Miss Mary Mac, Mac, Mac
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifteen cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants, elephants
They jumped the fence, fence, fence
They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And never came back, back, back
Til the fourth of July, lie, lie, liar

I'm sorry that I'm getting chubby
And I cannot always be happy for you
And I am not some lame sorority queen
Taking you home to meet my Daddy

You collect your trustfund, baby
And I'll be a whore
And we'll pretend we're just the same but
I know I know I know I know that

I, I am hiding
The you I show to you is just a lie
You take what you want, you got what you take
You take what you want, you are what you hate
But I got something man, that yourr fucking cannot buy

You never know what it's like to be alive

I could scream my truth, if I wanted
Right through your lies
But your baseball bat words, razormouth
Carves your initials bloody in my thighs

    General CommentI think this is about a common relantioship between a boy and a girl. He wants her to be pretty, thin, to always smile to him, and to be the kind of conservative girl who'd take him to meet her parents. He thinks he deserves this because he has money, and, because of this, she acts as he wants, but this only makes her some kind of whore.
    She knows she's only acting, lying, and that she could tell the truth, but she's scared that, if she did it, he'd turn violent. He'd answer not with words, but with his baseball bat, and even if he did only talk to her, it'd be words full of hatred, dedicated to dominate her. His violent reaction would make her belong to him, as if she was some kind of object, where he could mark his initials.

    The children's song in the beginning seems to show the way women are forced to stay forever in some kind of fake childhood, unable to grow up and decide for themselves. Even when they're old, they have to depend on someone and act innocent, even thought they're mature enough to live their own lives.
