Sweet Home Qon'oS

Sung to American Pie*

Lyrics:

1st Verse

A Long, Long time ago
I can still remember
How we used to make those Kuve cry
And I know if I had my chance
That I could make the humans dance
And maybe I’d be happy for a while
But Deep Space makes me shiver
With every Weapon I deliver
Bad news on the sub space
I couldn’t stand one more face
And I can’t remember if I cried
When I heard the Chancellor just had died
Something touched me deep inside
The Day, that Gowron died

Chorus

So Kai, Kai the Black Fleet's in the Sky
gonna grab my bat'leth and scream out my war cry
The Dominion’s in sight and now they’re gonna learn why
Today is a good day to die


2nd Verse


Did you write the book of Kor
And do you have faith in Battle’s Roar
If Kahless tells ya so
Now do you believe that Heads can roll
Can combat save your Klingon Soul
Can you teach me how to kill Real Slow
Well I know that you’re in a fight with him
Cause I saw the blood on bulkhead 10
You both broke all your knives
Now you’re fighting for your lives
I was lonely Warrior in a rut
With a Par’ma’kai that could kick my butt
So I knew I was out of luck
The day, that Gowron died

3rd Verse


For six months we’ve been on our own
While Martok’s holdin’ down the throne
But that’s not how it used to be
When the K’uve danced for Gowron’s glee
As we fired our weapons At their feet
And we laughed as they begged from
You and me..
And while Gowron was looking Down
Worf just killed him with a Frown
The bastard got away We’ll make that Feddy pay
And while Worf felt the Empire was a lark
Martok went and made his mark
But we sang dirges in the dark
The day that Gowron died

4th Verse

Helter skelter in an unknown sector
The ship flew off in a fall out vector
Warp 5 now and running fast
It crash landed on a rock
We all tried to kill the pet’oghs
But the Feddies blew their own ship way too fast
Now the Bridge air it was Sweet perfume
While Warriors screamed a fighting tune
We all got up to fight.
But got blinded by the light
Cause the Feddy blew across our firing field
Then what was left just tried to yield
But, we can't fight cowards and heels
The day that Gowron died


5th Verse


Oh, and there we were all in one place
Wishing we’d watched Lost in Space
With no time left to start again
So come on, Worf be nimble Worf be quick
I’ll light Worf with this candlestick
'cause fire is the fek’lyr’s only friend
Oh, and as I watched him on the screen
My hands were clenched with chunks of Breen
No Warrior steeled in hell
Could break that Fek’lyr’s spell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
We screamed the sacrifical rite
I saw fek’lyr laughing with delight
The day that Gowron died

6th Verse

I met a Band that sang the Blues
WarBand played those snappy tunes
but they just left for Earth today
I went down to 20_backward
where'd I killed some Kuve years before
but K'Seuss said that the Kuve wouldn't play
And on the Bridge the watch just screamed
the Stewards cried and the Captain dreamed
Not a word was spoken
The Disruptors all were broken
and the three ships I admired most
the Dark Shadow, the Runner, and the Fire of course
they set course for the Neutral Zone

The day that Gowron died



This is in our opinion the Magnum Opus of K'Filk.  It is also the most requested of the K'Filk songs.  Believe it or not, it was written slightly before Weird Al did "The Saga Begins" so we really hadn't stolen the idea from him (although everyone who wasn't here accuses us of this).  It started when one of Goldy's coworkers Brian (also a Klingon...Kai Ghur AtteH!) came to Goldy with part of the chorus.  Goldy sat down and the words just flowed.  The entire set of lyrics was finished in 45 minutes.  Unlike a lot of the K'Filk stuff, there were several personal references in the last verse (it was after all written for our fans).  Unfortunately, the singing on this recording flat out sucks.  Its not an easy song to sing and Goldy being sick REALLY shows here.  This is perhaps the worst we ever played/sung it...it sounds so much better live.  When we re-record the K'Filk stuff this year Goldy's goal is to find every single copy of this and burn it...so watch your discs and hard drives.  Our first performance of this song was in front of J.G. Hertzler (Martok) who loved it....his only complaint?  Where's my song?  (See Killing them All).  WarBand also had the privilege of playing Millennium Trek, a New Years Eve Party which sported Robert O'Reilly as the guest of Honor...so Robert has actually heard us play this live (and he has a copy).  He was floored.  We also played at Klingon Kon in Jacksonville in 2000 so all the other major DS-9 stars that are Klingons have likewise heard this and us. 

 

To explain the personal references we must supply some background.  At the time this was written our club was called the IKV Shadowfire.  We were part of a Fleet known as Shadow Fleet.  It was composed of us, IKV Shadow Runner, and IKV Dark Shadow...hence the 3 ships line.  20_Backward was the Fleet's Bar.  K'Seuss was the Fleet Mixologist (Running the bar).
