Meet the Crew

Oh the curve of her cheek is rare
And the sound of her voice makes you just not care
Quality Companion for hire
If you’re knotted she’ll unbind you, if you’re tense she will unwind you
Oh yeah, she knows her stuff about desire.

For a good man he’s awful awful bad
For a bad man he’s awful awful good
But in the black it’s understood
You must fight for ship and crew and you fast learn what to do
When you’ve bitten off a mite more than you should

He can pilot anything that can be flown
And you haven’t seen a thing until you’ve seen him in the zone
Crazy Ivans just for fun
With aplomb and savoir faire he will pluck you from mid air
And blow your mind twice more before he’s done

Well he wasn’t hired on for his brain
No, more for the occasions lettin’ Vera off the chain
Not exactly Mr. Tact
But a demon in a fight and he doesn’t travel light
And it’s good to feel the muscle at your back

She brings the sexy to the engine room
And she’s challengingly perky in the face of certain doom
Cuter than a bug, my, my
When she’s learnin’ you your lesson – s tay away from the Capessan
Cause you know those engines fall clean from the sky

When loyalty and courage are at one
The woman in the leather vest is surely set to stun
I would slowly back away
For she’ll more than test your mettle She has got a score to settle
The Alliance has a major debt to pay

And what are we to make of Shepherd Book
I want to see his service record, yeah I’d like a look
I think he can do more than cook
And I find it passing odd  That a straight up man of God
Would ever need a devastating hook

The Doc of all of them had most to lose
But he’s got a moral compass so he knows which way to choose
Keeping River safe’s his goal
As they dodge and they swerve and get on each other’s nerves
And grief him while he’s patching up their holes

A crazy dancer tallies up the crew
Don’t be on the receiving end of River’s ballet-fu
Her middle name is Death
Gun or fist or knife she will calmly end your life
And do it with a grace that takes your breath

So now you’ve met the crew of Firefly
The Fox execs who cancelled it are surely gonna fry
Years have passed we still ask why
So sing out a mighty curse to ring out across the ‘Verse
For Firefly’s renown will never die.
