  • 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.

lyrics

Jayne on Your Side
by Justin Boot

[G]He’s dumb but he’s tough, he [C]likes to shoot stuff
And he [G]won’t give a damn what ya [D]think
Spends his [G]days turning wrenches, his [C]night chasing wenches
And he’ll [G]happily [D]kick in your [G]teeth,
[C]Yes, he’ll [G]happily [D]kick in your [G]teeth

He come from St Joe where he grew up with his ma
Lots of fish and this drunk Mexican
He hopped a few trains just to ride off his pains
Now he’s doing the best that he can, yes he’s doing the best that he can

He come from St. Joe where he grew up with his ma
Lots of fish and this drunk Mexican
He hopped a few trains just to ride off his pains
Now he's doing the best that he can,
Yes, he's doing the best that he can.

chorus:
He's troo proud to live and too dumb to die
Lord knows that his mother she tried
He always meant well while he's going to hell
But it's good to have Jayne on your side,
Yes, it's good to have Jayne on your side.

He drinks mudders milk, he don't wear no cock ring
He don't fight for no honor or fame
A night out with his gun is his idear of fun
And he thinks all you mudder are lame,
Yes, he thinks all you mudders are lame.

He steals what he needs from the big companies
And returns it so he can get paid
First son of Spinard his life is quite hard
Escaping the messes he's made,
Yes, escaping the messses he's made.

He's living his dream he fixes up things
He's got hima rusty shotgun
A three-legged dog, a shack on a hill
And that's his retirement fund,
Yes, that's Jayne's retirement fund.

He rolls with the Satins, he don't do much hatin'
Not much in this Verse that he needs
Jus a little more clutch, some vittles and such
And one night with some pretty young girl,
Yes, some trim from some fine looking girl.
