The Lyrics

Yesterday was Tom Lehrer's 90th birthday, and it made me think of this.
(piano intro)

Hear me sing as I tell you
of Khan Noonien Singh.
A man whose ambition
had shown no contrition.
A product of heightened
genetic en-gin-eer-ing.
It created a superman
named Khan Noonien Singh.

You might find him so intriguing.
Don't ask questions, he'll find them fatiguing.
"One-quarter of Earth
knelt in kissing my ring.
But it all fell apart,"
laments Khan Noonien Singh.

Sent into harsh space
was this once-strong princeling.
When his reign was upended
animation was suspended.
When Captain Kirk found him
he did a bad thing:
And soon he regretted
meeting Khan Noonien Singh.

He became Enterprise nemesis.
Fifteen years later, stole Project Genesis.
If not for Spock, would have topped
Flash Gordon's Ming!

"I'm now miscast into darkness!"
says Khan Noonien Singh!
