Nathan Naimark is an unreleased song by Tally Hall about contest-winner Nathan Naimark.

A contest was held by Tally Hall in early 2011, where the winner would receive their own personalised theme song. Nathan Naimark was announced as the winner on the 24th of June 2011[1][2]

The song can be heard on Hidden In The Sand's Soundcloud,[3] or tumblr page[4]

The unofficial artwork, that has gone hand-in-hand with the song, was made by Tony Patryn[5]

Nathan himself was just a high school student when he won the contest[6] and in 2017 he appeared on NPR's 'This That Or The Other', where he talked about his theme song "It was a contest. So it was a promotion for their album, which came out a couple years ago. It's a band called Tally Hall, which, unfortunately, doesn't exist anymore. Yeah. But they wrote this song. And now it just follows me around." The host, Ophira Eisenberg, quips that the song is very similar to the theme from "The Flintstones".[7] Nathan went on to the final round of the show, but unfortunately, did not win.[8]


Lyrics[edit]

These are not official. Words surrounded by brackets [] are uncertain.

Nathan
Nathan Naimark
Loves to laugh and cavort with his friends
Lives in Pheonix
Where he makes his home
School for the arts he attends

Nathan
Nathan Naimark
He can shoot lazer beams from his groin (magical groin)
He's a racist (wait!)
Wait that's someone else

Nathan we hope you'll join in going
Ooh la la la
He's won our grand prize
Ooh la la la
All of his friends are nice guys
Ooh la la la
He's light in the dark
Nathan
Nathan Naimark

Hurray for
Nathan Naimark (hurray-mark)
He's the guy that the song is about (magical groin)
Loves the theatre
Lives to act and sing (la la la la la la la)

Nathan we want to shout
Ooh la la la
He's won our grand prize
Ooh la la la
He's twice his own size
Ooh la la la
He's light in the dark
Nathan
Nathan Naimark

Ooh la la la
And we have met his grandma
Ooh la la la
It was in Texarkana
Ooh la la la
We had a picnic in the park
With grandma
Grandma Naimark
Mother of Nancy
Nancy Naimark
Mother of Nathan [Peapop] Naimark
Mother of none
