Lyrics Edit

I ... am the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer,
I've information on all things a Gallifreyan holds most dear.
I've linked into the Matrix through its exitronic circuitry,
I understand dimensional and relative chronometry.
I'm very well acquainted too with matters of the Capitol,
I'll give you verse and chapter on panopticonian protocol.
I've been into the Death Zone and I've played the Game of Rassilon,
Rassilon? Assilon? Bassilon? Aha!
with pestilential monsters that I got a lot of hassle from.
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle from!
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle from!
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle-assle from!
I understand each language and I speak every vernacular,
I'll conjugate each verb obscure, decline each line irregular.
In short in every matter that a Gallifreyan holds most dear I am the very model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer!
In short in every matter that a Gallifreyan holds most dear he is the very model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer!
I've tackled shady Castellans with devious behaviour,
I've sparred with Time Lord chancellors like Thalia, Goth, or Flavia.
In fact on some occasions I've held office presidentially,
though maybe I won't mention I was ousted out eventually.
I know just how it feels to be a wanted man and on the run,
but wouldn't leave the carefree buccaneering life for anyone.
Though sometimes my adventures seem absurdly operatical,
Operatical? Hatical? Patical? Aha!
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical.
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical!
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical!
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents pirati-ratical!
I've sailed the seven seas of Earth and all the oceans of the Moon,
My trusty true Type 40 is my Gallifreyan picaroon.
But is this really what the average Gallifreyan holds most dear?
I wonder what they think about this Gallifreyan Buccaneer.
But is this really what the average Gallifreyan holds most dear? We wonder what they think about this Gallifreyan Buccaneer.
But...
I've defeated evil robots such as Daleks, Quarks and Cybermen.
I've overthrown dictators from Tobias Vaughn to Mavic Chen.
I've rescued helpless maidens from the devastating Viking hoards.
Vanquished Autons, Axons, Dæmons, Krotons, Monoids, Vampires, Voords.
I've liberated planets and delivered them from total war,
saved Earth, Manussa, Dulkis, Skonnos, Earth, Tigella, Earth once more.
In short I know I am the truest Rassilonian legate.
Legate? Decate? Hecate? Hecate? Hmm, not sure if that's canonical. Aha, I have it!
And so to Time Lords all I say remember me to Gallifrey.
A sentiment we all agree remember him to Gallifrey!
A sentiment we all agree remember him to Gallifrey!
A sentiment we all agree remember him to Galli-allifrey!
I'm not content to just observe I am a bold adventurer,
though other Time Lords mock this Gallifreyan interventioner.
I know in every matter that a Time Lord really should hold dear I am the very model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer!
We know in every matter that a Time Lord really should hold dear he is the very model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer!
