Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

I was blown away by Battlestar Galactica as a kid. It was the most cool show ever. I watched every episode as many times as I could and I took my Montgomery Wards cassette recorder and recorded the audio, then listened to them went I went to bed. Yes, this was before the VCR. Man, what a cool show. So, this was my tribute to it. I used a synthesizer and my computer to record the music and do the vocals. I hope you enjoy. Word.

The Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
by Rick Moyer

When I was just a boy
I heard that ABC
Was serving up some drama
In space that I could see

T’was bout a Battle Star
But not your normal stanza
Starring Loren Green,
Cartwright from Bonanza

So these Shiny metal bots
With a mission like machines
Were killing all the colonists
With a budgets never seen

Every week I’d watch
As the ships would turbo up
And laugh at Boxy’s moffit
The barking robot pup

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

Those nasty little Cylons
Spouting by your command
Were killing all the humans
And taking all their land

They blew up all the Battle stars
With out a second thought
Only the Galactica
Would be the one they fought

So they forced the humans out
Into space they had to run
Putting all their ships together
Man that wasn’t fun

The characters all made me smile
Their wit and hero folly
Like Starbuck and Appollo
Cornel Tigh and good ol’ Jolly

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

Adama and Athena,
They were always there
Then Sheeba, and boomer
Cassiopeia  so fare…

The Villians were so cool
With names like Lucifer
Boltar and his minions
And centurions for sure

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

I felt bad for Apollo
When Serena had to die
But later when the Pegasus
Sheeba caught his eye

Count Ebliee made me nervous
With his mental powers strong
But what about those chicks
With mouths that sang that song?

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

I thought it was over
When the bugs they set the tones
And when everyone was partying
They were eating honeycombs.

But our heroes made it out
Giving uniforms to greeters
Saving all their warriors
By faking all the leaders

The coolest part about the show
And they came from near and far
Were  the raiders and the Vipers
Base Stations and Battle Stars

The viper was the coolest
With a talking one to boot
Cora loved on starbuck
As he wore his darkened suit

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

The episodes I really liked
That stand right out for me
were red eye,  pig raiders
Starbucks Dad those three

Then the blowing up of base star
Was one I liked a lot
As they wobbled on their wings
Just so they would not  get shot

Really all the episodes
Were right in with the vibe
Watching every week
For the 13th tribe.

Pyramids and Castles too
Fighting and the mirth
All the while searching for the new
Home they called the EARTH

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

There’s series that came after
Not the one with Katee
The silly episodes
Galactica 1980

It didn’t last so long
Troy and Dillan disappeared
After all it was really funny
To see Adama in a beard.

Then there is the new one
On sci fi that’s for sure
But Starbuck is a woman
And it’s full of gripping fear

The cylons had a makeover
The CGI just rocks
Some of them look human
We learned that in their talks

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

So crack open some mbrosia
And raise your glass real high
Cause Battlestar Galactica
Really caught my eye

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet

Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
Yeah, the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet
