And you thought design geeks weren't sexy!

The best Lady Gaga parody yet? Judge for yourself:

I lay it out like they do in magazines

check out this typeface it's like smoking nicotine (I love it)

using Adobe's not the same without a Mac

if it was lead it would be lined up on a track

Oh yeah! Via Jennifer Ouellette.

Greta Christina has written some alternative lyrics for Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to remove all the bad religion references and update it to something more scientifically sound. It's called "Evolve This Way", and now it just needs somebody to actually sing it. In a perfect world, Lady Gaga…

clever - but we need all the lyrics, please!

Okay, molly:

I lay it out like they do in magazines
check out this typeface it's like smoking nicotine (I love it)
using Adobe's not the same without a Mac
if it was lead it would be lined up on a track

oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got
oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah
N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah

Thought about Futura but the em space was to wide
not even when condensed,believe me i've already tried
Gill sans the G is wack when it's in lowercase
Avante Garde you make me hard but like Helvetica you've been played

oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got
oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah
N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah

I won't tell you that you're modern
post- or nouveau
cause I'm hype'n with my type'n
I'm not freehandin', letterpressin', texting or skywriting
like a finger on a keyboard
break a nail before I cross you
see my references, reference this
check this font cause it's sans serif

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

(They're on the YouTube page)

But I wanted to see the actual Neutraface, does that make me a geek?

Best Lady Gaga Parody? Oh, how we'll laugh in 20 years remembering those, and that *what's her name*. Write a funny song about fonts, and just ignore the crap disposable pop culture and maybe it will go away. Why, In my dayâ¦

Give me a C, a bouncy C.

And get off my lawn!
