The Lyrics

Ground control to Captain Kirk Ground control to Captain Kirk
Put your phaser down and get rid of your smirk
(ten)
Ground control (nine) to Mister (eight) Spock (seven...six)
Commencing (five) beaming to the dock (four....three)
(two)Next gen's high ratings (one) made us put our ship in hock (liftoff)

This is ground control to Number One, you've really made the grade!
The old crew all ask what uniforms you wear,
Now you're taking over prime time if you dare

This is Captain Kirk to ground control,
I'll leave them in my dust
I will ram their Enterprise through if I must

I'm here in an aging old tin can, far above the world
Their enterprise is new and there's nothing I can do

Give me warp 3 factor engine room, we'll hit them in the side
Mister Spock says "We will all go out in style"
Tell the world Picard is Gay if they don't know

"Ingine ruem tae Bridge we're meat,
Thae Ingines Cannae taek dis' heet
Cun yee her' mee Bridge cam' een'
Cun yee her' mee Bridge cam' een'
Cun yee her' mee Bridge cam' een'

Good one Laurence. I've always prefered TOS. The others boldly go where everyone has gone before.
