Let's swap genes

Let's swap genes, let's try another pair,
   To make me look more shapely,
      To make the others stare!

Let's swap genes, let's try another pair,
   Add blue coloured chromosomes
      To give the legs a flair!

Let's swap genes, let's try another pair,
   Washed out denim DNA,
       With a chromatid tear.

Let's swap genes, let's try another pair,
   Coiled around they just don't fit
      So what else can I wear?

Let's swap genes, let's try another pair,
   Please don't make my bum look big
      How do these genes compare?

Let's not swap genes, I've found a pair,
      That fit me like a glove
   Blueprint cells... mine to share!
