The Lyrics

Somebody once misheard this title as "A krill in disguise." I don't know what a krill is, but I know what a Trill is! (Are?) This is for all the Trekkies -- well, all of those who know of the "joined species" most notably played by Terry Farrell on "Deep Space Nine." Dedicated to Merry & Pip, and those who love them -- and they know why!
I hold you in my arms, here in Risa's hotel.
What are those words whispered, baby
you know this place so well?
I saw you last night, out on the station's deck.
I wanna read your mind to know
why guys think I should keep my love in check.

So tell me what I see, when I look in your eyes?
Is that you, Ezri? Or just a Trill in disguise?

I heard somebody call a name, at you it was directed.
Masculine, to my ears it came, a mystery suggested.
Well, I try so hard, baby, but it just don't fly
why a woman like you would have a chromosome Y.

So tell me who I see, when I look in your eyes?
Is that you, Ezri? Or just a Trill in disguise?

Now, look at me, baby, struggling to make sense of this flight.
'Cause twenty years before, they say you had much more height.
I'm just a lonely ensign, you're such a sexy chick.
I wanna know were you really a man
'cause I damn sure don't make that pick!

Now you play the lovely woman, I play the horny man.
But I won't look too close at the way your life began.
When your gender was altered, Ferengi swore you're female, that's right.
But in the wee-wee hours, maybe, baby, you stood upright.

So when you look at me, you'd better know I don't shag guys.
Is that me, baby, who loves a Trill in disguise?

Tonight all space is cold, lost in the darkness of Trill love.
God have mercy on the man whose girl is man enough.

Then thereīs that they live for like 555 years, so not only did you shag a guy, it was an old geezer too... ;-)

Now I'm not really a Trekkie, just someone who hangs out with some, but isn't she a female with a completely nonhuman thing... where the nonhuman thing just happened to be previously bonded with a male. So technically, she isn't currently at all male, right? Anyway, funny stuff. 4/5/5

Thatīs right neminem. But us sf-fans canīt let stuff like that or facts or real science or gravity or whatever stand in the way of a storyline or parody or double entendre or pun etc. Thatīs not the way our matrix works. ;-)
