It's a long way until Orion!

"It's a Long Way Until Orion!" is based on an old WWI-era song called "It's a Long Way To Tipperary!" telling of an Irishman who had gone to London only to go back after his love declares that she's being forced to wed someone else unless he goes back to marry her instead. It was popular among soldiers due to the nature of wanting to go back to one's home, rather than songs that promised death and glory like those that preceded it.

Luckily for us, in a twist of irony, "It's a Long Way Until Orion!" gives us just that, but with more Forkiness, telling the tale of a Forker leaving a message to their family, prepared to die a glorious death, so that the Vanduul may learn to prey upon humanity no longer.

Quote

Into a stranger's Connie came a Terran on the Day
To stay with other folks whose revenge they would gladly pay
Singing songs of death and glory, valor and of gore
Jessie got excited and shouted to one and all:

It's a long way until Orion
Operation Pitchfork!
It's a long way until Orion
To the sweetest death of all!

Goodbye, Earth and Terra
Farewell to Cassel
It's a long long way until Orion
And our glory's there!

Jessie sent a message
To the folks way back at home
Saying "Should I not come back
Let everybody know
I was not sitting idly
but saving you from harm
And I took out 10 more of them
Until I bought my farm!"

It's a long way until Orion
Vanduul bastards galore!
It's a long way until Orion
To the sweetest death of all!

Goodbye, Earth and Terra
Farewell to Cassel!
It's a long long way until Orion
And our glory's there!

"I promise on my life that
I'll make every Vanduul die
And if I don't succeed well
hey, don't say I didn't try!
I must end this now
for they are calling
'To your ships!'
It can't be that far now
'til we arrive at Armitage!"

It's not that far now until Orion
Where we'll give them what for!
We aren't that far now until Orion
To the sweetest death of all!

Prepare, my friends and comrades
Vanduul scum beware!
It's a long long way until Orion
And our glory's there!


Remember Orion III! Remember Armitage!
