My Daddy was a man of letters
My Mama was a head of state 
And when they got their chromosomes together 
They gave me all of their recessive traits 
I'm an embarrassment 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
And my development was seriously encumbered
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

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
