[Verse 1]

My boy’s being sus he was shady enough but now he’s just a shadow

  • “Sus” is just short for suspicious. Her boy was so sly and suspicious, hiding from the light, that he eventually faded in the shadows and became one.

My boy loves his friends like I love my split ends and by that I mean

He cuts ’em off

(What?!)

  • Here, Eilish cleverly compares the way her boyfriend handles relationships to the way she handles dead hair. As hair grows out, it becomes unhealthy and “frayed” along the bottom – these dead portions of hair are undesirable and typically get cut off. Similarly, to the way a person would cut off dead hair, the boy to which Eilish is referring figuratively “cuts off” any friends he makes. This lyric provides some insight into the toxicity of Eilish’s boy’s personality, specifically his inability to maintain relationships.

[Chorus]

My boy

My boy

My boy

Don’t love me like he promised

My boy

My boy

My boy

He ain’t a man and sure as hell ain’t honest

  • We’re already aware that this boy is a suspicious liar. By calling him “her boy,” Billie reinforces that he is too immature to be in a relationship with her, and suggests that she is superior, because she speaks the truth and he doesn’t. He cannot be the man she deserves unless he keeps his promises and loves her completely; without lying most of the time. Billie references this concept of false promises of love on the previous track of the EP, “idontwannabeyouanymore:” If ‘I love you’ was a promise
    Would you break it, if you’re honest?

[Verse 2]

My boy’s being sus and he don’t know how to cuss, he just sounds like he’s tryna be his father (Who are you?)

  • Like father like son. Her boy knows he is juvenile and strives to be more mature. He attempts to do so by imitating his father who swears all the time and unlike him, is a grown man. But he swears unnecessarily, throwing around words, revealing his immaturity.

My boy’s an ugly crier but he’s such a pretty liar and by that I mean he said he’d “change”

  • Billie’s boy is an ugly crier because he isn’t used to being hurt and expressing it as much as he is used to lying to his girlfriend (or the friends who he cuts off). The boy is clearly used to lying, since he’s so good at it that he maintains his suave, attractive exterior while doing it. Being pretty while lying isn’t easy, and for most people it’s hard to not get caught lying. But her boy knows how to manipulate people and lies without issue. He says he’s going to change, but this is a lie he uses often.

[Chorus]

My boy

My boy

My boy

Don’t love me like he promised

My boy

My boy

My boy

He ain’t a man and sure as hell ain’t honest

My boy, my boy, my friends, I love my split ends

(Alright dude, go trip over a knife)

[Chorus]

My boy

My boy

My boy

Don’t love me like he promised

My boy

My boy

My boy

He ain’t a man and sure as hell ain’t honest

  • The last bit, on idontwannabeyouanymore, is actually Billie referencing herself. She has said in several interviews that she doesn’t like being stuck in a relationship, and that she tends to try to get away, so that part isn’t about a partner.

[Verse 3]

You want me to be yours well then you gotta be mine, and if you want a good girl, then goodbye

You want me to be yours well then you gotta be mine, and if you want a good girl, then goodbye
