The Lyrics

"Star Trek" debuted 40 years ago, in the fall of 1966. "Purple Haze" was recorded at around the same time. No one, as far as I know, has ever linked William Shatner and Jimi Hendrix, both "space cowboys," but hardly the same kind. Although narrated by Captain Kirk, I avoided the temptation to make this a Chris Bodily-style "William Shatner Sings..." piece.
(instrumental opening)

Purple haze, on sensor scan!
Spock, please analzye it, man!
Readings funny, and I don't know why!
For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky!

Purple haze, when we beam down!
Rigel Seven, a danger town!
Traveled here at warp factor three!
Sulu, get us out... of this menagerie!

Help me, Bones!
Help me, Scotty!
Oh, no, no!

(Kirk goes back to his quarters, where a yeoman in a low-cut red uniform is waiting)

Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, yeah!

Purple haze here on my ship!
This just isn't my kind of trip!
Must obey the Directive Prime!
Is this tomorrow, or just an amok time?

(instrumental fadeout)
I don't expect Jimi himself to comment. Why not? Becaues it's not logical. Why not? Because... He's dead, Jimi.

Yea its very good indeed. Don't worry about the 1 votes (something mentioned by Red Ant made me feel much better about 1-voting). Once again this person who voted 1s is too cowardly/weak/ashamed/ugly/arrogant to reveal themselves. I'll award you 555s for your good work and to ease the 1s a bit.
