It Wasn't Me - Shaggy

It Wasn't Me

"It Wasn't Me" is a 2000 number one hit song by reggae artist Shaggy, featuring Ricardo "RikRok" Ducent. It achieved a huge success in many countries, topping the charts in the US, France, UK, the Netherlands, Australia and Ireland. The song was originally never intended to be released as a single, MCA Records wanted "Dance and Shout" to be the first single released from the Hot Shot album and didn't offer other tracks to DJs. Hawaiian DJ Pablo Sato downloaded the album from "a Napster-like MP3 site he won’t name" and discovered it "was the album’s standout cut." He played the song on the radio the next day. "The phone lines lit up right away. Within a couple of days, it was our number-one requested song." The lyrics depict one man (Rikrok) asking his friend (Shaggy) what to do after his girlfriend caught him with another woman. Shaggy's advice is to deny everything with the phrase "It wasn't me", despite all evidence to the contrary. Two versions of the song and video exist: the radio and television edit version replace the lyric "Picture this; we were both butt-naked banging on the bathroom floor" with "Picture this; we were both caught making love on the bathroom floor." The song is particularly famous on the Case Western Reserve University campus for being played excessive amounts of times on the jukebox in the Leutner Commons Cafe. The song was Shaggy's first number-one hit in the U.S., and the follow-up, "Angel," also reached number one. The single also reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 4 March 2001, making the song a transatlantic chart topper. It also reached number one in Australia on April 1, 2001. It is also the 4th biggest selling single of the 21st century in the United Kingdom. Prior to this the song reached number 31 on import sales in the UK before its release.


Shaggy is the name of, at least, two artists. 1, Shaggy (born October 22, 1968, in Kingston, Jamaica as Orville Richard Burrell), is a Jamaican reggae artist who takes his nickname from his shaggy hair. He is especially notable for his distinctive sub-baritone voice. His family immigrated to the United States and they settled in the neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn, located in New York City, New York, USA. In 1988, he joined the United States Marine Corps and served during Operation Desert Storm during the Persian Gulf War. Show more ...

It Wasn't Me - Shaggy

(Yo man) Yo
(Open up man) What do you want man?
(My girl just caught me)
You let her catch you?
(I don't know how I let this happen)
With who?
(The girl next door, you know?) Man...
(I don't know what to do) Say it wasn't you
(Alright)

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

How you fi grant the woman access to your villa
Trespasser and witness while you cling on your pillow
You better watch your back before she turn into a killer
Best for you the situation not to call the beaner
To be a true player you have to know how to play
If she say a night, convince her say a day,
Never admit to a word when she say
Unless she claim a you tell her baby no way

But she caught me on the counter
(wasn't me)
Saw me banging on the sofa
(wasn't me)
I even had her in the shower
(wasn't me)
She even caught me on camera
(wasn't me)
She saw the marks on my shoulder
(wasn't me)
Heard the words that I told her
(wasn't me)
Heard the screams getting louder
(wasn't me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor

I had tried to keep her
From what she was about to see
Why should she believe me
When I told her it wasn't me

Make she know sey dat she really nuh have no right fi vex
A never you she see a make di giggalo flex
A smaddy else whe fava you ina di complex
Seein' is believin' so you better change your specs
You know she a go big up whole heap a things up from the past
All di likkle evidence you betta know fi mass
Quick pan you ansa know how fi talk
But if she back a gun you know you better run fast

But she caught me on the counter
(wasn't me)
Saw me banging on the sofa
(wasn't me)
I even had her in the shower
(wasn't me)
She even caught me on camera
(wasn't me)
She saw the marks on my shoulder
(wasn't me)
Heard the words that I told her
(wasn't me)
Heard the screams getting louder
(wasn't me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

Gonna tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
I've been listenin' to your reasonin'
It makes no sense at all
We should tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
You may think that you're a player
But you're completely lost
That's why I sing

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me
