"Missed Me" as written by and Amanda Palmer....
Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, I might tell my sister
If I tell her, mister, she might tell my mother
And my mother, mister, she might tell my father
And my father mister, he won't be too happy
And he'll have his lawyer come up from the city and arrest you, mister
So I wouldn't miss me if you get me, mister, see

Missed me, missed, me now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, you must think I'm pretty
If you think so, mister, you must want to fuck me
If you fuck me, mister, it must mean you love me
If you love me, mister, you would never leave me
It's as simple as can be

Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you miss me, mister, why do you keep leaving?
If you trick me, mister, I will make you suffer
And they'll get you, mister, put you in the slammer
And forget you, mister, then you'll miss me, won't you?
Won't you miss me? Won't you miss me? Won't you miss me?

Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, take responsibility
I'm fragile, mister, just like any girl would be
And so misunderstood, so treat me delicately

Missed me, missed me, now you've gone and done it
Hope you're happy in the county penitentiary
It serves you right for kissing little girls
But I will visit, if you miss me, say you miss me

How's the food they feed you?
Do you miss me?
Will you kiss me through the window?
Do you miss me, miss me?
Will they ever let you go?
I miss my mister so

    General CommentI don't think I'm right, but I thought this song was about a little girl who threatens to claim an older man molested her as a means of coercing him into some kind of relationship. Creeped me out.

    My InterpretationI feel like the song is about a girl, possibly a young girl and an older guy. And the girl is emotionally immature. I'm not even sure that the guy likes her. I think it's like the fantasy of a girl who has a crush on a guy and then believes (mistakenly) that the two of them will be getting married soon. Only in the case of this girl, she may look sweet, but she's got a dark and sinister side, so her fantasy veers off course to the point where her love is locked up in the slammer because of her. She seems to be relishing this, because then "mister" will really miss her.

    I don't think it has anything to do with abuse. How would the lines below make sense?

    but i will visit if you miss me
    do you miss me? MISS ME??


    do you miss me
    will you kiss me through the window?
    do you MISS ME? MISS ME??!!
    will they ever let you go???
    i miss my mister so!!!!

    So I think it is about the crazy emotional lives of women. I feel like you can hear it in her tone, and her incredible emotional range throughout the song.

    General CommentPersonally I get this interesting mental image of a Tim Burton claymation style going on where this little girl is just ends up stalking this guy after giving her an innocent kiss. I can just see her innocently (or not so) showing up like The Raven from Poe's story behind the glass with a sweet smile while he sweats away on the other side.

    It's almost like this little sweet "innocent" girl is baiting him as much as she can.

    General CommentI think this songs is about a girl that is in dire need of love... or needing to feel loved, so she picks an older man, then uses the fact that they kissed to pull him farther and farther into this spiral of threats. "You don't do this, and I'll tell my sister, who will tell my mother, father, lawyer."
