Marina and the Diamonds: Seventeen Meaning
But the melody went stale,
Musical cacophony let,
Insy Winsy spider free.
You're a rich little boy,
Who's had to work for his toys,
You've got all the sensibilities, oh,
Of an upper class guy.
No, no I'm not...

I've always thought it was about the day she lost her virginity. She could've been directing this to a boyfriend that thought he could boss her around and use her, however she's cautious and now knows of men like this because of the man that took her virginity may have had similar traits

It is about her relationship with her dad. Her parents split when she was young. She lived with her dad in greece from she was 15 til she was 17.
Her dad told her how to be and to act. Marina was brought up by her mothers side of the family and her father probably didnt think it was good, He questioned the was she was brought up. He thought that she would have been moore ladylike and a little less outspoken. He was embaressed of her.
And she sings of a "Upper class wife". That was probably his dads girlfriend or wife she didnt like.
