“The Last Great American Dynasty” Song by Taylor Swift

The Last Great American Dynasty

Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train
It was sunny
Her saltbox house on the coast
Took her mind off St. Louis
Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
And the town said, “How did a middle-class divorcée do it?”The wedding was charming, if a little gauche
There’s only so far new money goes
They picked out a home and called it “Holiday House”
Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
The doctor had told him to settle down
It must have been her fault his heart gave out And they said
“There goes the last great American dynasty”
“Who knows if she never showed up, what could’ve been”
“There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen”
“She had a marvelous time ruining’ everything”Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set
Forever
Flew in all her Bitch Pack friends from the city
Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
And losing’ on card game bets with Dalí And they said
“There goes the last great American dynasty”
“Who knows if she never showed up, what could’ve been”
“There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen”
“She had a marvelous time ruining’ everything”They say she was seen on occasion
Pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea
And in a feud with her neighbor
She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
50 years is a long time
Holiday house sat quietly on that beach
Free of women with madness, their men and bad habits
And then it was bought by me Who knows if I never showed up what could’ve been
There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen
I had a marvelous time ruining’ everything I had a marvelous time ruining’ everything
A marvelous time ruining’ everything
A marvelous time
I had a marvelous time
