BLUE SUN ROOM FILK
A Space Shanty in honor of our own dear Serenity, to the tune of "The Bonnie Ship the Diamond."
CATEGORY: FILK TIMES READ: 1384 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
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!
