The Lyrics

I guess that it probably takes a hardcore Star Trek fan to really recognise and apprechiate the inside jokes and references in this song. So yes, itīs meant for them/us, primarily. Also, itīs meant to be built like one of those classic sf-short novels with a twist towards the end. Or in this case, in the third verse. (Thanx to Emma Saunders over at Sev Space for proofreading).
I was waiting ― time in a forward 10
My boss was Captain Picard
He told me several times that he didnīt like it when
I probed 4 Dataīs mileage card

Seems that I was busy doing something close 2 service
Indifferent, like the way I broom
Thatīs when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She came out from the menīs room, menīs room

She waved a raspberry Batleth
The kind U seen, well, never before
Raspberry Batleth
And caught on its edge U saw intestines and gore
Raspberry Batleth
I wanna serve her

Green like I was, I had the nerve 2 ask her
If she planned 2 cut me down as well
And, look here, she throw me on my back on the floor
And we started wrestling
2 the sound of her rebel yell

I said, now overkill ways always turn me on
And itīs something ībout the way that U scream
She wanted 2 mate
And I could tell when she bit me
She knew how 2 make me beam

She waved a raspberry Batleth
The kind U seen, well, never before
Raspberry Batleth
And caught on its edge U saw intestines and gore
Raspberry Batleth
I had 2 serve her

Hearts pound so red when we engaged on stage
And the Con-visitors wandered ībout 2 the bar
Honour-guests saw that our love was strong
Revealed like a battle scar

Listen, they say first contact is decisive
And I tell U, if I had the chance 2 cling on 2 her again
I would have made it so, enabled thrusters, go
4 a Klingon fine as she was then

Raspberry Batleth
The kind U seen, well, never before
Raspberry Batleth
And caught on its edge U saw intestines and gore
Raspberry Batleth
Qīpla... Qīpla... Qīpla, I love her

Whoever was first to vote on this piece, and gave you 1/1/1, is, as the Klingons say, WITHOUT HONOR!
