Filk (Parody) Songs
Sereniteers + Ballad of the Brady Family
This is my first Firefly filk, from just before the show was preempted for a rerun of The Brady Bunch in the White House (11/29/02).
By Ying (2002), with apologies to "The Brady Bunch" by The Peppermint Trolley Company/The Brady Kids (written by Sherwood Schwartz/Frank DeVol, 1969)
Here's the story of a couple Browncoats
Mal and Zoe were the losers in the war
Joined by Kaylee, Wash and Jayne, Book the Shepherd
Inara, she’s a . . . Companion
It's the story of a couple townsfolk
River's brilliant, and Simon loves her so
The Alliance messing her mind all up
Till she got sprung by Bro'
Then came one day when the siblings found this spaceship
River knew, for she could think outside the box
That they'd bond: Companion, Engineer
Shepherd, Fighters, Pilot, Captain, her, and Doc
That's the way we became Sereniteers
Bonus Track: Ballad of the Brady Family
By Ying (2002), with apologies to "Ballad of Serenity" by Sonny Rhodes (written by Joss Whedon, 2002)
Take one mom, take one dad
Take the kids that we each had
With Alice we're three-by-three
We're now too tic-tac-toey
Got six kids, how they yak
Can't we give some of 'em back?
Children six and bathroom one
Oh my gosh, what have we done?
"Time to Change," don't you agree?
Trim the Brady fam'ly tree
Per-maybe-haps "lose" two or three . . .
