"Gingerbread Man" is a single by Melanie Martinez that was released on December 23, 2015 as a Christmas present for her fans. It was later included on Cry Baby's Extra Clutter EP.

Theme

The song is about Cry Baby's Christmas. She doesn't want her lover to be some kind of Prince Charming, she just wants him to have sex with her. She doesn't like that all the boys that like her, or want to be the perfect partner, she likes the boys who never seem to notice her, so she's stuck with guys who are too scared to have sex with her.

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
What all you boys are not

[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'cha 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
What all you boys are not

[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 harder and don't be nice, please
I wanna feel your crumbs on my body
I want to break you in pieces
Fight 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
What all you boys are not
