I don't think I can afford my Ugandan Girlfriend,
Who thought falling in love would cost so much?
We only knew each-other for a weekend,
And now I'm giving it all to stay in touch.
(And I honestly don't think that it's enough)

She's definitely worth it,
There's no doubt about that,
A smile that could launch a thousand ships,
But it's a logistical nightmare,
To get her over here,
Immigration laws that make me sick.

She seems to think,
I'm an eccentric millionaire,
When it took me every penny,
Just to get me back over there.

I guess we'll have to rely on our imaginations,
To keep us entertained while I'm out there,
That and internet films that we can download,
While she plays with her phone,
And scratches her hair.

I wanted to impress her with a bungee jump,
But that's something I cannot afford,
To tell you the truth,
That doesn't make me too upset,
Because being bored,
Is preferable to being dead.

They have been described as quality quirky pop punk, post-punk and sounding a little bit like Jonathan Richman. But I prefer to describe them as Nerd Rock. The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...? ... more
