One, two! Hanging out with you guys is enough, I’m starting to do weird melody, weird harmonies
“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep”
“Your love is, your love is,” okay
“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep” [Shellback]
Yeah
[Verse 1]
I’m perfectly fine, I live on my own
I made up my mind, I’m better off bein’ alone
We met a few weeks ago
Now you try on callin’ me baby, like tryin’ on clothes
[Shellback]
(Improvisation that became the pre-chorus)
[Taylor]
Ooh! [Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
[In background]
I have been waiting, waiting
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once
1 Day Later
[Bridge]
Is the end of all the endings? “You try on calling me baby like tryin’ on clothes, salute to me like the American dream,” okay

“- On calling me baby like tryin’ on clothes”
[Pre-Chorus]
Salute to me, I’m your American Queen
And you move to me like I’m a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room
And all the boys with their expensive cars
And their Range Rovers and their Jaguars
Never took me quite where you do
[Taylor (lightly)]
I’m perfectly fine, I live on my own
I made up my mind, I’m better off bein’ alone
We met a few weeks ago
Now you try on callin’ me baby, like tryin’ on clothes
Salute to me, I’m your American Queen
And you –
[Taylor (lightly)]
– own
I made up my mind, I’m better off bein’ alone
We met a few weeks ago
Now you try on callin’ me baby, like tryin’ on clothes
Salute to me, I’m your American Queen
And you –
[Max Martin]
Ahh! [Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa, oh
[Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa, oh
[Verse 1]
I’m perfectly fine, I live on my own…
[Chorus]
The one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
Body and soul, eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh
[Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart

The whole verse? [Shellback]
“Trying on clothes”
[Taylor]
“You try on calling me baby like tryin’ on clothes, salute to me like the American – ”
[Shellback]
“Trying on clothes”
[Taylor]
“Tryin’ on clothes”
[Shellback]
“Tryin’ on clothes”
[Taylor]
“Tryin’ on clothes, salute to me like – ” Okay. [Taylor]
Does it bother you that I’m going, um, uh, “you try on calling me baby like trying on c – -ute to me like the American [dream]?” Can we have it be, like, like, lots of vocals, like, um, like lots of people singing the pre, so they can start saying “sa-lute to me like a-” ’cause I need “salute.” ‘Cause I like that lyric
[Pre-Chorus]
Like trying on clothes, salute to me like the American dream
[Pre-Chorus]
Salute to me, I’m your American queen
And you move to me like a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room
[Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you’re all I want, I’ll never let you go
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa, oh
[Shellback]
You told us that you want a drop chorus
[Taylor]
Yeah
[Shellback]
That first half, maybe drop
[Taylor]
But with the vocoder stuff
[Shellback]
Yeah
[Taylor]
Is there a way we can get to “clothes” faster? My broken bones are mending
With all these nights we’re spending
Up on your roof with a school girl crush
Drinking beer out of plastic cups
Say you fancy me, not fancy stuff
All at once, this is enough
[Chorus]
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa
The Next Day
[Taylor]
“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep”
“Your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep”
Yeah, thanks! Love that!
