Ciara – Like A Boy lyrics

[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

    I think that like a boy by ciara is about the ladies who is tired of the unfaithfullness, the mistrust and the secrets in a relationship with the one she loves and she wants to show him what he is doing wrong in the relationship. I think that the message is that girls go through more than boys and boys are taking advantage of the possible one that is mrs. Right.

    This song to me is about how women are tired of men thinking they can do what they want and it doesn't hurt women notice how Ciara says wish I can act like a boy well men step up to plate and their ladies they're here to stay they're gonna be faithful and they be on their a-game and boys act like they don't need any better but who runs the world girls do lol.

    Ciara is trying to let heartless boys know what it feels like to be toyed with. She's letting dudes know that they aren't slick, and that we know their little games. She is saying that I wish I could be as heartless as you, and give you a "taste of your own medicine, but she's not. She's classier than that. But she could if she wanted to stoop to that BOYISH level. Notice she say's "like a boy" and not "like a man". :)
