Boy is a song by Little Mix and appears as the ninth track on their second album, Salute. Little Mix premiered the song on November 5, 2013 on their official Soundcloud account.

Critical Reception

Popcrush writer Amy Sciarretto stated: "Little Mix pay homage to En Vogue and Destiny’s Child – again – with ‘Boy,’ as well. It is a soulful, finger snapper song about moving on from dat boy. But make no mistake: Little Mix are not a carbon copy nor are they co-opting black female vocal groups. They infuse the concept of the rhythmic-leaning vocal ensemble with their own edge and a dose of their unique, Mixed and blue-eyed soul." [1]

Lyrics

Jesy (All):
Do you remember what he said?
(I do, he told you he'd never) ever hurt you
Oh, here we go again
Another (break-up, make-up) when you're gonna wake up

Leigh Anne (All):
I'm gon' be the one to (call him out)
Jade (All):
Look how many times (he let you down)
Perrie (All):
When's he gonna learn to be a (real man)
Leigh Anne (All):
I'll be the one to say (you're beautiful)
Jade (All):
One more word (he never said at all)
Perrie:
I'm just sayin' you need to go

Perrie with All:
Forget that boy, forget that boy
We know that that boy ain't good enough for you
You're holding back tears in your eyes
That boy wanna fight but I never see him fighting for you
He'll never realize what he's got
Until it's gone (Leigh-Anne: And he'll lose you forever)
Girl you'll be alright, forget that boy

Jade:
Girl don't you know you set the tone?
I'll make you stop that, fight back
He won't get away with that
Look who's ringing up your phone
You wanna call back, leave that
Ain't nobody got time for that

Leigh-Anne:
It's funny how the tables turn
When he's the one who's left alone
You'll find your own real man and go

Perrie with All:
Forget that boy, forget that boy
We know that that boy ain't good enough for you
You're holding back tears in your eyes
That boy wanna fight but I never see him fighting for you
He'll never realize what he's got
Until it's gone (Leigh-Anne: And he'll lose you forever)
Girl you'll be alright, forget that boy

See what you're worth girl
Look what you've got
He knows you're out of his league
If he likes it or not

I know what you're worth girl
You know what you've got (Leigh-Anne: Yeah)
He'll know you're out of his league
If he likes it or not (Leigh-Anne: Likes it or not)

Jade:
Ahh, ahh ooh yeah (Jesy: Haah)

Perrie with All:
Forget that boy, forget that boy
We know that that boy ain't good enough for you
You're holding back tears in your eyes
That boy wanna fight but I never see him fighting for you
He'll never realize what he's got
Until it's gone (Leigh-Anne: And he'll lose you forever)
Girl you'll be alright, forget that boy (Leigh-Anne: That boy, that boy)

I know what you're worth girl
You know what you've got
We'll know you're out of his league
If he likes it or not (Jesy: Likes it or not)
Girl you'll be alright, forget that boy

Perrie:
Haah
