Shopping for Genes

(unreleased song, 1985)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

No sex
Here's my check
Make me fertile
I.Q.
Too high
Blondes are in style
All I need is a donor
uh-huh, oh-ooh
Chromosomes are on loan here
uh-huh, oh-ooh

Chorus:

You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me

An echo of our love
How could you leave me
Shopping for genes
Alone for echo
Shopping for genes
Alone for echo
You could've made it with me

Verse 2:

No sex
No need to guess
I made my order

To get the best
You put your faith
in the computer

You're not allowed
just one donor
uh-huh, oh-ooh
but the bank has run over
oh, no, no

Chorus:

You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me
You could've made it with me

An echo of our love
How could you leave me
Shopping for genes
Alone for echo
Shopping for genes
Alone for echo
You could've made it with me
