The Lyrics

Courtney’s dressed like Mr. T shaved her head
For the convention, Those gold chains aren’t light
Nah, nah, nah, nah
Looking quite strange
Cause she’s way too into Cosplay
Cosplay-ay-ay-ay-ay

Hey look! Here comes Melanie as Judge Dredd
That helmet she touts though she’s lost her sight
Nah, nah, nah, nah
Looking quite strange
Cause she’s way too into Cosplay
Cosplay

Conventions reek of nerdy sweat
But to us it’s a place of Zen
You’ll see Batman and Jokers
Undead Nazi Soldiers
Once inside you’ll be in a trance

For months we worked on costumes
To come here and meet Adam West
Never go outside or even talk to girls
But at the con we’re the manliest men!

That nerd’s dressed like a Ghostbuster
That nerd’s Han Solo in drag
That nerd is made up like a Munster
Made outfits out of twine for days!!!
Hey!!!

Dressed up like Ron Weasley here comes Ned
That ginger no doubt’s going to pick up chicks
Nah, nah, nah, nah
There are honeys
Who are also into Cosplay
Cosplay

Bradley’s one of the twenty Boba Fetts
With gut hanging out but he still don’t mind
Nah, nah, nah, nah
He’s overweight
But he still gets down with Cosplay
Cosplay-ay-ay-ay-ay

Into Sci-Fi and Comic Books
We show up to say what’s on our minds
“Can you make a clone?”
“Is there Star Trek porn?”
“How can you travel throughout time?”

Dressing up like Dr. Who
I built a TARDIS just in my spare time
I will fry your minds it has all the tools
My parents think I should get a life!!!

That nerd wears a cape but not super
That nerd’s dressed up like he’s Blade
That nerd’s decked out like a Storm Trooper
They know they’re never gonna go get laid
Hey!!!

Wardrobe from “Tron: Legacy” dressed like Flynn
With a Data Disc watch it as it flies
Nah, nah, nah, nah
He’ll form “The Games”
Cause he’s way too into Cosplay
Cosplay

Lindsay’s made up like the Living Dead
Watch as fake blood spouts way too real-life
Nah, nah, nah, nah
She moans for brains
Cause she’s way too into Cosplay
Cosplay-ay-ay-ay-ay

Even though he is seventy
This Aquaman rolls up on the scene
He wants comic books that star Wolverine
You’re never too old for dorky things!

Some cotton, some velvety
We all will dress up for Halloween
Perhaps a movie’s opening
So don’t be afraid to join us geeks!!!

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Movie prop I’m swinging

Hah, hah, hah, hah, hah, hah, hah
Hah, hah, hah, hah, hah, hah
In moon boots I’m springing

Timmy’s dressed up like Fozzie the Muppet
Telling corny jokes from his costumed snout
“Waka Waka”
He’s a furry!
And he’s way too into Cosplay
Cosplay-ay-ay-ay

Fatties wearing Sailor Moon tight outfits
Now my eyes I’ll gouge, This is the downside
Nah, nah, nah, nah
I need to gag
Cause they're way too into Cosplay
Cosplay-ay-ay-ay-ay!!!

Brings back fun convention memories. Although I don't think I ever saw anyone dressed as Aquaman!

SOTM...for some reason this OS still makes me smile every time I hear it...and this parody provided me with a perfect visual image of a major nerd fest...where I would TOTALLY fit in. ; )

(SOTM) I don't know what's sadder: the fact that I got all the references, or the fact I knew eenough to know that saying that you're dressing up as Dr. Who would get any Whovian into a right tizzy (he's never called that on the show, he's just "the Doctor"). There were a lot of pacing stumbles, which surprised me coming from a parody pro like you and given the fairly simple OS. Still pretty good, but not as good as it could've been. 454

Not sure what version of the song you were listen to T-Cop but this paced perfectly fine when I listened to the OS and compared it to the parody. But if you say so...

(SOTM) I myself thought this was Super Funny get it? ;).... super heroes.... whatever :( Anyway, I actually had a little trouble following the pacing as well in certain places. Which was weird, cuz the syllables match right, but for some reason I couldn't get a few lines to scan correctly. That's my fault though, not yours. Still enjoyed it very much.

I'm kinda nerdy, but nowhere near this extreme. I got most of the references as well, loved the idea of a 6 foot tall Fozzy Bear walking around. Nice job!

If you ever get to go to one of these conventions...well, there's a lot of truth to this song :)
