Jayne Cobb the Mercenary

By Ying (FFYING2), 2002

With apologies to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Gene Autry (written by Johnny Marks, 1949)

----------------------------------------------

You know Mal, Wash and Zoe and Simon and Kaylee

River and Book and Inara, just maybe

But have you caught sight of the fearsome Serenitite?

Jayne Cobb the mercenary

Has a lot of shiny guns

They're used for all his thieving

Vera is his favorite one

All of his life has been spent

Doing things that aren't so good

One job went south, made Jayne Cobb

Gorram Mudder Robin Hood

Then one day off Ariel

Captain whacked his skull

Jayne Cobb stuck in airlock tight

Traitor got a giant fright

While Jayne is still annoying

Not completely gone straight-laced

Jayne Cobb the Mercenary

Keeps himself from getting spaced

Thanks, Anon. Even with so few episodes, Firefly has a lot to work with.

That's really funny, and you managed to do it very well - both in terms of the cadence and keeping the same story format as the original.

Xiexie, girlfan. It's nice to know people are still discovering these things.
