shallow end of the gene pool lyrics – austin lounge lizards

(emily kaitz)
my daddy was a man of letters
my mama was a head of the state
but when they got their chromosomes together
they gave me all of their recessive traits
i’m an embarr*ssment to evolution
my disposition is unstable and cruel
my blood’s a catastrophic blend
’cause i’m from the shallow end of the gene pool

my iq is a negative number
i’ve got a sense of humor no one can stand
my development was seriously enc*mbered
by playing music with the lounge lizards band
i’m a social director’s nightmare
at dinner parties i just babble and drool
it’s not easy making friends
when you’re from the shallow end of the gene pool

chorus:
i’m from the shallow end of the gene pool
my x-rays make the doctors laugh
when they tried to chart my eeg waves
well i wasn’t even on the graph

biological research is booming
they’re making breakthroughs like you wouldn’t believe
they say genetic engineering in humans
will someday soon be a reality
i’m gonna get me a dna transplant
they’re gonna rearrange my molecules
some natural laws will have to bend
to get me from the shallow end of the gene pool
