Song lyrics:

Happy Birthday, George Takei

Well, my bandmates call me “Sulu,” though I wear a captain’s shirt

It’s not a term of endearment, but my feelings aren’t hurt

Yes, we all know who’s captain in the alternate universe

Mr. Takei, today we shall honor your birth

Along with Pavel Chekov, Hikaru Sulu did thrive

As they set phasers on stun at the helm of the Enterprise

So whether raising shields or having new tactics devised

Our favorite helmsman took us for a wild ride

George Takei
We celebrate

The 23rd century’s samurai of outerspace

What a guy

Happy birthday

George Takei

So whether you quote Shakespeare or you don a green beret

Coming out or staying in, Five Year Mission just wants to say

Whether you’re teaching swordsmanship to a superhero son

Or knocking off the captain, it’s a job well done

George Takei

We celebrate

The 23rd century’s samurai of outerspace

What a guy

Happy birthday

George Takei

Five Year Mission has also released a free download of “Happy Birthday, George Takei.
