Having set the stage, let’s delve into the specifics of ‘Sarah’ and its place in Tyler’s discography. Okay, first off – “Sarah” was on Tyler’s super controversial mixtape, Bastard. No official music video from him (yet?), but loads of fan-made ones on YouTube. Those videos get deep… think obsession, feeling totally isolated, and some serious dark vibes. Basically, they nail the whole feel of the song.
About those lyrics… “Sarah” dives into a crazy mix of infatuation and frustration. Could be a real person, could be something totally in his head. Tyler’s words paint this picture of wanting something, but it never quite being enough. Check out these opening lines:

Diving Deeper: Let’s Break Down Those “Sarah” Lyrics

Okay, “Sarah” is basically Tyler pouring out his raw, messy thoughts about this mysterious girl. Let’s dive into a couple of verses:
Verse 1:
“You got a boyfriend? I figured / He looks like a [derogatory term] probably figure you’d like something bigger”
Right off the bat, Tyler sounds super possessive, even insulting Sarah’s boyfriend. There’s this weird mix of arrogance and feeling like he’s not good enough.
Verse 2:
“And truthfully Casper you really make my day / I will probably kill myself for Zito in his Jail”
Now things get even darker. He’s battling serious self-hate and totally idealizing things. Mentioning Casper the Friendly Ghost… Is that about wanting a pure kind of love he can’t reach, or something way more innocent?
This is just a taste – those lyrics are twisted! There’s so much to unpack. Want to see the full lyrics? Check them out here:
I like my girls skinny with brains
I like my hoodies fucked with Lame
I like my friends imaginary with no names
And I make music for the fuck of it, no fame
Aim, shoot, the gun of love, round
Tried to find ammo but it’s none around town
So I went Down South but I ended up North
Uptown sitting on Cloud 9’s white porch
And of course, my car’s off course
You’re so white, my blinkers don’t work
I’m trying to let the force be with you, I get you
Music is my first, but I contemplate divorce
You make a nigga sing songs nice
You make a nigga’s night turn day
And you make the flowers sing say turn green yellow
It sucks that I didn’t get the chance to say hello
I want to eat you out like jello
And mess with your body like the bass and the cello
And tell your mom I said hello, you want to go to prom? (Nigga hell no)
Fuck (Shit) and another one, there goes another one
Another love song about shit
And I’ll be rich if I get another diss
And maybe Cupid won’t miss
I like her L-I-K-E, the only difference is she won’t fuck with me
But she will fuck with that vegetable with the hairs full of X’s and O’s
I want to tie her body up and throw her in my basement
Keep her there, so nobody can wonder where her face went
Tyler, what you doing?
Shut the fuck up!
Uh umm
You gon’ fuckin’ love me bitch
Or I’ma fuckin’ put this gun in your fuckin’ head
But all I really want is a kiss on the cheek
In private, not public in the streets
And your cupcake how we eat and your toes
Cause I got a big fetish with the feet
I just want somebody I can see
You can be a gold digger, you ain’t got to love me
I’m serious (I love you) I don’t ask for much
Your heart literally is what I do want for lunch
Now this shit is turning to a habit
I’m the burger king, I gotta have it my way
And truthfully girl you really make my day
I would probably kill myself if you told me you was gay
And I can’t even look the other way
Your aura is a magnet, my eyes a metal bag, it’s attractive
L-O-L laughing, you’re a gold Oscar and I’m just actin’
And I want your cinema hole, and have our kids play supporting role
Climbing up the pole, Jack and the Beanstalk, bitch it’s gold
And I was in loath, I would never get over you, ever, Sarah
Another love song about shit
And I’ll be rich if I get another diss
And maybe Cupid won’t miss
Half your body laying on my chest
The rest is in my stomach, that’s including your breast
And I’m a just take another guess
Now you probably wishing that you would have said yes
Am I crazy? Maybe, but fucked up is how I been lately
Shit, I don’t give a fuck, your family looking for you, wish them good luck
Bitch, you tried to play me like a dummy
Now you stuck up in my mothafucking basement all bloody
And I’m fucking your dead body, your coochie all cummy
Looking in your dead eyes, what the fuck you want from me?
What did you want from me? What did you want from me?

What’s the Deal with the Name “Sarah”?

The thing is, “Sarah” is such a normal name, right? Which makes you wonder – why did Tyler choose it? Here are a few theories:
  • The Unattainable Crush: Maybe “Sarah” stands for any unattainable crush, that feeling of desperately wanting something you can’t have.
  • Sticking It to the Norm: It could be the opposite – “Sarah” represents all the conventional stuff Tyler rejects, totally fitting his outsider image.
  • The Real Person Mystery: This is the juicy one – is “Sarah” actually based on a real person? Tyler’s never confirmed it…

Fans and Critics Go Head-to-Head:

Naturally, there are endless online debates about Tyler’s meaning. Some focus on the song’s dark emotions, others argue about whether it glamorizes bad behavior or just shows it unfiltered. It’s important to understand all those different viewpoints, right?

Production and Musical Style

“Sarah” has a super stripped-back, almost unfinished sound. That adds majorly to the raw emotion Tyler’s putting out there. Let’s break it down:
  • The Low-key Beat: It’s basically just a simple drum loop and some creepy, echoing synths. Gives off this feeling of emptiness and unease.
  • Warped Vocals: Tyler’s voice is often distorted, which just adds to that unsettling vibe and really highlights his inner turmoil.
  • No Easy Answers: The song never really resolves musically, like there’s no neat little melody to hang onto. Mirrors how obsessive and unresolved the lyrics are.

“Sarah” is still one of Tyler’s most talked-about tracks, and for good reason. Let’s break down its impact:
  • Splitting the Critics: From day one, this song was polarizing. Some hated the rawness, others were like, “Whoa, this is bold,” even if it made them squirm.
  • Respect Over Time: Lately, there’s more recognition of the complexity, even within the context of Tyler’s chaotic early days.
  • Fans Can’t Stop Theorizing: Seriously, check out the online debates! People are obsessed with figuring out “Sarah,” the symbolism… it never ends.
  • The Meme Machine: Tyler’s lyrics are so over-the-top, perfect for memes. You see them everywhere on TikTok and Twitter.
  • The Elephant in the Room: “Sarah,” and lots of early Tyler stuff, is seriously messed up – violent, misogynistic, you name it. Can’t ignore that, and it’s a big part of why people argue about art vs. responsibility.


“Sarah” is a messed-up track, but there’s something fascinating about it, right? It digs into obsession, loneliness, and some seriously toxic desires. The song is like a puzzle box – everyone has a theory about what it means, which shows Tyler’s skill even when he’s being super provocative.
Obviously, it’s not for everyone – that confrontational style is something else. But it marks an important moment in Tyler, the Creator’s career, a snapshot of his raw, no-holds-barred early stuff.
