I am the navigator of the starship Enterprise,
And I am honor-bound by oath to lay off the cute guys.
But greater than my honor are the passions that will flare
Each time my Deltan pheremones go wafting through the air.
Farewell, Planet Delta; I rise to meet the stars,
And take my bald soprano song beyond your crowded bars.
While other female Deltans may frolic with their beaus,
My private quarters must remain a place where no man goes.
For I come from a planet where the higher forms of life
Have pheremones to help attract a husband or a wife.
On shipboard they draw men to me like horses to a trough.
I only wish I knew a way that I could turn them off.
Forgive me, Will, my darling: I never learned to love
Without the lifelong bonding that you fled in terror of.
But if you wish I could be yours for just a night or two,
You’d have to take your place in line along with half the crew.
