Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did
Ha, Time for a little revenge
Verse:
The story starts when it was hot and it was summer
And, I had it all; I had him right there where I wanted him
She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
I never saw it coming, wouldn't have suspected it
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum
She underestimated just who she was stealing from

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, Whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, Whoa

Soon she's gonna find
Stealing other people's toys on the playground
Won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind,
She should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, Ha

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

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, Whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, Whoa
Soon she's gonna find
Stealing other people's toys on the playground
Won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind,
She should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, Ha ha

[Bridge]
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey
You might have him, but haven't you heard
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey
You might have him, but I always get the last word
Whoa

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, Whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, Whoa
Soon she's gonna find
Stealing other people's toys on the playground
Won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind,
She should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge,

And do you still feel like you know what you're doing,
Cause I don't think you do, Oh
Do you still feel like you know what you're doing
I don't think you do, I don't think you do
Let's hear the applause
C'mon show me how much better you are
See you deserve some applause
Cause you're so much better
She took him faster than you could say sabotage!

    First, the song isn't about Miley Cyrus. If you were really a Taylor Swift fan, you'd know that Taylor Swift is good friends with Miley and would never right a song like that about one of her good friends, plus Miley has never done anything to Taylor. Second, no, Camilla Belle didn't take Taylor Laughtner, she took Joe Jonas. Taylor said goodbye to Laughtner in December, not during the summer. That's what Back To December is about, her apologizing to Laughtner for letting him go.

    She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum. She underestimated just who she was stealing from. I love this line!
    Reason.
    Girls now and days have no morals and respect for themselves. They are on the prowl and don't care who they step on to get it. It's funny though cause when it happens to them in return, they can't understand why it happened, or how in the world that girl could be so heartless when that was exactly who they used to be.! Karma baby!

    The funny thing is that we all have an idea of who "she" is. Actress, rhyme-able name, known for stealing boyfriends, and not being able to be trusted? Oh, and lets not forget the "things she'll do on the mattress"! Miley, maybe? She's not so goody-goody two-shoes any more. I mean, have you seen the can't be tamed video? She takes photos of herself naked. They got leaked. Oh, well. So, guess what? "hannah" was murdered by hollywood fever and now "hannah" is singing in heaven and miley's singing, in, well, the oppisite direction. Yeah, yeah, I'm harsh, hold the comments. Anyone agree? Miley is the culprit?
