The Lyrics

In memoriam, James Montgomery Doohan, 1920-2005. A veteran of D-Day while in the Royal Canadian Artillery, the native of Sarnia, Ontario became a "character actor," appearing from 1962 to 1966 on episodes of the Westerns "Bonanza," "Gunsmoke," "The Virginian" and "A Man Called Shenandoah"; the crime dramas "The Fugitive," "The F.B.I." and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."; and the fantasy shows "The Twilight Zone," "The Outer Limits" and "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea." Then "Bonanza" writer Gene Coon called him (as well as stock players Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley) and cast him on a little TV show called "Star Trek." We knew Jimmy Doohan as Montgomery Edward Scott, Chief Engineer of the starship Enterprise in the Original Series, seven movies, archive footage on "Deep Space Nine" and a "farewell" episode on "The Next Generation." The phrase "Beam me up, Scotty" was never spoken by Captain Kirk or any other character, but he has now been beamed up to a place where the engines always run smooth, the Scotch is always smooth, the waistline never grows, and there are no Klingons... or Tribbles.
Once upon a time there was an engineer.
Commander Scott, it was his name I hear.
He had the engines on the Enterprise.
He used dilithium crystals
they made the ship rise.

Scotty says,
"Don't ya tax muh engines!"
Scotty says,
"Ye'll blow 'em all to hell!"
Captain says,
"Gimme power, Scotty
gotta get the ship to warp speed
so it runs so well!"

Good old Scotty!
Good old Scotty!
Good old Scotty!
Good old Scotty!
(repeat 'til fade)

R.I.P. indeed. The appearance in TNG was the Dyson sphere episode I believe

Good parody. The OS for the old Good -n- Plenty commercial was the old railroad song "Casey Jones." Interesting choice to remember a sixties (and beyond) star with a sixties commercial. I myself preferred "Good -n- Fruity" - (and I am proud of myself for having controlled my latent homophobia to admit that - lol!) But seriously, why did anybody eat those licorice pills anyway?? Anyway, good parody. As I have said, Scotty will be missed. 555

DKTOS. Red Ant: I think that was a writer injoke, since living well came close to turning Scotty into a Dyson Sphere himself. :-)

Great Scott! The OS brings so many memories of Saturday morning cartoons! Thanks for the flashback

I could hear James Doohan singing that.
