  • Mighty drinking songs for fans of Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity--the perfect sound for hoisting a mug of mudder's milk.

    It all began while I was watching an episode of Firefly called “Jaynestown”. In it, one of our antiheroes is drinking in a pub worried he’s gonna be arrested for past crimes he committed in Canton when a musician starts singing a song about him. The song is called the “Hero of Canton“.

    It turns out, “Hero of Canton” even inspired me to ask the question, “What other songs might’ve been heard in that pub in Canton?”

    I began a mission to write some of those songs. But I didn't do it alone. I wrote them with my friends James "Cedric" Hazlerig, Rie Sheridan Rose, and various Browncoats.

Inspired by the birth of my daughter Inara Gunn

lyrics

Browncoat Baby
lyrics and music by Marc Gunn

Browncoat baby
In your daddy's arms
Wearing your Jayne's hat
With all of Kaylee's charm
I wonder what in life
You might be
And the choices you decide
Or disagree

Browncoat baby
As I watch you grow big
Will you be like Malcolm
Or River dance a wild jig
Will you be a doctor
Just like Simon Tam
Or perhaps you'll learn to pilot
Your own pram

Browncoat baby
Will your life be full and fun?
Will you follow Shephard Book
And embrace religion
I see you stacking up those blocks
Perhaps an engineer
Or the way you move those rocks, you'll
Work on a pier

Browncoat baby
You're my inspiration
I wanna build you
A Firefly nation
See you soar like an albatross
So wild and free
And watch you return to land
Home safe with me.

Browncoat baby
You are perfect to me
Just like a companion
With her tea ceremony
You've the brawn as well as the brains
Just like Zoe
You're the ship that keeps on flyin'
Serenity
