Reba McEntire Regrets Recording “If I Were a Boy”

After performing Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy” on CMT Unplugged in 2010, Reba’s label wanted her to record her own version and release it as a single.  Although she admits she didn’t feel too good about it, she followed the advice of her team and recorded it.  It was released from her “All the Women I Am” album in 2011, underperforming, peaking only at #22 on the country chart.  She felt that was a misstep for her.  A lot of people disagree and appreciated that she covered the song.  She looks and sounds awesome.  I’ll post the video so you can watch it.

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go

Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it
Cause they stick up for me

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man
I’d listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleeping alone

I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she’d be faithful,
Waiting for me to come home, to come home.

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man
I’d listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

It’s a little too late for you to come back
Say it’s just a mistake,
Think I’d forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand
And you don’t understand, ohhhh
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you wish you were a better man
You don’t listen to her
You don’t care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
Cause you’re taking her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

But you’re just a boy
