I’m a VC

Hey you listening, it’s going down just like this

(1) You know, I just want to tell you, tell you:
It’s been great gettin’ to know a little about you, about you.
And I wonder, should we be together?
Should we commit to each other for today and forever? Forever.

(2) Hey, you’ve been on my mind.
Been at least a few hours since I’ve seen your slides
Since I met you at the Rosewood, or was it South By
Time for us to talk about our future lives.

(3) I know you, you want me, I might want you, too.
Let’s share your deeper secrets and find if I can trust in you.
I like you, just maybe, you’ve got a clue.
Meet my partners on a Monday, we’ll see if they can dig you, too.

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC,
I drive around in a Prius and I eat all the sushi
I’m a VC, who are you?

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC,
It takes more than Powerpoint Slides to impress me
I’m a VC, who are you?

(4) Hey, will you ever learn?
It’s all about the feelings, not the legal terms.
When you mentioned NDA, I got concerned
– we don’t sign no NDAs –
Don’t want to fall in love and then get burned

(5) Twenty pre? I can’t believe you think that’s cheap
For a company you started with your dog last week.
Let’s back up, let’s do Bucks, I’ll wear my favorite Khakis
You can buy the Lattes and we’ll climb under the term sheets

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC
I’m the guy people stand in line to meet me.
I’m a VC,
Who are you?

(6) Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC
Don’t go with friends and family, because you complete me.
I’m a VC,
Who are you?

(7) Series A: I like what I see
Series B: You are the one for me
Series C: Don’t dilute me
Series D: Starting to get cold feet
Series E: Oh no!
Series F: Where is my IPO?
Series G: Getting low
Series H: Time to go

(8) Hey, do you feel it baby?
Because you know VCs, I’m a definite, maybe.
– that’s between a yes and a no –
Sorry I’ve been gone, I’ve been a little crazy
At the end of the day it’s all about the Hamilton’s, baby

(9) I know you, you seem great
I love what you are debuting
But I’ve got so many other deals that I’m now reviewing

(10) It’s not you, it’s just me
I’ve got so many wooing
Like the Chinese knock-off of what your team is so good doing

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC
Can’t take a leak without people who pitch me
I’m a VC, I’m a VC
Who are you?

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC
With my Wonder Twin powers no fucker can beat me
I’m a VC,
Who are you?

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC
Stanford, Harvard educated, even MIT
I’m a VC,
Who are you?

Cause I’m a VC, I’m a VC,
If you need to find me check out Facebook, LinkedIn, or tweet me.
I’m a VC,
Who are you?
