Pseudo Intellectual

I am a pseudo intellectual;
The most intelligent person youíre likely to meet  
All of my opinions are solidly factual  
You may now kiss my educated feet  

Youíll oft times find me in downtown cafes †
And hip bars where youíve never been  
Pretending to write sophisticated essays  
About foreign films that you've never seen  

I wear big, black rimmed glasses on my face  
Even though there's nothing wrong with my eyes  
I carry my laptop around in a vintage case  
And have a collection of snazzy bow ties  

Iím well informed on the important issues of the day  
And I shun the mainstream media  
I consider myself smarter than you in every way  
For Iíve studied in depth on Wikipedia  

Get out of my knowledgeable way!  
Smartest guy in the room coming through  
I shall call you out for using a clichť  
And correct the way you say Ďcordon bleuí  

When Iím telling you about the things I know  
Iíll drop quotes from Philosophy's greats  
Which I memorised off brainyquote.com to blow  
The minds of my chin stroking mates  

Donít talk to me about politics philistine  
I know all there is to know about that †
I've been involved in activism since I was a teen  
They asked me to be a foreign diplomat  

Ho ho ho, what's that you said?  
What a cute point of view youíve got  
Thereís just so much that you still haven't read †  
But don't worry, at least you took a shot †

If I make sure to use really long words  
Theyíll think Iím a genius, of this I'm certain  
Just as long as none of these nosy turds  
Peek behind my pseudo velvet curtain  

Because if they do they'll surely see  
That I have no idea what Iím saying or doing  
And even though I say 'I hate the bourgeoisie'  
Itís just a load of bullshit that Iím spewing  

Though, with every argument that I win  
I feel my social status increasing  
I must keep on feeding this emptiness within  
Whose intense hunger is unceasing †

Yes I shall rise to the top of the intelligence ladder  
To be the authority on all that is smart †
Onto the naive world I shall empty my bladder  
And I'll tell them all that it's postmodern art  
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †

UnlessÖÖ.  


A scholar of †true distinction  
Takes my arse off to school  
And blows my points into extinction  
Exposing me as a damn fool †  
†† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
Well even that won't be the end of me †
And my pseudo intellectual ways †
For Iíll just go down the street you see  
To one of the other unknown cafes  

Where Iíll find my next group of suckers  
And do my routine all over again  
Youíll never stop me mother fuckers  
For I'm an intellectual King amongst men!
