Words by Andy Wheeler
tune -- ? (your guess is as good as mine)
Well sit back, son, let me tell a tale
Of days gone by and of blood grown pale
Of warriors' creed and a traitor's bale
Let me spin the tale of Khitomer.
Back to Filk Page
Now in those days the men were men
Women were women and hens were hens
Birds were birds, well you get the idea
When life was good at Khitomer.
We'll face them here at Khitomer
Those treacherous foes with the pointy ears
Crash and burn on Khitomer.
Now in our day a true Klingon
Wouldn't be caught dead with a Romulan
We'd rather be drinking with the Federation
But not in the days of Khitomer.
The Romulans once were on our side
In the days before the great divide
The cloaking device and a new warp drive
Technology swaps on Khitomer.
We'll meet them here at Khitomer
A Bird of Prey full of Romulan Ale
Party tonight on Khitomer!
Starfleet said we could end the game
Of hostile acts and calling of names
Let's get together with some beer and dames
Let the peace talks start on Khitomer.
When the Romulans heard news of this
Well, one could say they were mighty pissed
"Those spineless fool," the High Command hissed
"We'll kick their ass at Khitomer!"
We'll head them off at Khitomer!"
Those dark-haired freaks with the pointy ears
Attacked us here at Khitomer!
The Romulans sent 10 Birds of Prey
With a thousand troops in each cargo bay
But even plasma bolts to their dismay
Couldn't break through the shields at Khitomer.
Now those on the surface were brave and strong
But could be no match for the Romulans
And they knew their supplies couldn't last very long
Keep raised the shields at Khitomer!
There's help on the way for Khitomer
Starfleet has sent the Enterprise C
To come to the aid of Khitomer!
There's many ways to honor a man
Who bravely dies at the enemy's hand
A warrior knows when to take a stand
Which led to the fall of Khitomer.
There's so many ways the story gets told
Some say the shields were just worn and old
But there's some who say it was a Dur-ass hole
Who dropped the shields at Khitomer.
It was a bloody scene at Khitomer
Those bloody devils with the pointy ears
It was a massacre at Khitomer.
Our battle cry is Khitomer!
When we have our sights on Romulan scum
We will shout, "Remember Khitomer!"
