The Lyrics

An ode to childhood hero.
I am MacGyver - I am MacGyver !

Dear Sir or Ma'am, have you seen my show?
I'm good looking man and I can and know
I'm jack of all trades and a master too
And I will survive
I go by the name of MacGyver -
I am MacGyver!

Just an odd paperclip and a duct tape reel
and Swiss Army knife is all I need
I will make a glider and defuse a bomb
I'll solve the problem
and you know that my name is MacGyver
I am MacGyver!

I know all the physics and the chemistry
I can operate all kinds of gadgetry
Just give me gear and I'll improvise
And I don't need a gun
'cause I'm a nice kind of hero - MacGyver
I am MacGyver

I play ice hockey, I have high IQ
I speak six languages and I know a few
tricks which will my butt always save
So dear Rube Goldberg,
will you move over now, cause I am MacGyver,
I am MacGyver!

I am McGyver...

Nice job without use of duct tape, AA batteries, or dental floss! BTW, you could do a follow up to this using Magruber from SNL. Just an idea.

Susanna - From watching MacGyver, I learned how to make a geiger counter from an ink pen, a rubber band, and a taco. Fine job. Also, I wrote a song for you about Finland last month. "Finns" to the tune of Jimmy Buffett's "Fins". ;D

Thank you guys :-) MacGyver was always my childhood hero - he was good-looking, resourceful and nice. And he never ran out of wits. I just wonder how many people of our generation went to study sciences or engineering because of MacGyver?

I got a dvd of a season of Macgyver, I use it to wedge in doors (not really). But one time a few years ago when I went streaking I tied my camera to a tree using the marker on the tree and felt like Macgyver then
