Like a Boy - Ciara

Like a Boy

The Evolution
rnb Ciara Hip-Hop pop female vocalists


Written by Ciara, Candice Nelson, Balewa Muhammad, J. Que, Ezekiel Lewis, and Calvin Kenon, "Like A Boy" was the second single released from her sophomore album The Evolution. The release was confirmed in a MTV News article and chosen before polling ended for Ciara's second single on her Official Myspace page, being picked over "That's Right" and "Can't Leave 'Em Alone". Although the single was a moderate hit, it failed to match the success of its North American predecessor. "Like a Boy" details about double standards in society of how men in relationships can do certain things, but when women do the same it is looked down upon. According to Ciara, "it's a record for my women" and she had "a lot of girl talks". Ciara wanted to know what it would be like if "the roles were reversed". "It's a female-empowerment record". The protagonist wishes to "act like a boy". The song is notable for its mixture of synthesized orchestral strings and hard-pounding hip-hop instrumental. Ciara also co-produced the song along with The Evolution track "My Love".

Like a Boy - Ciara

[Intro:]
2007
Ladies... I think it's time we switch roles
C... I... A... Are... A...
[Verse: 1]
Pull up your pants
(Just Like Em')
Take out the trash
(Just Like Em')
Gettin your cash
Like I'm fasy
Girl you outta act like ya dig
(What I'm talkin' bout')
Security codes on everything
Vibrate so your phone don't ever ring
(Joint Account)
And another one he don't know about

[Hook:]
Wish we could switch up the roles
And I could be that...
Tell you I love you
But when you call I never get back
Would you ask them questions like me?...
Like where you be at?
Cause I'm out 4 in the morning
On the corna roll'n
Do'n my own thing
Ohh

[Chorus:]
What if I?
Had a thing on the side?
Made ya cry?
Would the rules change up?
Or would they still apply?
If I played you like a toy?
Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy

Can't be get'n mad!
What You Mad?
Can't Handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!

[Verse: 2]
Wish we could switch up the roles
And I could be that
Girl go head and be...
(Just Like Em')
Go run the streets
(Just Like Em')
Come home late say sleep like em'
Creep like em'
Front with ya friends
Act hard when you're with em' like em'
(What)
Keep a straight face when ya tell a lie
Always keep an airtight alibi
(Keep Him In The Dark)
What he don't know won't break his heart

[Hook:]
Wish we could switch up the roles
And I could be that...
Tell you I love you...
But when you call I never get back
Would you ask them questions like me?...
Like where you be at?
Cause I'm out 4 in the morning
On the corna roll'n
Do'n my own thing
Yeah

[Chorus:]
What if I?
Had a thing on the side?
Made ya cry?
Would the rules change up?
Or would they still apply?
If I played you like a toy?
Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy

Can't be get'n mad!
What You Mad?
Can't Handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!

[Bridge:]
If I was always gone
If the sun beat me home
(Would Ya Like That?)
Told you I was with my crew
When I knew it wasn't true
(Would Ya Like That?)
If I act like you
Walk a mile off in yo shoes
(Would Ya Like That?)
I'm mess'n with your head again
Dose of your own medicine

[Chorus:]
If I played you...
Would yo like that?
Had friends...
Would you like that?
Never call?
Would you like that?
No no
You wouldn't like that
No!

What you mad?
Can't Handle that!
Why you gettin' mad?
What you mad?
Can't handle that!

What if I?
Had a thing on the side?
Made ya cry!
Would the rules change up?
Or would they still apply!
What if I...
If I played you like a toy
Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy!

Can't be get'n mad!
What You Mad?
Can't Handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!
Can't be get'n mad!
What you mad?
Can't handle that!

Can't Handle That
