"My Boy", stylized as "my boy", is a song by Billie Eilish that serves as the third track on her debut EP, dont smile at me. It was released as the 6th single on July 27, 2017. The TroyBoi remix, written as "MyBoi", was officially released on March 9th, 2018.

Theme Edit

Billie is exploring a failing relationship with a boy she knows is lying to her. Unlike in Ocean Eyes, her breakthrough single, Billie is the one who is superior and in control throughout the song.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
My boy's being sus, he was shady enough
But now he's just a shadow
My boy loves his friends like I love my split ends
And by that I mean he cuts 'em off

(What?!)

[Chorus]
My boy
My boy
My boy
Don't love me like he promised
My boy
My boy
My boy
He ain't a man and sure as hell ain't honest

[Verse 2]
My boy's being sus and he don't know how to cuss
He just sounds like he's tryna be his father
(Who are you?)
My boy's an ugly crier but he's such a pretty liar
And by that I mean he said he'd "change"

[Chorus]
My boy
My boy
My boy
Don't love me like he promised
My boy
My boy
My boy
He ain't a man and sure as hell ain't honest

[Bridge]
My boy, my friends, I love my split ends
(Alright dude, go trip over a knife)

[Chorus]
My boy
My boy
My boy
Don't love me like he promised
My boy
My boy
My boy
He ain't a man and sure as hell ain't honest

[Outro]
You want me to be yours, well then you gotta be mine
But if you want a good girl, then goodbye
You want me to be yours, well then you gotta be mine
But if you want a good girl, then goodbye
