Tim Minchin
Rock 'n' Roll Nerd lyrics


He doesn't have a problem with drugs
He just doesn't get them
He's fine that his mates have tattoos
But he thinks they'll regret them
He likes going to pubs
But he hates when the music's too loud
He tends not to go to rock concerts
Cos he can't stand the crowd
But all he's ever wanted to be
Is a rock star on Rage or MTV
But he knows that it's not fucking likely
He's just turned thirty

He knows that he will always be
A rock 'n' roll nerd
He'll keep writing songs the world will never hear
And though they won't be heard
He'll just keep writing
Oh yeah

But you see the problem is
He always dreamt of being a star
But he learned piano instead of guitar
Which in the nineties didn't get you very far
So while all the other kids were learning Stairway
He was the piano to their forte
But he was convinced one day
He'd rock their fucking asses
Be an icon for the disenfranchised masses
And grow his hair long
And rebel against the state
But just for now that'd have to wait
Cos he's running late for his morning classes

And he will always be
A rock 'n' roll nerd
He'll keep playing gigs that no one knows about
And though it sounds absurd
He'll just keep playing
Oh yeah

But you see the problem is
There's not much depth in what he's singing
He's a victim of his upper middle class upbringing
So he can't write about the hood
Or bling bling
So he sits and imagines his girlfriend is dead
To try and invoke some angst in his middle class head
But the bitch is always fine at half past nine
When they go to bed
And he's not spent a single night in prison
He has no issues with nutrition
He has no drinking problem
And no drug addiction
Unless you count the drugs they put in chicken
And marijuana always tends to make him cough
He doesn't look good with his t-shirt off
And when he tries to act tough you can tell he's trickin'

While his mates all go out late
Popping pills and having fun
He goes home and showers
And gets a good eight hours
He gets his thrills from his morning run
And while his mates all go on dates
Taking speed and drinking cans of Jim Bean
He stays home and cooks
Curls up with a book
With the girl he's had since he was seventeen

Cos he's never really been part of the scene
Give him guns 'n' roses, he'll take Queen
He's more into Beatles than The Stones
He's more Stevie Wonder than Ramones
And he's never owned a panel van
He's never shot a Panterra fan
He doesn't know the difference between metal and thrash
He couldn't tell you nothing about Axel and Slash
He likes Ben Folds to the Jackson Five
He knows all the words to Staying Alive
And though he wants to be all grungy and cool
He spent eleven years in a private school

So it don't matter how he tries
He cannot hide behind his rock 'n' roll lies
Cos you've either got it or you don't
You'll either rock it or you won't
Yeah, you've either got it or you don't
Yeah, you'll either rock it or you won't

He knows that his music lacks depth
But it just can't be helped
He has nothing interesting to say
So he writes about himself
But he doesn't want to seem self obsessed
So he writes in third person
In an attempt to seem more rock 'n' roll
But he suspects it's not workin'
And deep in his heart he knows
That he'll never be Silver Chair or Eskimo Joe
And even if he was quite pretty
With small pants like Kylie

He knows that he
Will always be
A rock 'n' roll nerd
He'll keep writing songs the world don't care about
And though it sounds absurd
He'll just keep writing
Oh yeah
You can criticise him
But he won't care
Cos he wants to rock, and he will never be deterred
But he'll always be a fucked up little, try-hard, wannabe rock 'n' roll nerd
Rock 'n' roll nerd

Too long I've been afraid of something something I guess I'll uhhhhh, and it's that's true it comes to much too high a cooooossssttt.

hahaha

Too long I've been afraid of [no idea], losing love I guess I've lost, but if that is love it comes at much too high a cost

Those are the (pseudo-)correct lyrics, I think. :p

Damn Lea Michele and Chris Colfer for covering this song so perfectly.

I'm assuming those are the two people from Glee? I've never seen it. Someone at work asked if I saw last night's episode and when I said no her eyes widened and she looked me up and down.

Yeah, those are the ones that sung Defying Gravity in the show. Glee excels at being a guilty pleasure. How it got an Emmy, though, is just another of the world's mysteries that appear to keep piling up.

I was in a Glee-type club myself. It wasn't a club, it was a program at my school. Musical Theatre. That's right! We put on musicals, and we had multiple worshops throughout the whole year with professional musicians, actors, and dancers. Now look at me. Watching science shows on tv.

If my high school had a similar program and if I had the mentality I have now back then, I'd probably be a part of it. Performing arts is something that's growingly interesting to me, although I would never sing in front of a crowd. It'd be too evil of my part to do that, as people would probably bleed from their ears to death.

Fell into a sea of grass
And disappeared among the shady blades
Children all ran over me
Screaming "Tag! You are the one!"
He trips her as her sandals fail
She says "Stop; I'm a girl
Whose fingernails are made of mother's pearl"
Yellow buttercup helicopters
Orange buttercat chasing after the crazy bee
Mad about somebody
Me and my girlfriend don't wear no shoes
Her nose is painted pepper sunlight
She loves me
I mean it's serious as serious can be
She sings a song
And I listen to what it says:
If you want a friend, feed any animal
There was so much space I cut me a piece
With some fine wine
It brought some peace to my mind
In the summertime
And it rolled
Summer, oh summertime rolls

I'll tell you why I don't
Want to know where you are
I got a joke I been dying to tell you
A silent kid is looking down the barrel
To make the noise that I kept so quiet
I kept it from you, Pitseleh

I'm not what's missing from your life now
I could never be the puzzle pieces
They say that God makes problems
Just to see what you can stand
Before you do as the devil pleases
And give up the thing you love

But no one deserves it

The first time I saw you
I knew it would never last
I'm not half what I wish I was
I'm so angry, I don't think it'll ever pass
And I was bad news for you, just because
I never meant to hurt you

invece poi
Noi non ci siam fidati dell’esperto
Che aveva garantito un deserto,
Dei cammelli su una duna
Che da Bergamo a Verona
Osservan la partenza della gente della zona
Pronti per sfidare il mare e andare verso

L’ultima spiaggia, meta selvaggia
Alla ricerca di un tesoro o forse
Di un po’ di pioggia
Sull’ultima spiaggia
Nella borraccia ho ancora qualche goccia

Wicked - Defying Gravity

I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap

I'm through accepting limits
'Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But 'till I try, I'll never know

It's time to try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down...

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately -
Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me -

Tell them how I
Am defying gravity!
I'm flying high
Defying gravity!
