    1. Mike Skinner is not a cockney. He originates from Birmingham.

    2. The lyrics are "I think you are really fit".

    3. "I think you are really fit" is in no way cockney. It is general English slang, used throughout the country,

    4. Fit = buff/good looking/attractive.

    My work here is done.

    I love that first album by the Streets. Either his looping skills are crap or he is a rhythmic genius, but it totally works. It's so unnerving the way a lot of the loops are just a bit short, it keeps me really glued to it and actively listening. Plus, his language skills are really impressive. In a way, I feel like he set the stage for Sleaford Mods.
