Lyrics

Dani:
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 milk 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

Lisa:
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

Dani:
If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was readin’ alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
'Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ for me to come home
To come home

Lisa:
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’d forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

Dani:
But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand

Lisa:
Yeah, you don’t understand, oh
How it feels to love a girl someday
You 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 (wanted)
'Cause he's taken you for granted (granted)
And everything you had got destroyed

Dani:
But you’re just a boy

  2. Description from video reads: "You guys seem to be lovin' Dani's voice so far, so I thought we'd cover this song so you can hear her extremely low range :) Dani sings the verses, I'm the choruses and bridge. Enjoy!"
