Turn Me Off

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

Hangnails and sore backs and raging PMS.
Who treats it? You got it
You don't have to guess!
I'm just a hologram, not a superman -
I don't mean to scoff.
They use me, then they leave me and
Forget to turn me off!
Turn me off! Turn me off!
They save the galaxy once a week
But forget to turn me off!

Get a life? I don't have a life. I have... a program.

No nurses, no medtechs,
No relief in sight.
Shockwaves and organ-snatchers,
Strangers left and right!
I wasn't meant to be permanent,
I was never meant to stay!
I'm only for emergencies,
But here that's everyday!
Turn me off! Turn me off!
They save the galaxy once a week
But forget to turn me off!

Captain, I must speak to you about my holographic projector. You see, I'm shrinking... Yes, I'll hold....

We got Maquis and Ocampa and Talaxian
How to treat them? I don't know yet -
None of this was planned!
I compromise, keep the crews alive
I do everything I can.
How did this happen? When did I
Join the voyage of the damned?
Turn me off! Turn me off!
They save the galaxy once a week
But forget to turn me off!

Turn me off! Turn me off!
Said even holograms need to sleep -
Don't forget to turn me off!

I must protest! I was never intended to function under these circumstances! Captain, I insist everyone who is not a patient leave Sickbay immediately! This is my last word on the subejct-COMPUTER END PROGRAM!

We saved the galaxy just this week,
and now we've turned him off!
