Where Do Babies Come From Lyrics
I've got a question
Mommy I wanna know
Where do babies come from
Do they come from rainbows and love
Tell me please
Where do babies come from
They come from boys who wanna sit on their ass
They come from...

I personally don’t think this is about a little girl literally asking her parents about how babies are made. I personally think of it more as a young girl who was sexually assaulted/raped or got pregnant too young and now is thinking back to her youth and how her mother/father told her babies come from rainbows and love when really they come from boys who take things they don’t own and girls who want to grow up too fast

In the lyrics “Boys who take things they don’t own.” I think it’s about boys making girls do things they don’t want to...sexually wise...and I think where it says, “girls who want to grow up to fast.” That it’s saying maybe they dressed up and showed too much skin in a term of growing up to fast.

I could be wrong, I like this song in particular but I don't know a whole lot about Melanie Martinez.
Regardless, I thought of this song as a lot more metaphorical than a lot of these other answers. To me it seemed like a song about harsh and depressing realities, the innocence of children being ruined by the cruelty of society. Or maybe bad parenting, ruining their child's spirit with the harsh cruelness of their own experiences, deppresion, and world views.
Not a girl literally asking where babies come from and getting that as an answer, but just how the innocence and purity of children and how they see the world as somewhere safe and happy can be ruined by people being blunt and cruel and inflicting harsh realities on young minds not ready to understand them.
Not that everything's really like how the song says, it's more specific than that. But what's mentioned are things that really do happen, and people inflicting their personal pain on young children does happen. It's sad and dark, it's awful. But I think that's what this song's about, conveyed in a manner that shows innocence and sweetness, then the blunt and cruel ruining of it.
That's just how I saw it though.

i love this song, so much, but im quite confused. Does anyone know what the part about ‘demons on lust’ mean?

I agree with everyone else but my interpretation is a bit different. The little girl asked the mum first because she feels more comfortable with a women figure, but the mum was on drugs so she gave the child the hard truth. Then she remembered what her dad said about babies coming from the sky. Then a few years pass and the girl gets raped. Then she tells her mum what she has gathered about babies. It’s a really sad story.

A little girl asks her parents where do babies come from and then mother told her truth which means when mom finished she said ''sex'' and then the father one which means he hunted her feelings (i don't remember lyrics).

A girl asking her mom where do babies come from but her mom doesn't wanna tell her about sex and neither does her dad. And they tell it to her in a mean way.

I think the song is about a little girl asking her parents WDBCF? And first both parents give messed up responses then when their both in the same room they try to give a nice one but the damage is already done to the little girl
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

What I believe it means is a little girl wants to know where babies come from and her mom doesn’t tell her because she wants to hide something and then the girl gets sad then she says to herself how he dad said they come from the sky and how she ask her step-dad then he gives his POV and he says hurtful things and make her sad
It sounds like a sad song to me but it’s good

WDBCF Is about a girl asking her mom where do babies come from? In the middle part, she is telling us, "here comes delivery, babies, Daddy magically appeared, it's moms ghost/curse." This shows that the dad is dead, whether or not this song is pointing to Crybaby or not. This seems to take place after Sippy Cup, because Crybaby is asking her mom and her dad is dead. At the end, it states, "What a lovely little mess I made, I throw milk on the walls in rage, oh, I'm trying to forget the pain.." This means that she goes out of control and makes a mess of things, because she can't get the correct answer out of her mom. So she's trying to forget the pain of not knowing the answer, so she feels misarable and she needs to know the answer REAL bad.
