Please Leave The Abuser

TransGriot Note: I was floored but not surprised that Rihanna is allegedly reconciling with Chris Brown after their domestic violence situation that has led to felony charges for Ike, er Chris.

This unsettling news inspired my latest song rewrite. Usually, I like using my song rewrite to poke fun at situations, but not this time.

Don't Stop The Music is one of my fave Rihanna songs, but as you are about to see, the lyrics are about to get a makeover.


Please Leave The Abuser
Sung to the tune of 'Don't Stop The Music' by Rihanna


Please leave the abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser.
Please leave the abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser, abuser.

It's gettin late
You were heading over to your favorite place
Gotta get a move on 'cause you're stressed today
The long text message pissed you off that came your way
Booty call candidate (yeah)

Who knew
That Chris would soon be dressin' like a jailbird, boo
Staying with his azz should be impossible
Going back to him simply incredible
You don't have to go, don't

Do you know what he started
When you left that Grammy party
Now you're worldwide news because Chris was
Acting naughty
His hands slapping your face
It's face the music day
Please take a stand
May I suggest
Next time you carry mace

You need to put him away
Escape back to Barbados
DA gonna make him pay
He was wrong to do it
Know you hate to do this
Keep on thinking through it
Please just leave the
Please just leave the
Please leave the abuser

You need to put him away
Escape back to Barbados
DA gonna make him pay
He was wrong to do it
Know you hate to do this
Keep on thinking through it
Please just leave the
Please just leave the
Please leave the abuser

Baby were you tuned in to that Oprah show?
Don't you feel his temper ready to explode
What went on between you wasn't cool you know
This ain't a private show (oh)

Do you know what he started
When you left that Grammy party
Now you're worldwide news because Chris was
Acting naughty
His hands slapping your face
It's face the music day
Please take a stand
May I suggest
Next time you carry mace

You need to put him away
Escape back to Barbados
DA gonna make my pay
He was wrong to do it
Know you hate to do this
Keep on thinking through it
Please just leave the
Please just leave the
Please leave the abuser

Mama say mama say, Ma say sue ya
Mama say mama say, Ma say sue ya (2x)

Please leave the abuser
Please leave the abuser

Mama say mama say, Ma ma say sue ya
Mama say mama say, Ma ma say sue ya

Please leave the abuser, abuser, abuser
Please leave the abuser, abuser, abuser

You need to put him away
Escape back to Barbados
DA gonna make him pay
He was wrong to do it
Know you hate to do this
Keep on thinking through it
Please just leave the
Please just leave the
Please leave the abuser

You need to put him away
Escape back to Barbados
DA gonna make him pay
He was wrong to do it
Know you hate to do this
Keep on thinking through it
Please just leave the
Please just leave the
Please leave the abuser

Ma ma say ma ma say, Ma ma say sue ya
Ma ma say ma ma say, Ma ma say sue ya

Please leave the abuser

I read that Diddy is behind the reconciliation so you have him to thank for this.

Okay,..
A man who doesn't bother to marry the mother of his children, fathers another one while she's pregnant is going to give out relationship advice.

Spousal abuse is about 2 people's problems (not to mention their families of origin), not just the male in this case. That doesn't excuse Chris Brown (who did grow up in a highly abusive environment) but it does mean that Rihanna has just as many issues to sort out as her abusive partner does. Removing the abused partner from the relationship is just the beginning. They need to have a serious course of therapy and self-examination as to why they were in this particular relationship in the first place. I'm not placing blame, but if I were her parents, and knew anything about Chris' family history (which was available in the media) I would have had extreme issues about their relationship in the first place. But, of course, I don't know what went on behind closed doors then or now.
