"Boys (The Shirelles cover)" as written by Luther Dixon and Wes Farrell....
I been told when a boy kiss a girl,
Take a trip around the world,
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop) yeah, she say ya do. (Bop shuop)

My girl says when I kiss her lips,
Gets a thrill through her fingertips,
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop) yeah, she say ya do. (Bop shuop)

Well, I talk about boys,
Don't ya know I mean boys,
Well, I talk about boys, now,
Aaahhh, boys,
Well, I talk about boys, now,
What a bundle of joy! (Alright, George!)

My girl says when I kiss her lips,
Gets a thrill through her fingertips,
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop, m'bop bop shuop)
Hey, hey, (bop shuop) yeah, she say ya do. (Bop shuop)

Well, I talk about boys,
Don't ya know I mean boys,
Well, I talk about boys, now,
Aaahhh, boys,
Well, I talk about boys, now,
What a bundle of joy! Ah ah boys! Don't you know I mean boys ooo boys! Ah ha!

    General CommentThis song was originally recorded by The Shirelles, a girl group, hence why it's about "Boys". This was one of Ringo's first vocal attempts with The Beatles, and remains one of his fans favourites.

    General CommentJohn once said that this song sort of made Ringo uncomfortable to sing but they didn't want to change the song title. They got another one for him to sing. I think it was 'Act Naturally'.

    General CommentRingo didn't come out of the closet. If he's gay, he's never said so... yet! But anyway, I just love his drumming in this one, and I always am a fan of the Ringo songs...

    General Commentis it just me or does it sound very un-ringo-ish? just the voice...doesnt sound like him really.
    and yeah, funny how he sings about boys. but that doesn't mean he's gay, obviously.

    General CommentMy free interpretation: this guy (Ringo) has commitment issues with his girl and is now more intersted in boys because there's not as much commitment involved.

    The song could've been gayer if they totally stuck to the original lyrics, which would've been lots of fun.
