The Lyrics

Standing in the rain with his head hung low
Holding nothing, outside the show
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Prepared his hands to imitate the scream

He played air guitar, just blew him away
He got addicted, played air guitar every day
While listening to his favorite songs
He did the motions, he played along
Playing air guitar felt good to him
Felt he was rockin' just by movin'
Yeah, air guitar, it's his new craze
His friends have given up on him, wish for old days

So he started playing, ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on playing, never gonna make it to the top

'Cause he's a joke, a zero, what a weird guy
He's a joke, a zero
He played air guitar (joke a zero- what a weird guy)
Joke, a zero (what a weird guy), he feels alive tonight

In a town without a name, he starts to play
You can see him wailin' out by the bay
People now think he's lost his mind
The town needs no name while they got his kind

But he needs to keep playing, he just can't stop
Every time he hears a guitar, his fingers just pop
Cause he's a joke, a zero (what a weird guy)
He's a joke, a zero (what a weird guy)
Yeah a joke, a zero (what a weird guy)
Plays air guitar (what a weird guy), he feels alive, feels alive tonight

Yeah he keeps playing, he just can't stop
Keeps playing air guitar, that boy has lost his top
'Cause he's a joke, a zero (what a weird guy)
He's a joke, a zero (what a weird guy)
He plays air guitar (joke, a zero) what a weird guy

Now he's just a joke, a zero
Joke, a zero, joke, a zero, what a weird guy
What a weird guy
