If i were a boy

Song Author Toby Gad Lyrics by: BC Jean Performer: Beyonce Submitted by: gestny
Capo on fret 2

If I were a boy[Em]    [C]    [G]    
Even [D]just for a day[Em]    [C]    [G]    
[D]I'd roll out of [Em]bed in the [C]morning
And [G]throw on what I [D]wanted and g[Em]o [C]    [G]    
Drink [D]beer with the gu[Em]ys [C]    [G]    
And [D]chase after girls[Em]    [C]    [G]    [D]    
I'd kick [Em]it with who I [C]wanted
And I'd [G]never get conf[D]ronted for it
[Em] 'Cause they'd [C]stick up for me[G]    

If [D]I were a bo[Em]y [C]    [G]    
I think I [D]could understa[Em]nd [C]    [G]    [D]    
How it [Em]feels to love a [C]girl
I [G]swear I'd be a [D]better man [Em]    [C]    [G]    
I?d [D]listen to he[Em]r [C]    [G]    
Cause I [D]know how it hur[Em]ts [C]    [G]    [D]    
When you [Em]lose the one you [C]wanted
Cause he's [G]taken you for [D]granted
And [C]everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy[Em]    [C]    [G]    
I would [D]turn off my pho[Em]ne [C]    [G]    [D]    
Tell [Em]everyone it's [C]broken
So they [G]think that I was [D]sleeping alo[Em]ne [C]    [G]    
I'd [D]put myself fir[Em]st [C]    [G]    
And make the [D]rules as I [Em]go [C]    [G]    [D]    
Cause I [Em]know that she'd [C]be faithful
[G]Waiting for m[D]e to come h[Em]ome [C]    [G]    

If [D]I were a bo[Em]y [C]    [G]    
I think I [D]could underst[Em]and [C]    [G]    [D]    
How it [Em]feels to love a [C]girl
I [G]swear I'd be a [D]better man [Em]    [C]    [G]    
I'd [D]listen to he[Em]r [C]    [G]    
Cause I [D]know how it hur[Em]ts [C]    [G]    [D]    
When you [Em]lose the one you [C]wanted
Cause he's [G]taken you for [D]granted
And [C]everything you had got destr[Am7]oyed    

[Am7]It's a [C]little too la[G]te for yo[D]u to come [Am]back   
Say it's [C]just a mis[Em]take   
Think I for[D]give you like [Am]that   
If you tho[C]ught I would wa[Em]it for you [D]    
You thought [C]wrong

But you're just a [Em]boy [C]    [G]    
You don't [D]understa[Em]nd (yea you [C]don't under[G]stand)[D]    
How it fe[Em]els to love a gi[C]rl, someday you'll
[G]Wish you were a[D].. better man [Em]    [C]    [G]    
You don't li[D]sten to h[Em]er [C]    [G]    
You don't [D]care how it hu[Em]rts [C]    [G]    
[D] Until you [Em]lose the one yo[C]u wanted
Cause you've tak[G]en her for granted[D]    
And [C]everything you had got destroyed
But you're just a boy[Em]    [C]    [G]    [D]    


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'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 it's broken
So they 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

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 it's just a mistake
Think I 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 (yea you don't understand)
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 had got destroyed
But you're just a boy
