"Melanie" is a stalker's twisted love song to his neighbor Melanie. He falls in love with a girl he sees through his telescope and then becomes so obsessed with her that he goes through her garbage to learn more about her and tries to impress her by tattooing her name on his forehead. Once again, Al’s slightly morbid sense of humor comes shining through in the end, with the lovesick sap singing, “You wouldn’t listen when I promised to be true / I couldn’t stand it, so I jumped out from the sixteenth story window / Right above you.” The punchline…? “Now I may be dead, but I still love you.”
It's one of Al's few songs that might be rated PG-13 if it were a movie. Al added in an interview; "Sometimes I have an alternate verse to a song that I only sing to my friends".
