Mosquito, mosquito
Buzzing around
Landing on my knee
How can I truly be angry with you?
All you want is to be part of me

Now we are lying and counting the leaves
Underneath our tree
How can I truly be angry with you?
All you want is to be part of me
You love like no human could
You love like no human should

Poison, the poison, I taste on your lips
Makes the apple red
Wouldn't you love if I fell like Snow White
Slumbered in your bed?
You love like no human could
You love like no human should

You love like no human could
(are you poison, are you poison, are you poisoning me?)
You love like no human should
(are you poison, are you poison, are you poisoning me?)

Are you poison?
Are you poison?
Are you poisoning me?

Are you poison?
Are you poison?
Are you poisoning me?

Are you poison?
Are you poison?
Are you poisoning me?

How can I truly be mad
When all that you want is to be
When all that you want is to be
Part of me?

    General CommentTo me, the "mosquito" is one of those puppy dog crushes that you know you will never like back. Everyone's had or seen a relationship like that. He's usually a sort of nerdy kid, but very sweet, constantly there, irritating the narrator, but she can't really get mad at him because all he wants is to be with her. And even though she doesn't like him back, she likes the attention that she gets from him, because nobody else cares so much about her. She probably even thinks of him as a friend. The narrator likes flirting with him too, to raise her confidence. "Wouldn't you love if I fell like Snow White?" She might even be falling for him, just a little, but she knows that she can't give in because the other kiddies at school would make fun of her. So she blames him for "poisoning" her with his affection, and with the confidence and happiness it gives her. She probably also feels guilty because she keeps breaking his heart, although I don't see it in this song. I don't know if that's what Ingrid Michaelson intended, but that's how I interpret it, anyway.
