The Lyrics

Sci-fi convention, a clown with a wand
Looking like Gandalf and acting like Bond

Inside the rooms, they were screening some Poe
I'm sitting here hoping that Shatner will show

When they open the curtains, and up on the boards
There's tubby Avengers and pimply Sith lords

Being nerds, nerds
Who preen across the stage
Nerds, nerds
Who preen across the stage

An overaged Batman, smoking cigars
Wonder-less Woman, Selina with scars

Filling my mind with an utterless scream
Comes God of Thunder aglow with zit cream

Hobbits with glasses, and Elves undivine
They're shaking their asses and trying to mime

Being nerds, nerds
Who preen across the stage
Nerds, nerds
Who preen across the stage

"Hobbits with glasses"? Nix! I was squinting. Interesting parody, good title sub!

Are you sure you're just not jealous of those at Comi Con this year? 555!!! If I were young again and in shape I would be Captain America (w/o the .45 cal). One of my old G/Fs looked a bit like a blonde version of Black Widow, but by the time I met her I no longer went to the conventions with my somewhat Geekish guy friends! I did go to Dragonfest the year before Lana Clarkson was murdered though- she WAS a Barbarian Queen!

Thanks for the comments! I haven't been to a convention since the 70s. The last one I went to was promoting the upcoming premiere of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture." I was really in my element that day.
