Melanie Martinez - Teacher's Pet
Caught the teacher giving his eyes to a student
Pouty, pretty cute, and she bit her lip back to him
Chewing on her nails and her pens while she's dreaming of him
And he's fucking in sin (You know he is)
She said, "It's for all the right reasons, baby
Don't care 'bout grades, just call me your lady
If I pass this quiz, will you give me your babies?
Don't call me crazy
You love me, but you won't come save me
You got a wife and kids, you see them daily
Don't know why you even need me"
If I'm so special, why am I secret?
Yeah, why the fuck is that?
Do you regret the things we shared that I'll never forget?
Well, do you? Tell me that
I know I'm young, but my mind is well beyond my years
I knew this wouldn't last, but fuck you, don't you leave me here
If I'm so special, why am I secret? (Why am I?)
"Teacher's Pet" is the eleventh track by Melanie Martinez that is featured on her sophomore album, K-12. The music video, originally available as part of the film, was separately released on February 5, 2020. The song speaks on pedophilia, grooming, and inappropriate teacher-student relationships. Story-wise, it is about Cry Baby's best friend Angelita having a sexual relationship with their Biology Teacher. She wishes to have a serious relationship with him, however, he only uses her for sexual gratification. She questions why their relationship needs to be kept a secret if he truly believes that she is special and really cares about her. Angelita knows that the relationship is doomed to end, but she still wants to hold onto it, believing that it could be something more.
