This video is in response to the archaic requirement that Nerdfighters create a song about what kind of Nerdfighter they are. We decided that we are Eclectanerds.

We did it a capella because we can't play instruments. Yet.


Lyrics (to the tune of 'Modern Major General')

I am the very model of a Nerdfighter Eclectanerd
I've information epic, awesome, literary, and absurd
I play Dungeons and Dragons and I quote the Docs historical
From William Hartnell to Matt Smith in order categorical

I'm very well aquainted too with matters of the Whedonverse
I sing with all his musicals and know the words to every verse
From Buffy to Avengers he is teeming with a lot of jest
I've many cheerful facts about the shows and lines that I love best

I'm very good at apparating, quidditch, potions, charms, and spells
I know alohomora, lumos, nox, and stupefy as well
In short in matters epic, awesome, literary, and absurd
I am the very model of a Nerdfighter Eclectanerd

I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Lancelot's
I answer hard acrostics; I've a pretty taste for paradox
I'm such a swot I rang in the new year by watching Stephen Fry
I learned my ignorance along with Alan Davies on QI

I can tell undoubted Sophocles from a Euripedes
I know the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes
Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din a lot
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Spamalot

Then I can write a washing bill in iambic pentameter
And tell you every detail of the TARDIS' interior
In short in matters epic, awesome, literary, and absurd
I am the very model of a Nerdfighter Eclectanerd

In fact when I know what is meant by Gallifrey and Rassilon
When I can tell a Raxacoricofallapatorian
When such things as two shadows and stone angels cause me to withdraw
Then I will know precisely what is meant by Vashta Nerada

When I have learned what tactics can be used with transportation
The TARDIS, the Impala, Enterprise, and the DeLorean
Then I captain Serenity and the Millennium Falcon
And call the crew of Battlestar Galactica to their stations

Jabberwocky, Kings Quest, R2-D2, Neverland, Mordor
Dragons, Knitting, Princess Bride, Zork, Mythbusters, Books, Callandor
NaNoWriMo, Sherlock, Lemmings, SG-1, Felicia Day
Katniss, Xena, Aslan, Mistborn, Labyrinth, DFTBA!
