Beyonce - "If I Were A Boy" Lyrics

Beyonce -

Check out Beyonce‘s new hard-hitting ballad, “If I Were a Boy”, the first single from her upcoming as-yet-titled album.

In early September, Beyonce filmed the music video for this song in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood. She was dressed up as a NYPD police officer.

Listen to “If I Were A Boy” at or at the Z100 website. Be sure to check out the lyrics below!


If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted then go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wated
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 could turn off my phone
Tell evveryone 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)


It’s a little too late for you to come back
Say its 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
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 have got destroyed
But you’re just a boy

    THIS IS BS! This isn’t an original song by Beyonce this is a rip off from the Ciara song. Hello it came out like 1.5yrs ago, it’s about this EXACTLY.

    No wonder she recorded 90 songs for this album, most of them were probably just songs handed to her to record, all this crap about her being a writer and producer is just marketing.

    btw: ciara is much better than beyonce!
