I wanna be a boy,
                          Gbm
Or, at least that’s wat I think this feeling is,
         Abm
Take red pen to my paper,
                                  E
Correct mistakes that God somehow did.
 
Verse 2:
-nc-             E
I wanna befriend bugs,
                           Gbm
Climb tall trees, scrap my knees,
Gbm
And show I am tough,
     Abm
Only cry in the night time,
                          E
My bed is the thing I can trust.
 
Chorus:
E
Cuz I’ve grown sick of staring,
A
Hours in the mirror,
A
Moulding cheekbones,
E
Hoping a new face could appear,
E                      A
I’ll break and bend my spine,
A                            B
If it’d make you say “you’re mine”,
B
It’s so unfair!
-nc-                 E
I guess I wanna be a boy.

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
E  Gbm Abm

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
 
Verse 3:
-nc-         E
I wanna be a boy,
                      Gbm
Spread my legs when I sit,
Gbm
I don’t need manners, they’re xxxx,
       Abm
Rip my nails, cut my hair,
                             E
Cuz maybe then you’d finally care.
 
Verse 4:
-nc-                  E
Why can’t I just be a boy,
                        Gbm
Be the thing that gives you,
Gbm
Butterflies,
        Abm
Whisper that I’ll make you smile,
                                 E
Could we pretend that’s me for a while.
 
Chorus:
E
Cuz I’ve grown sick of staring,
A
Hours in the mirror,
A
Moulding cheekbones,
E
Hoping a new face could appear,
E                      A
I’ll break and bend my spine,
A                            B
If it’d make you say “you’re mine”,
B
You’re mine,
       E
You’re mine”,

I wanna be a boy,
                    Gbm7
Or at least be in a body,
Gbm7
You could love,
    A
I’d break and bend my spine,
A
If it’d make you say “You’re mine”,
         B
Could it make you say “You’re mine?”,
B              -nc-
It’s so unfair,
-nc-                     E
I wish I could just be a boy.
