"Boys" as written by and Ryan Adams....
I'm as lonely as boys
I'm as lonely as boys
I'm as lonely as monkeys taught to destroy
Anything they learn to enjoy

So pardon me, angel
So pardon me, angel
Pardon me, my love, for you is a stranger
That you met some place but ignored

So break and go home
Break and go home
Why don't you leave me?
Leave me alone

I'm as lonely as boys
Who are lonely for girls
Who are lonely as monkeys taught to enjoy
Everything they learn to destroy

So pardon me, angel
So pardon me, angel
Pardon me, my love, for you is in danger
In danger of becoming a bore

So break and go home
Break and go home
Why don't you leave me alone?
Leave me alone

I'm the loneliest boy
With the loneliest plan
But I'm ready and want to understand
But that ain't a woman, that's a girl

So pardon me, angel
So pardon me, angel
Pardon me, my faith in girls is in danger
She leaves you addicted - wanting more

So break and go home
Why don't you leave me?
Leave me alone
So break and go home
Go home

    General CommentI read in an interview that this was written in response to Britney Spear's song also titled "Boys."

    Basically she is saying that all men are assholes, and Ryan comes back with saying that they're really not and some men (like him) are actually romantic and have feelings too. Its really great how he can do that.
