Verse 1:

               Em   C9    G
If I were a boy

     Dsus4          Em    C9    G   Dsus4
Even just for a day

         Em         C9
I’d roll out of bed in the morning

    G                Dsus4        Em   C9    G
And throw on what I wanted and go

Dsus4                    Em   C9    G
Drink beer with the guys

    Dsus4             Em   C9    G   Dsus4
And chase after girls

         Em            C9
I’d kick it with who I wanted

    G             Dsus4
And I’d never get confronted for it

Em             C9           G
Because they’d stick up for me

Chorus:

Dsus4           Em   C9    G
If I were a boy

        Dsus4             Em   C9    G   Dsus4
I think I could understand

       Em            C9
How it feels to love a girl

  G              Dsus4       Em   C9    G
I swear I’d be a better man

Dsus4             Em   C9    G
I’d listen to her

        Dsus4           Em   C9    G   Dsus4
Cause I know how it hurts

         Em           C9
When you lose the one you wanted

           G             Dsus4
Cause he’s taken you for granted

    C
And everything you had got destroyed

Verse 2:

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone its 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 (wanted)
Cause he’s taken you for granted (granted)

    C9                           Em7  Am
And everything you had got destroyed

Bridge:

       C          G        Dsus4        Am
It’s a little too late for you to come back

        C         Em
Say its just a mistake

           Dsus4          Am
Think I forgive you like that

       C         Em                Dsus4
If you thought I would wait for you

    C
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

    C
And everything you had got destroyed

                     Em C9 G Dsus4
But you're just a boy…
