The Lyrics

I’m Bill Shatner

You know it cuts me like a knife
To be called Captain Kirk for all my life
There’s more to me than the conclusions you draw
That “Halloween” movie used my face for that mask you saw

And did you think this fool could never win?
Well look at me, I'm a’coming back again
I won my emmy for that Denny Crane
And all I did was play myself, while working in another vein

Don't you know I'm Bill Shatner, better than I ever was
If you forget T. J. Hooker, that part where I played “the fuzz”
I'm Bill Shatner after all this time
Was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs and ignored the Directive Prime

I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)

I’m literally getting big
But that new Star Trek, couldn’t get the gig
Played a crazy guy on the Twilight Zone
Those spoken word albums I did shot up the charts like a stone

You know I'm Bill Shatner, people can’t get enough
Don’t forget Rescue 9-1-1, then there’s all that Tek War stuff
I'm Bill Shatner, take me serious
Bet you don’t know James T. Kirk’s middle name is Tiberius?

I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)

You know I'm Bill Shatner, keep my face on TV
Still have that Priceline-dot-com job, lost the show on ABC
I'm Bill Shatner, you can’t get enough
But you prob’ly wouldn’t ever want to see me in the buff

I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)
I’m Bill Shatner (yeah yeah yeah)

Enjoyed this one!...555!!!
(BTW, while doing some parody research, I learned that Kirk's middle initial was originally R and that they came up with Tiberius later on.)

Leo: Thank you. Never knew that about the middle name. Tiberius is cool.
