Yo we're the nerds and we're not bizarre
We just have our own worldview and our egghead superstars
Richard Feynman, Ed Hubble, Freeman Dyson too
In the science classroom we all know just what to do

Gonna dress up like Tron at Comic-Con
We are the people who won't die, we just respawn
Urkel dance, Urkel dance, Urkel dance whoa mama!
Point and laugh, we are undeterred

Oh nerd up, everybody say
"Inconceivable!" and "flying bovine, run away!"
Nerd up, it's the code word
At JPL and Google you know that we're preferred

We're reading XKCD and think it's fly
We're still a little pissed off Dumbledore just had to die
We redefine what is square and what is cool
Our propeller beanie caps don't mean we are flying fools

We endeavor not to ever leave things to chance
We don't have the time for lame traditional romance
Nerd romance, nerd romance, nerd romance for me mama
Come on baby pon farr is the word

Oh nerd up, everybody say
"I will take the ring although I do not know the way"
Nerd up, it's the code word
And 42's the answer, the question is inferred

Nerd up, everybody say
"We admit we're killers but we just won't kill today"
Nerd up, it's the code word
We hang out in the venues where OK Go is heard

Nerd up, everybody say
"Get those units fixed by noon or there'll be hell to pay"
Nerd up, it's the code word
Reality's for Normals, we think that it's absurd
