“Teacher’s Pet” by Melanie Martinez

Melanie’s Martinez’s “Teacher’s Pet” is a song about an illicit romantic relationship between a student and her teacher. And for the most part, the singer plays the role of the girl in said affair. And to make a long story short, she has fallen in love with him. However she feels that he is not taking her seriously, with the insinuation being that she believes he perceives her as being immature. 

And speaking to the situation in general, she is pissed off. That is to say that she desires to takes this romance from the underground into the light, as in no longer keeping it a secret. But he is obviously against that idea, rather being dedicated to the “wife and kids” he already has. 

So at the end of the day, Melanie displays mixed emotions. On one hand, she feels taken advantage of – and curses the teacher accordingly. But on the other, she obviously has feelings for the guy and fears losing him.

    Yeah, okay, but does she possibly have some sort of connection with the song? Or maybe I am just overthinking it..

      Actually, no I don’t think she does.
      The song was made, much like every other song on the album, to follow the story of the K-12 movie. And in the movie, it’s Melanie’s friend, not her, who is in that relationship.
      I’m not sure if the song stems from something real, but even if it does it was probably something that happened to her friend.


    ok- so melanie usually writes songs that revolve around her life/past so i hope this helps
