Boys of GenCon (Song Parody)

Boys of GenCon
(March 2015 by W Scott Grant, Parody of Boys of Summer by Don Henley)

Nobody in the hall
Nobody on the street
I feel it in the air
The Con was just last week
Empty booths, empty rooms
The Con staff’s all alone
I’m walking by your hotel
Though I know that you’ve gone home

But I can see you-
Your cosplay shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair dyed green and your anime on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of GenCon have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how I took your picture
Remember how I knew your meme
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what this gamer’s made of

I can see you-
Your cosplay shinin’ in the sun
I can see you walking in the parade, smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of GenCon have gone

Out on Georgia Street I saw a GenCon sticker on a Cadilac
A little voice inside my head said, “Don’t go back, you can never go back”
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your cosplay shinin’ in the sun
You got the blouse cut low and that corset on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of GenCon have gone

I can see you-
Your cosplay shinin’ in the sun
You got steampunk goggles and a top hat on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of GenCon have gone
