“Betty” Lyrics From Taylor Swift

“Betty” (stylized in all lowercase) is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, taken from her eighth studio album, Folklore (2020). It was written by Swift and Joe Alwyn (under the pseudonym William Bowery), who produced the song with Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff.

MCA Nashville and Republic Records released the song to US country radio on August 17, 2020. “Betty” is an Americana-inspired song that combines country, folk rock, and guitar pop. The production consisted of harmonics, harpsichords, and multiple guitars with key changes after bridge.

The lyrics are about the relationship between two fictional characters named James and Betty. Some media publications initially interpreted the song in a strange context as the lyrics did not mention James’ gender, but Swift stated that James was a 17-year-old boy.

Told from her perspective, “Betty” is about her apology to Betty after she cheated on him. They are two of three characters involved in a love triangle depicted in three Folklore songs, the other two being “Cardigan” (from Betty’s perspective) and “August” (from the remaining nameless character’s perspective).

Music critics noted “Betty” for reminiscing about Swift’s early country music songs and praised its compelling storytelling. The song peaked at number six on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100. It peaked within the top 40 on the singles chart in Australia, Canada, and Singapore.

The single was certified gold by Music Canada (MC). Swift first performed “Betty” live at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards on September 16, 2020; the show was recorded and released on digital music platforms two days later.

Lyrics Betty – Taylor Swift

Betty, I won’t make assumptions about why you switched your homeroom
But I think it’s ’cause of me
Betty, one time I was riding on my skateboard when I passed your house
It’s like I couldn’t breathe

You heard the rumors from Inez
You can’t believe a word she says
Most times, but this time it was true
The worst thing that I ever did
Was what I did to you

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go fuck myself
Or lead me to the garden?

In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I’m only seventeen
I don’t know anything but I know I miss you

Betty, I know where it all went wrong
Your favorite song was playing from the far side of the gym
I was nowhere to be found, I hate the crowds, you know that
Plus, I saw you dance with him

You heard the rumors from Inez
You can’t believe a word she says
Most times, but this time it was true
The worst thing that I ever did
Was what I did to you

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go fuck myself
Or lead me to the garden?

In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I’m only seventeen
I don’t know anything but I know I miss you

I was walking home on broken cobblestones
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
Like a figment of my worst intentions

She said “James, get in, let’s drive”
Those days turned into nights
Slept next to her but
I dreamt of you all summer long

Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
And I planned it out for weeks now but, it’s finally sinking in
Betty, right now is the last time

I can dream about what happens when you see my face again
The only thing I wanna do
Is make it up to you

So, I showed up at your party
Yeah, I showed up at your party
Yeah, I showed up at your party

Will you have me?
Will you love me?
Will you kiss me on the porch in front of all your stupid friends?

If you kiss me
Will it be just like I dreamed it? Will it patch your broken wings?
I’m only seventeen
I don’t know anything
But I know I miss you

Standing in your cardigan
Kissing in my car again
Stopped at a streetlight, you know I miss you
