A melancholy dolly with a Polly want-a syndrome

from Murs (Ft. 9th Wonder) – D.S.W.G. (Dark Skinned White Girls) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The archetypal parrot phrase is “Polly want a cracker”–“Cracker,” of course, also being mildly derogatory slang for a white person.

People believe that this girl is “trying to be white” because her actions don’t match up with what people expect from a teenage black girl; the term “Oreo” is sometimes applied to people for similar reasons.
