The song is relatively new to me as I got the maggot maybe a year ago.  It's a great song.  I really like the title.  "See how pretty, See how smart" not sure what it means or what's being described but it fits the song perfectly in an unsettling way. 

The title makes me think of a young female overachiever who's not what she seems.  She comes across sweet and innocent but something in your gut tells you she has a hidden darkside no one knows about.  Like she has a secret place where shetortures puppies or something and has no reguard for life.  A total psychopath.

Anybody know where the title comes from?

Any female melvins fans' beauty increases 10 fold in my book, for the fact that they are a fan.

See How Pretty, See How Smart, indeed a killer tune & indeed Kevin does shine ... love the bass line in this one. They should add it into the sets again; saw them do it live a couple times on the 1999 tour (pre-mummu days). Absolutely crushing and gross!!

There is a great version on the Euclid Tavern, Cleveland, OH. 1999-07-21 DVD ... I can't up vids ... but someone should ... 'cause it probably make ya wet yourself ... its that good!   
It was a big night out on the town for the Id and the Reptile Brain . . .

Agreed....i am actually getting married to a girl i've known for 13 years and took to her first string of Melvins shows down here in NC...

From Stoner Witch. An awesome song and highlight of the entire album. At the Stake: the newest Melvins song of the week!

One of the few songs that I'd prefer to hear from the album rather than live.  The production on this song is top notch.  I've mentioned this in an earlier post but the "ooO00ooOO000ooo00O" (thanks Dump) sound adds so much to the eerie nature of the song.  It's just hard to hear it live w/o that sound.
Lyrics are cool too!

I agree. This song is much better on the album.

Ahhh, yes.... The sea-change moment of STONER WITCH. I remember tuning in for the first time and being so confused by that curve ball that had just been thrown at my face....

The first half of the album hit so hard-but the real weirdness began with that track.

So. Slow. So. Heavy.

I know what you mean but it was actually Roadbull (second half of) that gave me that feeling on my first listen!

But yes we're talking about At The Stake here and my oh my does it rule. In the top 5, upper echelon of Melvins songs to date.
