If I were a boy even just for a day
I'd roll out of 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 stick up for me

If I were a boy, I think I could under stand
How it feels to love a girl, I swear I'd be a better man

And I'd listen to her,'cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted, 'cause he's takin' 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'll be faithful, waitin' for me to come home,
To come home

And 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

And I'd listen to her, 'cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted, 'cause he's takin' you for 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 for give you like that
If you thought I would wait for you, you thought wrong

But you're just a boy, you don't understand, you don't understand
Oh, how it (feels to love a girl someday, you wish you were a better man
Oh, you don't listen to her, and you don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted, 'cause you're takin' her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

But you're just a boy
