Wait, Is Taylor Secretly on Beyoncé's New Album?Instagram

Beyoncé's Cowboy Carter has arrived!!!!! And it's a genius, 27-song album with collabs from Willie Nelson, Linda Martell, Shaboozey, and Miley Cyrus—plus, maybe (?!) background vocals from Taylor Swift. At least, that's the general vibe according to fans who are fully convinced her voice is featured in the track "Bodyguard."

Here's the song so we can all get on the same (slightly hysterical and fully not chill) page:

I could be Taylor? Or, it could be someone else. Either way, the speculation appears to be due to Tay's name appearing on the Genius lyrics page for "Bodyguard"—which, keep in mind, can be edited!

For what it's worth, as of writing this article, the credit is no longer there:

Check out the full lyrics of the song (via Genius) below!

One, two, three, four
Ooh-ee-ooh, ah

[Verse 1]
So sweet
I give you kisses in the backseat
I whisper secrets in the backbeat
You make me cry, you make me happy, happy (Happy)
Leave my lipstick on the cigarette
Just toss it, and you stomp it out, out, out
Inhalin' whiskey when you kiss my neck
We've been hurtin', but it's happy hour, oh, hour
Oh, oh, oh

They couldn't have me (Ah)
And they never will
And sometimes I hold you closer
Just to know you're real (Ah)
Wheels in the gravel
Davis in my bones
Sometimes I take the day off (Ah)
Just to turn you on
On, on, oh

Honеy, honey
I could be your bodyguard (Hey)
Oh, honеy, honey
I could be your Kevlar (Huh)
Oh, honey, honey
I could be your lifeguard (Huh)
Ooh, honey, honey
You should let me ride shotgun, shotgun
Oh, oh, oh

[Verse 2]
Be your best friend
I protect you in the mosh pit
And I'll defend you in the gossip
You know how people like to start shit and pop shit
I don't like the way she's lookin' at you
Someone better hold me back, oh-oh
Chargin' ten for a double and I'm talkin'
I'm 'bout to lose it, turn around and John Wayne that ass (One, two, three, four)

They couldn't catch you (Ah, with me)
And they never will (You see)
Sometimes I hold you closer
Just to know you're real (Ah)
Tell me your problems (I got you)
I take how you feel (Mm, huh)
I show you an exit (Ah)
When you're restless I take the wheel
Ooh, oh, oh
Honey, honey
You could be my bodyguard (Huh, uh)
Oh, honey, honey
Will you let me ride shotgun? Shotgun
Oh, oh, oh

Oh (Ah)
Oh (Ah)
I could be your bodyguard
Please let me be your Kevlar (Huh)
Baby, let me be your lifeguard
Would you let me ride a shotgun? Shotgun
Oh, oh, oh
One, two, three, four
