[Note: A few days before "Firefly" was preempted for "The Brady Bunch in the White House" on 11/29/02, Lux Lucre and I were independently inspired to write our first "Firefly" filks, both on "The Brady Bunch" theme song. His is called "Serenity": http://www.fireflyfans.net/bluesun.aspx?bid=370 .]

Sereniteers

By Ying (FFYING2), 2002

With apologies to "The Brady Bunch" by The Peppermint Trolley Company/The Brady Kids (written by Sherwood Schwartz/Frank DeVol, 1969)

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

Here's the story of a couple Browncoats

Mal and Zoe were the losers in the war

Joined by Kaylee, Wash and Jayne, Book the Shepherd

Inara, she’s a... Companion

It's the story of a couple townsfolk

River's brilliant, and Simon loves her so

The Blue Glove Men messing her mind all up

Till she got sprung by Bro'

Then came one day when the siblings found this spaceship

River knew, for she could think outside the box

That they'd bond: Companion, Engineer

Shepherd, Fighters, Pilot, Captain, her, and Doc

Sereniteers, Sereniteers

That's the way we became Sereniteers

==============================================

BONUS TRACK:

Ballad of the Brady Family

By Ying (FFYING2), 2002

With apologies to "Ballad of Serenity" by Sonny Rhodes (written by Joss Whedon, 2002)

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

Take one mom, take one dad

Take the kids that we each had

With Alice we're three-by-three

We're now too tic-tac-toey

Got six kids, how they yak

Can't we give some of 'em back?

Children six and bathroom one

Oh my gosh, what have we done?

INSTRUMENTAL

"Time to Change," don't you agree?

Trim the Brady fam'ly tree

Per-maybe-haps "lose" two or three...

Thanks, A.

This is what happens when you have to go three weeks between episodes ("Happy Gilmore" was shown--again--the week before the Brady Bunch movie).
