Big Damn Heroes © 2007 Emerald Rose


River please don’t kill me with your brain
I know that you’re insane
But still you’re smarter than your brother
Can’t seem to find himself a lover
Can’t even get into Kaylee’s jumpsuit
Got the personality of a breadfruit
River please don’t kill me with your brain

Mal Reynolds, please don’t fling me through your ship
That’s such a painful trip
I’m sorry if I said something wrong
Didn’t know your kick was so strong
Didn’t know I could push you so far, heck,
This kinda thing never happens on Star Trek
Reynolds, please don’t fling me through your ship

(chorus)
Oh, Firefly keep flyin’
Misbehave and keep on tryin’
For another chance to be
Those big damn heroes of Serenity


Jayne, please don’t shoot me with that gun
I know that you’re the one
Who set the cops on Simon and River
Too dumb to think they’d never deliver
Still in Canton they think you’re a hunk
We know where you’ll be – in your bunk
Jayne, please don’t shoot me with your gun

Kaylee, please don’t kill me with your smile
You’re such a flower child
Inara’s the beauty but you got the heart
Givin’ your love to each engine part
You’re the mechanic we all want to meet
Even Jubal Early thinks you’re sweet
Kaylee, please don’t kill me with your smile

(chorus)

 

Oh Shepherd please don’t whack me with your book
You got that priestly look
Sure know a hell of a lot about guns
Don’t think you been hangin’ out with nuns
Nice try keeping River in line
Shame your hair looks like ol’ Einstein’s
Shepherd please don’t whack me with your book

Wash, please don’t blind me with your shirt
We know who wears the skirt
With you and Zoe, she got the balls
Backed ol’ Niska into the wall
Still, you ain’t no wuss as a pilot, just
Click, click, click and you’re ready to style it
Wash, please don’t blind me with your shirt

(chorus)
