When I was young I read everything
I made sure it reached the standard line
Now I'm guilt stricken,
sobbin' with my head on the floor.
Hurt all those Trekkies by taking bad advice

I must be held responsible
I had the final voice.
I must be held responsible
I was the one that made the choice.

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made me think that it was wise to
let Bill do Star Trek V.
For the life of me I cannot believe
I ever agreed to this
schlock written by Shatner.

My friend Len took a week's
vacation to forget it
Nichelle took a week's worth
of Cheese-Os and slept
Now Jimmy's guilt stricken sobbin' with
his head on the floor
Think about the script and how I never spoke
up I'm sayin'

I must be held responsible
I had the final voice.
I must be held responsible
I was the one that made the choice.

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made me think that it was wise to
let Bill do Star Trek V.
For the life of me I cannot believe
I ever agreed to this
schlock written by Shatner.


We've tried to wash our hands of all of this
we never talk of our lacking Star Trek scripts
but we were guilt stricken sobbin' with our
heads on the floor
It fell through the cracks when I'd been
workin' on Next Gen.

I must be held responsible
I had the final voice.
I will be held responsible
I was the one that made the choice.

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made me think that it was wise to
let Bill do Star Trek V.
For the life of me I cannot believe
I ever agreed to this
schlock written by Shatner.

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made me think that it was wise to
let Bill do Star Trek V.
For the life of me I cannot believe
I ever agreed to this
schlock written by Shatner.
Schlock written by Shatner!
It was made by Shatner....(sob)
