"Geek In The Pink" as written by and Kevin Paul/mraz Kadish....
Well let the geek in the pink take a stab at it
If you like the way I'm thinkin' baby wink at it
I may be skinny at times but I'm fat full 'a rhymes
Pass me the mic and I'm a grab at it a
Isn't it delicious crazy way that I'm kissin'
Cause baby listen to this don't want to miss it while it's hittin'
Sometimes you gotta fit in to get in
But don't ever quit so soon I'm gonna let you win but see

I don't care what you might think about me
You can vibe without me if you want
I could be the one to take you home
Baby I could rock the night alone
If we never get down it wouldn't be a let down
But sugar don't forget what you already know
I could be the one to turn you out
We could be the talk across the town
Don't judge me by the color, confuse it for another
You might regret what you let slip away

I'm the geek in the pink pink pink
I'm the geek in the pink yeah

Well this relationship fodder don't mean to bother nobody
But cupid's automatic musta fired multiple shots at her
Because she fall in love too often that's what the matter
At least I talk about it keep a pattern of flattery and a
She was staring through the doorframe
Eyeing me down like already a bad boyfriend
Well she can get her toys outta the drawer then
Cause I ain't comin' home, I don't need that attention, see

I don't care what you might think about me
You'll get by without me if you want
I could be the one to take you home
Baby we could rock the night alone
If we never get down it shouldn't be the let down
But sugar don't forget what you already know
I could be the one to turn you out
You could be the talk across the town
Don't judge it by the color, confuse it for another
You might regret what you let slip away

I am more than you're thinking
Hey look at me go
From hero to zero
Oh take it from a geek like me
I can save you from unoriginal dumb-dums
Who wouldn't care if you com...plete him or not

So what I've got a short attention span
A coke in my hand
Because I'd rather have the afternoon, relax and understand
Mm hip hop and flip flops it don't stop with the light rock
A shot to mock you kinda puts me in the tight spot
The hype is nothing more than hoo-hah so I'm
Developing a language and I'm calling it my own
So take a peek into the speaker and you'll see what I mean
That on the other side the grass is greener

I don't care what you might think about me
You'll get by without me if you want
I could be the one to take you home
Baby we could rock the night alone
If we never get down it wouldn't be the let down
But sugar don't forget what you already know
I could be the one to turn you out
We could be the talk across the town
Don't judge it by the color, confuse it for another
You might regret what you let slip away

I'm the geek in the pink pink pink
I'm the geek in the pink yeah
I'm the geek in the pink
All y'all it's the new color for fall

    General CommentHe's telling a girl not to judge him just because he's kind of nerdy and to not judge him based on her past relationships with assholes because that's not him. She could be missing out on the best sex/relationship with him just because he's not the "typical" attractive male specimen. His lyrics are pretty straight forward here.

    General Commentthis song is about sex

    I'm the geek in the pink. (PINK = lady parts)

    Unoriginal dum-dums
    Who wouldn't care if you com...plete him or not (emphisis on com)

    it has to do a little with relationships, but its mainly saying he can satisfy

    General Commenti think this song is about interracial dating. Jason is into women of different ethnicicties in general.

    he is saying,

    I could be the one to turn you out
    We could be the talk across the town
    Dont judge me bu the color,
    Confuse for another
    you might regret what you let slip away.....

    talk of the town (refering to people staring cus of the difference in race)

    dont judge me by the color (just becasue im a nerdy white guy, doesnt mean i cant turn you out)

    General CommentAt first listen, I thought that this song was about interracial relationships. A minority cool girl, and a geeky white guy. o.O

    General CommentGeek in the Pink is wordplay - yeah, it can mean "I'm wearing a pink shirt" but it doesn't - it's the same "Pink" Aerosmith went on about at least a decade ago (vagina).

    Likewise, "It's laundry day!" could mean literally that he's doing laundry and he made everything pink. Haven't you all heard the phrase "airing your dirty laundry" though? That's what he's really saying - that he's about to spend a song talking about his issues with his girl.

    I love how Mraz plays on words and phrases and how almost every song he has includes some sort of innuendo.

    General CommentWhile this song is certainly "about" a multitude of things (laundry washing, acceptance, sexuality, etc)

    It's based on a time when he was involved in an impromptu recording session in Miami with beatmaker Scott Storch.

    "I showed up at the studio and we don't even know what we're gonna do," Mraz recalled. "Then Scott came up with this crazy loop and the room just became filled with MCs that just started flowing. And here I am, this skinny little white kid wearing this pink polo shirt, just feeling totally awkward. I probably looked like the biggest nerd in there."

    General Commenta lot different than usual

    definitely has to do with prejudice, the cheerleading thing might have something to do with it, haha..

    General CommentThis reminds me of one guy I know (male cheerleader, wears pink often.) And yet all the ladies love him.
    It's basically, hey, we could get together or we might not, I don't care either way.
    Mark my words, this is gonna be a hit single. Jason, you've done it again, my love.

    General CommentAlso, more generalized I think it's about not judging a book by it's cover because you may be missing out. Don't worry so much what others think of you, just follow your heart.
