"Pet Names" as written by and Steven Scott/camp Harwell....
Just when I thought everything would be okay
Just when I started to believe that everything was going my way
Out came the cloud from under my feet
Crashing back down to reality
You used to call me pumpkin now I'm Halloween
Remember when I used to be your jelly bean
You used to call me schnookums and shit like that
Now you're after me with a baseball bat

I remember when I used to be the king
Your honey sweety darling baby everything
I used to be your tall dark mystery man
Now I'm just straight up history man

Just when I thought everything would be alright
Just when I started to believe that everything was out of sight
You left me with nothing but a scribbled note
That said I would no longer be your love boat
From here on out my pet name would be X
Your X your X your X

It used to be sugar then it turned into salt
I used to rock your world now I'm standing on a fault line
Lying naked in a hail storm in the dark
You're my little tornado and I am your trailer park
You used to call me names too cute to repeat
Like honey bunch hairy bear and piccolo peet
Goochy goochy goo gaga shit like that
Now you're after me screaming you dirty rat

I don't remember applying for a name change
So why is it you're calling me Mister Deranged
Psycopathic pornographic stinking drunk
Failing fast lying ass worthless punk

You used to call me sweety pie and baby doll
I guess another stud's kicking in my stall
You'll probably call him superman or loverboy
You'll probably disregard him like a broken toy

Just when he thought everything was going his way
Just when he started to believe that everything was hunky dory
He'll look at that cloud that he's standing on
And with an itsy bitsy teeny little almost inaudible squeak
He'll notice
It's gone

From here on out his pet name would be X
Your X your X your X

Sweety pie?
No X
Honey bunch?
No X
Bubble butt?
No X
Pumpkin face?

    General CommentThis song is just tells about a series of pet names that he used to call his former gf, but now they are broken up so now his pet name is "ex"

    lol it's kind of funny.

    My InterpretationI'm surprised that there are really any other interpretations than the obvious...I believe the song is basically just listing off pet names (that his girlfriend used to call him), and then stating the reason why she broke up with him: because he's insane, loves porn or sex, is a drunk, out of a job, probably cheating on her too, and essentially worthless. However, the man's too naive to understand what he did wrong. It goes on to state what he thinks will happen to her next boyfriend - he believes that she's just too picky.

    Any serious meaning to this song aside, I found this hilarious to listen to. I was really laughing out loud; put me in a great mood.

    General CommentNo, no...

    I think the song's about a guy that was pissed off when him ex-girlfriend told him "Honeybunch", "Hairy Bear"... read lyrics!!
