Pretty much everyone is obsessed with Lizzo.

The 'Truth Hurts' singer has had a massive year this year. She released her third album Cuz I Love You, pulled off an epic BET Awards performance (with props from Rihanna herself), she's starring in the new Hustlers movie alongside Cardi B and she's just become the face of makeup brand Urban Decay. We have decided to stan FOREVA.

But back to the music, Lizzo's tunes are doing ridiculously well in the charts. 'Truth Hurts' recently reached platinum status and became an entire challenge on TikTok. But now it's time for another one of her tracks to get some shine on the internet – 'Boys'.

Lizzo, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, released 'Boys' in June 2018 and it was her first single to enter a commercial chart. Although it came out a year ago, the internet has fallen in love with it all over again. So much so that the lyrics have become viral threads on Twitter.

In case you need a reminder, the lyrics go:

I like big boys, itty bitty boys Mississippi boys, inner city boys
I like the pretty boys with the bow tie
Get your nails did, let it blow dry
I like a big beard, I like a clean face I don't discriminate, come and get a taste
From the playboys to the gay boys
Go and slay, boys, you my fave boys

Now the internet is turning every lyric into a hilarious thread. Lets start with lizards.

The power of Lizzo.
