And it’s go, boys go, with phasers set to stun
And every mission you’re away could be your final one
And yet you go
Mallory blown to the sky. He tripped upon a rock.
Darnell became a salt lick for the ex-wife of the doc
It’s an honor serving on the starship Enterprise
But if you’re with Kirk in a red shirt, you gamble with your life
Kelso, he was strangled by the Captain’s Number One
Carlisle was killed by Nomad; he’s not the only one
So many perils out in space for Captain and the crew
The odds are high that you could die in shirts of gold or blue.
Kelso killed by magic, with no sympathy at all
Grant stabbed by a Kleegat just for acting mean is all.
We do our jobs, we roll the dice, we go along our way
And hope to God and Starfleet that we live another day
Watson killed by Kryton without a reason why
Leslie Thompson turned to dust, with nae a tear to cry
It seems like the command staff are destined to survive
While we the lower deck unknowns all fight to stay alive
