Teacher's Pet Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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 f**king in sin (You know he is)

She said,...

    "Teacher's Pet" is about Crybaby's friend, who is crushing on a teacher. "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?..." Talks about how the student gets good grades through sex. "Teacher's pet / 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?" Is about how the student starts to question the relationship a bit, asking why she is kept a secret if the teacher seems to value her so much. "Give me back my money / Didn't learn a damn thing, honey, from you / Except how to lie and cheat while inside the sheets / Stop calling me "your bunny" / I won't hop and you don't own me / Do you? I bet you think you do
    / Well, you don't" Is the point where the student starts to realize her mistake in following what the teacher was telling her to do, and that she started to stand up for herself.

    Its about a sexual relationship between a student and a teacher, but the student is torn between being in love with him and the unavoidable truth that he is only using her for sexual gratification. It seems she wants an actual relationship which is why she is so frustrated.

    What i think this is about is how sometimes Students like the one shes talking about Have sex or do sexaul things to get good grades. If that's not the reason I think the teacher is just a creep and likes to fuck younger people than them. In the music video he looks at a picture of his wife's and kids and slams the picture down on his desk softly. And then at the end he gets a lollipop and dips it in what seems like poison and gives it to her and she turns small. In the next scene she is Naked what this could mean is Rape (which is so bad)And the teacher has a poking tool which he okes on her this could mean what people do during rape just poking their naked body. While the students Screaming and yelling for help which is what happens in rape. eventrul Crybaby walks in and saves her.

    This song is about an inappropriate relationship with the teacher and student.
    But the student is too in love with the teacher to even realize that they groomed by someone much older then them.
    This song talks about how Crybaby’s friend just wants to actually have a relationship, instead of anyone just using them for their body.
    But I think that the student was too gullible :P

    Crybaby’s friend is in a sexual relationship with her teacher, for the good grades. But, she also just wants love. Unfortunately, she can’t see that the teacher is only using her for her body and sex. He is manipulating her into thinking this is a good and healthy relationship, although it’s not.

    This song is about Cry Baby's best friend Angelita who's in an illegal student-teacher relationship. "If I'm so special, why am I secret?" implies that Angie is wondering why; if the Biology Teacher thinks she's so amazing and special, why is he keeping it secret? "I knew this wouldn't last, but fuck you, don't you leave me here" means that Angie knew their relationship was doomed to end, but she still wanted to latch on. It broke her heart when she found out that the Biology Teacher was only dating Angie to have sex with her, when this felt like an actual relationship to her.

    Although it is about student x teacher, I think it's more about gr@@ming itself. How an older person takes advantage of a younger persons feeling and thoughts. And they are finally realizing how bad the relationship is.

    The song is about pedophilia. How older people target younger people and play with their mind while the younger person is wondering if the person actually cares about them or is only with them because they are easy.

    To me, I feel like the student rly loves the teacher. All the student wants is love but to him?? He only wants her body.

    I think "Teacher's Pet" is about a student who has an inappropriate sexual relationship with the married teacher. Who is in all reality grooming her, but she's so in-love with him that she is obviously to it. Until Crybaby points it out and that's when the friend finally realizes it.

    My interpretation is that the student is having sex with the teacher just to get good grades. Or could be that a student found or about this and is keeping it a secret for blackmail either way i think the student is having sex with the teacher just to get good grades.

    This song is about inappropriate teacher and student relationships.
    Crybaby’s friend is to gullible and in love to realize that he’s just using her and that it’s not real love.

    This song talks about inappropriate student-teacher relationships. The student feels trapped in the relationship, and are too much in love to realize that the teacher is insane to even be in a relationship with someone so much younger then them.
