Copycat Lyrics

Don't be cautious, don't be kind
You committed, I'm your crime
Push my button anytime
You've got your finger on the trigger, but your trigger finger's mine

Silver dollar, golden flame
Dirty water, poison rain
Perfect murder, take your...

    I think...
    Well, it's like...
    There was this girl who was copying Billie..
    Billie doesn't like that....
    So Billie doesn't like the fact that someone was copying her and she wants it to stop.

    It also basically says: Be yourself.

    Billie stated in an interview that this was about a girl who was copying everything she did - her clothes, her style, everything. She was really angry about it so she and her brother decided to write a song about it. And COPYCAT was born.

    Because all you say
    Are all the same things I did.

    This is about the people who copy Billie and she doesn't like it. they try to copy her so much that they get hurt.

    Watch your back
    When you can't watch mine.

    No one can help Billie through everything, some people are so amazed by her glamour they try to help save her at all costs which hurts them in turn.

    Basically Billie found people that are copying her style of life and clothes. Trying to be just like her. And she does not like it.

    There was a girl who was copying Billie. She found out and brought the matter up to her brother, FINNEAS, and declared that she wanted to write about it.

    Also, fun fact about the chorus- part of it was originally “f— that b— you can’t have mine” but she changed it because she thought about the young listeners and realized that even she was young. Then the lyrics changed to “why so sad bunny can’t have mine?”

    Billie is trying to say that she's angry about the copycats that are trying to copy her style and stuff, that should be the meaning of the song (I guess). Love u Billie

    I think this song is about how someone is jealous of Billie so they decide to copy her and make others dislike her. Then her and her brother wrote a song about it. Such a great song.

    To me all the songs that Billie writes are inspiring, they are just amazing. She inspires me everyday to write my own songs. They are not very good, but I try. She is just my number one role model. Her style makes me feel like I can do anything. I love Billie Eilish So much! I wish she could see this. Lmao I dm her telling her how much I love her haha. Like she reads those. Anyway, I love you Billie. <3

    This song sounds like it's singing about a girl who copies Billie Eilish. And Billie doesn't like it so she writes a song about the girl.

    The girl is a fake and tries copying her and stealing her style but Billie doesn't like it and stops her.

    Billie noticed the girl who copied her and did something about, and that's why I love her so much. This is also one of my favorite songs because it has meaning and it doesn't just exist for the sake of existing. That's another reason why I love her, she puts meaning behind her songs, unlike for example, "Seven Rings" by Ariana Grande. It doesn't really have any meaning, it's just to exist and make her more popular. Thanks for reading!

    The song copycat is about how billie noticed this one girl who was copying everything she did, and got mad about it. She was also confused why someone would want to be her because billie doesn't even like herself. So then she wrote copycat with her brother Finneas.
