Melanie Martinez: Mrs Potato Head Meaning
Mrs Potato Head Lyrics
You can buy a couple ornaments
Just be sure to read the warning, kids
Cause pretty soon you'll be bored of it
Sexual, hey girl if you wanna feel sexual
You can always call up a professional
They stick pins in you...

Mrs Potato Head is about girls finding "the perfect man" and the man not happy with the girls facial features and because he has lots of money he thinks he can pay any women to do whatever he wants and in this situation he makes the girl (who is beautiful anyway) get plastic surgery. when it is time to reveal how the surgery went he realises that he hates how she looks now and that he wasted his money and cant stay with her. she sees how she looks and realises that shes made a terrible mistake and sees the man doing the exact same thing to another beautiful girl.
moral of the story... every girl is beautiful in their own way and should never change themselves for a man, if he doesnt like the way you look then his not worth all the trouble. find someome who loves you for the way you are

It's a parody of now...look at the Kardashians, Models...media in general...all they tell us is to be stick thin, plump up your lips, smooth your skin out, get Botox, get your breasts as big as a watermelon, fill your ass up with silicone...but this song is very much amazing, and it mirrors what we see...pill diet and such

Mrs. Potato Head by Melanie Martinez symbolizes the insecurities of women who result to plastic surgery. The line "Baby soft skin turns into leather -
Don't be dramatic it's only some plastic -
No one will love you if you're unattractive" means that plastic surgery will 'fix your face', but it also takes away your natural beauty. Also, "Do you swear you'll stay forever, even if her face don't stay together" explains itself. She's asking her lover if he'll stay with her if what's supposed to make her beautiful makes her ugly. The song basically means that being fake is bad.

The part of the song that made the most sad was the part that said “It’s such a waste. Little girls grow into their mother’s face, but little girls are learning how to cut and paste, and pucker up their lips until they suffocate.” This part shows that these little girls could be growing up to be beautiful just the way they are, but today’s society is saying that they need to have surgery to completely change their body and make them look like a Barbie doll.

I believe the song's meaning is about how girls want to get/ or forced to get plastic surgery because they want to look pretty, yet the hints of how it will make them regret it in the song are everywhere.
And in the music video it is about "the perfect man" that she falled for and he pressured her into getting plastic surgery, when he saw that she did not come out as pretty as he wanted as it quotes; " Do you promise that you'll stay forever? Even if her face don't stay together?" . Obviously, he does not stay forever as we see in the end of the music video he's swaying another innocent, beautiful woman into doing the same thing.

Women get plastic surgery to look beautiful, like how you change a Mrs. Potato Head's face. It also says that kids are lucky to not care, but they probably will someday. "Just be sure to read the warning kids, 'cause pretty soon you'll be bored of it" you'll realize that it wasn't worth it to get plastic surgery. Women will also question if their man will stay with them based on how they look.

It’s about the things girls do to look pretty when they all ready are and how they can get pressured into it

I think this song is about how girls get pressed into plastic surgery and stuffing their bras, plumping the limps ex. Even though there all ready beautiful ;)

This song is about a girl who falls in love with "the perfect guy" who buys her all this pretty stuff and soon enough he gets bored of her because shes not a fucking barbie doll and makes her n appointment to get plastic surgery and get bigger boobs when she is already perfect and its heart breaking when he sees that she made a mistake because in the end he gets another pretty girl to do the same and I guess this song shows that you should not change yourself no matter what people say because there is no such thing as perfect and you should like yourself no matter what people say - a melanie martinez fan :3 uwu owo.

I think Potato Head is about the struggles young women, women even kids have with their appearances, and that society sets a standard and shows “perfect celebrities, models etc” which all had plastic surgery. And the line saying “Sexual, hey girl if you want to feel Sexual you can always call up a professional they stick pins in you like a vegetable” so i think this is about how some women don’t feel pretty or good enough for who they love and that they will get face lifts, butt lifts, breast implants for them to believe that they look beautiful, and for their partner to love them.

This is about how Crybaby is saving girls from being in a toxic relationship,being a plastic (from Mean girls),and destroying the body for men/women.details:"Baby soft skin turns into leather""no one will love you if your unattractive" SO she is saying be YOUR SELF! THERE IS NO ONE YOU MORE THAN YOU!!!!!=)

In this song it's singing about what girls do to be beautiful. How girls get plastic surgery just so they can be loved. The phrase, "Baby soft skin turns into leather" means when girls get plastic surgery and their skin hardens.
And when the song says "Oh Mr. Patato Head tell me, how did you afford her surgery, do you swear you'll stay forever, even her face don't stay together" means will the boy stay with the girl even her face gets botched?
Another thing is the song is called "Mrs. Patato Head" is cause girls get plastic surgery and and have pins stuck into them like vegetables. It said so in the song.

This song is singing about doing stuff just be pretty. Like getting plastic surgery to be beautiful. The phrase "will you swear to stay forever, even her face doesn't stay together" could mean will the boy still love the girl if she's ugly?

One of the lyrics that really hit me in this song is, “does a pretty face make it better?”. Crybaby has a really rough life, and on top of it, she starts judging herself. She wonders if being pretty will make her life better or make her happier. People who get plastic surgery are usually pressured into it. But she’s also worried it might go wrong because so many things in her life had already gone wrong. I feel like the other theories are right but I wanted to add this on top of it. Thanks for reading!

The song expresses that it's about getting plastic surgery, Melanie shows that many people feel that they aren't 'pretty', and that they get surgery due to that fact. Melanie tries to say that we're all beautiful and we shouldn't change ourselves because of what someone said.
Thanks for reading my interpretation.

The song represents the struggles of women in the past, and present. How they had to be lady-like and pretty and beautiful. Some husbands only married to pretty much flex on other men. A lot of women were pressured into plastic surgery, diet pills, wigs and many other fake pieces of plastic, and ornaments.

I know the song is about a girl who has a beautiful face but get plastic surgery and her boobs filled because the man wants her to be "beautiful", even though everyone is.Melanie explains how society pressures us to be perfect even though there is no such thing. Everyone is beautiful. It doesn't matter if you fat or skinny or in between or thicc. It doesn't matter what shape you are, you are beautiful without surgery always, and without makeup too. People will still love you, even if you believe you are unattractive, though you are still beautiful in every way, your true way.

I believe that the meaning of the song is that
People can be upset about there appearance or they could be bullyed into thinking so. The lyric "baby soft skin turned into leather" represents that you can go from a normal look to looking like a barbie doll and a barbie dolls skin is rough and hard like leather. So she is saying that you can go from looking li you to being like a plastic doll just like a barbie or a bratz doll
