Lyrics

Chillin' with a hair tie, No makeup, with some sweatpants on You know I can always be that guy You can think about me all night long

But I think you need something to think of me Something that will keep you warm And show you we can be more than just this So, baby, if you are not ready for my kiss

Then you can wear my sweatshirt And you can tell your friends We'll be together till the end Girl, you can wear my sweatshirt 'Cause you're the only one I hold And I don't want you to be cold So, baby, wear my...

When you go to sleep at night, When you wake up in the morning And when you walk the halls See, girl, you know you wanna flaunt it

Said this may be the start of something new Girl, I'm gonna tell you exactly what I wanna do... ...Is more than just this So, baby, if you are not ready for my kiss

Then you can wear my sweatshirt And you can tell your friends We'll be together till the end Girl, you can wear my sweatshirt 'Cause you're the only one I hold And I don't want you to be cold So, baby, wear my

And you can wear my sweatshirt And I don't want you to be cold So you can wear my...

So you can wear my sweatshirt And you can tell your friends We'll be together till the end Girl, you can wear my sweatshirt 'Cause you're the only one I hold And I don't want you to be cold So, baby, wear my

...Sweatshirt 'Cause you're the only one I hold And I don't want you to be cold So, baby, wear my...

Why It Sucks

  1. There is just too much Auto-Tune on this kid's vocals.
  2. Jacob's vocals sound very whiny as he holds onto the notes which is very aggravating.
  3. The lyrics are actually quite bizarre, it's basically about a kid who gives his crush his sweatshirt and confesses his love to her and hopes that she feels the same and they both kiss, then the next day he hopes that she wears and flaunts the sweatshirt she's wearing to everyone around her and tells her friends that she and the kid "will be together till the end," which is such a corny and sappy plot that actually comes out as kind of laughable.
  4. The final four verses are at least part of the chorus.
  5. The instrumental is just typical acoustic pop with an ear piercing electronic synth during the chorus, that sounds more like a high pitched power drill.
  6. The music video is just weird, with Sartorius minimally dancing at a school classroom and hallway, when his sweatshirt becomes sentient and disrupts both his class and his transitional period when he tries to meet a girl.
  7. His flows are terrible and simple.
  8. His lyrics are also simple.

Reception

"Sweatshirt" received very harsh and negative reviews from both the audience and critics mainly due to Sartorius' singing skills
