As Is

Pretty little thing let me light your candle,
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes I am


I'm yours no question, girl, right from the start
Throw it down, got the eighty-year lease on my heart
You’re the woman in my life, could some day end up my wife
You hold my hand and you say you never wanna be apart
But let me 'splain something 'bout the Dude
No, I'm not coppin' attitude, girl, but if you want this show renewed
Gotta get with the program, know who I am
And all the points of interest a geek must include
Gotta roll D20s with the brethren
Tabletoppin’ campaigns, callin’ me Notorious DM
Lead them weekly, I’m not stating this obliquely
In specific, my commitments are not things you can condemn
I got online headshots to deliver
Gun ‘em down, give ‘em Hell, don’t you like that I’m a giver?
You say my loyalty’s a virtue, I’m not tryin’ to hurt you
I’m loyal my peeps, too rollin’ like a river

Pretty little thing let me light your candle,
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes I am


Rockin’ mics at the show, can’t say you weren’t aware
But don’t give me Hell at home because the band is always there
This excellence takes time it’s tricky to rock a rhyme
I’m not illin’, still your villain, can’t keep chillin’ in our lair
You say I never spend enough time with you
But it’s hard to hang at home when you hear the call of Cthulhu
It’s a nerd’s world outside and if you want in on this ride
You got to hop into the sidecar and set your view askew
Wait your turn, baby-doll, cause I’m a nerd platformer
Draw my geek six shoota like a Canadian Informer
Open road, open source, mindful of the Living Force
From Hoth to Tatooine, Dinosaucers to Transformers
With my sonic speed - can’t stop this hurricane
Call me Maverick, a Top Man, a Furyan
Eyes glowing I’m geek electric
cyber-fistic, watch me now on Netflix

Pretty little thing let me light your candle,
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes I am


You’re the rhythm section holdin’ my progression together
lead of my heart, strummin’ on your tune forever
Never thought I’d have an x-axis,
baseline, fact is, never gonna relax sis
I’m Johnny Storm flying fire through the skies
I burn bright, shield those pretty brown eyes
My flame is on for those separated thighs
But I tend to singe hearts, bridges burned with my goodbyes
Stretch this metaphor gotta have a Susan to my Reed
Flew the Falcon like Solo, but a man has needs
Hooked on my heroine, had to take heed
Cuz a maverick fails where this duo succeeds
Understand, I must be free, now that I got a home base
Lazer tag can’t become freeze holding me in place
Loved like no one before wait for me at the door
The empty sky as my witness I’ll return to your embrace

Pretty little thing let me light your candle,
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, yes I am
