Brooke Fraser - Betty Lyrics




You got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart
You got your YSL kicks and a red birthmark
In the shape of Canada
That you try to keep a secret

You got a quick clack walk and a cold hard stare
And if your eyes could talk they'd say they just don't care
Before they wander off
To hide inside their sockets

You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

You got a fool-proof plan for a lonely life
You won't be no one's daughter and no drunk man's wife
If a wife at all
It's a silly institution
Or so you keep insisting

You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

You're cool coy, 'bout to stroll, very hip
It's you that's hidden by the expectations
We want to see you, won't you show us where to start?
You're talking trash with your red liquor lips
It's you that tickle in the conversation
Sweet Betty, won't you show us who you are?

You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

You've got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart

  7. Michele Nascimento

    You got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart
    You got your Y.S.L. kicks and a red birthmark
    In the shape of Canada
    That you try to keep a secret

    You got a quick clack walk and a cold hard stare
    And if your eyes could talk they'd say they just don't care
    Before they wander off
    To hide inside their sockets

    You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
    You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
    You've got your secrets
    You've got your regrets
    Darling, we all do

    You got a fool-proof plan for a lonely life
    You won't be no one's daughter and no drunk man's wife
    If a wife at all
    It's a silly institution
    Or so you keep insisting

    You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
    You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
    You've got your secrets
    You've got your regrets
    Darling, we all do

    You're cool coy, 'bout to stroll, very hip
    It's you that's hidden by the expectations
    We want to see you, won't you show us where to start?
    You're talking trash with your red liquor lips
    It's you that tickle in the conversation
    Sweet Betty, won't you show us who you are?

    You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
    You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
    You've got your secrets
    You've got your regrets
    Darling, we all do

    You've got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart

  8. Jayden Lawson

    Canada is to the USA as NZ is to Australia

  9. Bryan Gomez

    It's funny 10 years ago. Every Christian would get on her because her dress was too high

  10. kathy maxted

    Embarrassing

    Flern Flanstonsons

    kathy maxted I'm with you there. I cringed. LOL

    Sarah Guidelli

    why embarrassing?

  11. Melissa Jones

    She says its a birthmark the shape of Canada - Toronto on a hip ie the birthmark

  12. David Nuh Omar

    loooooooooooove it..

  13. Flávia Lorenne

    Canção Perfeita!

  14. Meghana Florence

    I didn't know about Brooke!!? I only know her on worship stage. Nice sone though

  15. Abdul Sirkers

    estas bien linda,bellisima,bonita

  16. eunice mbithi

    beautiful work Brooke.... I wud love to know the story behind this though......

  17. Natalie Herbert

    Is it just me or does anyone else think Brooke looks a bit like Anne Hathaway from Devil Wears Prada?

    Jessica Warner

    Your right, she does resemble her in a way.

    Judicele Fonseca

    +Natalie Herbert I totaly agreed with you! At first look I realised!

    Frank Fielder

    +Natalie Herbert *** Hi Humanity *** In my not so humble opine; Anne Hathaway is easily forgotten, but Brook Fraser is not forgettable. ***Brook is gorgeous**! Brook is smart. Anne H. could resemble Brook but only as the ugly duckling sibling in the same brood/family.

    Diogo Mendes

    It's so true!

  18. Dennis Clyde Acantilado

    Great music and so Brooke..so nice.

  19. wronghysteria

    I think I may be slightly obsessed with this song.

  20. Steevenoo

    Beautiful !!!

  21. Bronwyn Eyeington

    shame on all you haters

  22. Bronwyn Eyeington

    love this song dont get offended when she talks about canada

  23. Alexandra Richardson

    To the Canadians who keep getting offended, she's only mentioning Canada due to it's size. She's talking about big secrets and regrets. Canada is big. The end.

    Bronwyn Eyeington

    totallty agree lol

  24. Галина Стрельцова

    <3      <3     <3     !!!

  29. C. Adaure

    She is so adorable. I love Brooke Fraser❤️

  30. Kylie

    I'm absolutely positive she's NOT insulting Canada. Kiwis love Canada!

