Taylor Swift‘s cover of Earth, Wind & Fire‘s classic hit “September” was about as exciting as a drunk and sedated turtle napping … so says one of the co-writers of the song.

Allee Willis, who co-wrote “September” with EW&F’s Maurice White and Al McKay, shared her thoughts on Taylor’s rendition Friday during a show in Detroit. 

Here’s what she reportedly said, in part — it’s pretty brutal … “I didn’t really think she did a horrible job. Yes, I felt it was as lethargic as a drunk turtle dozing under a sunflower after ingesting a bottle of Valium, and I thought it had all the build of a one-story motel, but, I mean, the girl didn’t kill anybody.” OUCHHH!!!!!

The criticism went on … “She didn’t run over your foot. She just cut a very calm and somewhat boring take of one of the peppiest, happiest, most popular songs in history.”
