Steampunk Enough

lyrics

He saw the custom goggles she had strapped above her ears,
He went out and bought a Nerf gun and slapped on a couple gears.
He walked up to tell her hi, she looked away and said goodbye.
He's not steampunk enough for her.

He bought a gothic vampire costume online,
Strapped some belts in random places, glowing contacts for his eyes.
She walked right past him to her friends, not even looking at him twice.
He's not steampunk enough for her

He's not steampunk enough for her.
She's got discerning tastes and no time for amateurs
No dilletantish effort or halfhearted poser work could be
Steampunk enough for her...

He went home and did some research on etsy.com
Cut a pair of leather bracers from a purse he stole from mom
Got vintage clothing from estate sales and he wore it with aplomb,
Still not steampunk enough for her.

He's not steampunk enough for her.
She's got discerning tastes and no time for amateurs
No dilletantish effort or halfhearted poser work could be
Steampunk enough for her...

There's just something 'bout a woman in a corset with a cane
And hydraulic shoulder armor that will drive a man insane.
From her leather boots and jodhpurs to her monocle and gloves,
he'll do anything to win her steampunk love...

He knew he'd been found lacking so he went back to the start.
Found a diabolic genius to replace his body parts
With cybernetic limbs and a chronometric heart.
Now he's steampunk enough for her.

Now He's steampunk enough her.
She's got discerning tastes and no time for amateurs
From his functioning jet pack to his retracting metal spurs, now he's
Steampunk enough for her...
Steampunk enough...
for her.