  31. Darryl Warren

    I appreciate the shout out to Canada and Toronto, but the more I listened to this song, it seems like she's suggesting that Toronto and Canada in general, are somehow shameful...so shame on you Brooke Fraser!!

    Rika Roasts

    She never said Canada was bad though.

    Larissa Santos

    Cadicus 0lgsylp

    Ol Ie

    shes literally reffering to the fact that the birthmark was big such as Canada is also big. She isnt being shameful to Canada whatsoever

    P Thorpe

    She’s not dissing Canada and Toronto you egg. She’s referring to the size as example 🙄

  32. María Díaz

    but.... If you are a true christians... you will not do the ways of the world.... Romans 12:1 - 2.... Because you are a NEW CREATION.....The word has already spoken...

    mmm... What do you understand in the word TRUE christian?...

    Then, what is the difference between Christians and unbelievers...?

  33. María Díaz

    That's my question too.... you're not alone...

  34. アート

    She's beautiful!!!

  35. Marcelo Costa

    once you are a true christian you cannot be "not christian" anymore. she always had her own career, hillsong band is a ministry not a job

  36. Nico Las

    There were actually 3 of them who wrote this song. The other one was Jon Foreman. Do you know him, Switchfoot's frontman?

  60. María Loreto Palma

    Beautiful Brooke :)

  61. numbperson

    she souns as if she has short tongue but on her album, she doesn't :/

  62. shoulderpads101

    it's a narrative song...Most of the songs in 'Flags' are stories written and co-written by Brooke...she said she wanted to get out of the box and try to be a narrator on her latest album...:)...

  63. Irisedpig

  70. andy chinchilla

    well, im admittedly atheist, but i have nothing against god or religions, but I'd say that her talent got her where she is today, she has a wonderful voice

  71. Mayn Zalik

    Her dress *.*

  72. Marquis McLamore

    This song is awesome

  73. cupcakelover141

    She is also a christian singer who does work for God but that doesn't mean that everything she will sing about will be about GOD. Lastly shes pretty sucessful and only GOD can bring blessings like that.!!! GOD BLESS YOU BROOKE!!

  74. cupcakelover141

    i wanted to comment on wat ppl r saying
    firstly whether or not she dresses well, she is a christian and God is the only one who can judge her. i agree wth comments below that God judges her heart not her outside appearance but i also understand as christians we must represent God in everything we do. Personally i feel like the way she dresses is fine, shes not running around half naked like the rest of the celebrities!! ( britney, beyonce, jessica simpson other alleged christian celebrities)

  75. blackfoxtm

    they speak english in new zealand. brooke is a christian singer and still is christian, just not directly singing about it right now.

  76. Andre Marti

    ... what is the meaning of "You've got Toronto hiding on your hip" ?

  77. Ilaria Rossi

    quanto mi piace Brooke Fraser.....altro che quelle schifo di canzoni tipo Danza Kuduro,Waka Waka o Tacatà......

  78. The Fews

    The video doesn't do the song justice

  79. Alberto Cervantes

    which language does the speak in new zealand?? and is brooke a christian singer???? some one help me please

  80. caj3

    lei è molto bella e anche la voce è bellissima
    ma qualcuno sa dirmi se è scozzese o irlandese? grazie

  87. enis

    Il numero di commenti sul naso denota la grande profondità della maggior parte degli italiani.

  88. TheHarryPotters

    Quanto l'ho cercato sto video,domande su Answers,ricerche su MTV,Wikipedia,l'ho ritrovata per caso.
    La sentii su MTV,la davano spessissimo quest'estate,e ora l'ho ritrovata,per fortuna....che canzone fantastica.....

  89. Gratchev Sarah

  90. Mauro Stura

  92. Dane Rumble

    @LauVanessa0303
    lol thanks for the reply mate. yeah It's pretty clear now. I was just wondering that so many Italian people tend to watch this video. cuz, this artist is actually from New Zealand. hope you don't find any offensive here that's not even my intention mate. Thanks anyway cheers!

  93. Paulien B.

    @PssttCHICKITA if you're going to correct every spelling mistake in every comment on this video, good luck.
