[Verse 1]
                    Am     F    
If I were a boy 
C         G                 Am     F     C     G
  even just for a day
      Am           F                  C
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
        G                          Am        F     C (pause)
And throw on what I wanted

                                    Am    F    C      
Drink beer with the guys
G                             Am     F    C     G
And chase after girls
     Am                          F
I'd kick it with who I wanted
            C                 G                        Am
And I'd never get confronted for it
C
'Cause they stick up for me

[Hook]
                  Am     F
If I were a boy
 C           G                      Am    F   C   G
I think I could understand
           Am                     F
How it feels to love a girl
    C                      G 
I swear I'd be a better man

(Same chordal progression is repeated for the entire song)
[Verse 2]
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

[Hook]
                  Am     F
If I were a boy
 C           G                      Am    F   C   G
I think I could understand
           Am                     F
How it feels to love a girl
    C                      G 
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

[Bridge]
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

[Hook 2]
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...

Lazy tab: only parts of the lyrics, and the bridge is missing completely.
