If I Were A Boy Testo Accordi per Chitarra Guitar Chords
G/B C G/B If I were a boy Am7 G/B C G/B Am7 Even just for a day G/B C I’d roll out of bed in the morning G/B Am7 G/B C G/B And throw on what I wanted and go Am7 G/B C G/B Drink beer with the guys Am7 G/B C G/B And chase after girls G/B C I’d kick it with who I wanted G/B Am7 G/B And I’d never get confronted for it C G/B Am7 Because they’d stick up for me Chorus: G/B C If I were a boy G/B Am7 G/B C G/B Am7 I think that I’d understand G/B C how it feels to love a girl G/B G/B C G/B Am7 I swear I’d be a better man G/B C G/B I’d listen to her Am7 G/B C G/B Am7 cause I know how it hurts G/B C when you lose the one you wanted G/B Am7 cause he’s taken you for granted G/B C G/B Am7 and everything you had got destroyed! (Just follow the earlier chords) verse 2: If I were a boy I would turn off my phone Tell everyone that its broken so they think that I was sleeping alone I’d put myself first and make the rules as I go cause I know that she’ll be faithful waiting for me to come home ( to come home) Chorus If I were a boy I think that 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 loose the one you wanted cause he’s taken you for granted and everything you had got destroyed! It’s a little too late for you to come back Say its just a mistake Think I forgive you like that If you thought I would wait for you You thought wrong Chorus But your just a boy You don’t understand (and 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 taken her for granted And everything that you had got destroyed But your just a boy… [Beyoncé]
