Not Geek Enough

Girl you have to be sympathetic
For the pursuits in my life are McKellen magnetic
Call me positively geeky, but you're negatively nagging
Texas Instrument, calculating all the time I'm wasting
So I drop you like a franchise game, focus on the now
Devote my energies to Half-Life, Ninja Gaiden and WoW
Beam me up to a screening of an anime classic
Never heard of Akira!?!?  My Kaneda's gone flaccid

Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
I'd say live long and prosper but you'd miss my meaning
Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
Call you Nemo cause if you think that we'll work it out you're dreaming

My Little Pony lacks knowledge
Failing English Lit at community college
You're like a second Death Star, lacking luster and completion
You constantly confuse Joss Whedon and Wil Wheaton
You won't watch Firefly because you claim to hate westerns
You'd sooner gaze at Gossip Girl than Next Generation
So I Star Trek on, past your aversion to my culture
And I Quantum Leap onto my nerdcore altar

Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
I rolled a saving throw for romance and hit a natural 20
Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
So take off on your Logan's Run because my patience just turned 30

You were my pretty Rainbow Bright
But now you scream like a banshee when I'm out late at night
Playing Magic with my friends, slaying villain after villain
like the beasts I tap, take advantage of my tramplin'
All over your heart, leave you broken like the Triforce
But I'll not raise my sword, nock an arrow, ride a horse
You're no longer my Zelda, leave your bitch-ass to Gannon
The Harry Potter costume you wear isn't even canon

Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
Get my emotional directness from a comic called QC
Baby you're not geek enough for me
That's just the 8-bit reality
Baby you're not geek enough for me
Think you're XKCD but you've grown tired like Sluggy
