    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 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.
    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

    As a boy the part where she mentions how “the boys” would stick up for her really gets to me as it’s so true, guys have some weird “‘mateship” ability where they always have their friends backs. Girls just don’t, turning on their friends all the time, or stabbing them in the back. For a male friendship is almost sacred. I would hate to be a women and have to experience a world where that’s not the case.

    [Verse 1]
    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 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
    [Chorus 1]
    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
    [Verse 2]
    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'd know that she'd be faithful
    Waitin' for me to come home
    To come home

    [Chorus 1]
    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 (Wanted)
    'Cause he's taken you for granted (Granted)
    And everything you had got destroyed
    [Bridge]
    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
    [Chorus 2]
    But you're just a boy
    You don't understand
    (Yeah, you don't understand, oh)
    How it feels to love a girl
    Someday, you'll 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...

    If she were a boy she wouldn't understand women.
    Interestingly enough, women do all the things she talks about in this song.

      12 year old white girls don’t even know who she is these days. I work at my countries largest afterschool care (380+ kids per day) and we have portable speakers connected to tablets with Spotify for them to listen to music and they never play Beyoncé.
