"My Beloved Monster" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
My beloved monster and me
We go everywhere together
Wearing a raincoat that has four sleeves
Gets us through all kinds of weather

She will always be the only thing
That comes between me and the awful sting
That comes from living in a world that's so damn mean

My beloved monster is tough
If she wants she will disrobe you
But if you lay her down for a kiss
Her little heart it could explode

She will always be the only thing
That comes between me and the awful sting
That comes from living in a world that's so damn mean

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la

    General CommentWhy the fuck would a dog disrobe him and lay him down for a kiss?
    Then, making her heart explode.
    That's kinda...beastly. o.O

    I think it's about a guy that's in love with a girl who's really agressive, but underneath it all, she's really sweet, tender, and innocent.

    She makes his life worth while.

    I can relate. [:

    My InterpretationI'm suprised that everyone on here seems to think that this song is about a dog. Despite being such a happy tune, I have always believed this song to describe something really sad. I think this song was written about E's sister, who suffered from schizophrenia and depression. She started to accept her illness and live happily for while, but then her "beloved monster" destoryed her, ultimately motivating her to commit suicide.

    General CommentOn the shrek soundtrack, I'd go with Stoogie's opinion. (Though, I don't quite understand what he was trying to say in the last line, "... what matters is what you lie them." ¿Qué?)

    Eels-fellow (Whatever his name is) was majorly screwd in life. To me, Beloved Monster sounds a little more bitter.

    I can't support it with the lyrics, but that's my interpretation.

    General CommentI love this song and to me it means that his girlfriend may be different, maybe she is totally opposite from him, but he loves for that and loves just being with her.

    General CommentMy beloved monster is tough

    To me it's about a woman that wants companionship and she goes about finding it the wrong way. She's a little monster for that. She is tough, because she was born that way, she will disrobe you, she learned to treat men like men treated her. But underneath it all, she is still a good-natured person, and is hurting herself with acting like a man, when she is a woman.

    I adore the la,la,la,la chorus, you know that means I love you...

    General Commentthis song is, for lack of a more fitting word, "cute". He loves someone so much, someone that is beautiful to him although she is hated or feared by others... and he's so affectionate in the lyrcis and tone, I like this :)

    General Commentyes. xinnieful.
    the "LA LA LA"s are great.
    but the song is wonderful.

    "She will always be the only thing
    That comes between me and the awful sting
    That comes from living in a world that's so damn mean"

    otherwise meaning that even though the world is mean and even though she can be mean, nothing else could mean more to him than her.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me.

    The beloved monster to me is the girl for E who is strange to the world but very lovely to him.

    Going everyhwere together and having a "raincoat" to share which will always protect you and keep you together.

    My beloved monster is tough.... (don't mess with her since she will ruthlessly attack you and she is protective)
    BUT if you lay her down for a kiss...(when he kisses her she will melt and show her sensitive and caring side and be excited, in love)

    She will always be the only thing...No matter what happens or what kind of day you've had, I feel that by looking in the eyes of your beloved monster, it all just doesn't seem that bad.

    I've found my beloved monster and I hope you all do too.

    Only my opinion though, peace

    General Commenti love this song ALOT
    yeah, its about not caring what people think about the person you like. and i love the way its used in shrek (yay shrek!)
    the way he sings it is really sweet, its like he's almost laughing at her because he loves her so much in her stubborness.
    my friend told me that this song reminds him of me!!
    kinda flattered.
    plus, i like the "la la la la la la"s.
