If I Were A Boy by Beyonce is a song about being taken for granted by a man after a difficult breakup of a relationship. The song provides a contrast from Beyoncé from her upbeat Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).

Fun fact! The song was originally recorded by BC Jean, one of the song’s writers, however Jean’s recording was rejected by her record company. Beyoncé also performed the song on The Oprah Winfrey Show ?? and at the 52nd Grammy Awards.

This arrangement by Andrew Wrangell is approximately grade 2 level. It’s a great song and sure to be a fantastic repertoire choice at a concert given how popular it is!

Lyrics:
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 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’d think that I was sleepin’ alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I’d know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ 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 (wanted)
Cause he’s taken you for granted (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

But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand
Yeah 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 have got destroyed
But you’re just a boy…
