The Lyrics

So I've been messing around on www.okcupid.com a bit recently, when I get bored. It's a fun site. I wasn't expecting anything out of it except temporary relief from boredom, but I actually got *whoo*d a couple weeks ago, from a girl who turned out to be basically what I was describing in (note: spam) my earlier parody "Ubergeek," and we have hit it off (in a purely platonic sense, mind) since then. Then, less than a week later we started talking about the internet in my required English-type core class, and between the two of those things, this song just randomly popped into my head. Note, especially to previously-mentioned girl if she happens to be checking out my website and comes upon this, that *all* I took from actual life was the broadest of ideas. I am *not* actually an obsessive loser-type, I promise ;-).
We've never met
She's some kind of internet stranger
I play a dwarvish rogue,
She plays an elvish ranger.
If you're smart then I'll love you so,
So much more than the girls I know
In real life.
I'll find romance with an internet stranger

I looked up your profile
And my world came tumbling down
Every geekish male's prize
That's why I'm posting this song
To AIM is to love you

You're nobody I know
You set my heart aglow
I'll message you and be right with you
Won't go out for no beer,
We'll play Starcraft all night

Dah - dah - dah - de dah - de - dah - de dah dah dah - dah - dum
Internet stranger
Dah - dah - dah - de dah - de - dah - de dah dah dah - dah - dum
Internet stranger

Yeah, she might be a guy but hey,
Then we'll be best friends anyway,
Haven't you heard,
I'll take my chance with this internet stranger

I grokked your int'rest page
My heart was dancing all over the place
There's just one thing I'd change in you -
Wish we could meet in real life too!
To AIM is to love you

You're nobody I know
You set my heart aglow

I read your list of books
And I knew that fate had us down
Apple of my quasi-eye
It seems like ages since you said "woo!"
To AIM you is to love you

We'll play lots of net games
Wish I knew your real name
My last bit of "cool" died
Who cares, I've got no pride

Dah - dah - dah - de dah - de - dah - de dah dah dah - dah - dum
Internet stranger
Dah - dah - dah - de dah - de - dah - de dah dah dah - dah - dum
Internet stranger

Aww, how cute. neminem, I hope your new love hasn't had menimen ;) The opening of the parody was funny, and I haven't seen this concept done before. 5-5-4

Did you not miss the "in a purely platonic sense"? Thanks for the comment... "cute"... right. Wait. 5/5/4? How exactly does that work? Oh yeah, and thanks Agrimorfee, Johnny and especially Adagio.

I hope the non-Heinlein fans understand what "grokked" is. More warm than funny .

Ah, here it is. I forgot who wrote this parody as it was always in the back of my mind writing 'Hitting on EmiLoca', a sort of inspiration. I can 5-5-4 if I feel that the overall product isn't worthy of a 5 even if it is funny and has good pacing. I do believe that is why we are able to click whatever score we find fit.

Very very good, Nem. And as Pip noted, quite an improvement over the original.

Oh no - YOU'RE the "dwarvish rogue" I've been staying up all night playing Starcraft with? Jeez. I only "whoo"d you because I thought you were a girl PRETENDING to be a guy. Oh, I'm so embarrassed.

Good song. I'd put more but it's like 1:30 in the morning.

Couldn't find the original, but this reads through pretty well anyway. Cute premise, well executed. :-)

Nem, excellent idea for the song (and the song was good as well). One of the top in the "F"s
