Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Did my invitations disappear?
Why'd I put my heart on every cursive letter?
Tell me why the hell no one is here
Tell me what to do to make it all feel better
...

Pity Party

Melanie Martinez


[Verse 1]
Did my invitations disappear?
Why'd I put my heart on every cursive letter?
Tell me why the hell no one is here
Tell me what to do to make it all feel better

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe it's a cruel joke on me
Whatever, whatever
Just means there's way more cake for me
Forever, forever

[Chorus]
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames

[Verse 2]
Maybe if I knew all of them well
I wouldn't have been trapped inside this hell that holds me
Maybe if I casted out a spell
But told them decorations were in pastel ribbons

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe it's a cruel joke on me
Whatever, whatever
Just means there's way more cake for me
Forever, forever

[Chorus]
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames

[Bridge]
I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying
I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying
I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying
I'm dying, I'm dying

[Interlude]
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to

[Scream]

[Chorus]
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames

[Outro]
It's my party, it's-it's my party
It's my party, it's-it's my party
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry, cry, cry)

"Pity Party" Track Info



“Pity Party” revolves around Cry Baby getting upset because nobody came to her party, resulting in an emotional breakdown, accompanied by a brass section and an hip-hop beat.

The song is the lead single of Melanie Martinez's debut album, Cry Baby. Although it was initally released June 2, 2015, it didn't impact Top 40 radio until March 22, 2016.

Melanie talked with Digital Journal about the songwriting process:

This was during my second session with Kara DioGuardi. It was awesome to write that song because I love music from the 50s and 60s. When I was singing, Kara said my voice reminded her of Judy Garland and artists from that time. I really wanted to write about no one showing up to my birthday party and the song is perfect inspiration for this theme. I love samples, especially older songs because they can put a fresh new take on an old song.

The music video was directed by Melanie and was released on June 1st, 2015. Behind the scenes for the filming of “Pity Party,” Melanie talked from Cry Baby's point of view: “She fell in love with someone, she threw a birthday party, invited him, and nobody showed up so she's just like absolutely insane.”

The story and illustration for this song appears on the 17th page of the Cry Baby storybook, reading:

Her birthday was around the bendShe invited him and all her friendsNone of which did attendHer happiness came to an end
