Melanie Martinez – The Bakery lyrics
[Intro]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la

[Verse 1]
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
With a bow tie, ribbon, stop it
Eatin' all the rainbow cookies
Pies are flying through the roof
Not my first pick but I'll do it
Make the cash right so I can move quick
Out this shithole with a new whip
Cream on top and I'd approve it

[Refrain]
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
(Pack it, box it, flip it, top it)
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
(Pack it, box it, flip it, top it)

[Verse 2]
My boss is mother Mary
Catch me slippin' through the concrete
Show no mercy, step right on me
Stiletto death, send me to purgatory

[Chorus]
The bakery, tryna make some more
They expect me to stay when I should go
Grab the bag for when they cross the door
It ain't for me to roll it out
It's just for me to raise the dough

[Verse 3]
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
With a bow tie, ribbon, stop it
Eatin' all the rainbow cookies
Pies are flying through the roof
All the cherry, the way they all go
Knock 'em down like she a dodgeball
Little mess up and she's angry
One downfall, she blamed the whole team

[Refrain]
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
(Pack it, box it, flip it, top it)
Pack it, box it, flip it, top it
(Pack it, box it, flip it, top it)

[Chorus]
The bakery, tryna make some more
They expect me to stay when I should go
Grab the bag for when they cross the door
It ain't for me to roll it out
It's just for me to raise the dough
The bakery, tryna make some more
They expect me to stay when I should go
Grab the bag for when they cross the door
It ain't for me to roll it out
It's just for me to raise the-

[Outro]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la

    I think that this song is about Melanie working at a bakery to make cash but she is struggling to make enough from it. The boss wants her to stay and probably offers her a pay rise to stay. When she says “ it’s just for me to raise the dough” I think that’s her saying ‘It’s just me earning money, it’s not my permanent job’.
