The Boy in Me

V1

The boy in me is creative
He’s the one who oversees my art
He’s the one who deserves the credit
He’s the one in charge of my heart
You want a real man, my dear
You’re saying I should lose the boy in me
This is my response and position
I wholeheartedly disagree

CHORUS

The boy in me is the best part
He loves to have a wonderful time
He’s always in his prime
The old man in me is cranky
and the teenager inside is insecure
But the boy in me is who keeps me mature

V2

He makes my bed every morning
Packs the bag for work, not school
He had the focus of a hawk in flight
For love and friendship, he’s a fool
He’s playful and he’s witty
and he’s your number one fan
Don’t tell me I don’t need him
He supports me in being a man

BRIDGE

He is good… He is bad….
He’s happy and can be sad
He’s the best at who he is
The things I use are his

Back To CHORUS

V3

The boy in me I’m proud of
He’s believed in me from the start
He’s guided me when I’ve lost my way
and when I’ve totally fallen apart
You want a real man, my dear
but have you ever considered this
If I killed him off like so many do
It’s him that you’d miss

CHORUS 2 and TAG

Because the boy in me is the best part
He loves to have an awesome time
He’s the reason behind every rhyme
The old man, he’s too tired
and the teenager’s too eager for lust
But the boy in me, my love, is the one to trust

Yeah, the boy in me, my love, is the one to trust.
