The last three! Just awesome when I can hear the music in my head when I read the words, and the laugh out loud to the content! Well done!

Took a break from coding conundrums and this was the result...

Original Song: Superstition by Stevie Wonder
Quote:
Very repetitious, crashing in the wall,
Very repetitious, just can't dock at all,
Jameson with a cargo, made it through at last,
Seven pods of textiles, I ditched to save my ass

When you're docking with things no computers at hand,
Then your scuppered,
Match rotation so they say

Very repetitious, jump-drive when you can
Mass-locks are a problem, got no change of plan,
When I meet some pirates, it could all go wrong,
GalCop come and save me, I won't last for long

When you're shootin' at things but you find you're out manned,
Then you're scuppered,
Altercation doesn't pay, yeh, yeh

Very repetitious, happens every day,
Make it to the station, if I have my way,
Come into the aegis, get another chance,
Just can't seem to line up, I'm crapping my pants

When you're effort it brings nothin' but empty hands,
Then you're scuppered,
Commiseration by the way, oh, oh, oh

Wanted to do an Elvis one...
This one was fairly quick.

Original Song: Can't Help Falling In Love
Quote:
Stations say:
You can now dock in
But I can't help heading a course not true
Shall I pray?
Lord Giles let me in
When I can't help flying into my doom?

Everybody knows
The thing that I need
Docking, so it shows
It can be made easy
Take my plans,
Take my whole darn crew
If I can't dock we're in a right old stew

Everybody knows
Credits that I need
Shipyard to propose
Computers fit for me
Take my glands,
Take my left arm, too
If I could dock making some credits too
For I need help docking can be so cruel

A bit dark this one...

Word Up by Cameo
Quote:
Yo, savvy traders around this world
There are pirates you know they're after all you boys and girls
All your 'condas, your boas, escort mambas too
Well they're about to go down when they catch right up with you

You can fire from your rear like you don't care
Glide past the pirates I'm just a scavenger
One shield bank, two shield banks, both shield banks quick, mamba
Come on, eject, give me lots to earn

Scoop up (Up, up), cos that's the way
Hear a distress call I've got to get it underway
Scoop up (Up, up), what others earned
No matter what the cargo, inject before I'm burned

Now all you sucker hunters who wanna try
There's got to be a bounty and you know the bounty's high
You think your saving my rear and you're no fool
For fighting my attackers, my 'special gratitude'

You're heroic, I'm a cynic, I make my plans
Too bad there's not much cargo in that Fer de Lance
Just one chance, Fer de Lance, no big thanks from me, hunter
Come on, eject, give me lots to earn

Scoop up (Up, up), cos that's the way
Hear a distress call I've got to get it underway, ow

Much more silly...

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
Quote:
Loading up, armed to the teeth
Get in line, Fer de Lances
Met resistance, now I'm back with the fleet
Just a frog in his asp 'gainst the hive

So many mines it happens so fast
You need injectors for glory
Don't lose your ship in the streams of the blast
And you might take down three maybe five

I'm a furball survivor
In the space lanes I fight
Jumping in anarchies and states feudal
And the fastest of flyers
Can't escape from the fight
Be it insects or lobsters or birds, even tigers

Space is space: mostly no heat
Freeze your nuts, if you've any
Pray to your gods you've got a heated seat
For the will 'gainst the chill to survive

I'm a deep space suvivor
'gainst the chill of the night
Heating up with sun skimming solar fire
Cos the toughest of fighters
Keeps his nuts from frostbite
Be it rodent, humanoid, human, even tigers

Scooping up, gather my crop
Had the guts, got the booty
Yes maintenance, cost me more than I've got
Just a frog forty kids to provide

I'm a fam'ly provider
Forty kids and the wife
Earning up to salaries of my rivals
But unless I'm MacGyver
Fixing engines with tights
I'd rather be a lizard or man, or a tiger...

Hard Space Fight

It's been a hard space fight
and I've been hunting like a dog
It's been a hard space fight
I won't be sleeping 'til I dock
But when I sell all my loot
and find the things that I scooped
it makes me feel alright

You know I lurk all day
to catch offenders and scoop their pods
And it's worth it when I get my pay
sometimes a little, sometime lots
So after fuel and repair
I still have credits to spare
you know I feel OK

When I roam, everything seems to be quiet
When I roam, seeking offenders to fight, fight, yeah

(repeats two and a half times)

Young frog, there's no need to feel down.

I like the idea that when species is not specified or not relevant, you just assume frog. :lol:

:lol: Lobster could be funny too but frog is just one syllable and takes some beating as a comedic space pilot: spindly body, massive eyes, slightly startled expression...
