Nerd girl, I don't deserve you
I don't get the references you refer to
I love your Lipsmackers and your lack of perfume
I hope to get you home by curfew
WORD UP!

There's a special kind of girl that goes to my shows
And I don't mean the groupie hos
All along the front row
She's more like a wallflower
Like the one that Stryker sniped
I'm like elixir when I'm with her
'Cause I think I like her type

She might seem shy in person, it's no lie
She's always nervous
But the verdict is she's worth it
She gets crap but don't deserve it
She look like Emily Strange
Always ravin' 'bout her favs
Wanna conquer her like Kang
When you kiss like Cassie Lang

There's no way I can pronounce Neo Geo Evangelion
I can't refute 'cause she's so cute
And so I suck my belly in
X-23 and Hellion, odd couple, to be kind
She's in my heart and in my mind
And now she's in my rhymes

She's wordy and verbose
Prolific and prone to prose
Always sick and has a cold
Stuffed nose she's got to blow
I've got many cold remedies, many old enemies
I've got a girl that kick their ass like River from Serenity

Nerd girl, I don't deserve you
I don't get the references you refer to
I love your Lipsmackers and your lack of perfume
I hope to get you home by curfew
WORD UP!

Her parents are divorced
And there's often daddy issues
Try not to take advantage
While I hand her all my tissues
She hips me to the bands she likes
I couldn't be more clueless
Every word comes out her mouth
Is now on my to-do list

She's romantic, known to panic
With anxiety attacks
Literary, it's so scary
Reading Brontes back to back
She's playing Ragnarok on her mom's Magnavox
She's underneath my skin like a million nanobots

She's like Annie Potts in 'Busters
Get my freak on like I'm Egon
Say third base right to her face
And she will be like, be gone
If not now know I can wait like Lucas and the locusts
And you know this we'll by glow sticks
Stay up late, perfect the slow kiss

You can't resist Chris 'cause he helps you de-stress
While you play Animal Crossing on your Nintendo DS
Baby, if we can't be a couple
Give up on getting married
I'll remember we connected
And how it happens so rarely
(I'm serious, girl!)

Nerd girl, I don't deserve you
I don't get the references you refer to
I love your Lipsmackers and your lack of perfume
I hope to get you home by curfew
WORD UP!

Nerd girl, I don't deserve you
I don't get the references you refer to
I love your Lipsmackers and your lack of perfume
I hope to get you home by curfew
WORD UP!

Nerd girl, I don't deserve you
I don't get the references you refer to
I love your Lipsmackers and your lack of perfume
I hope to get you home by curfew
WORD UP!

    General CommentThey don't exist. Deal with it.
    They do CFC, but as MC Chris says, they tend to blend into the background. Or maybe they only exist in certain social circles. As far as song meaning - it sounds like this is written from a nostalgic, high school perspective - references to curfews, lipsmackers and third base all sound like the stuff of teenage geeks and not what 30something MC Chris would be dealing with nowadays. But he does start off by talking about girls at his shows, so maybe it's a combination of girls he's met since blowing up and the girls he remembers from the past. Feels very sincere.

    General CommentTo MsKtty89 & Vinuash on Lucas & the Locusts.. It's from the movie Lucas with Corey Haim, he's a nrrrd who can't seem to get the girl because she's content with him being her smart friend. But there's a scene where you learn that he has a love for locusts when he handles a baby locust after a group of jocks hit it with their car.. they then slap it out of his hand and kill it..

    General CommentThis is a song about girls like me, and girls I go for. The ones who collect comic books, watch Sci-fi channel, and listen to bands most people hate or haven't heard of.

    I love the Kang and RO references, haha...very cute. LIPSMACKERS ARE AWESOME!

    General Comment@ unplural: You're rude, GTFO.

    I'm curious if anyone can explain to me the "Lucas and the locusts" reference. That's the one thing I haven't heard before.

    General CommentTo MsKtty89.

    The Lucas and the Locusts reference, is I believe two different things. Lucas being George Lucas waiting to make episodes 1,2,3 of Star Wars, and the Locusts, being the antagonists from the Gears of War series of video games, which waited under ground in order to ambush mankind.

    General Commentthey do exist. not only are they hard to find, but any girl claiming to be a nrrrd grrrl is probably just desperate for attention and pretends to be into comics etc to impress guys. the real ones are nerdy for no one but themselves and don't feel the need to brag about it. which is why they might seem to be figments of your imagination d^.^b
