Captain James T. Kirk (to tune of "Grand Ole Duke of York")
Oh, Captain James T. Kirk He had four hundred men He'd beam them up to the Enterprise and down to the planet again! When you're beamed up, you're UP When you're beamed down, you're DOWN But when you're stuck while beam-ing UP you're neither UP nor DOWN! (Repeat at faster tempo each time, last time substitute below) When you're beamed up, you're UP When you're beamed down, you're DOWN But when you wear a RED SHIRT you soon won't be AROUND!
On all refrains: On the word UP, stand UP On the word DOWN, sit DOWN On last refrain: On RED SHIRT, put hands to head in distress On AROUND, throw hands up as if fending off blows, collapse.
Being a Trekkie, I wrote this the first time I head Grand Ole Duke Of York, never knowing other versions existed.
