Lily Allen - Fuck You

Look inside,
Look inside your tiny mind,
Now look a bit harder
Cause we're so uninspired,
So sick and tired of all the
Hatred you harbor

So you say
It's not okay to be gay
Well I think you're just evil
You're just some racist who
Can't tie my laces
Your point of view is medieval

[Chorus]
Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
And it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Do you get,
Do you get a little kick out of
Being small minded?
You want to be like your father
It's approval you're after
Well that's not how you find it

Do you,
Do you really enjoy living a
Life that's so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where
Your soul should be
Your losing control of it and
It's really distasteful

[Chorus]
Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't
Translate and it's getting
Quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you

You say,
You think we need to go to war
Well, you're already in one
Cause it's people like you
That need to get slew
No one wants your opinion

[Chorus]
Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
And it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you (repeat)

"Fuck You" (also known as the working title "Guess Who Batman") is the third single by English singer Lily Allen from her second album "It's Not Me, It's You". It's released only in some countries. The song originally appeared on her MySpace page in 2008 alongside the songs "I Could Say" and "I Don't Know" (now known as "The Fear"), the song appeared under the title "Guess Who Batman". The song's title was then changed to "Get Wit the Brogram", it was later changed to "GWB". Allen wrote that: “This song is not a direct attack at anyone, it was originally written about the BNP in the UK but then I felt this issue has become relevant pretty much everywhere, we are the youth, we can make coolness for our future, its up to us. Go green and hate hate.” However, the song might seem like a direct attack at George W. Bush and his politics. The lyrics contain common criticisms of the former American president, such as accusations of small-mindedness and warmongering. The first letters of the words in the original titles were also the same as president Bush's initials: "Guess Who Batman" and George Walker Bush. The song was later re-titled as its current name "Fuck You". The song has also been titled as "F**k You", which is the censored version of the song. The song was written by Lily Allen and Greg Kurstin. The song debuted at 37 in Canada, it has so far charted higher than "Smile" (86) but not as high as "The Fear" (33) despite not being released as an actual single. The song debut at 68 on the US Billboard Hot 100, it has so far charted higher than "The Fear" (80). The song charted at 154 in the UK, it is one of two songs on Lily's new album not to be released as a single but charted, the other one is "Everyone's at It" that charted at 117 on the UK Singles Chart. So, it states that "Fuck You" is actually more successful that most of Allen's previous singles, although it is not an actual single yet.
