I'd put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I'd know that she'd be faithful
Waitin' for me to come home

from Beyoncé – If I Were A Boy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Women excuse bad behavior in men because it’s expected that men will cheat and women will stay. In the video, the roles are switched and Beyonce expects her man to not be mad at her after she dances suggestively with a male co-worker.
