The Lyrics

Since I mocked all the Beatle' songs several years ago, I thought I'd add them to the HUGE number that's already here. Maybe there's a few that haven't been done yet
You're a piece of work, babe
But what's wrong with you?
You are such a jerk, babe
And you know it's true
Oafish, helpless
Oafish, helpless
It seems you are completely
Eight ways a geek

I sure wish you luck, dear
One day it may come
But you're such a schmuck, dear
And sincerly dumb
Foolish, clueless
Foolish, clueless
It seems you are completely
Eight ways a geek

Eight ways a geek
I ca-a-a-a-all you
Eight ways a geek
I'm telling you because I care

If I've told you once, dear
I've said a thousand times
You are one big dunce, dear
As Webster's book defines
Oafish, helpless
Foolish, clueless
It seems you are uniquely
Eight ways a geek

I'm sad... I thought this would be a praise of geekdom, rather than its opposite. Think I'll have to write that next...

'You are one big dunce, dear'
'As Webster's book defines'

I found a slightly different definition:

Source: http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=geek

Main Entry: geek
Pronunciation: 'gEk
Function: noun
Etymology: probably from English dialect geek, geck fool, from Low German geck, from Middle Low German
Date: 1914
1 : a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake
2 : a person often of an intellectual bent who is disapproved of - geeky /'gE-kE/ adjective

Not nitpicking - song was a great read. Love this series you submitted although I do not know every Beatle song you have out here today.

Great pacing! And everything else. 'Geeks' are in. :D Lucky for some, even though they still are clumsy.

Thanks all. But what I was going for was what the "cool chicks" thought of me and any other kid with glasses in school. I'm actually proud of being and attracted to geeks.

I was going to try a "Beware of geeks bearing textbooks" misquote, but by latin's not quite up to it: "timeo technetos et dona libres" is probably all wrong (especially because the "tech-" prefix come from Greek rather than Latin...). But WTF ;-)

To Rick: Yes, it IS possible to be a geek AND cool! To Guy: What does that make Ozzy Osbourne?
Phil Alexander - October 20, 2003 - Report this comment
Ozzy? Er... neither

Oops! She wasn't supposed to see that.

Iput my Ozzy parody on now. See "Sexy Sadie"

Just thought of doing "Eight ways a geek", so I had a look - not only did you get here before me, but I notice I've been here, too... ah, well.
