If I Were a Boy by Beyoncé is featured in The End of Twerk, the fifth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Unique.

She is getting bullied for using the Boys' Restroom at McKinley and has trouble facing her struggles. After being harassed by a bunch of boys, she sings If I Were a Boy as she stands against the corner of the bathroom, scared and sad. In The Choir Room, she sings the song to the New Directions as they listen to the pain in her voice. As she sings, she continues to cry. She sobs as she finishes her performance. The New Directions Boys feel her pain and one by one, they get up to ask Unique for names and to say they need to get their ass kicked, but Will and Unique know that it isn't the solution. She says that she loves them and their support but instead of fixing the problem, it would only make it worse.

Lyrics

Unique:
If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
Throw on what I wanted and go

Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it
'Cause they stick up for me

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man

I'd listen to her
'Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
'Cause he's taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

It's a little too late for you to come back
Say it's just a mistake
Think I'd forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you're just a boy
You don't understand
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you wish you were a better man

Oh! You don't listen to her
And you don't care how it hurts, oh oh!
Until you lose the one you wanted
'Cause you've taken her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed
But you're just a boy

Trivia

  • This is Unique's first solo as a member of New Directions, since Joy to the World was exclusively on the third Christmas album and wasn't used in an episode.
  • This is the only solo where Unique doesn't wear a wig.
