After "I Shipped, d'you see, in a Revenue Sloop" (hornpipe) from Ruddigore
by Gilbert and Sullivan.
A deserter now, I got mixed up
In other people's wars
I was running contraband
Just for fun, you understand
My hotshot flying gave them pause
My flying gave them pause
When Andromeda invaded a new tactic was required
I assumed a bogus rank
Then I boarded Liberator
Met my crewmates sometime later
Klegg's troops we did outflank, don't you think?
Klegg's troops we did outflank.
Now I fly this spacecraft so superb
Across the gal-a-xee
No ship can emulate her
And her autonavigator
Is great for handbrake turns, happily
Is great for handbrake turns
At times upon the flight deck we've a frank exchange of views
You'd enjoy the repartee
But when Avon's calibrating
And when Vila's irritating
Why, Zen responds to me, don't you see, Zen responds to me.
