Boys Will Be Boys is the debut album from the band Rabbitt, the South African rock quartet led by Trevor Rabin. It was released in 1975 on Jo'Burg Records in South Africa, and promptly went gold faster than any other disc released in the country. The band would go on to win the Sarie Award (South Africa's equivalent to the Grammy) for "Best Contemporary Pop".

Boys Will Be Boys would later be re-issued in 1989, both in Germany (on Line Music) and in the States (on Jet).
