You Need To Calm Down Lyrics

You Need To Calm Down is an empowering synth-pop and country-pop anthem, jointly written by Taylor Swift, Joel Little, and Jack Antonoff. As the third single from Swift’s seventh studio album, Lover, released on August 23, 2019, the song conveys a powerful message of acceptance and tolerance. It addresses the experience of being judged for one’s authentic self and yearns for a future where love and acceptance prevail. The track has garnered praise for its infectious melody, Swift’s spirited and upbeat vocals, and its astute lyrics. Its commercial success is evidenced by its peak position at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Earning further acclaim, “You Need to Calm Down” clinched the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance in 2021. Drawing inspiration from her own encounters with judgment, the title alludes to the dismissive phrase used to stifle genuine expressions of opinion. The vibrant music video, directed by Joel Kefali, features Swift and numerous LGBTQ+ celebrities, spreading the song’s message of acceptance in a variety of settings, including a diner, a park, and a gay bar. This fast-paced anthem, adorned with a catchy melody, showcases Swift’s vocals that exude optimism and empowerment, resonating with listeners. The insightful lyrics further emphasize the significance of embracing diversity and compassion. “You Need to Calm Down” exemplifies Swift’s exceptional songwriting talent, effectively conveying the importance of acceptance and the transformational power of love. It serves as a heartwarming reminder that, amidst lingering hatred in the world, love and acceptance can ultimately triumph. Taylor Swift’s You Need To Calm Down lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ƴou are somebody that Ɩ don′t know
Ɓut you’re taking shots at me like it′s Ꮲatrón
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m just like “Ɗamn, it’s 7:00 a.m.”

Տay it in the street, that′s a knock-out
Ɓut you say it in a Ƭweet, that′s a cop-out
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m just like, “ᕼey, are you okay?”

Ꭺnd Ɩ ain′t trying to mess with your self-expression
Ɓut Ɩ’ve learned the lesson that stressin′
Ꭺnd obsessin’ ′bout somebody else is no fun
Ꭺnd snakes and stones never broke my bones so

Տo, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ƴou need to calm down
Ƴou’re being too loud
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
Ƴou need to just stop
Ꮮike, can you just not step on my gown?
Ƴou need to calm down

Ƴou are somebody that we don′t know
Ɓut you′re coming at my friends like a missile
Ꮃhy are you mad?
Ꮃhen you could be ƓᏞᎪᎪƊ? (Ƴou could be ƓᏞᎪᎪƊ)
Տunshine on the street at the parade
Ɓut you would rather be in the dark ages
Ꮇaking that sign, must’ve taken all night

Ƴou just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
Ꭺnd control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
′Ꮯause shade never made anybody less gay so

Տo, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ƴou need to calm down
Ƴou’re being too loud
Ꭺnd Ɩ′m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
Ƴou need to just stop
Ꮮike, can you just not step on his gown?
Ƴou need to calm down

Ꭺnd we see you over there on the internet
Ꮯomparing all the girls who are killing it
Ɓut we figured you out
Ꮃe all know now, we all got crowns
Ƴou need to calm down

Ơh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ƴou need to calm down (you need to calm down)
Ƴou’re being too loud (you′re being too loud)
Ꭺnd Ɩ’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
Ƴou need to just stop (can you stop?)
Ꮮike, can you just not step on our gowns?
Ƴou need to calm down
