CONvergence 2016: The Nerd Song (You Could Also Call Me an Enthusiast)

This song’s lyrics were written by a friend of ours in 2013 — we challenged him to write a series of limericks about nerdy topics and then we put them to music.  We’ve tweaked them slightly in the years since, but for the most part, this is still the writing work of Steven Henry.

This is one of those songs that is very fun to sing, but sometimes doesn’t get the laugh we hope all our funny songs will garner from our audience.  It kinda depends on the group.  Also, this is the kind of song that if Sarah starts it a touch too fast, I’m going to be out of breath by the time we’re done.  There are a LOT of words to cram into not a whole lot of beats!

Going back and forth with Sarah is always fun, though, and it was our first time performing at CONvergence, so it seemed the right time to add it to the set!

*Please note that this entry has been backdated.  Basically, the summer got completely away from me AND I lost access to posting on the site from the reliable computer I’d been using — and posting via smartphone is not as elegant as it sounds.  So, to make up for it, I’ve retroactively put this entry here.  Hopefully this won’t become an annual trend!
