[Intro]
Em  D Am7 B7
 
 
[Verse 1]
Em
  How can it be? You and me
D               Am7
Likely meant to be, can't unsee it
 
But I don't wanna fuss, no see
    Em
I'm usually so unproblematic
       D
So independent
        Am7
Tell me why
 B7
'Cause the boy is mine, mine
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                  D    Am7
Somethin' about him is made for somebody like me
 
Baby, come over, come over (Oh my)
    Em
And God knows I'm tryin'
                    D            Am7   B7
But there's just no use, can't deny it
 
 
[Chorus]
           Em
The boy is mine
 
I can't wait to try him
    D              Am7
Let-let's get intertwined
 
The stars, they aligned
           Em
The boy is mine
 
Watch me take my timе
  D                Am7
I can't believe my mind
            B7
That boy is divinе
 
He's mine
 
 
[Verse 2]
Em
  Please know this ain't what I planned for
D                       Am7
Probably wouldn't bet a dime or my life on
 
There's gotta be a reason why
   Em                                                D
My girls, they always come through in the sticky situations
         Am7
Say it's fine (It's fine)
B7
Happens all the time, -ime
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                  D    Am7
Somethin' about him is made for somebody like me
 
Baby, come over, come over (Oh my)
    Em
And God knows I'm tryin'
                    D            Am7   B7
But there's just no use, can't deny it
 
 
[Chorus]
           Em
The boy is mine
 
I can't wait to try him
    D              Am7
Let-let's get intertwined
 
The stars, they aligned
           Em
The boy is mine
 
Watch me take my timе
  D                Am7
I can't believe my mind
            B7
That boy is divinе
 
He's—
 
 
[Bridge]
Am7                       Bm
   And I know it's simply meant to be
    C
And I, I take full accountability for all these years
Am7
Promise you I'm not usually
Bm                                 C
Like this sh*t, it's like losing me to me
      B7
But I can't ignore my heart, boy
 
 
[Chorus]
           Em
The boy is mine (Oh)
 
I can't wait to try him
    D              Am7
Let-let's get intertwined
 
The stars, they aligned
           Em
The boy is mine
 
Watch me take my timе
  D                Am7
I can't believe my mind
            B7
That boy is divinе
     N.C.
He's mine
