Tyler, The Creator - BOYFRIEND Lyrics




[Tyler, The Creator & Charlie Wilson:]
Compliments to smiles, or light to sun
This feels natural, no substitute, not one
Can't buy you the world, but my time is yours
Let you roll the dice, but I made my choice
Da na na na na duh duh, na
Da na na na duh duh
Da na na na na duh duh, na
Gassin', don't be gassin' (I just want you to know)
Gassin', don't be gassin' (You're so special)
Gassin', don't be gassin'

[Tyler, The Creator:]
Baby, you gotta, you gotta understand (Oh)
Ain't no time (Uh), to play these games
You hear me? (Uh)

Hey, hey, aw, this shit is money now
Say, say, aw, my heart is pumping now (Uh)
Hey, hey, aw, we're getting funky fuck what they
Say, say, aw, we should be together baby
Never again, never again (Uh)
I'm tryna be more than a friend, my heart's on the run
I wanna be your boyfriend, cause you are the one
I wanna be your boyfriend, I know you're the one
I wanna be your boyfriend, they don't understand
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, Cuban link with the hand
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, and tell you what's up
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, but it's damaging, 'cause, 'cause

We the same (Woo, woo, woo, woo)
Alright (Uh, woo, woo, woo, woo)
Alright (Ooh, woo, woo, woo, woo)
Alright (Uh, woo, woo, woo, woo)

I invested too much time
I done spent all of my money (Oh)
You need to read between the lines (Oh)
And stop pretending shit's funny (Yo)

Hey, hey, aw, this shit is money now (Uh)
Say, say, aw, my heart is pumping now (Uh)
Hey, hey, aw, we're getting funky fuck what they (Oh)
Say, say, aw, we should be together baby (Uh)
Never again, never again (Uh)
I'm tryna be more than a friend, my heart's on the run
I wanna be your boyfriend, cause you are the one
I wanna be your boyfriend, I know you're the one
I wanna be your boyfriend, they don't understand
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, Cuban link with the hand
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, and tell you what's up
I'm tryna be your boyfriend, but it's damaging, 'cause, 'cause

We the same (Woo, woo, woo, woo)
We the same (Woo, woo, woo, woo)
We the same (Woo, woo, woo, woo)
We the same (One hundred percent)

[The Creator, Charlie Wilson & Santigold:]
Gassin', don't be gassin'
Gassin', don't be gassin' (I've seen all your cars, ooh, we are)
Gassin', don't be gassin' (I've seen all your cars, ooh, we are, ooh)
Gassin', don't be gassin' (I've seen all your cars, ooh, we are)
Gassin', don't be gassin' (I've seen all your cars, ooh, we are, ooh)

  9. The Creator

  10. Thulium

    Is he gay tho

  11. ĢØŁF WÄŅĞ

    When the piano came in I started singing sometimes...

  12. Joe Maka

    If this gets taken down I'm going down with it

  13. Freemanzz

    I find it hard to believe this was made by Tyler and not a fan because the chords and everything have been taken by ‘sometimes...’ and I wouldn’t believe Tyler would regurgitate sounds like that again. IMO ;(

    Lamonte coolcat

    Freemanzz This was on the IGOR CD and vinyl though

    Freemanzz

    Oh I never realised but you get why I didn’t believe it at first

  14. The Odden

    This is the piano from “EXACTLY WHAT YOU RUN FROM YOU END UP CHASING”

    Jules

    The Odden That’s the outro for Boyfriend

  15. Donald Hand

    This era of his sound is so incredible

  16. R10T

    this is the beat for exactly what you run from and by beat i mean the cords

    Jules

    R10T it’s the outro of Boyfriend.

