  • Strange to think the songs we used to sing
    The smiles, the flowers, everything
    Is gone
    Yesterday I found out about you
    Even now just looking at you
    Feels wrong
    You say that you'd take it all back
    Given one chance; it was a moment of weakness
    And you said "yes"

    You should've said no
    You should've gone home
    You should've thought twice before you let it all go
    You should've known that word like what you did with her
    Would get back to me (get back to me)
    And I should've been there
    In the back of your mind
    I shouldn't be asking myself why
    You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
    You should've said no
    Baby, and you might still have me

    You can see that I've been cryin'
    Baby, you know all the right things
    To say
    But do you, honestly
    Expect me to believe
    We could ever be the same?
    You say that the past is the past
    You need one chance; it was a moment of weakness
    And you said "yes"

    You should've said no
    You should've gone home
    You should've thought twice before you let it all go
    You should've known that word like what you did with her
    Would get back to me (get back to me)
    And I should've been there
    In the back of your mind
    I shouldn't be asking myself why
    You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
    You should've said no
    Baby, and you might still have me

    I can't resist
    Before you go, tell me this
    Was it worth it?
    Was she worth this?

    No, no
    No, no, no, no

    You should've said no
    You should've gone home
    You should've thought twice before you let it all go
    You should've known that word like what you did with her
    Would get back to me (get back to me)
    And I should've been there
    In the back of your mind
    I shouldn't be asking myself why
    You shouldn't be beggin' for forgiveness at my feet
    You should've said no
    Baby, and you might still have me Writer/s: Taylor Swift

  • Piper from San Franciscoand I appreciate my women on here, but I have to take an exception to the song, should've said no, is a song about street tacos that you cannot trust, 28 may 2019 I should've said no, but my large intestine was not shy and did answer for me, I was not warned about what came next I was the victim of bowel expression, when a body part becomes self aware and acts on its own, in this case to discharge the ingredients of my large intestine on the sidewalk, I should've said no, no kidding, experience like this is bought and paid for one taco at a time.
