If I Were a Boy - Beyoncé 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 then 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 its broken
So they'd think that I was sleeping alone
I'd put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she'd be faithful
Waiting 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
Cause he's taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

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 had got destroyed
But you're just a boy

    This video was released the same day when me and my first boyfriend got together. Who knew that a year later I would be listening to this song because of the heartbreak. Wow, now I'm really going to buy this video. Beyonce, you are an awesome diva :) keep it up.

    You've GOT to be kidding me! REAL policewomen don't dress this provocatively. Police work isn't about being pretty and attractive to your fellow officers...it's about, yes, serving and protecting, and staying safe, yet getting the bad guys. I feel that this gives REAL women on the police force a bad name. Way to go Beyonce. Once again, you prove that you don't live in the real world and really don't have a clue.
