The Trouble With Tribbles (track 3)

Showed up on the Enterprise, ready to bring happiness to all,
Furry, soft, pleasant, and nice to you.
We’ll eat some food.  We’ll multiply, so make some room for our friends.
We’ll be so many, all will want two.

We’ll purr for you.
Our trilling soothes.
You won’t ever want to part with us.

One million, seven hundred seventy-one thousand, five hundred and sixty-one,
multiplicative proclivities none could foresee.
There’s no restraint, no natural predators, the cork has been removed.
The proverbial genie has been set free.

This loving brood.
You’ll love us too.
Only the Klingons won’t approve.

We are Tribbles.  We’ll be no trouble.
We’re Tribbles.  You’ll love us too.
We are Tribbles.  We’ll be no trouble.
We’re Tribbles.  You’ll love us too.

For now we’ll stick around, we’ll have some fun, and then we’ll be moving on.
There’s only so much Quadrotriticale.
We’ll eat ourselves to death or just get stuffed and laze around on the bridge.
We find that high-yield grain so filling.

Just one request.
If we’ve annoyed,
Please don’t transport us into the void.

We are Tribbles.  We’ll be no trouble.
We’re Tribbles.  You’ll love us too.
We are Tribbles.  We’ll be no trouble.
We’re Tribbles.  You’ll love us too.

Ba ba ba ba baaa, ba da ba ba ba.
