Melanie Martinez (K-12) – Show & Tell Lyrics

Show & Tell by Melanie Martinez (K-12)


You pull me by my hair so I don’t go nowhere
Tell me you love me, but you treat me like I’m never there
You say the cruelest words, you used to break my heart
‘Cause I’m over here working my a-- off

Why is it so hard to see? (Why?)
If I cut myself, I would bleed (Kill me)
I’m just like you, you’re like me
Imperfect and human, are we?

Show and tell
I’m on display for all you f------ to see
Show and tell
Harsh words if you don’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell (Buy and sell me, baby)
Like I’m a product to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you f----- every authority

You beg and cry for more, and yet I’m on the floor
There are strangers takin’ pictures of me when I ask “No more”
It’s really hard for me to say just how I feel
I’m scared that I’ll get thrown away like a banana peel

Why is it so hard to see? (Why?)
If I cut myself, I would bleed (Kill me)
I’m just like you, you’re like me
Imperfect and human, are we?

Show and tell (Show and tell)
I’m on display for all you f------ to see (F------ to see)
Show and tell (Show and tell)
Harsh words if you don’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell (Buy and sell)
Like I’m a product to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you f----- every authority

Show and tell
Why can’t you f------ hear me?
Show and tell, um
Are you listening yet?

Show and tell (Show and tell, baby)
I’m on display for all you f------ to see (F------ to see)
Show and tell (Oh)
Harsh words if you don’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell
Like I’m a product to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you f----- every authority
