My Big Fat Starship

Have you seen Star Trek lately? I didn't think so. Not many people are watching Star Trek:Enterprise, the latest series in the franchise. Perhaps the Star Trek folks would have better luck with Star Trek:My Big Fat Starship. Here's a song that truly captures the boldness, the grandeur, the giddy fun of zooming around in outer space.

written by Paul Nordquist + performed by Amy Guskin & Christine Herholz (vocals) and the Zongo Session Players

Oh, I've got a big fat starship
I've got a big fat starship
It's big, it's fat, it's my big fat starship

It's big enough for the four of us
And a dog named Canis, he's coming too
Just a small dog but he'll grow on us
Got a nose for space, and his fur is blue

The engine's powered by confusion
When it clogs, all the windows steam up
We've got a great big five-year mission
To see worlds we could never dream up

Come along with me
Come on, you gotta come with me
Without you, empty space would be so empty
We're gonna paint the sky with stars
In my big fat starship

Oh, I've got a big fat starship
I've got a big fat starship
It's big, it's fat, it's my big fat starship

We'll find a robot in our second week
Sitting on some rock, abandoned
And a nine-year-old genius from Planet Geek
He'll fix the engine when we're stranded

It scarcely matters where we go
As long as our space suits look terrific
And our interest in gorgeous alien guys
Of course that's strictly scientific

Come along with me
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Without you empty space would be so empty
There are worlds to discover, wormholes to wander
Creatures, adventures, and riddles to ponder

Oh, I've got a big fat starship
I've got a big fat starship
It's big, it's fat, it's my big fat starship
Oh, I've got a big fat starship
I've got a big fat starship
It's big, it's fast
It's shiny purple, built to last
Other starships are outclassed
So hoist the star flag up the mast
The galaxy is strange and vast
We've got to go and get there fast
In my big fat starship
