1. Now I'll tell a tale of a fighting male

And a ship he captains well,

An assorted crew, they are the few

Who are on the run from hell.

Now Mal's the man, catch him if you can

To transport things you need

The charge is low, they're all set to go

So come and sign the deed.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity.

2. It's a damn tough life for Wash's wife

As the days blur into years.

For Zoe stands with gun in hand

As she guards his stash of beers.

Wash steers the ship without a slip

Apart from the time because

It ground to a halt, it was the fault

Of his plastic dinosaurs.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity.

2. If silk and lace makes your pulses race

Better take this turn inside

To Inara's face and her gorgeous place

For the rest, she'll be your guide.

Or take a look at Shepherd Book

With a prayer or healing word

If you want a creed, he's the one you need

And your problems will be heard.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity.

3. If you need some pills for any ills

Then Simon is your man

Our doctor's here, so have no fear

He will do the best he can.

There's a special box with tight shut locks

That Simon brought on board

But River's inside, she's forced to hide

From the evil overlords.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity.

4. The engines roar to make us soar

Our Kaylee tends them well

And if you've got what makes her hot

She'll show you 'special hell'!

A colossus stands with gun in hands

And fighting is his game

Our man called Jayne, he'll cause you pain

If you laugh at his given name.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity

5. And here's our home, she's like a poem

As she flies on out through space

The Serenity, seems good to me,

She's a thing of boundless grace.

(chorus)

We're flying on Serenity, me boys,

Flying on Serenity

It ain't far to the nearest star,

Flying on Serenity.
