Stardate 42695.3 was a pretty big day for me
I was given my first command
But it turned out to be more difficult then I'd planned

So I went to Riker and said "What if I fail?
What if I freeze up with a Borg on our tail?
What if the choice I make is wrong?"

And Riker said to me "Wesley, give me break
It's arrogant to think you'll never make a mistake
But when you're in that position
You only have to ask yourself one question"

Oh, what would Captain Picard do?
Oh, what would Captain Picard do?

He'd ensure the safety of his ship and his crew
And then complete the mission
And make himself a better person
Bring peace to the galaxy
And do it for free

Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do
Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do

I just woke up after three centuries
And my first thought was of money
Not that my family was gone

But this bald guy in a jumpsuit said to me
That they'd abolished currency
Everything I'd worked for was gone
Yeah, there was nothing to withdraw

I said to him "What do you invest in
If you don't have big corporations?"
He said "We invest in ourselves"
And maybe I should try that out for myself

Because that's what Captain Picard would do
Yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do

He'd ensure the safety of his ship and his crew
And then complete the mission
And make himself a better person
Bring peace to the galaxy
And he'd do it for free

Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do
Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do

Remember when he told us to remove the saucer section
Even though we were at warp nine, there was no objection

And yeah we could have killed the Borg using Hugh
But we agreed with the Captain it was the wrong thing to do

And I'd rather follow Dixon Hill, Private Detective
Than observe some outmoded and obscure prime directive

And even after he was tortured for forty days and nights
He told that Cardassian that there were still four lights

And yeah when you're confused and the choice is too hard
Just think of Captain Picard
Just think of Captain Picard

Think what would Captain Picard do?
Yeah, what would Captain Picard do?

He'd save the galaxy
And he'd do it for free
He'd protect the whole world
And he'd still get the girl
And he'd save the federation
And earn the Klingon's admiration

Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do
Oh yeah, that's what Captain Picard would do
