Emma Blackery - Petty Lyrics




I tried to write a song about you, to take you down
But you know where I am is what you hate about me now
I've heard the things you've said, calling yourself my ex-boyfriend
To anyone who would listen, so what's this about?

Cause you used to call me pretty til you took out the r
Said "girl you couldn't be more petty than you already are"
Are you mad cause I wrote songs about you breaking my heart?
Cause boy you used to call me pretty til you took out the r
I'm singin' like
I'm singin' like

Thought we were cool until I saw you take me off your phone
It's been so long, you've still not moved out of your parents' home
Don't wanna see me now, but you're so happy goin' round
Recalling how we screwed around, now you're all on your own

Cause you used to call me pretty til you took out the r
Said "girl you couldn't be more petty than you already are"
Are you mad cause I wrote songs about you breaking my heart?
Cause boy you used to call me pretty til you took out the r
I'm singin' like
I'm singin' like
I'm singin' like

Baby, you're welcome, for the press shots and the parties
That my name will get you into when I play this song about you
And you know that I don't hate you, though I've got reason to
Cause boy I miss your mother's dinners more than I miss you
I'm singin' like
I'm singin' like

  10. Jack Thornton 1400

    BBOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPPP

  11. Charlotte Erin

    Loving the lyrics so much!

  12. EpicSpaceDorito

    reminds me of love your self by jb

  13. highdrainkey

    In the comments: "This reminds me of Justin Bieber" "This reminds me of George Ezra" "This reminds me of Ed Sherran" "This reminds me of AJR" -- so I guess it has a lot of different influences-- like literally any song that currently exists.

    WhiskeyBrewer

    I thought Uncle Kracker for the chorus myself lol

    Ukko Ylijumala

    What is the point of this comment lmao

    highdrainkey

    @Ukko Ylijumala ? What is the point of your comment?

    Ukko Ylijumala

    Why are you stating this? This is a pretty casual 4 chord pop album so of course it will sound like lots of other artists. Isn't this pretty self explanitory? If people are saying that the song reminds them of a different artist they don't mean no harm with it, they're just pointing it out. Lots of Emma fangirls like to defend her every action but there's even nothing here to defend lol, nobody is attacking her in any way as far as I can see.

    highdrainkey

    @Ukko Ylijumala  aren't I allowed to make a statement just like anyone else? I am by no means a fangirl. You basically just said the same thing to me that I commented in the first place I'm not defending or attacking just making a statement based on what I saw in the comments.

  14. Nathan Coyle

    Emma Blackery is amazing what a fantastic song

  15. La Ans

    Love her but this song is a ripoff of love yourself lol

    Luna

    It doesn't sound like Love Yourself at all to me.

    La Ans

    @Gina it's not just the sound it's the lyrics
    Emma: "you're welcome for the press shots and the parties that my name will get you into"
    Justin/ed: "and all the clubs you get in using my name"
    Emma: "I miss your mother's dinners more than I miss you"
    Justin/ed: "my mama don't like you and she likes everyone"

    Gina

    @La Ans True true. It's still a good song, I wouldn't call it a rip off though. It's got some good lines to it.

    Mia T

    The difference is Emma can actually sing

    Gina

    @Mia T I think Justin Bieber can sing

  16. Joe

    Sounds kinda like love yourself

  17. matthew walker

    Plot twist emma can do chill

  18. kirsty bt

    Kinda reminds me off George Ezra's song, the part where she says, I'm singing like... Can't remember which one tho

  19. YodatheHobbit

    Nice clever lyric there Emma removing the r from pretty and it becoming petty.

  20. Ella Williams

    THIS IS SO GOOD

    La Ans

    well it reminds me of love yourself which he wrote for bieber

    YodatheHobbit

    By what??? Guitar in a song? Hahah.

    Joe

    @YodatheHobbit No 😂 as the commenter above stated, it sounds like love yourself in the first verse.

    La Ans

    @Joe plus the lyrics
    Emma: "you're welcome for the press shots and the parties that my name will get you into"
    Justin/ed: "and all the clubs you get in using my name"
    Emma: "I miss your mother's dinners more than I miss you"
    Justin/ed: "my mama don't like you and she likes everyone"

    Harry Hockjne
