You Em
broke 
into my caverns as a G
glut
ton after punishment,
And D
stran
ger tastes in food I've never Em
known
.
You're G
wel
come to those tasteless veins of D
di
amonds and dilithium.
Just C
leave 
me and my G
nest 
of eggs aD
lone
.

Chorus:
Em
may 
be the last on this D
pla
net.
The C
last 
of a G
great 
race's D
dregs
.
And if Em
on
ly you'd stop taking them for G
gra
nite,
You'd D
see 
 those big stone bowling balls are Em
eggs
.

You Em
beamed 
down to this planet when, for G
rea
sons then unknown to you,
The D
men 
were dying horribly each Em
day
.
What G
kind 
of crazy creatures send their D
cap
tain to investigate--
Yet C
think 
I'm less inG
tel
ligent than D
they
?

(Chorus)

I've Em
killed 
a few more miners extra G
grue
somely, to frighten you.
But D
life
, it seems, means nothing much to Em
you
.
PerG
haps 
I'll kill a couple of your D
crew
men from Security.
I'll C
bet 
you're not so G
used 
to losing D
crew
.

(Chorus)

I'm Em
etch
ing one last message even G
you 
can read.  I'm desperate now.
I'm D
stuck 
between a hard place and myEm
self
.
But G
make 
one more complaint about my D
gram
mar
or my penmanship,
You'll C
find 
I'm still a G
haz
ard to your D
health
!

(Chorus)
