Tag You're It Lyrics

Looking at me through your window
Boy, you had your eye out for a little
"I'll cut you up and make you dinner
You've reached the end, you are the winner"

Rolling down your tinted window
Driving next to me real slow, he said,
"Let me...

    I feel like someone or something is chasing her but that thing keeps on coming back to haunt her and it is turning her crazy.

    This is a statement to the rape culture in American society. It is such a common occurance it is like a game. Everyone knows it is going on but no one will "hear" about it. She is not allowed to speak because of his actions. It is showing our glorified ignorance of a very ugly part of society.

    Tag, You're It is about a little girl walking home from the grocery store and being followed by the "ice cream man(or wolf)". The Wolf is stalking her and catches her attention. He offers her a free ice cream cone, and she takes it. However, the ice cream was drugged. Cry Baby passes out and the Wolf drags her into his truck. From the lyrics, we can infer that Cry Baby is trapped in some form of lair, and that the Wolf is a sex offender or trafficker.

    This song is about how Crybaby goes to buy goods and a cashier gives her poison and then gets kidnapped.

    I think it's about a man who kidnaps Melanie and she gets revenge.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think that a guy is stalking her, he says all the stuff about "if you come with me you'll get candy," and obviously the little girl follows him into the van, and gets kidnapped. She makes a story of an almost-rape and poisoning like a simple game of tag, and maybe she's trying to express most girls' fears in one of her brilliant songs (and maybe her fear too). I'm not sure if this would be correct or not, so please don't hate.

    Melanie is known for songs make a whole story... like in Pacify her she is talking about how she wants blue boy and then is Mrs.Potatoe head she is talking about maybe if she gets plastic surgery blue boy will love her. This song leads on from pity party where she went to go throw away her decor and went to go buy ice cream and the big bad wolf kidnapped her and in milk and cookies she kills her kidnapper with poisoning the cookies and giving him spoiled milk

    If we clean all sort of love or sex sort of sick things and focus how Melanie made this song ,I feel like she is trying to describe that part of her life when she was own trapped inside the demons of her own mind,her bad mind being the wolf stopping her to reach her goals ( or by being too proud as mentioned in the lyrics"You reached till here you are the winner").Its evident in the video where head(brain) was imprisoned inside the glass with the same background where the wolf was there(not having control over her mind,lack of focus)or by the lyrics"you're saying,"Tag you're it..."(I mean how could that wolf say the same words which crybaby herself was saying?)

    If u read the lyrics properly I'm sure it's about some kind of relationship problem. Possibly a psychotic ex boyfriend who she still does love but she knows she has to get away from him hense why she's saying "can anybody hear me.." I think she's looking for some kind of help or advise from someone on the situation. I think he keeps bothering her. Hense pulling up in a car with tinted windows and asking to go for a joyride. You get the idea now. Regardless what it's about it's a fab song!

    So, Crybaby, the girl she talks about, is supposedly stalked by him (the wolf guy) and he kidnaps her, hinting that by saying he has 'some candy for you inside', and when she tries to escape, he chases her, 'grabs het hair and pushed her don't, and takes off with her inside his van. In her song 'Milk and cookies', she kills the wolf by putting poison in the milk/cookies. Not really sure about the second verse, but still, a good song.

    The song says running through the parking lot he chased me and he wouldnt stop tag you're it. So, here she made this story look like the famous game Tag. And we all know Melanie's songs are about kids' struggles, and many kids dissapear because they went into another's car because..that someone told the kid " I got somecandy for you!!" Of course the video isnt like this because, the video must continue somehow her song "Pity party". so she threw away the decorations of her party and went to buy some cerial, then she wanted to buy some ice cream (who whouldnt), the wolf gave her another one, for free, that shows how easy it is for that to happen. And she named it tag you're it because that "guy" was supposed to chase her, so this way she has the meaning and the title, a symbolism title

    I absolutely love Melanie Martinez, just saying. I am positive this song is pretty much about some child predator that sees Crybaby and wants to take her an, well, you know . . . he just doesn't know what he's in for. She's fucking insane herself. (Listen to Milk and Cookies and you'll understand what I mean.)
