Lyrics

Jesy:
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

Jade:
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls

Little Mix:
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it
'Cause they stick up for me

Perrie (Little Mix):
If I were a boy (Hey yeah yeah)
I think I could understand (Hey yeah yeah)
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man

Leigh-Anne (with Little Mix):
It's a little too late for you to (come back)
Say it's just a mistake
Think I'd forgive you (like that)

Perrie:
If you thought I'd wait for you
You thought wrong

Jade (Perrie):
But you're just a boy
You don't understand (Yeah you don't understand oh)

Leigh-Anne:
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you'd wish you were a better man, mmhm

Perrie:
You don't listen to her
You don't care how it hurts, yeah yeah

Leigh-Anne (Perrie):
Until you lose the one you wanted (wanted)
He's takin' you for granted (granted)
And everything you have got destroyed

Jesy:
But you're just a boy
