Captain James T. Kirk (to tune of "Grand Ole Duke of York") Song

 

Lyrics

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!

Action

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.

CommentBeing a Trekkie, I wrote this the first time I head Grand Ole Duke Of York, never knowing other versions existed.
