I was stranded on a planet, just me and Spock
We met a nasty, Nazi alien who locked our asses up
We found a hunk of crystal and a metal piece of bed
We made a laser phaser gun and shot him in the head

(bust a move tark)

I was standing on the bridge, when Sulu came to me
His eyes were full of tears, he said "Captain, can't you see?"
"The ship is gonna blow! Do something, I beseech!"
I grabbed the tribble and some chewing gum
And stopped the warp core breach

And I say "Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish."
That's the way we do things, lad, we're making shit up as we wish.
The Klingons and the Romulans, pose no threat to us,
'Cause if we find we're in a bind, we just make some shit up."

Although he's just a child, and some think him a twit
Wesley is the master when it comes to making up some shit
He's the guy you want with you when you go out in space
Now if only he could beam those pimples off his face

And if you're at a party on the Starship Enterprise
And the karaoke player just plain old up and dies
Set up a neutrino field inside a can of peas
Hold on to Geordie's visor and sing into Data's knees

And I say "Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish."
That's the way we do things, lad, we're making shit up as we wish.
The Klingons and the Romulans, pose no threat to us,
'Cause if we find we're in a bind, we just make some shit up."

Sisko's on a mission to go no bloody place
He loiters on a space station above Bajoran space
A wormhole'd opened up and now they come from near and far
We'll keep the booze but please send back the fuckin' Jem'Hadar

And what is with the Klingons? Remembering the day
They looked like Puerto Rican's and they dressed in gold lamé
Now they look like heavy metal rockers from the dead
With leather pants and frizzy hair and lobsters on their heads

And I say "Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish."
That's the way we do things, lad, we're making shit up as we wish.
The Klingons and the Romulans, pose no threat to us,
'Cause if we find we're in a bind, we just make some shit up."

Well I was stuck on voyager, pounding on the door
When suddenly it dawned on me, I've seen this show before
Perhaps I'm in a warp bubble and slightly out of phase
'Cause it was way back in the sixties when they called it 'Lost in Space'

We're looking for a way to make the ratings soar
So we orchestrated an encounter with the Borg
Normally you'd think that that would get us into shit
But this one has a smashing ass and a lovely set of tits

And I say "Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish."
That's the way we do things, lad, we're making shit up as we wish.
The Klingons and the Romulans, pose no threat to us,
'Cause if we find we're in a bind we're in a bind
We're totally screwed, but never mind
We'll pull something out of our behind...
We just make some shit up

    General Comment* - not sure.
    ** - unsure of spelling. (lamey? lamay? lamaise?)

    forgive my terminology, i'm not big on star trek.

    General CommentIt's a "nuetrino field" that's set up inside the can of peas. And I think it's lamaise. Not sure, though.

    General CommentInstead of Bust a move, tock, it should be "Bust a move, Doc!" As in Dr. McCoy.

    Also . . . .

    Although he's just a child, and SOME THINK HIM a twit.

    They looked like Puerto Ricans and they dressed in gold lamé.

    General Commenti think it's 'tark', because here: startrek.com/library/…
    tark is listed as a dancer.

    General Commentbest choras ever "bounce a gravaiton partical beam off the main deflector dish"
    does anybody here have a guess as to what that would do?
    i know a graviton partical beam is (fancy talk for tractor beam) but i'm not sure what bouncing it off the main deflector dish would accomplish.

    General CommentThe spelling is "neutrino." A neutrino is a subatomic particle. It is a WIMP (Weakly Interfering Massive Particle) and has been a candidate for a constituent of dark matter.

    Bouncing a graviton (theoretical particle which is said to transmit the force of gravity). So "bouncing" or redirecting a previously existing stream of particles would alter gravity fields in the vicinity. Sounds useful to me.

    gandalfe is correct, the proper spelling is " lamé ." which is actually not a Star Trek universe term. It refers to a jacket primarily made of metallic fibers, for example those used in the sport of fencing.

    It should be Bajoran space.
