We're Still Flyin'

By Ying (FFYING2), 2004

[Dedicated by Cyby and Ying to Kerry Pearson (Lux Lucre), 1963-2004, whose spirit and creations still keep the Browncoats flying.]

With apologies to "Eye of the Tiger" (from Rocky III) by Survivor (written by Frankie Sullivan/Jim Peterik, 1982)

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

Shiny fans won't take defeat

Joss is tryin', makes advances

Our persistence helped us get DVDs

We're the fans of the show "Firefly"

Can't take our sky, our 'verse is too vast

And Joss can fashion a story

We all will flip for the film with the cast

We will fight for the film, got the drive

CHORUS:

And that's why we're still flyin', we're still fightin' the fight

Shiny fans, we're the Browncoats and we're thrivin'

Oh we're more than survivin', see our boards and our sites

And we'll never give up, and that's why we're still flyin'

Face to face, sometimes we meet

Hangin' out, havin' shindigs

Our folks at Cons sing and watch some repeats

Spread the glow of the show "Firefly"

CHORUS:

And that's why we're still flyin', we're still fightin' the fight

Shiny fans, we're the Browncoats and we're thrivin'

Oh we're more than survivin', see our boards and our sites

And we'll never give up, and that's why we're still flyin'

Shiny fans, cream of the crop

Full of hugs, full of stories

Our persistence means we're not gonna stop

We're the fans of the show "Firefly"

CHORUS:

And that's why we're still flyin', we're still fightin' the fight

Shiny fans, we're the Browncoats and we're thrivin'

Oh we're more than survivin', see our boards and our sites

And we'll never give up, and that's why we're still flyin'

That's why we're still flyin'...

That's why we're still flyin'...

That's why we're still flyin'...

[Based on Cyby's source song and her idea of "still fighting the fight, won't give up. We're the Browncoats" for the end of the chorus.]

Wow, Ying! That's quite an impressive collection of Filk you just posted -- are they all new?

Thanks, Shiny.

No, most of them are from when Firefly was still on the air in the U.S. But there was a flurry back then--nine songs in four weeks.
