YKK AP – I’m an Architect Lyrics

SHARE

Yo!

Where my redlines at?

I picture Frank Lloyd Wright while you think I’m Mike Brady,

And Engineer’s devour our work and call us crazy,
We’ve got rounded specs but they ain’t for looks,
It’s from staring at our screens and all those history books.

We turn an empty space into a world of possibility;
Maintaining privacy and tranquility,
Graduate from school ’bout to change the world,
But I’m stuck designing thrones with a clockwise swirl.

CHORUS:

We’re Architect’s, Oh! With creative flare,
Redesigning the world from buildings to chairs,
It’s a daily grind but we love what we do,
A satisfying job giving you a better view.

Building the elmurs and King of Scraps,
Making models outta paper and bottle caps,
I’m a master of BIM and lines with dashes,
Except I lose my mind if Reddit crashes.

Green is gold and LEED is big,
Know the Golden Triangle and learn your Trig (Trigonometry),
Challenge the formula and push the envelope,
“Put more glazing over here”, “that looks really dope!”

CHORUS:

We’re Architect’s, Oh! With creative flare,
Redesigning the world from buildings to chairs,
It’s a daily grind but we love what we do,
A satisfying job giving you a better view.

Cut the AC in your office just to stay awake,
Expresso and RedBull ’till I get a stomach ache,
With our cotton blazers high we have a sense of style,
To the rest of the world we just point and smile.

I read code books while I’m on vacation,
Take pictures of my latest creation,
We wear black and gray with no logos on our threads,
So many sleepless nights we’re like the walking dead.

CHORUS:

We’re Architect’s, Oh! With creative flare,
Redesigning the world from buildings to chairs,
It’s a daily grind but we love what we do,
A satisfying job giving you a better view.

Got so many scales might as well call me a fish,
“Does your lawn look boring?”, “I’ll design you a dish!”
Starchitects; no, call them Hollywood actors,
Because they can’t deal with General Contractors.

Spec. book wasn’t clear so I got these RFI’s,
Clients making changes that we all dispise,
We’ve got better form that Jordan Jones shot,
And designs that funtion like a million dollar yacht.

CHORUS:

We’re Architect’s, Oh! With creative flare,
Redesigning the world from buildings to chairs,
It’s a daily grind but we love what we do,
A satisfying job giving you a better view.

“I’m an Architect!”

“Oh, you mean like Ted Mosby?”
