  1. They see me mowing, my front lawn
    I know they’re all thinking 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 gangsters
    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 really white and nerdy

    First in my class here in MIT
    Got skills, I’m a champion in D&D
    Mc Extra That’s my favorite MC
    Keep your fourty I’ll just have an earl grey tea
    My rims never spin, to the contrary
    you’ll find they’re quite stationary
    All my action figures are (chairy?)
    stephen hawking’s in my library
    my myspace page is all totally pimped out
    got people begging 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 mayonaise
    I’m a wiz at minesweeper I can play for days
    once you see my sweet moves you’ll stay amazed
    I think I’m moving so fast I set the place ablaze
    (I kill a rabi run?), half passed out while number one
    do vector calculus just for fun
    I ain’t got a gat but I got a soldering gun
    happy days is my favorite theme song
    I can sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
    ace any trivia quiz you bring on
    i’m fluent in javascript as well as klingon

    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 like to roll with the gangstas
    although it’s apparent i’m too white nerdy
    think i’m just too white and nerdy
    think i’m just too white and nerdy
    i’ve been browsing and inspect’n
    x-men comics, you know I collect em
    the pens in my pocket, I must protect them
    my ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
    shopping online for just some writeable media
    I edit wikipedia
    I memorize holy grail really well
    I can recite it right now, and have you ROTFLOL
    I got a business doing 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 doll
    yo, got myself a fanny pack
    they were having a sale down at the gap
    spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap (pop pop)
    hope no one sees me, getting freaky
    I’m nerdy to the extreme, whiter than sour cream
    I was in AV club and glee club and the chess team
    the only question I, ever thought was hard
    was do I like kirk, or do I like picard
    spend every week at the renessance fair
    got my name on my underwear

    they see me strolling, they laughing
    at rolling the rice girls?
    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 want to 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

    I couldn’t figure out what he says before ‘Half passed out while number one’. Something about a forum? I dunno.

  2. whoops, the 2nd hook should be:

    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 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 got caught up laughing too hard to do it correctly.

  3. About half way through the first verse where you have I killed a Rabbi…

    That line is:
    “There’s no killer app I haven’t run, at Pastel I’m number one”

    Pastel being a form of programming.

  4. Pascal, not pastel.

  5. I think that is the best song i have heard in forever. That is great the song fits me.

  6. We find this RE-MAKE as a RE-MIX!!!
    PLEASE,Make some more RE-MIXES of all the other songs he does!!!

    1.Ridin’ (complete)
    2.Grown&Sexy(please do)
    3.Southern Takeover(please do)

    AND ANY OTHER SONGS BY OUR TOP-ARTIST!!!

  7. I will start on more remixes right away!

  8. At the last part, you have “they see me strolling, they laughing
    at rolling the rice girls”
    It should be “They see me strolling, they laughing. And rolling their eyes cuz im white and nerdy.”

    Ok, thanks DooD

  9. I just wanted to reprint it with the corrected lyrics

    They see me mowin’
    My front lawn
    I know they’re all thinking 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 really white and nerdy.

    I’ve been browsin’, inspectin’
    X-Men comics, you know I collect ‘em
    The pens in my pocket, I must protect ‘em

    Gettin’ freaky
    I’m nerdy in the extreme
    And whiter than sour cream

    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 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

  10. White’n’Nerdy
    Is a GOOD re-make/RE-MIX.

    Keep it up…

  11. lol i have never laughed at a song so much as i did with this one.

  12. I think the “Shopping online” line is still wrong. I can’t make the correct words out, but I’m pretty sure it’s not “just some writable media”.

    Additionally, after the “I’m fluent in Javascript as well as Klingon” part, there are some words (probably Klingon) that I can’t make out. Anybody white and nerdy enough to translate it? ;)

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
