When I first came into this world
And got my first look at a girl
It didn’t take long to understand
It ain’t easy being a boy

And all through my teenage years
They held my doubts and deepest fears
In softest silken golden hands
It ain’t easy being a boy

Girls hold the mystery the secret book of codes
Boys can’t read the signs beside the road

Girls are the riddle, leaving clues like crumbs behind
Boys blunder through the brush clueless and blind

When girls first come into this world
Slowly spinning hair uncurled
Sweetly smiling, making sure

It ain’t easy being a boy
