We are Red Shirts

We are Red Shirts, cannon fodder for a TV crack

They kill us for the drama, no hope to strike back

From the Federation’s ships to every ugly alien shore

We will get killed and they keep asking more.

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

We’re gonna die

Running to the front, phaser at the ready

Climbing on the engines, old wrench steady

Always prepared to execute captain’s will

Peace achieved when finally lie still

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Get ready to die

Bottom of the line in Academy time

No questions asked for the first line

Guinea pigs for alien viruses

Test subject for doctor’s mixtures

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

We’re gonna die

Explosion on bridge four, it’s Klingon fire

Decompression on hangar’s deck, it’s dire

Screenwriters are first class sadist, we can tell for sure

Directors hate us, can’t find a cure

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Red Shirt

Get ready to die
