And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
And dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for
A boy is narrating his love for a girl and he’s referring to her parents. When parents argue, little children often bare the worst of the situation, and are often neglected. This boy was there to comfort her, and through their playfulness they found out about the many sexual uses of the male and female body.
This lyric has often also been interpreted as the children being half siblings, as the mother is referred to as Your whereas the father isn’t labelled as either that or My, leaving us to assume he is referring to his own parent.
There is evidence of domestic violence, and incest between the two children.
