Song Parodies -> "If You're Going To Rura Pente"

Original Song Title:

"If You're Going To San Francisco"

Original Performer:

Scott McKenzie

Parody Song Title:

"If You're Going To Rura Pente"

Parody Written by:

Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd

The Lyrics

Again, I'm aware that the original song's title is "San Francisco (Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair)" but the submission form does not accept that length, hence I have adjusted to popular belief. As for "Rura Pente" it is the Klingon penal colony introduced in the sixth movie and then re-pre-introduced in "Enterprise". I thought it appropriate to take this spaced out 60s song and actually write about something far, far out there. ;-)
If you're going to Rura Pente
You're gonna meet some glowers and despair
If you're going to Rura Pente
You're gonna meet no happy campers there

For those who come to Rura Pente
Doin' time will be all spaced out there
In the caves of Rura Pente
Klingon bastards with pain sticks have a lair

All across the planet
They are chopping granite
Convicts in motion

There's The Next Generation
For a time violation
Jean-Luc is preachin'
Wesley is leeching'

When you're forced to Rura Pente
You gonna have to leave your leisure wear
When you come to Rura Pente
You don't stand a Klingon's prayer there

If you come to Rura Pente
Someday you'll be - in crabs - a millionaire

I would say, "This parody is without honor!" But the words "Just kidding!" and "Relax!" do not translate well into Klingonese. Five bowls of gagh.

Liked it a lot. No mention of the shapeshifter though (damn, I feel like a nerd for even mentioning that!). 5 years hard labor.

Don't get most of the references (only ever watched next generation), but this was still really funny anyway. 555
