I was a boy with a barbie when they teased me it was hard 
Just a boy with a barbie from the start 
Don't think it meant to break my heart 

I was a boy with a barbie this is beautiful and true 
I had a crush on every girl I saw they never knew 
I've never told a single soul but you 

Boys with their barbies and girls with toy armies 
We don't have to play by their rules 

I don't know where it started, all these roles and make believe 
Just a boy with a totem make believe 
Now it seems naive, I kept my heart upon my sleeve 

I was a boy with a barbie and the teachers looked concerned 
Although they tried to stop me getting burned 
I guess they didn't realize it would hurt 

Boys with their barbies and girls with toy armies 
We don't have to play by their rules 

Boys being prudes while the girls make thier moves 
We don't have to play by their rules 

So let them wear that dress, let them make that mess 
Let 'em take that fall, let 'em kick that ball 
And thank to the ones that tried to stop my fun 
You made me what I am, you made me what I am 
You made me a man 

Boys with their barbies and girls with toy armies 
We don't have to play by their rules 

Boys staying home while their girls on the run 
We don't have to play by their rules 
Play by their rules
