Happy Birthday George Takei

Well, my bandmates call me “Sulu” though I wear a captain’s shirt
It’s not a term of endearment, but my feelings aren’t hurt
Yes, we all know who’s captain in the alternate universe
Mr. Takei, today we shall honor your birth

Along with Pavel Chekov, Hikaru Sulu did thrive
As they set phasers on stun at the helm of the Enterprise
So whether raising shields or having new tactics devised
Our favorite helmsman took us for a wild ride

George Takei
We celebrate
The 23rd century’s samurai of outerspace
What a guy
Happy birthday
George Takei

So whether you quote Shakespeare or you don a green beret
Coming out or staying in, Five Year Mission just wants to say
Whether you’re teaching swordsmanship to a superhero son
Or knocking off the captain, it’s a job well done

George Takei
We celebrate
The 23rd century’s samurai of outerspace
What a guy
Happy birthday
George Takei
