    There was a hit novelty record in about 1986 in the UK called "Star Trekkin' " by "The Firm", which, while incredibly annoying, was also maddeningly catchy:

    "Chorus: Star Trekking, across the universe,
    On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    Only going forward, 'cause we can't find reverse.

    Lt. Uhura, report!

    Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow,
    starboard bow.
    There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow, [again]. Full Version, 3:36 Min.

    Analysis!, Mister Spock!

    Spock: It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it,
    not as we know it.
    It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it, Captain.

    Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow,
    starboard bow.
    There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow, again.

    Chorus: Star Trekking, across the universe,
    On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    Only going forward, still can't find reverse.

    Medical update, Doctor McCoy

    McCoy: It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim.
    It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim, Dead.

    Spock: It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it,
    not as we know it.
    It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it, Captain.

    Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow,
    starboard bow.
    There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow, Jim!

    Starship Captain, James T. Kirk

    Kirk: Ha-ha! We come in peace, shoot to kill,
    shoot to kill,
    shoot to kill.
    We come in peace, shoot to kill,
    shoot to kill, men.

    McCoy: It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim.
    It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim.
    Dead, Jim, Dead.

    Spock: Well, it's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it,
    not as we know it.
    It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it, Captain.

    Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow,
    starboard bow.
    There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    scrape 'em off, Jim.

    Chorus: Star Trekking, across the universe,
    On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk!
    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    Only going forward, and things are getting worse!

    Engine room, Mister Scott

    Scotty: Ye canna change the laws of physics,
    laws of physics,
    laws of physics!
    Ye canna change the laws of physics,
    laws of physics, Jim!

    Kirk: Oh, we come in peace, shoot to kill,
    shoot to kill,
    shoot to kill!
    We come in peace, shoot to kill,
    Scotty, beam me up!

    McCoy: It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim!
    Dead, Jim!
    Dead, Jim!
    It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim!
    Dead, Jim, Dead!

    Spock: Well, it's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it,
    not as we know it.
    It's life, Jim, but not as we know it,
    not as we know it, Captain.

    Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow,
    starboard bow.
    There's Klingons on the starboard bow,
    starboard bow, aaagain!

    Scotty: Ye canna change the script, Jim! Och, the engines
    McCoy: It's worse than that, it's physics, Jim!
    Kirk: Bridge to engine room, warp factor nine!
    Scotty: Ach! If I give 'er any more she'll blow [, Captain]!

    << boom >>
    Na..na..na..na..na..na..na..na..na

    Chorus: Star Trekking, across the universe,
    On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk!
    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    Only going forward, 'cause we can't find reverse!

    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    On the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk.
    Star Trekking, across the universe,
    Only going forward, 'cause we can't find reverse. "

    My oldest daughter still talks about this song I recorded from Doctor Demento. That one among other demented songs.

    I actually keep that song on my MP3 player! Some people remember the diddy and others want to know where they can find it! I also keep Mexican Radio by Wall of Voodoo. Fun song too!
