Episode: The First Time

A Boy Like That/I Have A Love from West Side Story is featured in The First Time, the fifth episode of Season Three. It is sung by Rachel and Santana.

The song is performed in The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion, while rehearsals for the school production of West Side Story. It is split into two parts within the episode. The first part is edited into the scene between Blaine and Sebastian, showing Sebastian's personality, implying he can't be trusted and that Blaine can't fall into Sebastian's trap. The second part is entwined to where Tina talks about losing her virginity to Mike, talking about how it was the right time because it was with somebody that she really loved. Rachel realizes that Finn is the right person to lose her virginity to, because she loves him very much and she knows, he loves her just as much as she does.


A boy like that who'd kill your brother
Forget that boy and find another
One of your own kind
Stick to your own kind

A boy like that will give you sorrow
You'll meet another boy tomorrow
One of your own kind
Stick to your own kind

A boy who kills cannot love
A boy who kills has no heart
But he's the boy who gets your love and gets your heart
Very smart, Maria, very smart

A boy like that wants one thing only
And when he's done, he'll leave you lonely
He'll murder your love
He murdered mine

Just wait and see
Just wait, Maria
Just wait and see

Oh no, Anita, no, Anita, no

It isn't true, not for me
It's true for you, not for me

I hear your words
And in my head I know they're smart
But my heart, Anita, but my heart
Knows they're wrong

You should know better
You were in love, or so you said
You should know better

I have a love and it's all that I have
Right or wrong, what else can I do?

I love him, I'm his
And everything he is
I am, too

I have a love and it's all that I need
Right or wrong, and he needs me, too

I love him, we're one
There's nothing to be done
Not a thing I can do

But hold him, hold him forever
Be with him now, tomorrow and all of my life

Rachel with Santana:
When love comes so strong
There is no right or wrong
Your love is your life


  • This is the first performance to be split into two parts between the episode to be intercut with two different scenes.
