"King and Queen" is the second song by Melanie Martinez for her second studio album, Fairytale Dreams.

Theme

This song is about Sophia's parents (Cry Baby and an unknown man) breaking up after having gotten engaged. This is because of Sophia's father not caring about her and making Cry Baby very upset.

Lyrics

Italics= DFG

Bold= Both

I thought that things

Were going so well

You gave me a ring 

And then put me through hell

Built us a castle

With a ruby coated throne

Mommy made me feel like a princess

Daddy said leave me alone

It's a shame that the beautiful shit

Had to fade away

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

It's a shame that the painful shit

Was here to stay

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

The king and queen

Part separate ways

I thought that things

Were going so well

But the plastic crowns we made

They had to melt

All the other girls with their

Tiaras and tutus

They don't have to live in a house

That's broken in two


It's a shame that the beautiful shit

Had to fade away

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

It's a shame that the painful shit

Was here to stay

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

The king and queen

Part separate ways

I thought that things

Were going so well

It's a shame that the beautiful shit

Had to fade away

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

It's a shame that the painful shit

Was here to stay

But this is when the king and queen

Part separate ways

The king and queen

Part separate ways



Music Video

The music video is set in Cry Baby's house and alternates between scenes where Cry Baby loves and cares for Sophia and scenes where her father ignores her despite her desperate cries. In the end, Cry Baby screams at her fiancé and kicks him out of the house.  

Trivia

  • Veteran crybabies loved this song and Does a Boy Love You due to the songs being callbacks to Melanie's acoustic era.
