  • Mighty drinking songs for fans of Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity--the perfect sound for hoisting a mug of mudder's milk. Get the 19 page songbook packed with lyrics-only to all of my Firefly-inspired songs, including: Firefly Drinking Songs, As Long As I'm Flyin', Kilted For Her Pleasure, and What Color Is Your Dragon? plus lyrics from Bedlam Bards' Browncoat album, On the Drift.

    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.

about

Men sometimes have trouble expressing their affection, like a certain Captain Malcolm Reynolds

lyrics

* She's shiny! Oh so shiny!
Don't say a word. I'm in love with that girl
She's shiny! Oh so shiny!
She keeps me spinning round and round in a whirl

Carryin' the weight of heartache from her past.
A-runnin' towards a future that won't last
What a beaut'! That girl makes my heart soar
She lights the night like a brightly shining... star

Dressed up for fancy ball in the dark of night.
Ain't gonna pull my punches, cuz I love to fight.
'Fore I knew, things got out of control
I set my sights on makin' it out whole

Sometimes she doesn't like the way I deal
Sometimes she lets me know with steel
Sometimes she sets good men on fire
Climb aboard and she'll ride up your spire.

I found her in a down and out, dirty place
Head down, feelin' a disgrace.
Looked inside and saw hope in her eyes
I knew one day that Firefly would fly!



* [G]She's shiny! Oh so [Em]shiny!
Don't [D]say a word. I'm in love with that [Em]girl
She's [G]shiny! Oh so [Em]shiny!
She keeps me [D]spinning round and round in a [Em]whirl

[C]Carryin' the weight of heartache from her [G]past.
[C]A-runnin' towards a future that won't [G]last
[C]What a beaut'! That girl makes my heart [G]soar
She [D]lights the night like a brightly shining... [Em]star
