Thats The Way Boys Are Lyrics

Artist: Lesley Gore

That's the Way Boys Are

Artist: Lesley Gore (peak Billboard position # 12 in 1964 )
Words and Music by Mark Barkan and Ben Raleigh

(hey-ay-ay, hey-ay-ay)

When I'm with my guy and he watches all the pretty girls go by-y-y (hey-ay-ay)
And I feel so hurt deep inside I wish that I could die (hey-ay-ay)
Not a word do I sa-a-y, I just look the other wa-a-a-a-ay
â'cause that's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)
That's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)

When he treats me rough and he acts as though he doesn't really ca-a-are (hey-
ay-ay)
Well I never tell him that he is so unfair (hey-ay-ay)
Plus he loves me and I know it but he's just afraid to sho-o-o-o-ow it
â'cause that's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)
That's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)

Oh oh when he wants to be alone, I just let him be
â'cause I know that soon enough he will come back to-a me-e

When we have a fight I think that I won't see him anymore (hey-ay-ay)
The-en before I know it there he is standin' at my door (hey-ay-ay)
Well I let him kiss me then â'cause I know he wants me ba-a-ack again
That's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)
Yes the way boys are (that's the way boys are)

Oh I love him (that's the way boys are)
Well now that's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)
I said that's the way boys are (that's the way boys are)

Also. Got some weird punctuation thing going on, check that. Beginning of the lines.
And the line is 'well I let him kiss me there and then'. ~L
