"This Boy" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
That boy
Took my love away
Though he'll regret it someday
But this boy wants you back again

That boy
Isn't good for you
Though he may want you, too
This boy wants you back again

Oh, and this boy would be happy
Just to love you, but oh my
That boy won't be happy
'Til he's seen you cry

This boy
Wouldn't mind the pain
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back again

This boy, this boy, this boy

    General CommentI've also read 'this boy' and 'that boy' as being two sides of a single personality. The idea that we often have the destructive urge towards the things that we love is embedded in a lot of John's songs at this time.
