Whos Afraid of Little Old Me
Taylor Swift Lyrics


The who's who of "Who's that?" is poised for the attack
But my bare hands paved their paths
You don't get to tell me about sad

If you wanted me dead, you should've just said
Nothing makes me feel more alive

So I leap from the gallows and I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a record scratch as I scream
"Who's afraid of little old me?"
You should be

The scandal was contained
The bullet had just grazed
At all costs, keep your good name
You don't get to tell me you feel bad

Is it a wonder I broke? Let's hear one more joke
Then we could all just laugh until I cry

So I leap from the gallows and I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a record scratch as I scream
"Who's afraid of little old me?"
I was tame, I was gentle 'til the circus life made me mean
"Don't you worry, folks, we took out all her teeth"
Who's afraid of little old me?
Well, you should be

(You should be) You should be
(You should be) You should be
You should be (you should be)
You should be (you should be)
You should be

So tell me everything is not about me
But what if it is?
Then say they didn't do it to hurt me
But what if they did?

I wanna snarl and show you just how disturbed this has made me
You wouldn't last an hour in the asylum where they raised me
So all you kids can sneak into my house with all the cobwebs
I'm always drunk on my own tears, isn't that what they all said?
That I'll sue you if you step on my lawn
That I'm fearsome and I'm wretched and I'm wrong
Putting narcotics into all of my songs
And that's why you're still singing along

So I leap from the gallows and I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a record scratch as I scream
"Who's afraid of little old me?"
I was tame, I was gentle 'til the circus life made me mean
"Don't you worry, folks, we took out all her teeth"
Who's afraid of little old me?
Well, you should be

(You should be) You should be
(You should be) You should be
'Cause you lured me (you should be)
And you hurt me (you should be)
And you taught me

You caged me and then you called me crazy
I am what I am 'cause you trained me
So who's afraid of me?
Who's afraid of little old me?
Who's afraid of little old me?

This whole song feels like a tragic backstory of a villain. Specially when she says “I was tame, I was gentle till the circus life made me mean” I AM LITERALLY SOBBING

@mickversed

this fits so well considering the media views her as a villain in every scenario

@holla7522

Exactly! This is somehow giving Carrie White vibes... Love this song❤

@goofygreta8485

OMG YES someone needs to make an animatic using this song

@ermsy13199

Yes like maleficent vibes

@aliciastarsaturn2841

It’s so sad, I agree. She went through stuff that made this record so relevant

The vocals on this song are just insane! i mean, her screaming “who’s afraid of little old me?” and then the quieter “you should be.” it’s just amazing. she is absolutely a mastermind

It's cause it's an octave higher and lower. Same note different octav. Her belting the higher octave was clear with resonance. Shows her vocal range have really improved.

@violetsky1012

@@beab8738 Yeah, i’m personally a lower mezzo so i’m very happy she’s singing songs in lower octaves now!
