Play, play, playing with Taylor Swift’s lyrics

This, from McSweeney’s, is just fun, fun, fun to read:

“Taylor Swift: A Socratic Dialogue”

An excerpt:

SOCRATES: But might people change? Couldn’t something convince the player to stay, stay, stay rather than play, play, play?

SWIFT: Ah, but you see Socrates, it is not the player that decides to stay, stay, stay. Rather, the player becomes a stayer when he ceases to play, play, play.

SOCRATES: So then one must eliminate the other. A player can never stay, stay, stay because, according to you, he would then be a stayer and not a player.

SWIFT: That is correct.
