Melanie Martinez – Gingerbread Man lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm frosting
I don't need a man to make my life sweet
Prince charming
Just isn't the one that I think I need

You're thirsty
You think I give out all my shit for free
I'm bursting
Out laughing at idiocy

[Chorus]
I need a gingerbread man, the one I'll feed
The gingerbread man, the one I'll eat
One who's always crazy
Never calls me baby
That's the one that I want
All you boys are not him, him

[Verse 2]
Can't you see?
I only want the ones who never see me
But I'm happy
I love playing these games until my heart bleeds
It bleeds jelly
Cause you don't want someone to eat your cookie
Can someone please
Find him for me, find him for me?

[Chorus]
I need a gingerbread man, the one I'll feed
The gingerbread man, the one I'll eat
One who's always crazy
Never calls me baby
That's the one that I want
All you boys are not him, him

[Bridge]
I'm the icing covering his body
I wanna hold him so close, so tightly
Baby how do I say this politely?
Love me hard and don't be nice, please
I wanna feel your crumbs on my body
I want to break you in pieces like me
Baby don't be so scared of biting
Want to eat each other into nothing

[Chorus]
I need a gingerbread man, the one I'll feed
The gingerbread man, the one I'll eat
One who's always crazy
Never calls me baby
That's the one that I want
All you boys are not him, him
