"Alphabet Boy" as written by Melanie Martinez, Timothy Sommers and Jeremy Dussolliet....
You're always aiming paper airplanes at me when you're around
You build me up like building blocks just so you can bring me down
You can crush my Candy Cane but you'll never catch me cry
If you dangle that diploma and I deck you, don't be surprised

I know my ABC's, yet you keep teaching me
I say, fuck your degree, alphabet boy
You think you're smarter than me with all your bad poetry
Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
Spell my name on the fridge now
With all your alphabet toys
You won the spelling bee now
But are you smarter than me now?
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

Apples aren't an always appropriate apologies
Butterscotch and bubblegum drops are bittersweet to me
You call me a child while you keep counting all your coins
But you're not my daddy and I'm not your dolly
And your dictionary's destroyed

I know my ABC's, yet you keep teaching me
I say, fuck your degree, alphabet boy
You think you're smarter than me with all your bad poetry
Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
Spell my name on the fridge now
With all your alphabet toys
You won the spelling bee now
But are you smarter than me now?
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy
My alphabet boy
Oh oh

I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
Spell my name on the fridge now
With all your alphabet toys
You won the spelling bee now
But are you smarter than me now?
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy

    My Interpretationthis song is pretty much a "fuck you" to this boy in her life (presumably a boyfriend) who thinks he's superior in his writing skills ("you think you're smarter than me with all your bad poetry"), and that he needs to teach her ("i know my abc's, yet you keep teaching me") despite the fact that she can already write just fine.

    she doesn't put up with this though, and even writes the verses of this song in alphabetical order to prove herself.

    General CommentCrybaby has grown and she knows she's smart, she thinks differently, she knows she's crazy, more crazy than anyone else but she feels like everybody see her as the weird baby girl who always cries but she's more, she knows way more and she doesn't need anyone to teach her. She doesn't cares of university degrees and studies because college doesn't make you a nice person or any smarter. She believes more in emotional things and that a test don't show how smarter you are so FUCK ALL THE DEGREES AND PPL WHO THINK THEY ARE SMARTER BECAUSE OF THEM.
