Weird Al – White & Nerdy

Filed under: Music — Laura Moncur @ 11:19 am

Straight Outta LynwoodWeird Al Yankovic has released another single off his new album, White and Nerdy. It’s a parody of Ridin’ by Chamillionaire. You can see the video for it here:

I love this song! It’s my new Geek theme song (the old Geek theme song was “It’s All About The Pentiums“)

Also notice the cameos in the video. There’s Seth Green, Donny Osmond and Judy Tenuta. I love all the inside jokes like the fired-up Pacman in the background and the Live Long and Prosper signs he throws with his hands.

You can see all the lyrics here:

They see me mowing my front lawn.
I know they’re all thinkin’ I’m so white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Can’t you see I’m white and nerdy.
Look at me I’m white and nerdy.

I wanna roll with the gangstas,
But so far they all just think I’m too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
I’m just too white and nerdy.
Really white and nerdy.

First in my class here at MIT.
Got skillz. I’m a champion at D&D.
MC Escher, that’s my favorite M.C.
Keep your 40, I’ll just have an Earl Grey tea.

My rims never spin to the contrary.
You’ll find that they’re quite stationary.
All of my action figures are cherry.
Steven Hawking’s in my library.

My MySpace page is all totally pimped out.
Got people beggin’ for my top eight spaces.
Yo, I know Pi to a thousand places.
Ain’t got no grillz, but I still wear braces.

I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise.
I’m a whiz at Minesweeper, I could play for days.
Once you see my sweet moves, you’re going to stay amazed.
My fingers movin’ so fast it’s like the place is ablaze.

There’s no killer app I haven’t run.
At Pascal, well I’m number one.
Do Vector Calculus just for fun.
I ain’t got a Gat, but I got a soldering gun.

Happy Days is favorite theme song.
I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong.
I’ll ace any trivia quiz you bring on.
I’m fluent in Javascript as well as Klingon.

They see me roll on my Segway.
I know in my heart they think I’m white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Can’t you see I’m white and nerdy.
Look at me I’m white and nerdy.

I’d like to roll with the gangstas,
Although it’s apparent I’m too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
I’m just too white and nerdy.
How’d I get so white and nerdy?

I’ve been browsin’ and inspectin’
X-Men comics, you know I collect ‘em.
The pens in my pocket, I must protect ‘em.
My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored.

Shoppin’ online for deals for survivable media.
I edit Wikipedia.
I memorized Holy Grail really well.
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL.

I got a business doing websites.
When my friends need some code, who do they call?
I do HTML for ‘em all.
Even made a homepage for my dog.

Yo, I got myself a fanny pack.
They were havin’ a sale down at the Gap.
Spend my nights with a roll of bubble-wrap.
Pop! Pop!
Hope no one sees me get freaky.

I’m nerdy in the extreme and whiter than sour cream.
I was in A/V Club and Glee Club and even the Chess Team.

Only question that I ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk or do I like Picard?
Spend every weekend at the Rennaissance Faire.
Got my name on my underwear.

They see me strollin’. They’re laughin’
And rollin’ their eyes ’cause I’m so white and nerdy.
Just because I’m white and nerdy.
Just because I’m white and nerdy.
All because I’m white and nerdy.
Holy cow, I’m white and nerdy.

I wanna bowl with the gangstas
But oh well, it’s obvious I’m white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
Think I’m just too white and nerdy.
I’m just too white and nerdy.
Look at me I’m white and nerdy.

I need to memorize this song now because I’m even whiter and nerdier than Weird Al. He’s just joking about that HTML stuff. I really live it.

I guess I’ll never get to roll with the gangstas. I’ll just have to roll with the geeks.
