Fuck You (3:39)

Cover of NRJ Hits 13

From NRJ Hits 13 and 28 other releases

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).
