Don’t Cry Tomato, Baby!

I was just listening to Metallica’s cover of the song “Die, Die My Darling.” I was thinking it was kind of catchy, same as I do every time I hear it, but I was again puzzled by this line: “Don’t cry tomato, Baby.” What does it mean? Is “tomato” code for something?

Then I really thought about it. Duh.

“Don’t cry to me, Oh Baby.”

Duh.

Well, I’m going to hold on to that one. The next time someone starts whining, you know what I’m going to say? Don’t cry tomato, baby! Let ’em puzzle that out.
