Song lyrics
Oh-Oh, how 'bout a round of applause?
Yeah, standing ovation
Ooh-Ooo-Whoa-Oh-Yeah, Yeah, Yeah-Yeah-Yeah

You look so dumb right now
Standing outside my house
Trying to apologize, you're so ugly when you cry
Please, just cut it out

Don't tell me you're sorry 'cause you're not
And Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught

But you put on quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Really had me going
But now it's time to go (Ooh Whoa)
Curtain's finally closing

That was quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Very entertaining
But it's over now (But it's over now)
Go on and take a bow, Oh, Oh-Oh-Oh

Grab your clothes and get gone (Get gone)
Ya better hurry up, before the sprinklers come on (Come on)
Talkin 'bout "Girl I love you you're the one"
This just looks like a rerun, please, what else is on?

And don't tell me you're sorry 'cause you're not (MMM-MMM)
Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught

But you put on quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Really had me going
But now it's time to go (Ooh Whoa)
Curtain's finally closing

That was quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Very entertaining
But it's over now (But it's over now)
Go on and take a bow

Oh-Oh-Oh, and the award for
The best lie goes to you (Goes to you)
For making me, believe, that you, could be
Faithful, to me let's, hear your speech now

How 'bout a round of applause?
A standing ovation

But you put on quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Really had me going
Now it's time to go (Ooh Whoa)
Curtain's finally closing

That was quite a show (Ooh Whoa)
Very entertaining, Hey Yeah
But it's over now (But it's over now)
Go on and take a bow, Oh-Oh, but it's over now

Its Not So Good
Rihanna can Do Better !!
I Like The Rhythm The Melody The Instruments And The Vocal

" You Look So Ugly When You Cry "

Good song. Except the intro, I'd have liked a bit more of applause when she says the beginning, instead of hearing the piano.

You guys wouldn't know good lyrics if they came gift wraped in clear plastic with a label. The whole song is sung from a broken heart of a woman whose man has betrayed her. ( I dunno if this is autobiographical or not, i don't care). Her man, who was once strong and handsome has reduced himself to a snivlling wimp by his action. The things that she was attracted to in him are now repulsive to her because of his infidelity. No I'm not a fan, my dorta wanted the words otherwise i wouldn't even be looking at this part of the site.

wow,everybody's clowing the lyrics,but i like them.comparing someone's half-baked apology to a second-rate acting performance works for me.

And this has to be the best her vocals have ever sounded.

I agree the lyrics are kind of sucky especially the "Award for best lie" part. This song still rocks though

This song needs better lyrics!

I could probably write a song like this in a couple of minutes, and too bad though, this would have been a good song if it had well written lyrics with complex, meaningful words.

i love the song, i agree the lyrics has some stupid moments but i think the song is nicely produced. Excellent rhythm, catchy sounds, perfectly mixed.

In the pop/r&b context this is a remarkable song. Rihanna's voice may sound a little nasal, but is the way she sounds in all her songs, is just the way her voice is. I mean, just as britney may sound like she is havin an orgasm everytime she sings a note. lol

i cant stand the bad reviews, complaining about that the song is playing a lot in the radio? i mean, thats just a sign of a successful hit, so deal with it.

She was better with her calypso-type music
Her voice isn't really that pleasant, and the song's below mediocre
Why does this happen to so many of these stars?

i actually cant stand rihanna but of all the songs she has ever done, this is the best one that i have heard her sing. it beats umbrella any day of the week.

having said that the manic street preachers do an awesome version of umbrella, apart from the ella ella ella eh eh eh bit.
