If I Were A Boy Lyrics

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
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
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
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 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
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

Her song is true.. boys don't understand how a girl really feels..they just play with our feelings.. we girls aren't toys to play with.. sometimes i do wish i was a boy.. things would be different....

hey its ariana grande and to me this song means shes putting herself in his shoes and treating him how he treats her everyday and saying she would be a way better guy than him but he doesnt realize or care how she feels when hes ignoring her and always expecting her to do everything.

Talk about being on somebody's shoes. If men and women would switch roles, they'd be able to understand each other's side and know where they're coming from. Reminds me of the Koreanovela SecretGarden

hey you guys its a good song and its not sexist because she obviously is writting about the guy she loves and wishes he could just do mire...she isnt saying that all guys are just that way, a few are.

hey this song has an important message which i think comes across in the video rather than the song. it is sayin that things are the same for men and women if men do something that has no consequences
