Boys Will Be Boys

Album: Future Nostalgia (2020)
  • (Boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    (Boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women (hey)
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women

    It's second nature to walk home before the sun goes down
    And put your keys between your knuckles when there's boys around
    Isn't it funny how we laugh it off to hide our fear
    When there's nothin' funny here
    Sick intuition that they taught us so we won't freak out
    We hide our figures, doin' anythin' to shut their mouths
    We smile away to ease the tension so it don't go south
    But there's nothin' funny now

    When will we stop saying things?
    'Cause they're all listening
    No, the kids ain't alright
    Oh, and they do what they see
    'Cause it's all on TV
    Oh, the kids ain't alright

    Boys will be, boys will be (boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be, boys will be boys (boys will be boys, but)
    But girls will be women
    Boys will be, boys will be (boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be, boys will be boys (boys will be boys, but)
    But girls will be women (hey)
    Boys will be, boys will be (boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be, boys will be boys (boys will be boys, but)
    But girls will be women
    Boys will be, boys will be (boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be, boys will be boys (boys will be boys, but)
    But girls will be women

    (Oh boy, oh boy)
    (Oh boy, oh boy)
    (Boy, boy, boy)
    But girls will be women

    (Boy, oh boy)
    (Oh boy, oh boy)
    (Boy, boy, boy)
    But girls will be women

    (Boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    (Boys will be boys, but girls will be women)
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women (hey)
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women
    Boys will be boys, but girls will be women

    (Oh boy, oh boy)
    (Oh boy, oh boy)
    (Boy, boy, boy)
