About 'Boots'

Artist: Bonnie Kellett

Producer: Govinda Doyle

Writers: Bonnie Kellett

Release Date: Feb 18, 2022

'Boots', which was penned by Kellett, and produced by ARIA award-winning producer Govinda Doyle (Angus and Julia Stone) made quite a first impression when it hit the iTunes charts on release day (#2 Country, #32 All Genres).

‘Boots’ is an anthem about reclaiming your power and self-worth when others try to bring you down. Inspired by struggles experienced in her own life, the song is a fresh take on the saying “you’re getting too big for your boots” that is often thrown around when a person tries to break free.

Kellett wanted to inspire others to reclaim their self-worth, despite what other people have to say about it. The song was inspired by Alanis Morrisette’s ‘You Oughta Know’ and Shania Twain’s Country/Rock/Pop vibes. A song about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, owning who you are, and moving onwards and upwards.

Lyrics

Verse

All I wanted was a happy ending

Instead of the hero I picked the villain

But us strong women we know in turn

That if you play with fire then expect to get burnt

 

Sure you're a big star but no one cares

Heard you're now playingto empty tables and empty chairs

Your love was here and gone so fast

Time to watch me go Alanis Morrisette on your ass

Your love was a stainI won't do it again, no

 

Chorus

You want this Diamond in the rough

Well baby you ain't good enough

Show your hands I call your bluff

A caught out wolf you huff and puff baby

Yeah now that we're through

I didn't get too big for my boots they just got too big for you

 

Verse

It takes gods like you for us mortals to

Get down on our hands and knees and beg for you

Now when I see your face and that dirty smirk

Reminds me that you lay there and I did all the work

 

You said I told her that chip on her shoulder

Was in my opinion as big as a boulder, yeah

But haters gonna hate, my chip is fricking great

Thanks for all you gifted, you just got swifted

I made the gradeWith beauty and brains

 

Chorus

You want this Diamond in the rough

Well baby you ain't good enough

Show your hands I call your bluff

A caught out wolf you huff and puff baby

Yeah now thatwe're through

I didn't get too big for my bootsthey just got too big for you

Yeah now baby

Bridge

Communication turns into

Misinterpretation and a

Illustration of my

Reputation that's not me

Chorus

You want this Diamond in the rough

Well baby you ain't good enough

Show your hands I call your bluff

A caught out wolf youhuff and puff baby

Yeah now that we're throughI didn't get too big for my boots

They just got too big for you
