They call you Crybaby, Crybaby, but you don't f***ing care.

They call you Crybaby, Crybaby, so you laugh through your tears.

    This song says that a girl named Crybaby has been made fun of and mistreated by her alcoholic mother. She sees that her friend is like her and tries to help push past the hate and push to the good side with her friend.

    It's about Melanie being depressive. She's made fun of for being emotional, but she meets someone who's as weak and lonely as her. She sings about how the pair of them hate everyone else, but she follows her friend's lead and tries to ignore the bullies.

    It's saying cry or do whatever you want no one should judge you for being you they think you are weak but only a weak person would hold in their feelings because if you show you aren't afraid to be laughed at or made fun of you are so strong but everyone else has their own opinion this is just mine❤️

    This is about being overly emotional about everything. Lots of people look at being emotional as a weakness, but Melanie wanted it to be a strength, a compliment. So Cry Baby is about someone who is very emotional, but she doesn't care. (Also, the Cry Baby Album as a whole is about being comfortable with being insane.)

    I think the song 'crybaby' means to not take things so hard on yourself and you shouldn't let others take you down!

    She is a little girl who has a big heart that's taken advantage of.

    Wow. I can't believe you guys look right past the obvious. It's the start of the story of Crybaby. Crybaby is a very emotional person. She is teased so much but she doesn't care.

    I feel the "cry baby" in this song might be a girl who 'cares too much'. She has a big heart but others interpret it as weakness.

    Trying to hide how much the name-calling hurts. That's why she laughs through her tears.
