Elephants in the Ready Room

Chain of Command is a two part episode of Star Trek The Next Generation. I really dig that episode where Captain Picard is replaced by Captain Jellico. At one point during the show Counselor Troi visits with the captain as he shares pictures from home. One is a little stick figure drawing of an elephant. I just couldn’t resist, and thus “Elephants in the Ready Room was born to the tune of Smokin in the boys room. Enjoy!

Elephants in the Ready Room
to the tune of Smokin in the boys room
By Rick Moyer

(Spoken)
How you doin out there?  Y’ever seem to have one of those days
where it just seems like transmissions from a Cardasia say they are making biological weapons of mass destruction?
Well you know, it’s just run of the mill stuff in the federation, but get this the Enterprise has a new captain and it’s no fun, let me tell you about it.

(Sung)

Pickin up emissions, on the world Celtris 3
Picard Crusher and Warf book passage to see
Federation sends a guy Jellico’s his name
Tries to be the captain but drives everyone insane

Elephants in the Ready Room
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

A-checkin out a planet, the captain taken for sure
Strip him of his clothes, and Gul Madread torture
Back on the enterprise things are rather tense
Deanna wearing a uniform and four shifts are quite immense

Elephants in the Ready Room
yeah
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

(Clips from episode)

Give picard injections just to tell the truth
but defense of Minos Korva still remains aloof
Makin him all crazy by brainwashing into the night
Finally in the end the captain screams there are FOUR LIGHTS!

Elephants in the Ready Room
yes indeed
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.
One mo!

Elephants in the Ready Room
oh oh.
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everbody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

Give him back the Enterprise would ya?
