Security Problems

by Harlock

with apologies to Sir Arthur Sullivan for putting his tune (“A Policeman’s Lot”) to this use

 

When a Klingon’s not engaged with an opponent (an opponent)

Or watching life-blood spilling on the floor (on the floor)

His capacity for innocent enjoyment (‘cent enjoyment)

Disappears and he is quite a crashing bore (crashing bore)

 

So they cloak thier ships and fight the Federation (Federation)

Target planets circling ev’ry yellow sun (yellow sun)

Taking one consideration with another (with another)

A red-shirt’s lot is not a happy one

 

Yes, when phaser-blazing battles have begun (have begun)

A red-shirt’s lot is not a happy one (happy one)

 

Now the Klingons up and joined the Federation (Federation)

Though their ships have all the same crews as before (as before)

So the Council ordered our new generation (generation)

To go out and find new planets to explore (to explore)

 

So we found and fought those sneaky-thief Ferrengi (thief Ferrengi)

Borg, Cardassian, and also Romulan (Romulan)

Taking one consideration with another (with another)

A gold-shirt’s lot is not a happy one

 

Yes, when phaser-blazing battles have begun (have begun)

A gold-shirt’s lot is not a happy one (happy one)
