I wish he was my boyfriend
I wish he was my boyfriend
I'd love him to the very end
But instead he is just a friend
I wish he was my boyfriend

There's nothing worse than sitting all alone at home
Been waiting, waiting, waiting, by the phone
I hope that he's at home
Waiting by his phone
I wonder if he knows that I want him

I wish he was my boyfriend
I wish he was my boyfriend
I'd love him to the very end
But instead he's just a friend
I wish he was my boyfriend

The other girl is not like me
She's prettier and skinnier
She has a college degree
I dropped out when I was seventeen
If only I could get her out of the picture
Then he would know how much I want him

One day I'll make him mine
And we'll be together all the time
We'll sit and watch the sun rise
And gaze into each other's eyes
And know that he knows
I know that he knows
That he wants to be my boyfriend

Boyfriend
Boyfriend
I'd love him to the very end
But instead he's just a friend
I wish he was my boyfriend
I wish he was my boyfriend
I'd love him to the very end
But instead he's just a friend
I wish he was my boyfriend

    The lyrics clearly say what the song means. It's about how a girl wants a guy to be her boyfriend but they are just friends. There is another girl that is more attractive and she is in the way of her ever being with that guy. She wants her out of the picture so he can realize how much she wants him
