Backstreet Boys - Boys Will Be Boys Lyrics

Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (hey)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys

You've got something
So incredible in my eyes
And my heart (and my heart)
It starts pumpin' (pumpin')
Whenever you're around
The whole world's upside down baby
But I try to get closer
And you always push me away
You tell me it's much too soon
But I just can't help it
I always gotta make a play

Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (hey hey)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Baby, boys will be boys

All my senses
Go right into overdrive
Oh my defenses
I'm never gonna hope
I always gotta lose control
And I hear you say
That you think that we should wait
And I can't hold on anymore
My body's callin' for you
So please don't hesitate

Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (you oughta know by now baby)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh (oh baby)
Boys will be boys
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh (oh oh)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (you oughta know by now baby)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (I gotta do what I gotta do baby)
Go go go...

And I hear you say
That you think that we should wait
And I can't hold on anymore
My body's callin' for you
So please don't hesitate
My body's callin' for you
So please don't hesitate

Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be be boys (boys will be boys)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (you oughta know by now baby)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh (oh oh yeah)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Boys will be boys (you know I gotta do what I gotta do baby)
Oh ooh oh ooh oh oh
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Baby, boys will be boys (boys will be boys)

  18. BWL Asaad

    As I was born 1988 I thought that nowadays you need some video footage to bring these songs to life. But this song reminds me of what it only takes..........a great voice.

  46. VambzBat

    Why am I getting Kazaam vibes?

    Jewbacco's tobacco

    I am too but I don't remember it being in the movie. Then again, I know I heard it and Kazaam keeps popping in my mind.

    Andres Castaneda

    Jewbacco's tobacco It was in the movie, but it was the remixed version

  47. catocapu


  48. Mary Akrivopoulou

  49. sara fenech

  50. David P

    Hi [email protected] haiya

  51. Sarah Sarah

    you still the number one

  52. Sarah Sarah

    love you😚😚😚😚😚

  53. noemistephanie93

    I could totally imagine the video of them dancing and also with girls in it! This song coulda totally been a major hit for them back in the 90s! What a shame that it wasn't, such a waste of a perfectly good song :(


    noemistephanie93 I'm really glad you like this song. I like how it has a hip-hop influence, it shows that they would've done well as a hip-hop group. The hip-hop element stripped away as their career went on


    @MusicLover_KB Do you think BSB should return to their R&B roots, Kobe?


    @itsjemmabond I mean yes but not completely. The song Breathe on DNA went back to that in a way but yeah I'd like to hear more of that style from them.


    @MusicLover_KB OK. There's a reason Lady Gaga won that Grammy instead of them at the Grammys this year. Don't Go Breaking My Heart was nearly 100% production, we couldn't hear their voices that well. Lady Gaga, on the other hand...

    Ike N

    @MusicLover_KB Courtesy of Mr. Pearlman's NKTOB II desires. The debut single really should've been Quit Playing Games (rec. Jan 95) or 'Break Your Heart (rec Apr' 95), in August 1995.

    That was a very R&B meets pop song and the latter, could've given All-4-One some competition. I guess the egotistic and Europop WGIGO was more iconic to go with, but America wasn't feeling that style yet.

  54. noemistephanie93

    Wow I never heard this song before! Is this an unreleased track or was it on another version of their debut album?

    Andres Castaneda

    noemistephanie93 It was on the European version of their debut album

    Tami Okoro Dedeh

    'Red' album release.

  60. Sarah Sepanski

    "I hear you say that you think that *we should wait*. And I can't hold on anymore, *my body's coming for ya* so please don't hesitate."
    So sexy when Brian says that. Lol I wish his body would come for me. ;) If ya know what I mean
    lol He's my favorite. Love his voice. <3


    Sarah Sepanski i think it's a "joke" lol i totally got it :/

    Sarah Sepanski

    I know, I'm bein annoying xD Just messing with her. Picture my comment being said in the most friendly way possible. 8D


    @Sarah Sepanski Just read this. Yes, I love Howie, but I know my limits; married men are a no-no. Besides he's too short!

    Sarah Sepanski

    @itsjemmabond Welp. Lol Sorry not sorry. XD Plus I know I'll never have a chance with any of them.
    1) they're married
    2) I'm 18 sooo
    Also I was a Brian girl for like a hot second. But I've been obsessed with Nick for like the past yr and a half. He's amazing.. *sighs* 😍💙

  61. Ka RS

    Nick's voice is life

    Sarah Sepanski

    Oh my God, right? So angelic and passionate

    Izaan ur rehman

    Big fan of Nick but Brian's voice is best in this song and he's singing the most and this song is almost Brian.

  81. Dhani Lomuscio

    I just wanna go back to the 90s and never ever get to the 2000s live 1990-1999 over and over and over......

    J Crash

    You're opinion is totally irrelevant for this lol. You was born in 93 meaning that you missed out on the glory days of music which was from the 50s-80s. How in the hell can you include the 90s and 00s as the "peak" of music lol? You missed out on great shit. You missed out on Michael Jacksons era which was the 80s. By the time you was growing MJ was way past his prime and his career went downhill big time

    J Crash

    90s sucked


    No it didn't, but hey, to each their own
