I really don't like your point of view
I know you'll never change
You're stinging me with your attitude
I got the mind to walk away

I really don't like your arrogance
Or your policies
You're ninety-nine percent an embarrassment
With just one quality

I don't mind it when you (whistle)
Brings out the best in me when you (whistle)
Show your expertise
When the night always ends with a fight I'm excited
That you'll wind up next to me

I like it when you (whistle)
Can I have some please of that (whistle)
You satisfy my needs
Sometimes I fake that I hate you and make up
So you'll wind up next to me

I really don't like your skinny jeans
So take them off for me
And show me what you got underneath
So we can do this properly

I really don't like the way you smile
When you think you're right
But I will forgive you, the yoke is in the middle
And I'm chewing through the white

I don't mind it when you (whistle)
Brings out the best in me when you (whistle)
Show your expertise
When the night always ends with a fight I'm excited
That you'll wind up next to me

I like it when you (whistle)
Can I have some please of that (whistle)
You satisfy my needs
Sometimes I fake that I hate you and make up
So you'll wind up next to me

I dreamt that you were on a train
You were leaving, you were leaving
It made me think of what I'd miss
Can you believe it, you believe it?

I don't mind it when you (whistle)
Brings out the best in me when you (whistle)
Show your expertise
When the night always ends with a fight I'm excited
That you'll wind up next to me

I like it when you (whistle)
Can I have some please of that (whistle)
Take off your skinny jeans
Sometimes I fake that I hate you and make up
So you'll wind up next to me

I dreamed that you were on a train
You were leaving, you were leaving

Song facts

Doolittle explained "Skinny Genes" to BBC Radio's Steve Lamacq: "The single is something I made up in my head. I just thought it would be quite a funny scenario where you didn't like someone, if they were really annoying, but you had a good time under the sheets."
