Rangers Rhapsody (by John Paul Green)

To be sung along to the tune of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen. If you don't watch Babylon 5, you won't get this.

Is this the after life, if so what a tragedy
Caught in the battle, soon gone from your TV screen
Open my mind, look up to Delenn and see

I’m just a Brit boy, no need for this Ranger
Because I’m cheesy yes, cheesy no?
Little future and a little slow
Anyway the show goes, there’s no longer a place for me

Marcus! Just killed himself
Put the staff down by his bed
Soliloquise no more you’re dead
Marcus! Your time is up
All for the love of Ivanova
Marcus! Ooh Didn’t need to do this thing
Her contract’s up and she won't be again this time tomorrow
Carry on in Babylon ‘cos she no longer matters

Too late, your heart is broke
Your voice sends shivers up my spine, got hair like Calvin Klien
Goodbye everybody I’m going now
Gotta leave B5 behind and sign for dole
Marcus! Ooh Let the Ruskie die
I sometimes wish she’d never been signed at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
It’s the shadows, the shadows
Thunderbolts and lightning Very nice effects indeed
G’Kar and Londo, G’Kar and Londo
Sounds like Gallileo a bit to me

I’m just a dead Brit, fans didn’t like me
(He’s just a Ranger with some funny tendencies)
Spare him a part in the spin-off movie
Easy come, easy GO
Will you let him go JMS?
Yes, I will let him go
Let her go!
Let him stay!
Let her go!
Let him stay
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh Jason Carter what will you be doing?
Probably a bit part on MST3K for me

So you think you can sack me and get a Brit psi
So you think Byron can waffle on better than I?
Oh Straczynski, don’t do this to me Straczynski
Just gotta mad, just gotta be bad and dangerous to know

Claudia doesn’t matter
All your fans can see
I’m the one with talent
Please take pity on me
Any way the show goes….
