The Firefly Serenity

A Space Shanty in honor of our own dear Serenity, to the tune of "The Bonnie Ship the Diamond."


CATEGORY: FILK    TIMES READ: 2549    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

Serenity's a ship, my boys

For the border worlds she's bound

With all her shiny crew aboard

And her holds all loaded down

Captain Reynolds gives the order

To sail the whole 'verse wide

Where the sun it never sets, my boys

And darkness fills the sky

CHORUS

And it's cheer up my lads

Let your faith never lack

For the Firefly Serenity

Goes sailin' through the black

We'll land upon Persephone

Our goods there for to fence

And if today's our lucky day

There a new job to commence

And if instead we run afoul

Of some who'd do us harm

We'll fight like hell to save our own

Thankin' God we travel armed

Here's a health to the Independents

Likewise to the man called Jayne

Here's a health to those who've gone afore

And to those what still remain

We wear the pistols at our sides

And the long coats of the brown

From the shining chrome of Ariel

To the docks at old Eavesdown

Now we'll not bide long planetside

'Fore the old girl's gone again

Our home's out there among the stars

Where all the planets spin

And if you ask us why we go

Far beyond the reach of wave

It's not just for the money, boys—

We aim to misbehave!
