The Lyrics

Everyone online has made the joke that Taylor Swift's next song should say that maybe she is the reason for all of her breakups...well it looks like I beat her to it! Original Song:
The same thing, a different night
All the tabloid pictures
A long list of your exes, (uh-oh, oh God)
On Entertainment Tonight-
“I can’t find a good guy!”
But that just makes my brain hurt (Mm-hmm, uh-huh)

I can’t feel sad for you, you’re lonely all the damn time
It's pitiful, yet comical oh yeah
You’ll realize, Miss Taylor Swift, to open your eyes
it's time uh uh

Sure, I think you are cute
But I think it must be you
Dating lasts a short weeks’ time
Then you write a song or two
Then you go on TV
We must feel sad for you?
Could you just please stop your whining
Your list of boyfriends last week-
Must be you

You seem like one of those girls
You talk about weddings
Already planning (“Can we just get married already? Please!”)
Ten minutes into date night
You’re at the movies
“Why don’t you love me!?
Oh, I’m so lonely!”

I’m pretty damn confused, you’re lonely every damn day
It's pitiful, yet comical oh yeah
On each Top Forty hit, you sing about your heartbreaks
Each time, oh God!

I don't know about you
But I think it must be you
Every guy forever frightened
They run away from you
In the future you’ll be,
though you do not want to
You’ll end up a sad cat lady
Take one look in the mirror
Must be you, must be you
I don’t know what to do
Must be you, must be you

“I’ve found the love of my life
He drove my taxi
He’s great! And his name is Mike…
Or was it Bradley?
Then after my stop on Ninth
Picked up my friend Sue
My heart’s now in two…Bradley, how could you!?”

I don’t know what to do
You must know it must be you
Everyone will be alright if
They stay away from you
“Our first daughter will be
Annabelle or Peg Sue.
Want at least a half a dozen…
Hey, where you going!? Oh man…”
Must be you, must be you
Sorry but, must be you, must be you

Ev-er-y guy is your type
If their heart’s beating
Once they get into your sight
Already dating
You’ll find the love of your life
But filter, won’t you!?
It has to be you, sadly, it is you!

Probably the best general idea in the round, it kinda works for other women too. Maybe some lines could have had better pacing (subject over pacing? We're all guilty of that sooner or later!). Kudos for "Every guy is your type if their heart’s beating", kinda reminded me of "she's fooling around with all that stands too pee" from an original I gave up on once.

(SOTM) Wow, you're really good at this whol Taylor Swift satire thing, ain't ya? I admit I am kinda taking your word for it as I don't listen to anything country-related, but I did thoroughly enjoy this parody. 555!

Funny stuff, I like your trend on the Taylor Swift songs too. Been kicking around an idea for this song myself. Nice job on the turnaround on a new song.

Youre continuing to skewer Miss Swift and I support that... that came out wrong. Very funny and enjoyed the cat lady line and the taxi stanza especially

(SOTM) We can all make fun of Tay Swift all we want, but we can't deny she knows how to make a hit. You always knock Tay Swift parodies out of the park, extremely funny, pacing wasn't the best, but I still loved it. I don't know why... it MUST BE YOU! So it's fitting my security code is VVV cuz I'm giving you 555!

Funny jab, but it would have been way cool if you had referenced some of the dudes that she ended up dumping! Well done anyway!

(ABC) See above!

I'm dating a girl named Taylor and I always joke with her that if we ever break up then she'll write a hit country/ pop song about me. This was a fun look at the craziness that is Tay Swift.
