Landing Party

I went on a landing party to a planet with some old friends.
A chance to be the target of some phasor fire again.
When I got to the landing party, knew that I’d get hurt.
No one recognized me; just saw my bright red shirt.

So I’m deep fried now,
I learned my lesson well.
You see the color of your shirt, just may affect your health.

Klingons came from miles around, everyone was there.
Sulu brought his epee; there was danger in the air.
And over by some boulders I saw Captain Kirk.
Doin’ wacky shoulder rolls and takin’ off his shirt.

So I’m deep fried now,
I learned my lesson well.
You see the color of your shirt, just may affect your health.

Logic blah blah blah, logic blah blah blah

Looked through all the old logs, saw then why I came.
I had to face the music; it’d always be the same.
I’d say hello to Uhura, she’d belong to me
If only I weren’t phasor bait, a crimson crash dummy.

So I’m deep fried now, I learned my lesson well.
You see the color of your shirt, just may affect your health.

Logic blah blah blah, logic blah blah blah

Someone opened up a Jeffries tube and out stepped Khan and his brood. Bangin’ heads like a ringin’ a bell and eatin’ all the food.
If you gotta go on landing parties, I got one thing to say
If the Captain sends you planet-side, reserve space in sickbay.

So I’m deep fried now,
I learned my lesson well.
You see the color of your shirt, just may affect your health.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
