Mickey Macaroni hardly ever eats meat
Mickey Macaroni doesn't even eat sweets
Mickey Macaroni never never eats beets
Mickey Macaroni knows exactly what to eat

My hospital room is
Smelling bad but soon he's
Gonna take me home and
Play his saxophone and
Tell me if they broke up
When his girlfriend woke up
Screaming how she hated
Every guy she dated

I knew that he had slipped the
Minute Daddy hit me
Now I'm sad and lonely
And want my maca---RONI

    My OpinionThe first verse is sung by a member of The Residents. The person (character) talking about Mickey Macaroni knows what Mickey eats. There has to be a way that the narrator knows this. These are my theories:

    1. Mickey Macaroni is a celebrity and told people what he eats in an interview.
    2. The narrator knows Mickey Macaroni personally.

    “Mickey Macaroni hardly ever eats meat
    Mickey Macaroni doesn't even eat sweets
    Mickey Macaroni never, never eats beets
    Mickey Macaroni knows what he wants to eat”

    I think these lyrics indicate that Mickey is the type of person who wants to make his own decisions and doesn't like eating the food that other people want him to eat.


    The next two verses are sung by a child.


    “My hospital room is
    Smelling bad but soon he's”
    “Gonna take me home and
    Play his saxophone and”

    The girl in the hospital is waiting for Mickey Macaroni to take her home. I am assuming that the girl singing this line lives with Mickey Macaroni now. This is because her father beat her. Mickey Macaroni is letting her stay at his home with her. He plays his saxophone to make her happy.



    “Tell me if they broke up
    When his girlfriend woke up
    Screaming how she hated
    Every guy she dated”

    I am guessing Mickey Macaroni is a friend or knows the girl’s father. Assuming the girls’ parents are divorced and her Dad has a new girlfriend. The girl wants to know if her father’s current girlfriend broke up with him because he is abusive.


    “I knew that he had slipped the
    Minute daddy hit me
    Now I'm sad and lonely
    And want my macaroni”

    The girl in the hospital is sad because of the events going on in her life with her abusive father. She desperately wants to see Mickey Macaroni because he is the like father figure that she always wanted. ‘

    Overall Mickey Macaroni seems like a nice guy who knows what he wants to eat and loves to play his saxophone to cheer people up.
