Beyonce - If I Were A Boy Lyrics

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it
'Cause they'd stick up for me

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man
I'd listen to her
'Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
'Cause he's taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken
So they'd think that I was sleepin' alone
I'd put myself first
And make the rules as I go
'Cause I know that she'd be faithful
Waitin' for me to come home (to come home)

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man
I'd listen to her
'Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted (wanted)
'Cause he's taken you for granted (granted)
And everything you had got destroyed

It's a little too late for you to come back
Say it's just a mistake
Think I'd forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you're just a boy
You don't understand
Yeah, you don't understand, oh
How it feels to love a girl someday
You wish you were a better man
You don't listen to her
You don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
'Cause you've taken her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

But you're just a boy

    She work in that uniform lol

  51. Alex Pochesyuk

    I had always thought that only a chorus can be the best part of the song. But now I'm sure I'd been wrong. I even don't know how to describe this bridge 3:12. When I listen to this little piece I feel hopelessness and despair though I've never been in a relationship. I just want everyone to find him soulmate and be happy.


    Bridges are the best part of most songs

  52. Joanna Rzepka

    kobieta pozwala sobie na zbyt eksternistyczne teledyski....niepotrzebnie......................najlepiej niech śpiewa mądre tekstowo, , subtelne teledyski. To wystarczy przy tak pięknym i czułym głosie... NAPRAWDĘ

  55. jones alps

    December 2019? Anyoneee❤


    I wish I was a boy because then I may parents would listen to what I had to say. I’m a girl and my parents don’t listen to me or think about how I feel when they keep inside all of the time on the weekends. All I do is go to school then home and that’s my life every day. I wish it would change but because of this song it shows me that boys can feel the same way girls do.

  57. Russell Miller

    I love this song

  58. Spoof yt Official

    I'm a boy but when I listen this song tear drops on my heart.

  68. yamil jose collazos lozada

    First time I watched this videos I didn't undertand English too much. I just translated some words and the whole video made the works to make me get it. At the end of the video cried out. I want to be a better man that's why I don't want to envolve in whatever relationship that I will be regreating. For not getting women hurts.

  69. xnixrixx

    A man understands a boy doesn't because he only cares about himself.
