The Ballad Of Ol' Roy
So, while digging out the various souvenirs of my adventures with the rangers, I came across this little ditty that I wrote before we got word the show was canceled. In each of my Old Roy episodes I wrote a song, an old mining song for Roy to sing, just a few lines. But after the second one (Boomtown) I started to think in terms of what Roy would sing down the road. So I wrote the rest of Oh, Tortuna.
Anyway, since this never got used, I guess it makes it glorified fanfic. Hope you like it.
The Ballad of Ol' Roy
by Dan Fiorella
(to the tune of "Oh, Susanna.")
Entered a space contest and much to my surprise won a trip to see the stars, The constellation prize. The sun shone bright the day we left and everything got hot but that's the way it's always been; A sun can't change its spots. Oh Tortuna Oh don't you cry for us. We're gonna make our fortune soon, Utopia or bust. The Red giants did light our way and white dwarves made our trail Tightened up our as'troid belt Caught a comet by the tail. The cosmic dust, it made us sneeze, The Big Bang made us cringe Got wet in mete-or showers And dried in solar winds, (Refrain) The Milky Way was curdled and the Big Dipper got bent Flew into a black hole and returned before we went. Gonna travel to the sun for a historic flight We'll be okay, we won't burn up, We're going there at night. (Refrain) Ran rings 'round Saturn but Jumping' Jupiter took thrust The planet Mars made us see red and Uranus made us blush. We're gonna take a lunar trip in our big fancy jet Come along and join us and be a space cadet. (Refrain)
...not that I'm not miffed that the audio clips don't include roy's tunes or anything...
