History[]

Meaning[]

Many people speculate this song is about a young girl who was groomed and manipulated by an older man. Within the song, we can see as the girl gets older, she realizes what had happened to her was terrible, yet she is still somewhat attatched to her abuser as he was her "first love". We can see this struggle throughout the song as the singer talks about how he's locked up, and how she will expose him as a predator, yet still wonders if he misses her and says she misses him. Grooming can be horribly effective seeing as how easily influenced and naïve children can be, and the speaker was, and possibly still is, affected by the "Mister"'s grooming, seeing as she believed they loved eachother.

Lyrics[]

Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, I might tell my sister
If I tell her, mister, she might tell my mother
And my mother, mister, she might tell my father
And my father, mister, he won't be too happy and he'll have his lawyer
Come up from the city and arrest you, mister
So I wouldn't miss me if you get me, mister, see?

Missed me, missed, me now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, you must think I'm pretty
If you think so, mister, you must want to fuck me
If you fuck me, mister, it must mean you love me
If you love me, mister, you would never leave me
It's as simple as can be!

Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you miss me, mister, why do you keep leaving
If you trick me, mister, I will make you suffer
And they'll get you, mister, put you in the slammer
And forget you, mister, then you'll miss me won't you, miss me
Won't you miss me?

Missed me, missed me, now you've got to kiss me
If you kiss me, mister, take responsibility
I'm fragile, mister, just like any girl would be
And so misunderstood so treat me delicately

Missed me, missed me, now you've gone and done it
Hope you're happy in the county penitentiary
It serves you right for kissing little girls
But I'll visit, if you miss me
Say you miss me
How's the food they feed you?
Do you miss me?
Will you kiss me through the window?
Do you miss me, miss me?
Will they ever let you go?
I miss my mister so
