The Lyrics

Helsinki University of Technology (HUT) is the primordial nerd farm in Finland. Coincidentally, it is also my alma mater.
(Ten guys for every gal!)

We have a '90 Dodge Ram Van and we call it the Sheepy
(Nerd City, here we come)
We pack it up with kinds of stuff most people find creepy
(Nerd City, here we come)
Like laptops and electronics and telescope
- now gimme Red Bull and we will hit the road!

And we're goin' to Nerd City, 'cause it's there the Con
You know we're goin' to Nerd City, looking like Klingon
Ya, we're goin' to Nerd City, 'cause it's there the Con
You know we're goin' to Surf City, demos to be done, now
Ten guys for every gal!

You see they never miss the social life 'cause there's always weird things goin'
(Nerd City, here we come)
You know they're either gaming D&D or Linux might be coding -
(Nerd City, here we come)
Well, with playing Middle Ages in the SCA
or watching Star Trek re-runs both the night and day!

Ya, we're goin' to Nerd City, 'cause it's there the Con
You know we're goin' to Nerd City, microscope is fun
Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's there the Con
Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, some guys weigh a ton -
Ten guys for every gal!

And in the evening we will party in the rhythm of techno -
(Nerd City, here we come)
I'll be drinking some more Red Bull, have a caffeine go-go
(Nerd City, here we come)
And when I get to Nerd City I'll go rocking guitar -
And speaking 'bout the galaxies both near and far

And we're goin' to Nerd City, 'cause it's there the Con
You know we're goin' to Nerd City, Doctor Who is on
Ya, we're goin' to Nerd City, 'cause it's there the Con
Ya, we're goin' to Nerd City, gonna have some fun, now
Ten guys for every -
Ten guys for every gal!

Great job, but I'm afraid you've succinctly described waaay too many of my friends!

Let's say life for a geek isn't that bad if you are girl and past high school, or if you are boy and over 25. Helsinki University of Technology was a good place to study - and to have a student life.

Espoo (neighbouring town of Helsinki), where HUT is located, is the de facto Nerd City in Finland. The three largest conventions, Finncon (science fiction), Assembly (hackers) and Ropecon (gaming) draw thousands of geeks each year. One of the best aspects of geeks is that they are seldom drunk or stoned; they are more into caffeine and other similar chemicals. Red Bull and other energy drinks are the fundamental geek beverages.
