By the way, inability to dock seems to be a recurring theme in your covers. You know you can take courses at Lave Academy, right?
I think it's just a phase, like my run of trumble related songs on the previous page :P

Quote:
Oh please do a really good White & Nerdy. (Doesn't necessarily have to be Redspear. Anyone. Please. How about Green & Slimy :shock: )
A request eh? :wink:

Green & Slimy could be good (and I may come back to that) but I here's a quick pass (first verse only) from another angle...
Quote:
See me patrollin'
The system
They know that fugitives best be wary

Fugitives best be wary
I'm issuin' a disciplinary
So hear this cautionary
Eject quick or it'll get scary
My buddies cruise in -
Formation
Ain't no trader convoy so you'd best be wary
Fugitives best be wary
I'm issuin' a disciplinary
Grabbin' you by the short and curlies
Police ship but fightin' dirty

See criminals think they see a clown
But bud I'm the sheriff in this here town
Given plenty of em good reason to frown
When I bust em up knock their two shields down
Faster than you in my interceptor
Now I'm launching I'm gonna best ya,
Station warning should have left ya
Reaching your hand for the injectors
Fire a missile at me don't be funny
Got E.C.M. cos I ain't no dummy
GalCop they ain't short of money
Before I'm done you'll cry for mommy
My lasers of course they're military
With a recharge rate that's exemplary
Cryo unit too in case of any
Confiscated shipments of Ben & Jerry
Assassins I take down for fun
Pirates too but no hired gun
Fugitive your days are done
Maybe now you wish you'd tried a milk run
The aegis is a place where we have rules
Try it on and I'll have to take you to school
Shoot the bouy like you're some crazy ass fool
Best eject real quick hope you like prison food
Bad news: it's mostly gruel

Nice one. Here is a stab at the middle verse for G&S. Altho it has more hunter references than frog references in it.


Pitching and rolling, evading
They all seem confused because I'm green and slimy

Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
All because I'm green and slimy

My lasers so hot, they're glowing
They all flee away, although I'm green and slimy

Even though I'm green and slimy
Even though I'm green and slimy
Although I'm green and slimy
Really, really green and slimy


They say it ain't easy being green
But whoever says that has never seen
a frog killing pirates. I keep a keen
and watchful eye on my scanner screen

Now flying a new ship, it's much bolder
Next to my old crappy Cobra
Could barely keep up with a Boa
Bored this frog into a coma

Got my new ship totally pimped out
Boosted shields, military lasers
Injectors so I keep up in chases
This ship and I will be going places

Shields are charged all to the maximum
Got missiles armed for they ask for some
Once they see my sweet moves they eject or run
I scoop up their escape pods and I'm having fun

Frogs, we are the strongest race (race)
Can't begin to even count the ways (ways)
You will find our kind all over space (space)
We come in colours you'll be amazed

Lurking at the buoy of my favourite system
Vipers on patrol, when I talk they listen
Pirates jumping in, I'm ready to hit them
Stripping their shields, keeping up the rhythm
(and I never miss them)

Pitching and rolling, evading
They all seem confused because I'm green and slimy

Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy

My lasers so hot, they're smoking
They all flee away, although I'm green and slimy

Even though I'm green and slimy
Even though I'm green and slimy
Although I'm green and slimy
Really, really green and slimy


I've been hunting and fighting pirate
ships. No I never get tired
Keeping count on the missiles they fired
My ECM system easily rids them

Dock at the station to fill up on witch space fuel
Don't care about the docking queue
Auto-save just in case and with no further ado
Launch and make my way to the witch point buoy

I make a living killing pirates
They pop up on my screen, their ships will fall
When they can not flee I get them all
Combat pretty decent for a frog

Yo, I got myself a fast Asp
Military lasers fore and aft
Pirates try to flee, I just laugh
Pop, pop, they won't escape me, that easy

I'm slimy in the extreme
You won't believe how green
I am a young frog, a strong frog,
Strongest you've ever seen

Keep my weapons hot, keep my missiles armed
When you see this frog, better be alarmed
Bounties on fugitive and offendaire
Gonna make me a millionaire


Pitching and rolling, evading
They all seem confused because I'm green and slimy

Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy
Just because I'm green and slimy

My lasers so hot, they're smoking
They all flee away, although I'm green and slimy

Even though I'm green and slimy
Even though I'm green and slimy
I know I'm green and slimy
Look at me, I'm green and slimy

The missing verse from my version...
Quote:
Yo smuggler with your narcotics
Fight with me you'll think I'm psychotic
Make all your moves look robotic
Cos first I lock with my target and then I drop it.
Or maybe it's slaves not drug running
Pretty soon for you I'll be gunning
Bringing the pain by the tonnage
Faster than those dudes in that film cool runnings.
I see you thinkin' of droppin that mine.
But I'll be out of range then back in no time
Makin sure you pay for all of your crimes
Cos I clean up perps and on pirates I dine
My shields are boosted with high technology
It's way too late for your apology
Don't need no degree in criminology
Schoolin' I got from Judge Dredd anthology
Even thargoids, they know my name
Cos I take em down when they're playing their game
Not for the money and not for the fame
But when it comes to justice I'm insane
Fugitive or offender can't run for long
No need to be in MENSA to see you wrong
Gonna catch ya and end ya drop ya like king Kong
Cos my ships pumped up more than Lance Armstrong

And now the story of a famous ship design by rock behemoths Deep Space Turtle...

