The Lyrics

Hope I got the OS title right. I imagine this being sung in a Captain Kirk voice...
A most sad event was in the news today
Mr Scott of Star Trek fame has passed away.
Chief of engineering on the Enterprise
Has been beamed up to that starship in the skies.

How's the afterlife Mr Scott?
Is our final frontier the Hereafter?
Or does one just become anti-matter?
Mr Scott?

Captains log for stardate seven twenty five
Mr Scott's immortal soul achieved warp drive.
Seeking out some strange and new worlds to explore
Coldly going where he's never gone before.

How's the afterlife Mr Scott?
Is our final frontier the Hereafter?
Or does one just become anti-matter?
Mr Scott?

For one catch phrase you'll always be renowned
Way long after you've been planted in the ground.
'Cause each time we have a Code Blue on our ward
We'll say Scotty's trying to beam this guy aboard.

How's the afterlife Mr Scott?
Is our final frontier the Hereafter?
Or does one just become anti-matter?
Mr Scott?

Like I said yesterday, the engines now run smooth, and he's as thin as he was in 1966. I guess the laws of physics have been changed. The actual title is "New York Mining Disaster 1941," sometimes known as "Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones?" This will surprise some people who only know The City, but there are still mining communities in Western New York, and there were certainly more in 1941... though how the Bee Gees found that out, I don't know. It's possible their song may refer to York in England or a New York in Australia.

Mike I missed your parody yesterday. LOL! Thanks for being as always a font of info, too. Scotty was my favorite Star Trek character. I am a sucker for a non-Midwest USA accent.

Gary Davies on Real Radio played The Firm's 'Star Trekkin'' today as a Novelty No.1s album had just entered their chart. I thought of Scotty when the line 'you cannae change the laws of physics' came on!

I don't know the original song, but it was a heartwarming tribute to James Doohan.
