If I were a boy!

I wish I were a boy
So my heart won’t be played with like a toy
So I can run from my responsibilities
And have endless joy
I could wear what I want
And say and do what I desire
Play ball with the guys
And wouldn’t have to sit and admire
I could run after girls
And have as many as I wanted
I could play with their hearts
While they come forgive me
An satisfy my parts
I’d get praise from my boys
Treat those girls’ hearts like toys
But I know how it hurts
I know how it feels
To get ignored
But to keep it real
If I were a boy
I’d treat her like my queen
I’d give her all my attention
And never grow mean
I’d promise to be faithful
Because I know I’d be grateful
If I was a girl
I’d love him forever
I’d walk down that aisle
Get on my knees
And make him my king
But if I were a boy
I’d hold her forever
Break her heart...never
She builds heart with joy
And never treats it like a toy
