Now go stand in the corner
And think about what you did
Ha, time for a little revenge
Bm Bm G G
The story starts when it was hot and it was summer
D D A A
And I had it all, I had him right there where I wanted him
Bm Bm G G
She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause
D D A A
She took him faster than you can say sabotage

Bm Bm G G
I never saw it coming, wouldn't have suspected it
D D A A
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
Bm Bm G G
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum
D D A A
She underestimated just who she was stealing from

Bm Bm G G
She's not a saint, and she's not what you think
D D A A
She's an actress, whoa
Bm Bm G G
She's better known for the things that she does
D D A A
On the mattress, whoa

Bm Bm G G
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
A A G G
On the playground won't make you many friends
Bm Bm G G
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A
There is nothing I do better than revenge

Bm Bm G G
She lives her life like it's a party and she's on the list
D D A A
She looks at me like I'm a trend and she's so over it
Bm Bm G G
I think her ever present frown is a little troubling
D D A A
She thinks I'm psycho 'cause I like to rhyme her name with things

Bm Bm G G
But Sophistication isn't what you wear or who you know
D D A A
Or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go
Bm Bm G G
Oh, they don't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me
D D A A
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity

Bm Bm G G
She's not a saint, and she's not what you think
D D A A
She's an actress, whoa
Bm Bm G G
She's better known for the things that she does
D D A A
On the mattress, whoa

Bm Bm G G
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
A A G G
On the playground won't make you many friends
Bm Bm G G
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A
There is nothing I do better than revenge

Bm Bm G G
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at, honey
D D A A
You might have him, but haven't you heard?
Bm Bm G G
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at, honey
D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A
You might have him, but I always get the last word

Bm Bm G G
She's not a saint, and she's not what you think
D D A A
She's an actress, whoa
Bm Bm G G
She's better known for the things that she does
D D A A
On the mattress, whoa

Bm Bm G G
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
A A G G
On the playground won't make you many friends
Bm Bm G G
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A
There is nothing I do better than revenge
Bm Bm G G
And do you still feel like you know what you're doing
D D A A
Cuz I don't think you do oh
Bm Bm G G
And do you still feel like you know what you're doing
D D A A
Cuz I don't think you do, I don't think you do
Bm Bm
Let's cue the applause
G G D D A A
Come on show me how much better you are
Bm Bm
Yeah you deserve some applause
G G
Cuz you're so much better
D D A A
She took him faster than you can say sabatoge

I really hope in Taylor’s re-recording of speak now that she doesn’t change this song! I love it, it’s such a good song! And this is an old song all the damage has already been done! And if she doesn’t re-record it scooter will continue to get all of Taylor’s money! She has to re-record it WITHOUT changes!

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."
