Dr. Demento – Star' Trekkin lyrics

Star Trekkin', across the universe
On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
Star Trekkin', across the universe,
Boldly going forward, 'cause we can't find reverse.

Lt. Uhura, report!

Uhura:
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow,
Starboard bow.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow, Jim.

Analysis, Mr. Spock!

Spock:
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it,
Not as we know it.
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it, Captain.

Uhura:
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow,
Starboard bow.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow, Jim.

Star Trekkin', across the universe,
On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
Star Trekkin', across the universe,
Boldly going forward, still can't find reverse.

Medical update, Doctor Mccoy

Mccoy:
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim.
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim, Dead.

Spock:
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it,
Not as we know it.
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it, Captain.

Uhura:
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow,
Starboard bow.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow, Jim!

Starship Captain, James T. Kirk

Kirk:
Ah! We come in peace, shoot to kill,
Shoot to kill,
Shoot to kill.
We come in peace, shoot to kill,
Shoot to kill, men

Mccoy:
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim.
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
Dead, Jim, Dead.

Spock:
Well, it's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it,
Not as we know it.
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it, Captain.

Uhura:
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow,
Starboard bow.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Scrape them off, Jim!

Star Trekkin', across the universe,
On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk!
Star Trekkin', across the universe,
Boldly going forward, and things are getting worse!

Engine Room, Mister Scott

Scotty:
Ye canna change the laws of physics,
Laws of physics,
Laws of physics!
Ye canna change the laws of physics,
Laws of physics, Jim.

Kirk:
Ah, we come in peace, shoot to kill,
Shoot to kill,
Shoot to kill!
We come in peace, shoot to kill,
Scotty, beam me up!

Mccoy:
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim!
Dead, Jim!
Dead, Jim!
It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim!
Dead, Jim, Dead!

Spock:
Well, it's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it,
Not as we know it.
It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
Not as we know it, Captain.

Uhura:
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow,
Starboard bow.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
Starboard bow, Jim!

Scotty: Ye canna change the script, Jim! Up ta you, Jimmy!

Mccoy: It's worse than that, it's physics, Jim!

Kirk: Bridge to engine room, warp factor nine!

Scotty: Ach! If I give 'er any more she'll blow, Captain!

Boom

Star Trekkin', across the universe,
On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
Star Trekkin', across the universe,
Boldly going forward, still can't find reverse.

Star Trekkin', across the universe,
On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
Star Trekkin', across the universe,
Boldly going forward, still can't find reverse.

    I feel as if this song has an incredibly spiritual, important meaning. It talks and addresses the fact that during the tips and turns of life, you must improvise and keep going forward! This is quite possibly one of the most important songs in the history of the human race, if I'm being honest. Its stuck in my head 24/7 and is a constant encouragement for me. Though the present times music is pretty terrible, I believe this song can inspire and help young ones to be creative. Though this is a few years old, it continues inspiring me and helping me through rough times. Scotty helps people realize saying the same thing every time something happens doesn't really get you anywhere, Spock helps you realize how vast everything is, Kirk lets you know that sometimes white lies make everyone feel a little better, Mccoy says how sometimes you need to let people know the absolute truth, and I dont really know about Uhara.

    Sometimes not knowing where you're going is better than knowing exactly. Lets say when you were 13 you made up your mind that you were going to be a scientist. If that was your main focus for years upon years, even if when you turned 23 you had no interest in science whatsoever you would still have to persevere since you've already invested so much time into it!
