"Boy-Girl" as written by and Larry Mullen Adam Clayton....
Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)

When a boy meets a girl
Boy/Girl (girl)

Finding out
I'm finding out the things
That I've been talking about.
I'm finding out the things
That I've been missing out.
Finding all the things
That blow my mind
I sometimes fall behind.

You and I
We live on the big ship
And time sails by.
You make up
And I believe milady's lie.
The skinheads call it strawberries and cream
Sometimes I scream.

Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)

When a boy meets a girl
Boy/Girl (girl)

We go out
A picture or a disco or a roundabout
I walk you home,
I hold you there
You're giving out
I open doors so I can shut your face
Know your place.

Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)

When a boy meets a girl
Boy/Girl (girl)

You can take me in your hand
Stand back, leave me, come in.
Up and down and all around
Swinging sideways to the ground.

Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)
When a boy meets a girl

Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)
When a boy meets a girl

Boy/Girl (girl)
Boy/Girl (girl)
When a boy meets
When a boy meets
When a boy meets girl.

    General CommentThe first U2 single. A very raw version was done for CBS records in 1978 and released in Ireland. The version on Boy was done later with Steve Lillywhite. A good example of young U2, exploring the themes of adolescence.

    General CommentActually, this isn't the first single! In fact it wasn't even a single. This song was released as the 3rd track of the EP Three, in 1979, that is before Boy (1980). Check...

    The first single was Another day, followed by 11 o' clock tick tock. 11 o' was re-released in Under a blood red sky. Another day was never re-issued. I believe its very, and i mean VERY rare.

    General CommentIf you want to be technical, the first Island Records single U2 released was the original "Out of Control", on the Three EP, which this is, of course, a b-side of.
