Rihanna - Take A Bow Listening Lesson

Average: 4 (17 votes)

This song is full of theatre and performing arts related vocabulary, so obviously I love it. I’ve removed all this vocabulary, all you need to do is listen and put the words in the correct gaps.

Note: some of the words are used more than once.

Rihanna - Take A Bow Lyrics

Ohh, how about a round of _1_,
Hey, standing _2_
Ooh, ohh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You look so dumb right now,
Standin’ outside my house,
Tryin’ 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,
Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught,
But you put on quite a _3_(oh),
You really had me goin’,
But now it’s time to go (oh),
_4_ finally closin’,
That was quite a show (oh),
Very _5_
But it’s over now (but it’s over now),
Go on and Take a _6_, ohh..ohh

Grab your clothes and get gone (get gone),
You 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 _7_,
Please, what else is on

Don’t tell me you’re sorry ’cause you’re not (mmm),
Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught (mmm),
But you put on quite a _8_(oh),
You really had me goin’,
But now it’s time to go (oh),
_9_ finally closin’,
That was quite a show (oh),
Very _10_
But it’s over now (but it’s over now),
Go on and take a _11_, ohh

And the _12_ for the best liar goes to you (goes to you),
For makin’ me believe that you could be faithful to me,
Let’s hear your _13_ out?
