Milk and Cookies Lyrics
3, 4, baby, won't you lock the door?
5, 6, I'm done with it
7, 8, it's getting late, so close your eyes, sleep the days
Hush, little baby, drink your spoiled milk
I'm fucking crazy, need my prescription...

MY OPINION: i think that the wolf was a kidnapper and a rapist and he was forcing Melanie to make "desert" (witch is probably sex) and she puts him to bed with melationin, because melationion are sleep pills basiclly so she can escape.

When I first heard this song I was terrified, thinking that she was poisoning a baby that she didn't want, but then I realized after watching the Tag, Your It/Milk & Cookies double feature, I realized she was poisoning her captor and breaking free.
Thank God for small miracles!

When she first wakes up from the wolf guy drugging her, she wakes up in a toy box, and mabey thats a symbol of her being just a toy to the wolf to 'play with'

This is what continues after Tag You're it. Crybaby bakes a batch of cookies for her kidnapper, but poisons them. She says things like "Need to put you to bed" and 'Sing you a lull-a-bye where you die at the end" probably planning her escape. "S**t behind the curtain that I'm sick of sugar coating" she's tired of making sure her kidnapper doesn't know what she's doing.

It’s basically a continuation of Tag You’re It (you have to watch both of them to fully understand the song.) In TYI, Crybaby is given a bottle of poison by the cashier who hears her saying that the wolf is trying to kidnap her. Then the wolf kidnaps Crybaby and she wakes up and has to bake for the wolf (possibly sexual). She finds the bottle of poison on the floor and puts it in the cookie dough while the wolf is on the phone and not watching her. Then he eats them and dies, and she leaves after pouring milk on him (probably to degrade him).

In "Tag You're it", Crybaby got kidnapped by the wolf. He could've possibly raped her. He might even be in love with her. And one day she serves him milk and cookies that she poisoned.
She brings the poisonous milk and cookies up to him as a gift. But it's really a trick to kill him.
She runs away after she poisons him.

Crybaby might be killing a abusive boyfriend with poisoned milk and cookies. She probably killed him so she could escape him.

So the song milk and cookies is basically a sequel for tag you're it where Crybaby poisons the wolf who kidnapped her in tag you're it. Crybaby poisons him by giving him milk and cookies.

I think that when she says "think twice before you pick up the phone" pretty much means that if your home alone dont pick up the phone

I think that the wolf is a symbol for a predator that kidnaps children. In Tag your it/Milk n cookies double feature she wakes up in a toy box. The wolf might be using the toys to calm the kids down so that they won't be mad. Milk and cookies may be a sign of ( you know what). The melatonin is to escape her kidnapper.

I agree with all of this stuff I thought of this as he was wanting her to do sexual stuff to him and her trying to get away.

How about the a interpretation from the lyrics, not the video.
She thought of metaphors making the song and a situation.
Not a damn music video.
anonymous Oct 9th, 2017 10:49pm report
My interpretation may be a bit weird, but I'm hoping it will get people to understand the videos. Wolf=Captor(boyfriend or possibly rapist). Melanie (Crybaby) = is being demanded by wolf to make "dessert "(sex?). Milk and Cookies = "dessert " (crybaby was possibly in an abusive relationship) . Melatonin = Poison (No Duh!)
anonymous Oct 3rd, 2017 10:26pm report
i think tag, your it is about melanie (crybaby) trying to get away from an abusive relationship but her boyfriend catches her and the candy/icecream is him threatening her so in milk and cookies she kills her boyfriend to escape him
anonymous Aug 29th, 2017 8:33pm report
I think the song true meaning is Melanie poisoning her kidnapper by firstly seducing him to bed and killing him when he falls asleep.

This song is a continuation of Tag, You're It where Crybaby's kidnapper (the Big Bad Wolf) forces her to make cookies for him and she does what she's told but she uses the poison she was given by the cashier in Tag, You're It and poisons him to escape. SHE WAS SUCCESSFUL!!!! (:

I think Milk and Cookies refers to Melanie being in an abusive relationship, maybe referring to "milk and cookies"as some sort of sexual interaction that she was forced into, the wolf maybe being her captor or boyfriend. If you see the music video and listen to Tag, You're It and Milk and Cookies, I think people would understand what she was trying to explain better.

I think it was about cry baby being in an abusive relationship and the wolf forced her to make dessert for him ,which I think is a metaphor for sex but she poisoned him and escaped the relationship.
