahuh Ahuh (Yea Rihanna)
    Ahuh Ahuh (Good girl gone bad)
    Ahuh Ahuh (Take three... Action)
    Ahuh Ahuh

    No clouds in my storms
    Let it rain, I hydroplane in the bank
    Coming down with the Dow Jones
    When the clouds come we gone, we Rocafella
    We fly higher than weather
    And G5’s are better, You know me,
    an anticipation, for precipitation. Stacked chips for the rainy day
    Jay, Rain Man is back with little Ms. Sunshine
    Rihanna where you at?

    [Rihanna]
    You have my heart
    And we'll never be worlds apart
    May be 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

    [Chorus]
    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 till the end
    Now it's raining more than ever
    But we'll still have each other
    You can stand under my umbrella
    You can stand under my umbrella
    (Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella 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 it's part
    When the world has dealt it's cards
    If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
    Because

    [Chorus]
    When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
    Told you I'll be here forever
    Said I'll always be a friend
    Took an oath I'ma stick it out till 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 go on and let the rain pour
    I'll be all you need and more
    Because

    [Chorus]
    When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
    Told you I'll be here forever
    Said I'll always be a friend
    Took an oath I'ma stick it out till 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
    Ooh baby it's raining
    Baby come into me
    Come into me
    It's raining
    Oh baby it's raining

    I actually found the song quite tuneful and I wouldn't switch channels if it came on.

    But whoever wrote the lyrics is surely certifiable.

    From both literal and metaphoric interpretations, it's actually about the commitment to stick out a relationship thru thick and thin as a couple. When one does well, they both do well and when times are tough for both they're there for each other. The umbrella to me is her good fortune and love shielding both of them from the torrential rains of misfortune.

    RIHANNA - UMBRELLA LYRICS

    I will say there are some of the lyrics that could be interpreted sexually, but for the most part it doesn't seem a dirty song.

    i'm always being told that it's a double entendre like kelis' "milkshake," i don't see it here though.

    seriously though, she's the only person i know who can take a 3 syllable word and turn it into a 9 syllable word.

    Huh? She didn't turn it into a 9 syllable word, the producer utilized a delay effect but that didn't change the syllables of the word, just echoed it.

    I agree until I heard marie digby sing it. I like the chorus about shining together and taking an oath about friendship, even when it rains.

    She's getting her hands on some hot songs at the moment. No great singer or dancer but when you hook up with the right people.....

    You give her too much credit. She sits in a chair and gets her make-up done. Somebody else finds the songs. You're right, she got really lucky *cough* it's not hard to get lucky when you're pretty and exotic *cough*
    This is the format for 99% of female pop artists today.

    There's more.

    Can anyone confirm or deny that Kellis was one of the naked/topless girl-candy in a Snoop-Dog video, before she got famous herself (obviously).?

    If you're thinking of the Snoop porno, that was released after she became famous

    She's a pretty puppet with sturdy strings attached. When the songs dry up she'll sink. But at the mo she's on a golden roll; Disturbia is yet another great commercial pop song. She doesnt seem to match her single success with album sales though, Ive noticed. Hmmm
