Lyrics

[Verse 1: Melanie Martinez]

Over my shoulder, eyes peeking in

Analyze my every move, what current state I'm in

'Cause you are colder than ice on my skin

Wanna get that A+, baby, so you take my ****

'Cause I am little, right? I won't call you out

Teacher's saying "you'd get credit, why would you stop now?"

You are so desperate, craving that spotlight

Shining on the ones who do this ****, 'cause it's their life

[Pre-Chorus: Melanie Martinez]

But I know the people around you say

"Just do what it takes to make it all the way"

[Chorus: Melanie Martinez]

You're a copy cat

You take it, then you leave it, honey

Just like that, just like that

You're falling flat

You'll find someone like me to bring you up right back

Up right back

(Copy cat, copy cat)

[Verse 2: Melanie Martinez]

Obsessed with power

You want it for yourself

Feeding up misogyny

But still you call yourself a feminista

If that were really true

You wouldn't feel as if I were a current threat to you

[Pre-Chorus: Melanie Martinez]

But I know the people around you say

"Just do what it takes to make it all the way"

[Chorus: Melanie Martinez]

You're a copy cat

You take it, then you leave it, honey

Just like that, just like that

You're falling flat

You'll find someone like me to bring you up right back

Up right back

(Copy cat, copy cat)

[Bridge: Melanie Martinez]

Find someone else to leech on, lady

My blood's for me, not for you, baby

College estate and all your savings

My blood's for me, so no more taking

[Verse 3: Tierra Whack]

Anything you can do, I can do better

In prison for stealing, gon' write you a letter

Courageous and clever, creative director

I raised the bar high, yes sir, I broke the record

I'm hot as peppers, my words written in leather

Scuffed up my boots, boy, I'll stomp you in Skechers

They wanna build like their first name is Hector

Back against wall, *****, I am a projector

From the projects, don't check on my ex

Think you're the boss then I'll break broken necks

Wish you the best, won't show you my next move

So I guess you'll be upset

Don't cry, no baby, you'll find your own way

Think for yourself, it'll all be okay

Copyright lyrics, you can't steal my spirit

They live for my music, they're dying to hear it

Imitated, never duplicated

You wish you related, you wish you'd have made it

Imitated, never duplicated

You wish you related, you wish you'd have made it

[Chorus: Melanie Martinez]

You're a copy cat

You take it and you leave it, honey

Just like that, just like that

You're falling flat

You'll find someone like me to bring you up right back

Up right back

(Copy cat, copy cat)
