'Betty'

Betty, I won't make assumptions about why you switched your homeroom
But I think it's 'cause of me
Betty, one time I was riding on my skateboard when I passed your house
It's like I couldn't breathe
You heard the rumors from Inez
You can't believe a word she says
Most times, but this time it was true
The worst thing that I ever did
Was what I did to you

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go f*** myself
Or lead me to the garden?
In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I'm only seventeen
I don't know anything but I know I miss you

Betty, I know where it all went wrong
Your favorite song was playing from the far side of the gym
I was nowhere to be found, I hate the crowds, you know that
Plus, I saw you dance with him
You heard the rumors from Inez
You can't believe a word she says
Most times, but this time it was true
The worst thing that I ever did
Was what I did to you

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go f*** myself
Or lead me to the garden?
In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I'm only seventeen
I don't know anything but I know I miss you

I was walking home on broken cobblestones
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
Like a figment of my worst intentions
She said "James, get in, let's drive"
Those days turned into nights
Slept next to her but
I dreamt of you all summer long

Betty, I'm here on your doorstep
And I planned it out for weeks now but, it's finally sinking in
Betty, right now is the last time
I can dream about what happens when you see my face again
The only thing I wanna do
Is make it up to you

So, I showed up at your party
Yeah, I showed up at your party
Yeah, I showed up at your party
Will you have me?
Will you love me?
Will you kiss me on the porch in front of all your stupid friends?
If you kiss me
Will it be just like I dreamed it? Will it patch your broken wings?
I'm only seventeen
I don't know anything
But I know I miss you
Standing in your cardigan
Kissing in my car again
Stopped at a streetlight, you know I miss you

Sobre Betty

  • La canción "Betty" está completamente relacionada con la historia descrita en el tema del mismo álbum "August", en el que se describe un amor de verano que estaba condenado desde el principio. Los oyentes se enteran de que mientras el amor de verano descrito en la canción estaba sucediendo, el narrador, James, seguía saliendo con su compañera de clase, Betty.

  • Esta canción contiene un enfoque más feminista con respecto a las demás con las que esta relacionada, presentando al narrador como una persona llamada James que no puede confesar sus errores, todo mientras Betty florece por su cuenta y reconoce su propio valor como persona.

  • Desde el punto de vista sonoro, la canción irradia una fuerte nostalgia, mostrando una producción y unos instrumentos que recuerdan a los anteriores proyectos de Taylor como Fearless y Speak Now, ambos álbumes escritos por Taylor en la que ella misma describió como ingenua adolescencia.

  • Los fans especularon que la canción "Betty" es la tercera parte del "Teenage Love Triangle" del álbum Folklore, contando la historia desde el punto de vista de James. Esta historia está precedida por las canciones "Cardigan" y "August".

  • Curiosamente, el género de James nunca está explícitamente descrito en las canciones, James e Inez (mencionados en el pre-coro) son, de hecho, los nombres de las hijas mayores de Ryan Reynolds y Blake Lively, lo que lleva a algunos fans a creer que James podría ser una chica y que el "Teenage Love Triangle" es, de hecho, una historia de amor lésbica.
