There's a red light on the dash board on the Star Ship Enterprise

There was a red light on the dash board
On the Star Ship Enterprise.
The engine overheated
And the water boiled inside.

The temperature gauge was in the red
And we’re doing warp factor ten.
The fan belt which pumps the water
Had snapped in two again

How long before the engine melts
It was really hard to tell.
Mr.Spock raised one eye brow
It was as hot as hell

“It’s the 23rd Century” 
Scotty shouted out.
“And were still reliant on some
dodgy old fan belt”

Captain Kirk then whispered into lieutenant Uhura’s ear
The way to solve the problem is to take off some gear.
I have just the solution, there’s no need to fear
Lieutenant Uhura’s stocking will get us out of here


Scotty wrapped the stocking 
Around the broken water pump
And soon the water circulated
And the oil cooled in the sump

The engine was soon purring like 
80’s Atomic Kitten
All down to Captain Kirk
And Uhura’s silken stocking
