Baby ballerina’s hiding somewhere in the corner

Where the shadow wraps around her

And our torches cannot find her

She will stay there ’til the morning

Crawl behind us as we are yawning

And she will leave our games to never be the same

So Grow Tall Sugar Cane

Eat that Soil, Drink the Rain

But know that they’ll chase you if you play their little games

So run, run fast Sugar Cane

You see my peep show booth is handy

There’s a one way only mirror

So I can dance here with my hair down

But i don’t see if you get bitter

and there’s a button right beside me

if i happen to want a wall to hide me

If only the ballerina had one too

So Grow Tall Sugar Cane.

Eat that Soil, Drink the Rain

But know that they’ll chase you if you play their little games

So run, run fast Sugar Cane

And she said always, be afraid

Yeah you should always, be afraid

To Grow Tall Sugar Cane

Eat the Soil, Drink the Rain

But know that they’ll chase you if you play their little games

So run, run fast Sugar Cane

You’d better run, run fast Sugar Cane

You’d better run, run fast Sugar Cane

Missy Higgins在這首歌中談論了成名帶來的公眾注目,讓她勢必面對諸多議論、被挖掘隱私,她用甘蔗筆直向上升高的成長意象,來隱喻澳紐的一種流行語

“Tall Poppy Syndrome”(高大罌粟花綜合癥):過高的罌粟花會被砍掉。簡單來說,這是澳紐特殊的文化,講求普遍主義、齊頭式平等,也就是當有人在群體中表現亮眼,過於優秀時,會遭到其他人的批評及負面觀感。換句話說,他們也比較愿意扶助弱勢,這和美國文化差異甚大,算是有好有壞吧。

所以說這段

So Grow Tall Sugar Cane.

Eat that Soil, Drink the Rain.

But know they’ll chase you if you play their little games.

So run, run fast Sugar Cane.

yeah you’d better run, run fast Sugar Cane.

And she said, “always, be afraid”.

Yeah you should, “always, be afraid”.

道出的她深知自己出名要付出的代價,也知道隨時警惕,

she should always be afraid

Baby ballerina在peep show booth里跳舞,就是Missy Higgins指她自己在大眾面前的表演,peep show booth是指那種投硬幣進去,透過玻璃孔就可以窺視里面的舞者表演的亭子(或是放映 pornographic film),觀者看得到摸不到,表演者在里面也看不對是誰在窺視她。Missy Higgi運用peep show隱喻她在舞臺上的表演,但她也可選擇隱匿起來,不讓任何人看到,拒絕媒體的跟隨。就向她第一張專輯成功后,她選擇拋卻名利,遠離鎂光燈,花了六個月去遠行。

還有人說,她提到的被監視感,與她身為雙性戀者的處境也有關系。

這是充滿反諷與自覺的歌詞…。
