The Lyrics

Narrator: Montgomery Edward Scott, Chief Engineer of the 23rd Century Starship Enterprise. "NCC-1701. No bloody A, B, C, or D!" My favorite character in the entire "Star Trek" canon. Actually, being that Scotty is from Scotland, and a British citizen, this might work better with the Beatles' cover version.
No, Captain, no!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
It just ain't possible, now, is it?
I am an engineer, that's my business!
But I just can't get with it!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
There just ain't no chance, you see!

I got dilithium and all that jazz.
It makes the starship go so very fast.
Until it decrystallizes, you see
and then we're topping out at just Warp 3!

So, no, I canna change the laws o' physics!
It just ain't possible, now, is it?
I am an engineer, that's my business!
But I just can't get with it!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
There just ain't no chance, you see!

I went and checked it out with Mister Spock.
A man who knows how to make starships rock.
I must admit, he gave me quite a hand.
The engine's blowin' like a hurricane!

But no, we canna change the laws o' physics!
It just ain't possible, now, is it?
I am an engineer, that's my business!
But I just can't get with it!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
There just ain't no chance, you see!

From down south comes Doctor "Bones" McCoy.
We mixed my Scotch, his bourbon, and some joy.
Put dilithium in that cup
and our engines, they got all shook up!

But, no, we canna change the laws o' physics!
It just ain't possible, now, is it?
I am an engineer, that's my business!
But I just can't get with it!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
There just ain't no chance, you see!

Don't try to do with a Klingon!
Don't trust those guys to bring on!
The ship's shakin' like it's dancin'!
What are ya doin' to my engines?

No, I canna change the laws o' physics!
It just ain't possible, now, is it?
I am an engineer, that's my business!
But I just can't get with it!
I canna change the laws o' physics!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
There just ain't no chance, you see!
(Cha-cha-cha!)
Oh, m' poor bairns!

Good job again, Michael. Not much of a trekkie, but some of the movies (Wrath of Kahn, Search for Spock, Voyage Home...) are among some of my all-time favorite movies haha (I must admit I feel a tab bit guilty admitting this) But oh well. As I said, good job. 555 PS Where are the nuclear wessels?