Quote:
We all drank lots of cointreau
Under pressure of a deadline
To break records with a design
Yeah we didn't have much time
Front zapper, engine covers
Faster than the speed of sound
When some stupid son of a gun
Turned the place upside down

"We'll make it...
Go underwater,
A design we should try
It'll go underwater"

We tore down the engine house
Some cried with an awful sound
Power cords were fitted in and out
Replacing all we found
Once we all were sober
We thought we had won the race
The old ship was gutted out
A new Moray stood in its place

And now it...
Goes underwater
Flies in with a dive
Goes underwater

We covered up promised not to tell
We were twenty lobsters there
But with the Marine Trench Execs just outside
Expenses they like to spare
With a few test flights, and congrats said
We didn't need to sweat
No Moray could be better equipped
If you fly one you'll never forget

Because it...
Goes underwater, and flies in the sky
Goes underwater

Another rock classic from Acey Spacey (...sorry :oops: )

Original Song: Back in Black by AC/DC
Quote:
Under attack I take the flack
Thargoids real strong I'm gonna hit back
Yes I am
No truce hit the juice
That's got me injectin' out
Then I let the lasers fly ain't me that's gonna die
No need rehearse cause I'm always sly
A feline strives, cat's eyes
Chasin' every one of 'em until they've died

Cause I'm back
Stripes are black
On my back
Cos I'm a cat
I'm a ca-aa-aa-at, ca-aa-aa-at
It's a cat attack
Yes a cat attack

Back on attack and I'm hittting back
Number one with a laser as a shot I'm crack
Yes I am
I got fangs, like to hang
In an anarchy with some hardheads at hand
Cause a lack of attack, is just terribly wack
Don't wanna 'nother tail I got one on my back
Some truckers say how, clever trading will pay
They should keep their mouths shut and get out of my way

Cause I'm back
Stripes are black
On my back
Cos I'm a cat
I'm a ca-aa-aa-at, ca-aa-aa-at
It's a cat attack
Yes a cat attack

Stripes are black on my back
Stripes are black on my back
I'm a ca-aa-aa-at ca-aa-aa-at
It's a cat attack
Yes a cat attack

Original Song: Living in America by James Brown
Quote:
Yeah, uh! Get up now! Ow! Knock out this!

Super pay days, post to post, reputation in the air
With an intergalactic payload, just make a real good deal
That's the appeal

When theres no constellation-that's too far.
And somewhere on the way, you might find out who they are.

Flyin' with a passenger-fly this guy, station to station
Flyin' with a passenger-contraband, assassin batin'
Flyin' with a passenger-got to have a destination

Dock my soul

Close hatch, lean back, many jumps so watch your back
All so good to go, keep on docking true, your pitch & roll goal
All those liners, they don't make, no good taxi, but I'll ship y'all

You might pick up a docking fine
Might find they change their mind
But ya gotta get them there on time

Flyin' with a passenger-fly this guy, station to station
Flyin' with a passenger-contraband, assassin batin'
Flyin' with a passenger-got to have a destination

I fly with a passenger, help me out,
But why fly with a passenger?
Wait a minute
You may not be thinking no passenger planned
But you might scoop one anyway
Into one of those old docking bays
There's froggies green (froggies green), feline kitty (feline kitty), lizards (lizards), them birds some days (them birds some days),
Rodents tricky (rodents tricky), lobsters nippy (lobsters nippy), insects may (insects may), WHOEVER WANTS TO PAY!

Flyin' with a passenger-hit me
Flyin' with a passenger-yeah,
I fly in and out
Flyin' with a passenger

I fly with a passenger-deadlines, gonna be on time, when
I fly with a passenger-hey
I know what it means, I'm

Flyin' with a passenger...
Flyin' with a passenger- hit me now, fly this guy, station to station
Flyin' with a passenger
Flyin' with a passenger-it pays good!

The King of Pitch and Roll returns (Elvis, not me :P ) with a version of 'Always on my Mind'.
Quote:
They say I'm not elite; true
Fight I would if I could have
They say I couldn't accrue
Credits often as I should have
Bounty brings kudos from combats won
I just never crossed the line

I could always use a mine
I could always use a mine

Trading I didn't review
I chose only, only wines
When I guess highs could've sold to
Make you happy blow your mind
If I treat slaves as second best
Would I be sorry all the time

I could always turn to crime
I could always turn to crime

Help me, help me get those shipments in on time
Give me, brand new Fer de Lance
To stop me turn to crime, turn to crime

Assassins I could have hit and run
If I ever had the guile

I would always rather hide
Corp'rate miner more my style
Corp'rate miner more my style...

