The Lyrics

This song is not a diss on Taylor Swift. I don’t like her music and don’t respect her singing ability; but I do respect her songwriting ability. However, when she wrote “Dear John,” as a John Mayer fan, I saw it as a sort of slap in the face for John Mayer and his fans. Therefore, I wrote this song in defense of John Mayer not as disrespect to Taylor Swift.
Dear Taylor

Long were the nights when I
Couldn’t stop thinking of you
Counting the messages saying “I miss you too”
It started to creep me
Out of my mind
But You Swore
I was Fine
I’d write you a love song
And you’d go and turn it to gay
You lived it my chess game
The rules never stay the same
Wondering if you’ll consider not calling me
All the time
Well I stopped picking up
And this song is to let you know why

Dear Taylor
Don’t you know I’m John Mayer
Don’t you think I was to old to be dating
The girl with the blonde
When they say it’s wrong
You shoulda known

Well, maybe it’s you
And your clinginess to blame
Maybe its me and my ability
To charm every girl any day
And I’ll add your name to a long list of blondes
Who don’t understand
Turn around and you’ll see all the signs saying:
“Don’t mess with this man”

Dear Taylor
Don’t you know I’m John Mayer
Don’t you think I was to old to be dating
The girl with the blonde
When they say it’s wrong
Dear Taylor
Didn’t you know I’m a Player
Don’t you think 30’s unfair
To be written into a song
When you get the notes wrong
You shoulda known

I am an expert at lying
Without even trying
Never impressed by but only the best
All the guys you’ve embarrassed
With their names in your lyrics
Cause you heart was broke
But you were outmatched
Before it began
So don’t cry now
I’m getting revenge from you
Over you’re sad empty song

Dear Taylor
I noticed your clingy behavior
Don’t you think I was too old
To be dating the girl with the blonde
When they say it’s wrong
Can’t you see I’m John Mayer
Don’t you think you were too young
To be dating the guy that was faking
Wrote you a song
You shoulda known
