You want a guy who can bring the bacon
And you want a guy with savoir faire
Somebody who can take control of it
Someone with cool black shiny hair

You don't want a boyfriend
What you want is Mr. Spock
To come to your wasteland
And destroy the robot
Something more than human
Someone with blood that's golden green
You want something better
Than me

Captain Kirk went to the planet
And there he fought the mad lizard
He saved the ship, invented the gun powder
But that's just not good enough for you is it . . . no

You don't want a boyfriend
What you want is Mr. Spock
To come to your wasteland
And destroy the robot
Something more than human
Someone with blood that's golden green
You want something better
Than me

You sit all night at your computer
Drinking Diet Dr. Pepper
Looking for an answer to it all
Say the words, say the words
Say, say, say the words

You don't want a boyfriend
What you want is Mr. Spock
To come to your wasteland
And destroy the robot
Something more than human
Someone with blood that's golden green
You want something better
Than me
Me
Than me

    General Commentyes, great song

    although it is "man lizard" and "cold and green"
    and i know this because i'm a Trek fan
    and now I'm waiting to be beaten up

    General CommentThis song is GREAT! At the same time being completely ridiculous (like most Nerf Herder) and cracking me up, the music really rocks, and under it all there's a neat story most can relate to - feeling like you're not good enough for someone, like you would have to be non-human Mr. Spock to be good enough. BTW, the "man lizard" episode (where Captain Kirk visits a planet and fights a human lizard thing, and has to reinvent gun powder to save the ship), is the pinnacle of Star Trek inanity. Where did they come up with that stuff - maybe the same place Nerf Herder comes up with lyrics for their songs!

    General CommentI love this song. It rocks and makes you feel like a dork at the same time. Speaking of being a dork, the episode they're talking about is 'Arena'. B)

    General CommentAlso the line 'someone with blood thats golden green' should be 'blood that's cold and green'.
