I am taking NO credit for this song. Needs to be heard so I collaborated this video which required absolutely no talent! Tot ziens!

I met Nikola Tesla in
a diner in New York
He was eating cotton
candy in the dark
I sat down at his
table and I asked him for a light
When his eyes met
mine I thought I felt a spark

His glance was like
an X-Ray and he looked me to the bone
A touch from him my
blood began to boil
It was the 24th
of March he had a really cute moustache
and then he kissed me in an
alley and I felt my insides coil

Nikola Tesla
I wish you'd invent a
Current that could activate my heart
Mysterious Gesture
I do not expect you
Come back from 1932
I'll always burn a light for you

Sweetheart...

I'd dreamed of
someone like you ever since I was a girl
A mystery man
inventing something new
Just a guy with a
transformer who could make me something warmer
Who could open up my
circuitry and make me someone new

When Edison got angry
my Nikola only grinned
And explained that
wireless power was the way
He'd overturn the
system there was no way to resist him
And he kissed me one
more time and told me he'd come back one day

Nikola Tesla
I wish you'd invent a
Current that could activate my heart
Mysterious Jester
I do not expect you
Come back from 1932
I'll always burn a light for you

Sweetheart...

Edison's enemy,
Man who gave us AC,
He'll always be to me
My little Serb
Voice on the radio
I'm looking high and
low
Here in the afterglow
Send me a word...

So I waited while the
valves inside my heart all
dimmed and
chilled
He had secrets that
he stored inside eight chests
And he took his many
mysteries and walked off into history
And he left me with a
fading sort of feeling in my breast

I've been waiting
here for decades, just a dusty afterthought
I've been waiting for
Nikola to come back
It is painful and
ironic not to mention electronic
That he'd vanish in a
crackle, into air and fade to black

Nikola Tesla
I wish you'd invent a
Current that could activate my heart
Mysterious Jester
I do not expect you
Come back from 1932
I'll always burn a light for you

Sweetheart...
