The Lyrics

from the rock opera "The Pile of Bricks". The nerd who was beaten up by Dave in "Don't Tease Me Now" laments about a love from afar.
[Hey! Shut up!!! I'm trying to study!...I got a Trapper Keeper to keep my papers in!!]

I got a Trapper Keeper to keep my papers in
I got a Pocket Protector to hold my pens in
When I'm a good boy, I'm on the honor roll often

I've got Velcro keeping my shoes on
Got those Carpal Tunnel Blues
I've got 13 computers and disks to type programs on

I'm in the Chess Club
I never make a flub
I know how to spell photosynthesization

And I also know
When I try to dial through
To get a date with you
You'll say that you're not home

I've got the stereotypical greasy hair
And the obligatory thick eyeglasses
While I wear my favorite plaid shirt

I've got Chemistry stains on my fingers
I'm getting a scholarship, I'm hopin'
I've got a grand piano on which I play Chopin

I've got little beady eyes
And yet I never lie
I'd never like to

Oooh gosh, I never dial the phone
'Cause you'll say that you're not home
Would you like to go to the Prom?
I promise not to bring my Mom

What a lonely little parody! I had to drop by and visit it, even though it is too early for voting... :)

Y/Z – Hard to pace, Agri – good work – Nerd Central – and that was said after having missed your opening explanation! “Carpal Tunnel Blues” was good imagery of this poor unfortunate’s plight.

Wow! Discs back in 2004!

Your whining is more fun than Roger Waters' whining.

"I've got the stereotypical greasy hair And the obligatory thick eyeglasses While I wear my favorite plaid shirt" (Back in the 80s when you wrote this it might have spelled nerd but today it just spells Hipster). Good parody that's older than I am even alive!

(ABC) This parody is older than me too! LOL! It's funny how nerdy in the 80's=hipster today. That might be another parody idea for someone! Hmmmmmmm.....

Never heard the OS before, but this was pretty darn funny. I really like the descriptions in this song, nice work!
