Charted: 9
  • They see me mowin' my front lawn
    I know they're all thinkin' I'm so
    White and nerdy

    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Can't you see I'm white and nerdy?
    Look at me, I'm white and nerdy

    I wanna roll with the gangstas
    But so far they all think I'm too
    White and nerdy

    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    I'm just too white and nerdy
    Really white and nerdy

    First in my class here at M-I-T
    Got skills, I'm a champion at D and D
    M.C. Escher, that's my favorite M.C.
    Keep you're forty, I'll just have an Earl Grey tea
    My rims never spin, to the contrary
    You'll find that they're quite stationary
    All of my action figures are cherry
    Stephen Hawking's in my library

    My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
    Got people beggin' for my top eight spaces
    Yo, I know pi to a thousand places
    Ain't got no grills, but I still wear braces
    I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
    I'm a wiz' at Minesweeper, and I play for days
    Once you've see my sweet moves, you're gonna stay amazed
    My fingers movin' so fast, I'll set the place ablaze

    There's no killer app I haven't run (run)
    At Pascal, well, I'm number one (one)
    Do vector calculus just for fun
    I ain't got a gat, but I got a soldering gun (What?)
    Happy Days is my favorite theme song
    I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
    I'll ace any trivia quiz you bring on
    I'm fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon

    Here's the part I sing on

    You see me roll on my Segway
    I know in my heart they think I'm
    White and nerdy

    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Can't you see I'm white and nerdy?
    Look at me, I'm white and nerdy

    I'd like to roll with the gangstas
    Although it's apparent I'm too
    White and nerdy

    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    I'm just too white and nerdy
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    I been browsin', inspectin' X-Men comics
    You know I collect 'em
    The pens in my pocket, I must protect them
    My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
    Shoppin' online for deals on some writable media
    I edit Wikipedia
    I memorized Holy Grail really well
    I can recite it right now and have you R-O-T-F-L-O-L

    I got a business doing websites (websites)
    When my friends need some code, who do they call?
    I do H-T-M-L for 'em all
    Even made a homepage for my dog, yo
    I got myself a fanny pack
    They were havin' a sale down at The Gap
    Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
    Pop, pop, hope no one sees me gettin' freaky

    I'm nerdy in the extreme
    Whiter than sour cream
    I was in AV club, and glee club
    And even the chess team
    Only question I ever thought was hard
    Was "Do I like Kirk, or do I like Picard?"
    Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Fair
    Got my name on my underwear

    They see me strollin', they're laughin'
    And rollin' their eyes 'cause I'm so
    White and nerdy

    Just because I'm white and nerdy
    Just because I'm white and nerdy
    All because I'm white and nerdy
    Holy cow, I'm white and nerdy

    I wanna bowl with the gangstas
    But, oh well, it's obvious I'm
    White and nerdy

    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    Think I'm just too white and nerdy
    I'm just too white and nerdy
    Look at me, I'm white and nerdy

  • Christa from Colorado Springs, CoI registered on this site just to tell you that it's "keep your 40" (keep the 40 belonging to you), not "keep you're forty" (keep you are forty; makes no sense). Also, there are no hyphens in "MIT", "HTML", or "ROTFLOL". Furthermore... this song is awesome and I listen to it over and over and never get tired of it :-D.
  • Chris from Norman, OkThis may not be a popular comment but it takes a lot of talent to do what he does. I hope he never stops.
  • Jadon from Port Saint Lucie, FlI love Weird Al, the video and song! I know all the words and scenes by heart. The cameos are awesome. I like the way it parodies "Ridin'" also. BTW Donny Osmond's moves are the best! Oh, also, in the beginning "Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key of MADtv appear in the blue 1967 Chevy Impala convertible" (from Wikipedia). Those guys look nothing like Chamillionaire though.
  • Luke from Manchester, England"i don't like this song"

  • Liesa from Roy, UtI love Weird Al's music. It's always good for times when you just need a good laugh haha
  • Alan from Rochester, NyI've liked Weird Al's stuff for years, I know he had some big hits in the 80s, but I was glad to see him get some "mainstream credit" back when this was real big.
    Great song, I admit some of it definitely applies to me. ;)
  • Keith from Missoula, MtThe equation that appears in the background in the music video around 1:21 is the Schroedinger equation, a differential equation used to predict the location of quantum mechanical particles.
  • Bearnie from Walnut Grove,at the beginning of the video, chamillionaire appears to be in the car
  • Lucy from Rhinebeck, NyMy favorite line of this song is "whiter than sour cream." Hilarious! In the music video, my favorite was when he finally got the Star Wars video and he made that funny face.
  • Kc from Garden City, MiThe blury picture on his Top 8 is actually Screech from "Saved by the Bell"
  • Joe from Chicago, IlThe video features a flaming Pac-Man in the back.
  • Miles from Vancouver, Canada"M.C. Escher, that's my favorite M.C."