    R10T

    Jules OH SHIT YOU ARE SO RIGHT

  17. krasa

    exactly what you run from you end up chasing

  18. Spuzz

    First song I listened to in 2020

  19. DAN NA

    Bless your soul

  20. Elisa

    Who gonna drop the lyrics 😔

    Jules

    Elisa Genius’ Automated Bot

  21. [ m a i r e ]

    why'd tyler take it down? I never heard about it

    Jules

    [ m a i r e ] he didn’t took it down. He only wants to listen for vinyl releases

    [ m a i r e ]

    @Jules ohh I see

  22. acxadental

    bro when 2:58 hits... oh my god

  23. Austin Emerson

    this shit is crystal meth to my ears

  24. Jimothy Brown

    his most underrated/under heard track by far imo

  25. Luke Whitten

    I've had the vinyl for a month and I only recently figured out this existed.

  26. KimiDesu

    I want to listen to IGOR for the first time again on a hot summer night.

  27. Aqua Necromancer

    The washed out, spiky guitar on this song is insane. Totally brings this song together.

    Jules

    Aqua Necromancer I know. P.S. I’m blonded, Kanye version.

  28. spit.

    the feeling this song gives m ears>>>>>>>>.

  29. Limitless

    EXACTLY WHAT YOU RUN FROM YOU END UP CHASING

  30. ITS YA BOI CARDIN *_*

    here before tiktok ruins it

  31. Alexandre Willstrop

    yooo this is litterally sometimes continued and you can sing the glitter lyrics over. Fucking beautiful

  32. Aiden Haremza

    420th comment so i think i’m special

  33. Aiden Haremza

    i’ve always wanted an extended version of sometimes

  34. Empty

    Damn this hits hardddd

  35. Steve Jenson

    As much as i like this track I feel as that its not ideal for IGOR

    Spuzz

    Yea something about it feels different

    Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West

    Spuzz I feel like the differentness would make it fit in more, add to it’s crazy and weird aesthetic

    Spuzz

    Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West Yeah that actually makes a lot of sense. Something a lil different could totally add to Igor and fit in really well.

  36. Saul Baez

    Category: EDUCATION 💀

  37. Sayna Niculene

    Here before 100k

  38. depression

    i miss my fucking ex

    ben is jamin

    Everything will work out.

  39. Unknown User

    Where in the album does this song belong ?

    Jules

    Unknown User After I THINK. It’s only on vinyl releases

    Mickle

    It replaces Exactly What You Run From You End Up Chasing

  40. Darian Love

    Before 1 million and how’d you get the bonus track?!

  41. Tyler, the Destroyer

    The piano parts sound a lot like the "Sometimes..." track. It's a nice reference.

  42. Noah Moreno

    here before 100k views

  43. Ur boi Hoodin

    okay my opinion is that the first part of the song is good until the beat switches than the song goes down hill🧟‍♂️

  44. John Ricotta

    I played the IGOR vinyl and was expecting EXACTLY WHAT YOU RUN FROM YOU END UP CHASING and I was ecstatic to hear this track instead

  45. kevin felices

    Before 1 mil

  46. Blackem schmackem

    The change in pitch of the synth-like sound through out the song @2:30 is my absolute favorite thing about this song.

    Kybie Wright

    Blackem schmackem That shit is so fire

  47. Edward Kelly

    First time hearing this

  48. Musti A.

    The first 40sec and the last minute....

  49. Chico Builds

    Why this ain’t on Spotify

    Mickle

    Chico Builds because Tyler added it after the album dropped. It’s on the physical releases of the album though

  50. Steve Reyes

    This was way better than EWYRFYEUC

  51. IAN FILHO DO PG

    Não sabia da existência dessa música dele, vlw ai mano por postar.

  52. Sienna Rodriguez

  55. [KORIN]

    Is some of this from sometimes

  56. Christian Brann

    Dude I hope if Igor ever gets rereleased on streaming services this track is on there

  57. SiR_StReTcHmArKs

    Glad this was left off Igor kinda cool it’s on the vinyl tho

  58. koastwrld

    I can finally listen to this again let’s go

  59. Shrek Gelato

    The start reminds me so much of Flower Boy and then it gets out there with the HEY HEY kicking in, like it's supposed to transition between albums. I love it.