So many songs, and I've been away for them all. But I had to insert this one for Ranthe and his Boa

edit: before I do the wrong thing, I think Ranthe flies an Anaconda, oops..
I'll rework the lyrics somewhat, for both Boa and Anaconda. Stay tuned :roll: [groan]
edit: and done

Barely Idle - Got an Anaconda

Have I told you
Lately that I love you
If I didn't, 'Annie
You see, I'm so sorry
Didn't I fill out your massive hold
With these illegal arms
Well, if I did, oh baby
Well, I'm so sorry
When I realized that you need guns too
I regret my choice not fittin' mils to you

"Look there's an Anaconda"
Have mercy
"Ahoy there Anaconda, mate" (have mercy)
"Give up now Anaconda" (have mercy)
"No chance you Anaconda"
Make it on through for you somehow (Have mercy, pirates)
Wish you were a Boa, babe ("Yeah right, a stupid Boa")
Woop! Woop!

Well, did I ask you
Yes would you come and share, oh, share
Oh, the burden and the task
Under my command
Didn't I say I
Promise all those special things
To fill up your hold
Then we could be so bold, yes be so bold, well
When I realized that you need shields too, to late
To fit the ones designed to pro-o-tect you
"You can't run, Anaconda"
Have mercy

Well, well, I flew the lanes fast as I could,
ma-nouvring, just like trea-cle pud ("Stop, you Anaconda")
Have mercy, Oo

When I realized there's no missles too
Gonna end my life
Regrettin' buying you (boy I'm such a loser)
"We got you Anaconda, fire"
Oh, mercy ("No mercy!")
Have mercy, pirates ("No mercy, loser")

I'm gonna make it on through despite you somehow
So have at me ("No mercy. Full lasers, fi-re)

Have I told you
Yes, lately that I love you
If I didn't, oh 'Annie
Yes, I'm so sorry
Ah, but you know I really love you, baby. (Love you 'Annie)
I really love you 'Annie (Super 'Annie)
I really need you 'Annie (Now my 'Annie)
I really want you 'Annie (Atomic Annie)

[screaming thrusters]

When I realized you had injectors too
I fired them long and hard
Runnin' hard, fleein' fast
The big bird back at you (pirates)

Well, I made the trade
Flew to Recexela
Fitted all the gear
Make you the number one star trader
(Now an iron-assed 'Conda - my 'Annie)
So, no mercy pirates (go 'Annie)
"Have mercy matey" (fire 'Annie)
"Oh, have mercy matey" (Atomic Annie)
We'll, make it on through

Well, now I realize that you've got teeth too
I'm gonna spend my life
In the freakin' best 'Conda trading...
(yes, got an Anaconda, my 'Annie) Chart Two
(Respect the Anaconda)
(Respect the Anaconda)
(I've got an Anaconda)
(No mercy, no mercy)


and the Boa update

Barely Idle - Got To Be A Boa

Have I told you
Lately that I love you
If I didn't, Boa
You see, I'm so sorry
Didn't I fill out your massive hold
With these illegal arms
Well, if I didn't, oh baby
Well, I'm so sorry
When I realized that you need guns too
I regret my choice not fittin' mils to you

"Hey it's just a Boa"
Have mercy
"Give up you're just a Boa, mate" (have mercy)
"Can't run you're just a Boa" (have mercy)
"No chance you're just a Boa"
Make it on through for you somehow (Have mercy, pirates)
Wish you weren't a Boa, babe ("Yeah right you're just a Boa")
Woop! Woop!

Well, did I ask you
Yes would you come and share, oh, share
Oh, the burden and the task
Under my command
Didn't I say I
Promise all those special things
To fill up your hold
Then we could be so bold
When I realized that you need shields too, to late
To fit the ones designed to pro-o-tect you
"Can't run, you're just a Boa"
Have mercy

Well, well, I flew the lanes fast as I could,
ma-nouvring, just like trea-cle pud ("Stop, you're just a Boa")
Have mercy, Oo

When I realized there's no missles too
Gonna end my life
Regrettin' buying you (boy I'm such a loser)
"Now we got you Boa, fire"
Oh, mercy ("No mercy!")
Have mercy, pirates ("No mercy, loser")

I'm gonna make it on through despite you somehow
So have at me ("No mercy, we've shot you, Boa)

Have I told you
Yes, lately that I love you
If I didn't, oh Boa
Yes, I'm so sorry
Ah, but you know I really love you, baby. (Love my Boa)
I really love you Boa (Super Boa)
I really need you Boa (Big girl Boa)
I really want you Boa (Lovely Boa)

[screaming thrusters]

When I realized you had injectors too
I fired them long and hard
Runnin' hard, fleein' fast
The bird back at you (pirates)

Well, I made the trade
Flew to Recexela
Fitted all the gear
Make you a number one star trader
(Now an iron-assed Boa - my baby)
So, no mercy pirates (go baby)
"Have mercy Boa" (fire baby)
"Oh, have mercy Boa" (iron baby)
We'll, make it on through

Well, now I realize that you've got teeth too
I'm gonna spend my life
In the freakin' best Boa trading
(yes, yes I got a Boa, my baby) Chart Two
(Make way for the Boa)
(Make way for the Boa)
(Got to be a Boa)
(You just can't beat a Boa)


Hope it raises a smile, cheers
