"[I]t's absurd that a singer in a rock band puts on a pinstripe suit and goes for a walk down Wall Street banging on doors. But you know what? They opened."

Found On:


I Will Follow (1980)


The Complete U2 (2004)


Boy (1980)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Boy/Girl" (live from London 1)

Boys and girls

Boy/girl, boy/girl
Boy meets a girl
Boy/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
I'm finding all the things, I lose my mind
Sometimes I fall behind

You and I
We live on the big ship and time goes by
You make up and I believe a lady's lie
Your skin is coloured strawberries and cream
Sometimes I scream

Boy/girl, boy/girl
Boy meets a girl
Boy/girl

We go out
Picture, disco, roundabout
I walk you home
I hold you and you're giving out
I open up so I can shut your face
Know your place

Boy/girl, boy/girl
Boy meets a girl
Boy/girl

Up and down and all around
Boy, boy

Boy/girl, boy/girl
When a boy meets a girl
Boy/girl, boy/girl
Boy meets a girl
Boy/girl, boy/girl
When a boy meets
When a boy meets
When a boy meets girl
