Geeks in Love

Love can be a pretty geeky thing sometimes.

lyrics

The sparks that flew when I saw you at the gaming shop last week,
They lit the fire of my desire for an unrepentant geek,
And so I thought I'd shoot my questions first, 'cause I think you're pretty neato,
Going Solo's pretty rough, but it sure beats going Greedo.

So I'll give you my number
(Wrote it in binary)...
You can call me any time
(Assuming you read binary)...

We could roll into bed with a critical threat,
And confirm what's in both our hearts,
But I won't go it alone, so I'll wait by the phone
For Player 2 to press START.
We could be geeks in love...
We could be geeks in love...

So set your course for romance and engage at maximum warp.
Let's face the facts, you are my Dax, and I can be your Worf.
I've been searching 'cross this galaxy for the one that I adore,
I've shed my doubts, I want to shout, "This is the droid I'm looking for!"

And you have got my number...
(Still written in binary...)
So you've got me on the line...
(So I've got this thing for binary...)

We could roll into bed with a critical threat,
And confirm what's in both our hearts,
But I won't go it alone, so I'll wait by the phone
For Player 2 to press START.
We could be geeks in love...
We could be geeks in love...

[Spoken] I'm not very good at being direct, so this next part's going to be in code. It's about you.
I think you're such a...
01100010 01100001 01100010 01100101
And I think that we could be...
01100001 01100011 01100101
And now I wanna take you up to...
01100010 01100101 01100100
Because you drive me off the...
01100101 01100100 01100111 01100101

You finally called my number...
(I knew that you read binary...)
Let's go out next Friday?
(Now how's your hexidecimal?)

We could roll into bed with a critical threat,
And confirm what's in both our hearts,
But I won't go it alone, so I'll wait by the phone
For Player 2 to press START.
We could be geeks in love...
We could be geeks in love...

Rock, Paper, Cynic writes geek-powered songs for people who are bad at being grown-ups. His music covers serious topics like like having a crush on the National Security Agency or taking Netflix as a monogamous lover.

His songs sound like if Jonathan Coulton, the Barenaked Ladies and John K. Samson climbed into a van and weren't allowed out until they wrote something.
