If I Were A Boy lyrics

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
Because 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 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 (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 its 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 (and 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…

i downloaded this song some night ago, and from then on, i can't seem to get enough of it. naka-repeat mode nga ang music player ko sa phone. LOL. i just like the song...anybody here who likes the song like i do? raise up your hands and feet!

from listening to the song, mejo natanong ko sarili ko what would i do if i were a boy. hmm, never did i imagine or wish that i be a boy. not that i like being a girl...its just that maybe, i have a lot of questions why men are like this and that. sometimes, i wish they become a girl so they would know how we feel.

but if i'd be a boy, here are some things that i would do (to my gf or asawa...):

1. i'll be more sensitive to the feelings of others. lalo na ng gf or nililigawan ko.

2. i'll try to know everything she likes...those things that will make her smile. kahit gaano pa kababaw, basta alam kong mapapasaya ko sya, gagawin ko. lalo na kung mahal na mahal ko siya.

3. she may not be my top priority (there's my family, God, etc..) but i'll make sure she'd come first than my friends. geesh, kung hindi ko naman sya kayang isingit sa lakad namin ng barkada ko, nde na muna ako mag-gf or mag-asawa.

4. i'll make sure to remember every important date in our calendar...lalo na anniversaries. i know how mushy girls are in such occasions. swerte mo lalo kung simpleng greeting lang nanggagaling sa puso mo ok na ang mahal mo. buti nga hindi humihingi ng kung ano anong nde mo kayang ibigay. matakot ka na pag nagdemand yan ng LV or burberry bag sa twing anniversary or monthsarry nyo.

5. i'll surprise her in any way i can. just to make her feel how important she is to me. i'll give her time and attention she deserves.

6. i won't take her for granted...ever! i know how it feels. so tamaan na ako ng kidlat pag pinaramdam ko pa to sa babae kung maging lalaki man ako.

7. hindi ko idadaan sa inom ang away namin. i'll talk to her and settle kung ano man ang gulo namin. from my experience, the more na kinakalimutan ang problem ng walang usap, lalong tumatagal ang issue. sooner or later, it'll pop up again. e ano kung paulit-ulit sha pag kausap ko? ang mahalaga, masettle ang problema. kahit gaano pa ako kaantok or kainis. kung kinakailangang himayin ang issue, gagawin ko. wag lang sha hayaang matulog ng masama ang loob.

8. pag napasama ko loob nya, i'll say sorry and make it up to her. at hindi lang dun matatapos yun. i'll try so hard not to make her feel disappointed again.

9. i'll make her feel that i always want to be with her. lalo na pag alam kong gusto din nya akong makasama. kahit magmukha pa kaming magkadikit na santol. ang mahalaga masaya siya at masaya ako...masaya kaming magkasama.

10. hindi ko siya iiwan at babalikan na lang kung kelan ko gusto. hindi naman siya basahan di ba? hinding hindi ko sha sasabihan ng "saka na lang...." or "sa ibang araw na lang...." i'll make sure she'd preserve her self-worth

11. at higit sa lahat, i'll always tell her how much i love her. kahit para na akong sirang plaka...coz i know, gusto nya yung marinig. at madali lang un gawin. all it takes is a few seconds to say it, and make her feel loved...wanted and cherished.

ikaw? what would you do if you were a boy?

    I have just read some of your posts. I would like to read the rest later, as I liked the rich language you used while writing.

    I am a writer. If you are interested in short stories and paintings, then a flying visit to my blogs would be a good idea.
