New Jeans, Cookie: the English lyrics and the meaning

Posted by

New Jeans is definitely the next big thing in modern k-pop: a girl group that debuted in July 2022, with several singles that caught the world’s interest (we analyzed Attention, their most popular one, in this article) and a self-titled EP out on August 1. The single accompanying the EP release is Cookie, a fancy pop song with electronic music add-ons and some sweet, slightly provocative lyrics. In this article, we will analyze the song and its meaning.

Cookie: inside the lyrics and their meaning

With Cookie, New Jeans’ girls try to seduce the boy they like. The way they try to attract him is not explicit; they don’t try to be sexy and provocative like many other pop singers of today (we noticed that also in the lyrics of Attention). They are good girls; in this case, they show it by baking a special sweet treat for him, inviting him to come and try it.

Made a little cookie
Baked it just for you, this treat
But you know that it ain’t for free

They dedicated their best efforts to baking a unique cookie, and they are offering it to him. But they warn him: you’ll get addicted because you can’t find such a sweet thing anywhere else. And we want you to enjoy your cookie and crave more.

With chocolate chips you know
I wanna sprinkle all over
And ruin your appetite
Yeah, I’m hiding but
I really wanna see your face

Their seduction is soft and gentle: they offer the cookie, let him eat it, and watch him out of his vision. They love to see his face; they love to see his heart melting away, falling for them. And when that happens, he won’t desire anything else: no dinner or water, the boy will only be hungry for them. Or better, for their cookie. That’s what the chorus means.

No dinner, dinner, you are hungry though
No water, water, you are thirsty though
Sweet sugar, my my, dessert, my my
That’s how you like it, ain’t that right?

The second part of the song’s lyrics continue in this direction: the girls do their best to seduce the boy, and the cookie will work. They know the boy will fall in love entirely, and he won’t wish for anything else that their taste. Food has always been a potent seduction weapon and often represents a symbol of physical attraction: in this song, New Jeans play with this image until the very end.

Made a little cookie
Come and take a lookie
Baked at my place only, come get some
I’ll bake it for you daily
But don’t try to blame me
Cavity’s your problem

The price to pay for their seduction is the cavity because eating all those cookies, all that sugar, will probably give him caries. It’s part of the consequences of getting addicted to them: he will love the taste of their treats and wish to have them every day, but he won’t be free of this desire any longer. That’s the poison mentioned in the middle of the song.

That’s, after all, the real meaning of the lyrics inside Cookie: come and get the sweetest thing you ever tried. You will love it; you will fall in love with us. And you will be mine.
