Five hundred years from now. . .
In a system far away
The Alliance discovered the Pax
And they knew this chance
Could gain everyone's compliance
And, maybe, force them to smile

But the result, it made me shiver
No one cared, none but River.
Psychics on the lab table;
Her brother came as quick as able.

I can't remember if I pained
When I heard of her mangled brain,
But something cut me to the vein
The day Miranda died.

So bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly.
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

Did you write the propaganda
Think you know 'bout Miranda,
If the Alliance tells you so?
Do you believe in equal rights,
Beyond the lessons of short sights,
And see the truth for all to know?

Well, I know Kaylee's in love with him
'Cause I saw her starin' on the rim.
They both took in the news.
And avenged his sister's abuse.

She was a lonely teenage genius freak
When they went and gave her brain a tweak,
But she really went up the creek
The day Miranda died.

She started singin',
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

Now for six years we've been on our own
And moss grows fat on a gravestone,
But that's not how it used to be.
When the Browncoats fought for what was theirs
In coats that drew Alliance stares
And a cause that fought for you and me,

Oh, and while the fire was raining down,
Serenity Valley earned its renown.
The battle was surrendered;
But all would be remembered.
And while Mal practiced calligraphy
He smuggled and Badger took his fee,
And we couldn't guess what might be
The day Miranda died.

We were singing,
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

Helter skelter in a gunship smelter
The leaf flew down to the signal's shelter,
Eight atmos high and falling fast.
It landed like a blast
Wash's flying was unsurpassed,
Oh Whedon you thrice-damned bast-

Now the battle seemed quite grim
Anyone could go now, if they'd take him.
They all got up to fight,
Small but no lack of might!
'Cause the Reavers tried to advance;
River decides it's time to dance
Do you recall her creepy trance
The day Miranda died?

We started singing,
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

Oh, and there we were all in one place,
A little ship lost in space
With no safe Haven to start again.
So come on: Jayne be nimble, Jayne be quick!
Jayne's grenades blast through real slick
Cause fire is the devil's only friend.

Oh, and as I watched him on the ship
My hands so drenched in blood did slip.
No angel born in Hell
Could break the Operative's shell.
And as the signal carried into the night
To let all the 'verse know right,
I saw him laughing in sheer fright
The day Miranda died

He was singing,
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

I met a girl all dressed in pink
And I asked her if she was past the brink,
But she just pulled Simon away
I flew down to the central core
Where I'd seen the lies many times before
But what happened there, I couldn't say.

And in the streets, the children screamed,
The officers lied, and the Browncoats beamed.
But not a word was spoken;
The signal could not be broken.
And the three men I admire most:
Mr. Universe, Book, and Wash all boast
They're all sadly now toast
The day Miranda died.

And they were singing,
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly,
"We'll sure miss that Firefly."

They were singing,
"Bye-bye, Miss Serenity, fly."
We believe her 'bout the Reavers,
Now we don't want to die
And the Browncoats sit around watchin' the sky
Sayin', "We'll sure miss that Firefly."
