If I Were a Boy…


The first time I saw people put the title of this song on their YM status, I wouldn’t care too much of it. But things changed when, one day, a  radio in my car aired this beautiful song.  Suddenly, it  impressed me a lot,  not just by the beat of the music but also by its lyrics. Especially when Beyonce sang the song with her breathtaking vocal performance, exquisitely emotive, mournful and mature, the song was like having its own soul. However,  the inspiration behind the famous song was so simple that I found it quite interesting.

B.C Jean is the broken heart behind the song “If I Were a Boy,” which Beyonce Knowles performs.  B.C Jean  is  a singer and song writer. One day, the 21-year-old and producer Toby Gad were strolling in Times Square when the former saw hot dogs that enticed her being peddled on the street. According to Del Mar Times, “Jean was lamenting about how she was trying to stay away from it and noted how if she were a boy, she could probably eat one without regrets. That led to her musing on how if she were a boy, she’d be so much better than her ex.” Gad asked Jean to “repeat her sentiments into a recorder”. They returned to the studio and wrote the song in 15 minutes. Jean recorded her version of the song.

For a song writer, script writer, copy writer, or any kind of writer (a blog writer, perhaps😀 ) inspiration can come from anywhere. So.. Just keep it in mind what interests you best, pour it down on a piece of paper and woalaaah… you can turn it into beautiful writing that others can enjoy, and perhaps, get something out of it.   Very often,  misery and pain did  not only inspire you to create amazing work, but may also add some spice on it.  So..for those in misery, it is your chance to create something worthy… 😆

\”If I Were a Boy by Beyonce\”

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 drink beer with the guys

And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it
‘Cause they stick up for me

If I were a boy
I think 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 lose the one you wanted
‘Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleeping alone

I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
‘Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waiting for me to come home, to come home

If I were a boy
I think 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 lose the one you wanted
‘Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

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

But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand
And you don’t understand, oh
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you 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’re taking her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed
But you’re just a boy
