Stan Lee’s New Song “Ode to Geek”

Hey there. Did you catch Stan Lee’s new video with the Ode to Geek song? Published on 5 Aug 2015, Stan Lee originally wrote “Ode to Geeks” (to the tune of Yankee Doodle) for his Lifetime Achievement Award at the first ever 2013 Geekie Awards. Composer and music director of The Geekie Awards, George Shaw created an original tune for Stan’s words and an virtual choir via the internet sings those rousing words.

 

In case you missed it, here it is:

Here are lyrics:

Let us praise those who are geeks

and pity those who aren’t.
We’re a very special clique
all else is just abhorrent.

Only geeks know what is in,
that’s why we’re so admired.
You could hear geeks speak all day
and never once be tired.

That’s why I’m so proud tonight
because I’m with my peers.
All of those who aren’t geeks
are crying in their beers.

So here’s a toast to all things geek,
so hip, so in, so clever.
My heart is filled,
I can’t speak, but I’ll be geek forever.
