Geekin' at the Maker Faire

Geekin' at the Maker Faire

(To the tune of "Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball, with apologies to Shel Silverstein)

Well there's gonna be a Maker's Faire
This weekend at the Fiesta Hall
And you know, you're invited to be there

Come on hackers, bring your chips
Grab your irons and solder tips
Extra zipties to stop the rips
We're hacking at the Maker Faire

Blow your poofer and bang your gong
Hack up something to take along
If you're a geek then you belong
We're freakin at the Maker Faire

Where all the nerds and the freaks they're boogyin' together
Steampunk geeks dressed in brass and leather
The YouTube stars and the introverts too
Saying "Check out what I made for you"

Past the Tesla coil and its HV cousins,
Blinkies and LEDs by the dozens
Kids are running through the hall
Across the floor and up the wall
Y'all we're geeking at the Maker Faire

Everybody's fixing all their stuff
if it didn't break it's not new enough
I'll fix yours if you'll fix mine
I'm gonna solder till I go blind
We're geeking at the Maker Faire

Four-eyes scarfing lo mein,
Pyromaniacs poofing propane
Robots, race cars, circuit boards
That special part that everyone hoards
We're geeking at the Maker Faire
