Nikola Tesla Dood

by Sarah Donner & The Oatmeal



The Oatmeal and Sarah Donner made a YouTube video to raise money for the Tesla Museum!


You were six foot six - a hit with nineteenth century chicks
And if I had my way - your mustache would have its own grave
Nikola Tesla why - did you leave the world behind
Your genius I say - can never be repaid
‘cept by digging up your vertebrae and firing it into outerspace

Aw Mr. Tesla dude - I’d hug you in the nude
Nikola Tesla sir - you make my hoo-ha purr
But Mr. Edison douche - I’d punch you in the pooch
You are a bloated, pig-faced, worthless mooch

Thomas Edison, guy - I want to vomit on your life
Set fire to your wife - and fertilize my bonzai
But Mr. Tesla man - I’d vote for you if you ran
Oh Mr. Tesla guy - you rained down awesome from the sky

Lazy ass electrons only go one way
With Edison the Douche’s direct current buffet
But we got Bitches to the left - But we got Bitches to the right
with an alternating current, A Tesla party’s outta sight!

Mr. Tesla hey - I want to make your day
I’d roundhouse a bear or two- or be a favourite chair for you
Nikola Tesla guy - I just want buy you
A kitten that shoot fireballs - I’m smitten with your lightning bolts

If you asked me to I’d cook koala stew
or an endangered species BBQ - ‘cuz Mr. Tesla I love you
But Mr. Tesla man - I’d vote for you if you ran
Oh Mr. Tesla guy - you rain down awesome from the sky
