He wrote about spaceships and shepherds and whores,
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for.
Fox cancelled his program, but that was their loss--
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joss!
Joss saw the viewers' hearts breakin',
He heard the Browncoats' lament,
He saw Fox management takin',
His show in a way that made no sense.
(He said) "You can't do that to my program,
Can't grind it under your heel."
So he took all his cast, and now at last,
They've landed a Big Damn Movie deal!
Now, here is what separates Firefly
From other shows you're likely to see:
It's meaningful and witty, and the setting's really gritty,
And the theme song's about Serenity.
It's a little like a western, (hyah!)
And a little like X-Files,
It's better than Trek, and it's funnier than Shrek,
And it beats out Andromeda by miles!
FIDDLE AND BLUES GUITAR BREAK
Now here is what separates Whedon,
From writers who slave in the core:
The man they call Joss, well, he said to Fox,
"I'm going where no show has gone before."
He told us about reavers,
He told us about sin,
He took us to the black, and we ain't comin' back,
'till all those crazy Browncoats rise again!
