The Lyrics

Based on "Firefly" and "Serenity", the 'western in space' TV show and movie created by Joss Whedon.
That's odd; it starts with The Train Job
Jayne's a slob, and Oh, my God!
All the girls are smoking hot!
(I'll be in my bunk)
I am a floating leaf; listen to the wind swirl
'Verse serves its own needs regardless of your own needs
Fly us, Mister Wash, please; Jayne, go sit down
River's been delivered in a coffin-sized airtight
Why do we conspire? The Alliance is engaged
In a government desire to control your life!

Miranda's where we're going in a fever
With the Reavers breathing down our necks
Creeping by on minimal power; keep fingers crossed
Look at all those ships! Gor! Ram!
Uh, oh! Here we go! Population's littering
The city streets. Move your feet, deadbeat!
'Verse serves its own needs, Reavers hear your heartbeat
Parody the Rapture and the Armageddon
Out! Of! Here!
We're vitriolic, hyperbolic, 15% alcoholic
Heroes, damn big!

It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
And I feel fine!

Simon Tam, he's a surgeon; got a lot of book-learnin'
Don't know how to talk to girls, listens to the wind swirl
Here's a guy in uniform, a Book-burning black man
In every manner reprobate, working for the police-state
In a battle in a valley, beat down, beat down!
Watching bombs crush, crush; uh, oh! This means
No staff golden calf; a renegade spacecraft
Turning our misfortune into private enterprise
Offer me a bouty, offer me protection
I despise your lies!

It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
And I feel fine!

The other night we tripped across cargo that we couldn't toss
Zoe had to take a loss; WHAT THE HELL, JOSS?
Running from mobsters; River kills the monsters
Kiss the girl, oh damn, special Hell, BOOM!
We're idiotic histrionic big damn heroes!
Right? Right!

It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
And I feel fine!

It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
And I feel fine!

It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
It's the end of the 'Verse as we know it (God, oh, God, we're going to die!)
And I feel fine!
This song is available on the album "Geek Mythology" by Eben Brooks. It is also available for digital download. Lyrics Copyright © 2009 by Eben Brooks.

This is probably one of the ten most difficult (well known) songs to parody, so anyone who can do so much as a hack job on it would deserve a big thumbs up. And of course, you did a terrific job on it. A most auspicious debut

Just clicked on your links -- Are these songs on "Geek Mythology" song parodies? Do you actually make a living doing song parodies?

^ as CML said this song is extremely difficult to parody and you pulled it off very well! kudos! 5's
P.S. the original song is from the 1980s not the 2000s

Having parodied this beast myself on this very site in the past, I KNOW how tough this one is - hope you stocked up on headache pills in advance ;^) And what a brilliant job you made of it too. Don't know much about either of the two shows referenced, but that didn't matter as the lines were sharp and funny enough to stand alone without that knowledge. Anything less than a 555 would just be mean!
