I just got hold of a filk y'all should listen to, by the Bedlam Bards. *grins*

I present:



Joooosss... the man they call Joooosss...
He wrote about spaceships and Shepherds and whores
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for
Fox cancelled his programme but that was their loss
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joooosss

Now 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 programme.
Can't grind it under your heel."
So he took all his cash and, well, now, at last
They've landed a Big Damn Movie deal

He wrote about spaceships and Shepherds and whores
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for
Fox cancelled his programme but that was their loss
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joooosss

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 - yeah!
It's a little like X-Files
It's better than Trek and it's funnier than Shrek
And it beats out Andromeda by miles

He wrote about spaceships and Shepherds and whores
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for
Fox cancelled his programme but that was their loss
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joooosss

Dong ma?

He wrote about spaceships and Shepherds and whores
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for
Fox cancelled his programme but that was their loss
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joooosss

Now here is what separates Whedon
From writers who slave on the poor
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
'Til all those crazy Browncoats rise again

He wrote about spaceships and Shepherds and whores
Stood up to the networks and gave 'em what for
Fox cancelled his programme but that was their loss
The creator of Firefly, the man they call Joooosss!

I have heard this one once before. It is hilarious. If YSI is possible, it would definitely be cool!

I sang this in public!

No rly!

It was at a midnight showing of Serenity; my friend and I stood up before the movie started and sang 'Ballad of Jayne,' then these guys requested we sing 'Ballad of Joss.' They had a print out of the lyrics, so who were we to say no?

Much love for this song.
