The Fame track listing

"Boys Boys Boys" is a song written by Lady Gaga and RedOne in 2007. The song was released on Gaga's debut album, The Fame, and was planned to be released as the next single after "Paparazzi", but was cancelled. Instead, The Fame Monster was released earlier, and "Bad Romance" was chosen as the new single.

Background and composition

After being dropped by Island Def Jam, New Heights Entertainment decided to introduce Gaga to RedOne, as they were both represented by them at the time. After some hesitation, RedOne agreed to meet Gaga, and they created the basis for "Boys Boys Boys" on the first day. The song was available briefly on Gaga's MySpace in 2007. The inspiration behind it was to make a pop song with a bit of rock to impress the guy she was dating at the time, who was really into metal.

I wanted to write the female version of Motley Crue’s ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ but with my own twist. I wanted to write a pop song that rockers would like.

—Lady Gaga

I wrote the track as a mating call. I was dating this who was really into heavy metal and I wanted to write a pop song that would make him fall in love with me. So I wrote that record and we dated for two years. It reminds me of "Girls, Girls, Girls" by Motley Crue. The subtext is that even though I'm a very free and sexually empowered woman, I'm not a man hater. I celebrate very American sentiments abouts bar and drinking and men buying women drinks. It's a very heavy metal sentiment that I celebrate in a pop song.

—Lady Gaga

Lyrics

Album version

Hey there sugar baby saw you twice at the pop show.
You taste just like glitter mixed with rock and roll.
I like you a lot, lot,
Think you’re really hot, hot.
Know you think you're special when we dance real crazy,
Glamophonic, electronic, d-d-disco baby.
I like you a lot, lot,
All we want is hot, hot.

Boys, Boys, Boys.
We like boys in cars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
Buy us drinks in bars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
With hairspray and denim,
and Boys, Boys, Boys.
We love them! We love them!

Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh
Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh

Baby is a bad boy with some retro sneakers.
Let’s go see The Killers and make out in the bleachers.
I like you a lot, lot,
Think you’re really hot, hot,
Let’s go to the party heard our buddy’s the DJ.
Don't forget my lipstick, I left it in your ashtray.
I like you a lot, lot,
All we want is hot, hot.

Boys, Boys, Boys.
We like boys in cars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
Buy us drinks in bars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
With hairspray and denim,

Boys, Boys, Boys.
We like boys in cars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
Buy us drinks in bars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.
With hairspray and denim,
and Boys, Boys, Boys.
We love them! We love them!

I’m not loose, I like to party.
Let’s get lost in your Ferrari,
Not psychotic or dramatic,
I like boys and that is that.
Love it when you call me “legs”,
In the morning buy me eggs,
Watch your heart when we’re together.
Boys like you love me for ever.

Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh
Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh
Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh
Ohh, oh oh oh- uh-ohhhh-oooo-wuh-ohh

Boys, Boys, Boys.
We like boys in cars.
Boys, Boys, Boys.

With hairspray and denim,
and Boys, Boys, Boys.
We love them! We love them!

Boys, Boys, Boys.
We like boys in cars.
