That Nashville Night

Taylor Swift called on the phone, she wanted to write some songs with me
I was like, hold up pretty baby I’m not like the other men in Tennessee
I don’t have a pickup truck, It’s a Chevy Malibu LT
I only know you from your songs and watching your videos on TV
But she insisted it would be great, so I flew down from BloNo on a Tuesday
We both brought our notebooks, couldn’t believe I was her protege
And we wrote until about Midnight – about six or seven tracks
On that Nashville Night, we were a couple of songwriting maniacs

Songwriting maniacs,
Taylor Swift and I
on that amazing Nashville Night had been
two wild and crazy songwriting maniacs

Bridge:
And the studio loved all of those cleverly written songs, we were so damn proud
Then we recorded all of them in a few days and uploaded them to the cloud
A few nights later, we were freaking out, someone leaked them to iTunes
So I suggested we take a trip out to Watsonville and stay at the Pajaro Dunes

Then I was woken up from that dream to my wife and daughters’ screams
They said Taylor Swift just called and had some exciting news to say
Jimmy Kimmel wanted us to do that duet about that one breakup
The crazy one where she calls the guy a dick and a really bad lay
So we played the first song we wrote on Kimmel’s late night show
And we told the story of how it happened because he really had to know
How we were able to write all those fantastic and cleverly written tracks
We said on that Nashville Night, we were a couple of songwriting maniacs

Songwriting maniacs
Taylor Swift and I
On that amazing Nashville Night had been
two wild and crazy songwriting maniacs
