“Show & Tell” Abbey Glover Lyrics

(originally by Melanie Martinez)

You pull me by my hair so I don’t go nowhere
Tell me you love me, but you treat me like I’m never there
You say the cruelest words, you used to break my heart
‘Cause I’m over here working my ass off

Why is it so hard to see?
If I cut myself, I would bleed
I’m just like you, you’re like me
Imperfect and human are we

Show and tell
I’m on display for all you fuckers to see
Show, you tell
Harsh words if you can’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell
Like I’m a profit to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you’ve fucked every authority

You beg and cry for more, and yet I’m on the floor
There are people takin’ pictures of me when I ask “No more”
It’s really hard for me to say just how I feel
I’m scared that I’ll get thrown away like a banana peel

Why is it so hard to see?
If I cut myself, I would bleed
I’m just like you, you’re like me
Imperfect and human are we

Show and tell
I’m on display for all you fuckers to see
Show, you tell
Harsh words if you can’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell
Like I’m a profit to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you’ve fucked every authority

Show and tell
Why aren’t you fucking listening?
Show and tell
Are you listening yet?

Show and tell
I’m on display for all you fuckers to see
Show, you tell
Harsh words if you can’t get a pic with me
Buy and sell
Like I’m a profit to society
Art don’t sell
Unless you’ve fucked every authority
