Hoshi and the Slug

to the tune of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" by the Beatles


Picture yourself on the bridge of a starship
With alien doctors and Vulcans so snide
Suddenly something is brought into sickbay
A life-form that's orange and slithe
Watch as it oozes around in its cage
Xenon sunbathing all day
Somebody thinks this can pass for a plot but it's dumb
(dumb, dumb, dumb)

Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Ahhhhh.......

Picture yourself on an alien vessel
You don't know their language, you think you might die
All of their bodies are hung from the ceiling
And something is sucking them dry
Conduits carrying something that's green
Gurgling over your head
Maybe you should have decided to teach after all
(dumb, dumb, dumb)

Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Ahhhhh.......

Picture your slug on the face of a planet
You finally decide that it's fun in the sky
Enterprise plots take a while to get started
But this one, it just wouldn't fly
(dumb, dumb, dumb)

Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Hoshi and the slug and violence
Ahhhhh.......
