The Lyrics

#28 in the series. This was in several ways inspired by Matthias' idea to another White Album song about the Heart of Gold. Enjoy everybody! Almost there!
Zaphod, Zaphod,
Zaphod, Zaphod
Zaphod’s a naughty boy, Zaphod he stole a toy
Directions said to ‘read me’, he didn’t, leaving speedy
Now he’s queasy,
He is queasy.
Ev'rybody's got something to ride, so he ‘borrowed’ this spaceship.

The Heart made of Gold, improbably flies
It probably flies impossibly bold
It’s Zaphod’s – hot rod,
Come on get Trillian, come on you silly man.
Come on get Ford and Arthur, won’t even have to park her
Ship is smarter,
Ship is smarter.
Ed’s annoying, his voice is inside, get on driving this spaceship, yeah

You might be a couch, and you might be some string
You’re normalizing, and you’re head might be ouch
So Zaphod, Zaphod
Marvin is such a droid, Marvin you should avoid.
Come on let’s make a tea now, come on the ship can freeze now
Move it, PLEASE now,
move it, PLEASE NOW
Ev'rybody is helping him hide right inside of his spaceship.


Zaphod, Zaphod, Zaphod, Zaphod, Zaphod, Zaphod…

I'll totally accept this in replacement for "Zaphod's Stolen Ship" to "Mother Nature's Son". This was brilliant and really gave you a lot more to work with than that song would have. "Zaphod" to "Come On" was brilliant and I loved the line about them turning into a couch and string (although in the book I think they did stranger things... If I do recall) it brought great images from the movie!

TOS is soo spaced, it fits Zaphod perfectly!

This is probably one of my favorites from the project for the zaniness of TOS. Thanks again Matt and Peter for ALL the support and great comments. Matt, I'm glad you accept this one in the other's absence.
