Boys is a song by The Shirelles, covered by The Beatles. It is the fifth song on side 1 of The Beatles 1st UK LP "Please Please Me". It is credited to Luther Dixon/Wes Farrell.
In an October 2005 Rolling Stone interview, Paul McCartney said: "Any one of us could hold the audience. Ringo would do 'Boys', which was a fan favorite with the crowd. And it was great — though if you think about it, here's us doing a song and it was really a girls' song. 'I talk about boys now!' Or it was a gay song. But we never even listened. It's just a great song. I think that's one of the things about youth — you just don't give a s**t. I love the innocence of those days."
