Intro: Am Am F F C C G G x2

Am Am F F
The story starts when it was hot and it was Summer
C C G G
And, I had it all; I had him right there where I wanted him
Am Am F F
She came along, got him along, and let's hear the applause
C C* G G*
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
Am Am F F
I never saw it coming, nor had I suspected it
C C G G
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
Am Am F F
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum
C C* G G*

G G (building intensity)

Am Am F F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think

Am Am F F
She lives her life like it's a party and she's on the list
C C G G
She looks at me like I'm a trend and she's so over it
Am Am F F
I think her ever present frown is a little troubling
C C* G G*
And, she thinks I'm psycho cause I like to rhyme her name with things, but
Am Am F F
Sophistication isn't what you wear, or who you know
C C G G
or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go
Am Am F F
Oh they didn't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me
C C* G G*
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity


Am Am F F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
C C G G
She's an actress, Whoa
Am Am F F
She's better known for the things that she does
C C G G
on the mattress, Whoa
Am Am
Soon she's gonna find

Stealing other people's toys on the playground

Won't make you many friends

She should keep in mind,

And do you still feel like you know what you're doing,
C C G G
Cause I don't think you do, Oh

About this song

This song is based on an event that happened while Taylor Swift was dating Joe Jonas. It is rumoured to have been written about Camilla Belle. Taylor Swift comments on her official website that: "The song "Better Than Revenge" is about a girl, who a few years ago, stole my boyfriend. I think she probably thought I forgot about it, but I didn't."
