Good call! Here goes:

Thargoid in interstellar space

I don't do trading, I wage war, my dear
I am a member of the hive
You can see it by the colour of my rays
I'm a Thargoid in interstellar space

<snip>

Ask yourself: Who owns the Ooniverse
Ask yourself: Who owns the Ooniverse
(Oh oh, I'm an alien. I'm a lethal alien)
Ask yourself: Who owns the Ooniverse
(I'm a Thargoid in interstellar space)
Pardon my dense-ness.. I'm loving the lyrics.. but what's the tune?

Wow! That is quite a piece of work. Well done.
Belated thanks.

Quote:
Pull you out of witch space, drop you in to this place
Out here, there is no planet and no sun
I may not win a speed race; that's fine because in this case
I'll kill you with my drones, not with my gun
I like that verse :)


Wrote this one a while ago but didn't get around to posting.
Quite possibly a result of watching too much station traffic when testing rescaling...

Original Song: Radio GaGa by Queen

Quote:
I sit alone, and watch your flight
The only thing, within my sights
And everything, I have to stow
Needs clearance on the radio

You have us all, look at the stars
In the aegis, near yet so far
You make us wait, you make us cry
You make us feel we'd rather die.
Or-bit-al.

You have become, that which annoys
Removing all, the trader's joys
You just don't know, or just don't care
Perhaps because no pilot's there

You take your time, no engine power
You've yet to dock, another hour?
Or-bit-al, Or-bit-al.

All I see is Orbital Shuttle
Orbital oh no
Orbital Shuttle
All I see is Orbital Shuttle
Orbital muddle
Orbital, not you!
Orbital, in the docking queue...

You were not made, to reach the stars
Station bound, for hours and hours
You fly yourself, no pilot dares
Not since the first said, "it took years".

What if you ever, met your end?
Hard to believe, on you we depend
I wonder if someone might miss you
My laser sight has you in visual

You take your time, no engine power
I contemplate, a laser shower
Or-bit-al, Or-bit-al.

All I see is Orbital Shuttle
Orbital oh no
Orbital Shuttle
All I see is Orbital Shuttle
Orbital oh no
Orbital Shuttle
All I see is Orbital Shuttle
Orbital trouble
Orbital, curse you!
In my $@#&ing queue...

Orbital Shuttle
Orbital Shuttle
Orbital Shuttle

You take your time, no engine power
Still yet to dock, station devour
Orbital, Orbital.

Love it! Having done a lot of station loitering myself, I feel your pain!

In that case you should know that there is a [EliteWiki] List of Oolite Songs.



And just for fun, this one is to the tune of "He's got the whole world in his hands", and could probably use some additional verses wink wink nudge nudge saynomore.

"He's got the flight stick in his hand"

He's got the flight stick in his hand
He's got the flight stick in his hand
He's got the flight stick in his hand
He's got the flight stick in his hand

Earning his credits in the lanes
Hunting and trading in the lanes
Flying his space ship in the lanes
With the flight stick in his hand

Docking Computers, not for him
Those are for losers, not for him
Makes those manoeuvres with his hand
He's got the flight stick in his hand

When there are pirates, he will fight
He's not a coward, he will fight
He locks and fires with his hand
He's got the flight stick in his hand

He made a misjump in the end
Outnumbered, outgunned, in the end
He couldn't kill them in the end
With the flight stick in his hand

His ship exploded in deep space
Now he is floating in deep space
Dried and frozen in deep space
Still got the flight stick in his hand

Sorry about that last one. This is to make up for it.
(For those of high density [or low age] this is to the tune of Lola by The Kinks.)

"Cobra"

I got her at Lave Academy
When I finished my training and they issued me
my diploma, D-i-p-l-o-ma

The officer told me: here is your ship
I asked for an Asp but he said all they had
was a Cobra, C-o-b-r- Cobra
Co co co co Cobra


Well, I didn't think she could bring the heat
but when I launched I got pushed back into the seat
of my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra

Well, I was dumb but I soon would see
How she floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee
Oh my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Co co co co Cobra


Well, we flew to Zaonce and to Isinor
Soon my combat rating was Poor
She saved my ass and I saved hers
Cargo bay full of Computers and Furs

Well, I'm no materialistic guy
But there's so many upgrades I want to buy
for my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Co co co co Cobra

Cobra, Co co co co Cobra, Co co co co Cobra


I got in a fight
His status was Clean
He targeted me
I had to defend
I shot at him and he at me

Well, that's not the way that GalCop see
So now I'm a Fugitive and have to flee
In my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra

Trader and Pirate roles reverse
In this mixed up muddled up Ooniverse
Me and my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra


Well, I left Lave just a week before
And I'd never ever killed a Trader before
My Cobra and I are now Kill-On-Sight
We get attacked almost every flight

Well, I'm not really the murderous type
But I'll fight to the death to defend my life
or my Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Co co co co Cobra


Cobra, Co co co co Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Cobra, Co co co co Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Cobra, Co co co co Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
Cobra, Co co co co Cobra, Co co co co Cobra
