I'M ENVIOUS OF YOUR I.Q. OF 37

YOU, YOU'RE THE ONE

IT'S WRITTEN ALL OVER YOUR FACE

YOU, YOU'RE THE ONE

I'D LIKE TO TAKE YOUR PLACE.

I'M ENVIOUS OF YOUR I.Q. OF 37

YOUR LACK OF BRAINS JUST DRIVES ME CRAZY

ITS THE ONLY WAY TO GET BY AND BE LAZY

YOU, YOU'RE THE ONE

IT'S WRITTEN ALL OVER YOUR FACE

YOU, YOU'RE SO DUMB

I'D LIKE TO TAKE YOUR PLACE.

I'M ENVIOUS OF YOUR I.Q. OF 37

FROM WHERE I COME IT'S THE DUMBER THE BETTER

NO-ONE LIKES A REALLY GO GETTER

    General CommentThis is a basic Devo mission statement - de-evolution means that the dumber you are, the more you fit in.

    General CommentDEVO is from a unionized industrial town. Akron, Ohio, auto industry, tires. Artists in an industrial town. It is easy to be jealous of union or corporate automatons making high union wages, for lowest common demoninator work. where a band not playing pro-smalltown springstein covers are shunned. It is easy to be stupid the burden of intellegence is a burden.

    Song MeaningBooji Boy's Basement did an interview with Bob1, who said, verbatim: "'37' is tongue in cheek angst about thinking that if I was dumb I wouldn't feel bad about the horrible atrocities of life."

    It seems that Bob1, as a songwriter, isn't as subversive or into interwoven messages as his brother or Jerry Casale.
