The Lyrics

On the planet, the hostile planet,
The Redshirts died tonight.
Rocks exploded, shuttles imploded,
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS
Theyallaredead, theyallaredead, theyallaredead, theyallaredead.
Theyallaredead, theyallaredead, theyallaredead, theyallaredead.

Near the Horta, the mighty Horta,
The Redshirts died tonight.
Hear their screaming, they won't be beaming.
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS

In the sickbay, the quiet sickbay,
The Redshirts died tonight.
See them raving, McCoy can't save 'em.
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS

Near the engine, the mighty engine,
The Redshirts died tonight.
It's overheating, the crew's retreating,
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS

By the Vulcan, the stoic Vulcan,
The Redshirts died tonight.
Disintegrating is "Fascinating,"
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS

Hush my darling, don't cry my darling,
The Redshirts died tonight.
They're only extras, they're not important.
The Redshirts died tonight.

CHORUS

Don the Trekkie - October 19, 2008 - Report this comment
This song has an inordinate number of choruses (you should have done the "we-e-e aiyee! we're toast to-day!") Still, the five you did were "intriguing, Captain"
