I stumbled about this part on the main posting regarding “Disciplinary Actions” notification by TP/WRG.

As the forum isn't noticed but social media has power to transform, anyone having the creative power to add further lyrics?

In Star Trek terms, we're dealing with the Ferengi, not the Federation. Is anyone surprised at the Ferengi being tone-deaf, unforgiving, etc? No. But there are always people willing to deal with them...to a point.

Well, there was Nog …

Tune in the melody and help me make up new lyrics...

Original Lyrics:
There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea
The winds blew up, her bow dipped down
O blow, my bully boys, blow
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He’d take that whale in tow
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
Before the boat had hit the water
The whale’s tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
When she dived down below
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
No line was cut, no whale was freed
The Captain’s mind was not of greed
But he belonged to the whaleman’s creed
She took the ship in tow
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
For forty days, or even more
The line went slack, then tight once more
All boats were lost, there were only four
But still that whale did go
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
As far as I’ve heard, the fight’s still on
The line’s not cut and the whale’s not gone
The Wellerman makes his regular call
To encourage the Captain, crew, and all
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go
“There once was a game played on the phone,
the name of the game was Timelines, bro,
The chronitons flew and the timelines mixed,
Oh tap those buttons and buy.

Soon may the shuttles come home
To bring us bounty and DIL and...?
One day, when the banning is done
We’ll take our leave and go.
