Taylor Swift – London Boy (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)


“London Boy” is the eleventh track from Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album “Lover”.

The highly anticipated 2019 album “Lover” features 18 tracks on the standard edition, including three singles “ME!” with Brendon Urie, “You Need to Calm Down” and the title track “Lover”. The new album is in stark contrast to Taylor’s previous album, “Reputation,” released in 2017, which focused on speaking out against enemies. At this time, however, Taylor Swift is in love, and this is reflected throughout the album.

“London Boy” is probably an ode to Taylor’s current boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn. The 28-year-old actor was born and raised in London, UK.

The intro to “London Boy” is an excerpt from Idris Elba’s dialogue with James Corden on The Late Late Show. Then the song changes to a classic Pop tune with a cheerful vocal track.

The first half of the first verse is about how much Taylor Swift loves her homeland, the United States of America. She names Bruce Springsteen, the icon of American rock, classic trendy American jeans, classic whiskey from Tennessee and Southern California the classic image of what America is meant to be. But it only took a laugh, a British accent and face dimples for Taylor to fall in love with the UK.

Taylor Swift obviously sings about her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn in this track. However, she also has a dating history with the London Boys – her ex-boyfriend was movie star Tom Hiddleston, who is also based in London. Several returning lovers, Taylor Swift dated Harry Styles, also from London.

In the song’s chorus, Taylor confirms the “rumors” of his date with Joe Alwyn. Taylor and Joe went to great lengths to keep their love life under the radar, and it was a success. Despite several occasional spotting since 2016, the two have barely been publicized. Therefore, their relationship is still at its lowest.

Taylor Swift continues to confess her love of England by name, dropping a few other British things and places – Brixton, rugby, pubs, Camden Market, Tea, West End, Highgate, Shoreditch, Hackney and so on. She is so in love with this London Boy!
