A "Firefly" Christmas Filk

"Hark, the hungry Reavers sing

Gnawing bones and sewing skin

Rape to death their chosen prey

Once were men or so they say.

Alliance tell they don't exist

Fairytales to frighten kids

In the Black they have become

Worse than monsters every one

Hark, the hungry Reavers sing

Gory death is all they bring!

When we found that driftin' ship

I knew then what had done this

Thinkin' quick to save my crew

Couldn't tell them what I knew.

When you live life in the Black

You must take what e'er you lack

So a scavengin' we went

Survivin' our whole intent

Hark, the hungry Reavers sing

Gory death is all they bring!

Alliance came an' caught my crew

Handcuffed me an' in a few

Lost the prisoner we found

Pleaded he had gone to ground.

Took him back aboard my boat

Tams were hidden not below

He jumped out an' Harkan cried

In that moment almost died

Hark, the hungry Reavers sing

Gory death is all they bring!

Wasn't mercy that he lived

Broke his neck an' that was it

Saved the purplebelly's life

Freedom was the only prize

Took my cargo left my crew

Watched the wreck as it blew

Couldn't let us profit none

Without a word of thanks was gone

Hark, the hungry Reavers sing

Gory death is all they bring!"
