There once was a fannish group, a pickin', singin' Filk group
They sang at many conventions the Filk songs of the fen.
They were long on foolish parody. Fans thought they were bizarre.
But genre' incompatibility, became a major flaw. Chorus
Well the one on the right was a full blown Trekkie
And the one in the middle was for Babylon 5
And the one on the left was into Highlander
And the guy in the rear was a closet Jedi
This filkish aggregation was a hit at many a Con
They did traditional Leslie and other Filk songs of the fen
They performed in different costumes, soon they were the rage
But genre' diversity prevailed upon the stage Chorus
The one on the right wore command uniform
And the one in the middle had a bad hair day.
And the one on the left played a Scottish clone
(well hello Dolly, well hello Dolly....OOP's sorry)
And the guy in the rear looked like 3 P O
When the banquet was over as the evening schedule planned
50 or 60 were gathered to hear the Filk songs of the fen.
They took their genre' seriously, and that night at the GoH's event
As the fen sang along and listened, they had a major vent. Chorus
Well the one on the right drew his phaser
And the one in the middle called the shadow horde
And the one on the left lost her head
The guy in the rear well.. he tripped over his light saber
Now to add insult to injury if you plan to start a Filk group
Don't go mixing genre' with the Filk songs of the fen.
Just work at Leslie and Frank Hayes, play your guitar well
And if you have any costumes, keep them on a shelf. Chorus
(Spoken) For the ultimate foolishness is..........
Now the one on the right works for Microsoft
And the one in the middle codes for Mac
And the one on the left's into Linux programming
And the guy in the rear..... is delivering pizza's somewhere
