I don’t know about you (but I’m feeling 22…just kidding), but when Taylor Swift drops a new album, I simply listen on repeat and learn the songs as time goes by. I don’t tend to make use of her gorgeous lyric videos, and judging from the tweets below, many others are in the same boat. Lucky for us, that has led to these 36 funniest misheard Taylor Swift lyrics that we all get to now enjoy.

Some of these lyrics that are wrong are relatable and others are just cringe-worthy in the best way. One thing’s for sure, when it comes to the lines in Tay’s songs, we don’t tend to know them All Too Well. Instead, we apparently just shrug about a line here or there and say, “Call It What You Want.”

Enjoy laughing over these Taylor Swift lyrics everyone gets wrong. Just remember, This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things, guys.

36 Funniest Misheard Taylor Swift Lyrics

One Twitter thread began with a good one from Fearless (Taylor’s Version):

“It takes everything in me just to get up each day” is the real lyric.

Honestly, we can hear it too.

“My pennies made your crown” is the correct lyric from the Midnights song “Karma.”

In “Dancing With Our Hands Tied,” Taylor sings “I- I loved you in spite of (deep fears that the world would divide us.)”

This one is “Got a long list of ex-lovers,” from “Blank Space.”

Close! “Bejeweled” features the line “and I miss you, but I miss sparkling.”

We’ll never hear this line the same again.

“He looks so pretty like the devil” is just as common as the “Starbucks lovers” line when it comes to the lyrics everyone gets wrong. Instead, “Cruel Summer” features the line: “He looks up grinning like a devil.”

That would be an interesting Easter egg hidden in the “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version)” lyrics.

We have to send everyone the lyrics to “Bejeweled,” ASAP.

This one’s from “Style” off of 1989.

That escalated quickly.

Instead, it’s “I fake a smile so he won’t see.”

The lyric actually goes, “In this passenger seat, you put your eyes on me.”

In “Question…?” off of Taylor’s new album, the line is actually, “Does it feel like everything’s just like second best after that meteor strike?”

I mean…same.

Actually, lately she’s been dressing for revenge—but we agree, Taylor, you do you!

What would we do without those reminders from Mom?

This is another commonly misheard lyric! In “Starlight (Taylor’s Version,)” off of Red (Taylor’s Version), the line is actually, “I met Bobby on the boardwalk summer of ’45.”

That definitely would have been an insane Easter egg. However, “…Ready For It?” began with the opening line, “Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him.”

That second example has the real opening line of: “Draw the cat eye, sharp enough to kill a man.”

In “Out of the Woods,” Taylor sings, “Your necklace hanging from my neck.”

“Sweet Nothing” off of Midnights has the lyric: “Industry disruptors and soul deconstructors and smooth-talking hucksters out glad-handing each other.”

We’re into this version, TBH.

Again, the escalation!!

I mean… if we were busy wearing sombreros, we might not see the news either. Makes sense.

The line is really, “You look like my next mistake,” but this is a great alternative.

A death of mysterious circumstances! The lyric of “the last great american dynasty” really says, “She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green.”

“Outside they’re push and shoving, you’re in the kitchen humming,” is the correct lyric from “Sweet Nothing” on Midnights. 

While singing about being on the swing in “seven” off of folklore, Taylor sings, “I hit my peak at seven feet in the swing over the creek.”

Now I really want “prolly” in an upcoming TS song.

That would be wild, to say the least. The line is actually, “Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset.”

Ooooh, the drama! But really, it’s “I’ve been having a hard time adjusting” from folklore’s “this is me trying.”

I mean, this is plausible. But it really goes, “They’re bringing up my history, but you aren’t even listening.”

This one’s courtesy of “Speak Now.”

“The lights are off, he’s taking off his coat,” is the lyric from “Style.”
