Let's face it: the whole world has basically been waiting for a Swifty revenge song since she announced her split from Calvin Harris earlier this year. WELL GUESS WHAT GUYS?! Looks like you might have gotten your wish!

Taylor Swift has penned a new song, called "Better Man"and the lyrics are classic Tay Tayin so much that, they're aimed at a man, and she sounds pretty pissed off. Ooooh the drama.

The track tells the story of a jealous ex-boyfriend, and lyrics include: "I know I'm probably better off on my own / Than loving a man who didn't know what he had when he had it / And I see the permanent damage you did to me / Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic," adding, "I gave you my best and we both know you can't say that/ We might still be in love, if you were a better man."

The song isn't from a new album, thoughit was actually written for country band Little Big Town. In a Facebook Live stream earlier this week, the band admitted that they've "known Taylor since she was in high school," and said, "She sent us this song, and it was one that was really special to her."

Taylor is also pretty excited about the new release, if her social media feed is anything to go by. She uploaded a picture to confirm she was the writer behind the track, captioning it, "Feeling really honored that a band I've loved for so many years decided to record this song I wrote."

This isn't the first time Taylor has written lyrics for a song that isn't hers. Earlier this year, Calvin and Taylor's then-fairly harmonious split turned bitter after she revealed that she had written the lyrics for his hit with Rihanna, "This Is What You Came For."

Calvin responded by tweeting "I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym." He then added, "Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though."

Calvin: your move.
