After Coraline leaves the kitchen, she see's her father 'playing' piano. He seems a little off, but he hides it because of the beldam. He plays her a song:

Making up a song about Coraline! She's a peach, She's a doll, she's a pal of mine! She's as cute as button in the eyes of anyone who laid their eyes on Coraline! When she goes around exploring, Mom and I will never ever make it boring, our eyes on Coraline!

Possible meaning of the songEdit

Some people say the other father is giving Coraline hints. This was however never confirmed.

  • "She's a peach" - The other mother will try to eat her
  • "She's a doll" - The other will try to control her
  • "She's as cute as a button" - The other mother will try to sew buttons into her eyes
  • "Our eyes will be on Coraline" - The beldam will be watching her and or sewing buttons into Coraline's eyes
  • "Mom and I will never ever make it boring" - They will make her life better than her life with her real parents
