Return to Return to Tomorrow, a Star Trek Classic episode.
Another Saturday night and I ain’t got no body.
I’m just a spirit that this globe lamp stores.
Now how I wish I had some bod to walk in.
Say can I borrow yours?
I had a body strong and stout,
But I was forced to throw it out.
I’m sitting on this shelf now.
I’m stuck here by myself now,
And it makes me want to shout! (Rats!)
I’ll tell you what I’d like to do:
If you’d lend me a hand or two,
I’ll build a plastic body,
Although it may be shoddy,
And I’ll give yours back to you. (Right!)
Your body works without a flaw.
I think you hold the shorter straw.
You’ve heard the old expression?
The one that says possession
Can be nine tenths of the law... (Well...)
Another Saturday night and now you’ve got no body.
You’re just a spirit that my globe lamp stores.
And don’t you wish you had some bod to walk in,
Now that I’ve stolen yours!
The captain’s back, it now appears,
And so’s the guy with pointed ears.
But my prevarications saved me for generations
While I’ve aged just twenty years. (Ha!)
Another Saturday night and I still got some body.
Turned off the reverb to conceal my schemes.
This same old face, now called Dr. Pulaski,
May not be what she seems.
