Oh My My My
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She said
"I was seven, and you were nine
I looked at you like the stars that shined
In the sky, the pretty lights"
And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
Growing up and fallin' in love
And our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes
And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

Take me back to the house in the backyard tree
Said you'd beat me up, you were bigger than me
You never did, you never did
Take me back when our world was one block wide
I dared you to kiss me and ran when you tried
Just two kids, you and I
Oh, my, my, my, my

Well, I was sixteen when suddenly
I wasn't that little girl you used to see
But your eyes still shined, like pretty lights
And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
They never believed we'd really fall in love
And our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes
And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

Take me back to the creek beds we turned up
Two AM, ridin' in your truck
And all I need is you next to me
Take me back to the time we had our very first fight
Slammin' of doors 'stead of kissin' goodnight
You stayed outside 'til the morning light
Oh, my, my, my, my

A few years had gone and come around
We were sittin' at our favorite spot in town
And you looked at me, got down on one knee

Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle
Our whole town came and our mamas cried
You said, "I do," and I did too
Take me home where we met so many years before
We'll rock our babies on the very front porch
After all this time, you and I

And I'll be eighty-seven, you'll be eighty-nine




I'll still look at you like the stars that shine in the sky
Oh, my, my, my

Overall Meaning

The song "Oh My My My" by Taylor Swift tells a story of a love that started in childhood and evolved slowly over time. The lyrics are filled with memories of simpler time and feelings of nostalgia. The song lyrics refer to a time many years ago when the singer and her future partner were just children playing together. They were the subject of jokes by their parents who imagined them falling in love when they grew up. Even then, there was a sense of inevitability.


As the singer grows up, there are more memories of innocent times spent together. They spent time in a treehouse and talked about kissing each other. As time passes, there are also memories of more mature experiences, such as their first fight and the first time they had sex. Finally, the song ends with the pair reminiscing as elderly people, still in love after all these years.


The song's lyrics convey a sense of longing for a simpler time before adulthood's responsibilities took over, which is where the nostalgic tone comes from. But, it's also a love story that shows the passing of time that may not have always been easy, but the love that they shared with each other never faded. It's a reminder that even when we grow old, true love never dies.