  60. Carson

    This sounds kinda like glitter

    Carson

    @why do you care well it reminds me of it

    _ Beferrr

    Actually it'd be more close to "sometimes..." although they're similar and still from the same album

    Tommy Tootsters

    _ Beferrr sometimes is from flower boy. This is an Igor bonus track.

    _ Beferrr

    @Tommy Tootsters no shit it's from flower boy. Tf did you try to be bright here or what? Read the comments before making your own

    _ Beferrr

    @Tommy Tootsters btw he beginning of this song literally had the same sample / notes.

  61. jerzey otwelve

    This song has the same chords as sometimes...

  62. Aleksei Brusilov

    Time for a takedown

  63. ctb kai

    3:04 sounds like when your hatching a furby 😭😭

  64. Himawari San

    This was such a pleasant surprise when I played my copy of IGOR

  65. rot pop

    the self control it must have taken to not but this banger on igor is so commendable

  66. Agustin Arias Vargas

    I want this on Spotify 😭

  67. Noli

    Who else searched for a IGOR vinyl, and found this in the tracklist instead of exactly what you run from?

  68. Yahir Sok Amador

    he ain't gay his boyfriends gay

  69. Chill Pill

    OH MY GOD IVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS TO COME BACK

  70. Rainbow Socks

    This sounds like the sequel “Sometimes” from FB

    Jonathan MAB

    Yeah exactly!!

    Gavin Squared

    @Jonathan MAB IKR!!

  71. AntiRift

    AntiRift

    [Spoken Word: Jerrod Carmichael]
    Exactly what you run from, you end up chasing. Like, you can't avoid, but just chasing it and just like trying. Giving it everything that you can. There's always an obstacle-

  76. FireSpittenKitten 12

    I don’t have to listen to this “illegally” lmao
    I got the vinyl

  77. Bríon O'Connor

    I disagree with this video existing. Tyler meant it to be physical only. Get the record

  78. Hudson Sorgi

    Sounds like the chords in the beginning of Sometimes... on flowerboy

  79. 66malthe

    holy fuck this song grew on me

  80. MrIndyCity4

    can I be your boyfriend *(girls preferably)*

  81. Afro Boi

    If you listen to I think then go right into this song after it's over it's an amazing transition

  82. ooga booga

    I'm here before 1 million views would when it does hit a million does that mean I get flexing rights?

  83. Kuba Wlodarczyk

    released on my birthday !!!!!!!!!!!! love this

  84. Blue Birdie

    Every time I came back this hoe was blocked but this time I hear it it sounds different

  85. TSN13

    i just want this entire song to be that intro

  86. vianne bozza

    dont show this one to the locals pls

  87. Grason Milam

    anybody have a fake itunes account with this song on there

  88. SCHOOL GLOBES

    Im crying rn ...

  89. Josh.

    Reminds me of sometimes and glitter...

  90. nick

    kinda feel mad that this got leaked, feel like it should be a tiddly bonus bit that only those with physical copies should be able to listen to
    seeing as that's what it is and this has already been leaked, this shit is gonna be so underrated bet

  91. MasterJ Williams

    Ok my 😩❤️

  92. ZOMONE

    My Favorite part 2:58 when it goes all nice in smooth transition vocals

  93. Sylvester Mueller

    Does this sound like "Sometimes..." to anyone?

    Rafa Velas

    Sylvester Mueller yes

  94. Jules

    For those who are reading this, Blonded was taken down. I’m using this backup to reupload all of the shit I had. Give support to this one. Don’t flag it either.

    please get me to 1k for the community tab for some news.

    rejnoah

    @Archimedes - Did Spotify unblock Boyfriend yet?

    Jules

    @rejnoah It's not on Spotify

    INDIGO T.V.

    Yaay it's unblocked!!

    rejnoah

    @Archimedes It is. It’s on Tyler’s second account, Creator the Tyler. It’s currently blocked but you were able to play Boyfriend about 1-2 weeks ago..

    Jules

    Also the claimant gets the chance to monetize this song.
