Our ear-tufts are gleaming with rings of bright gold.
Our dress is as rich as the goods in our hold.
Yet we pause on the ramp for a moment, in shock
To see the strange creature that bolts from the dock.
It dodges our claws and leaps straight through the lock,
Right into The Pride of Chanur.

We are the Pride of Chanur,
Glossy of eye, fang and fur.
Our fame is unblemished,
Our ship is the best,
For we are the Pride of Chanur.

Now this is no beast, for it knows where to run,
Knows when it’s trapped, recognizes a gun.
Despite signs of hunger and cuts in its hide,
It stands to defy us with true, haughty pride,
Then writes unknown letters in the blood from its side
On the deck of The Pride of Chanur.

We are the Pride of Chanur,
Glossy of eye, fang and fur.
Our fame is unblemished,
Our ship is the best,
For we are the Pride of Chanur.

Now this is a prize, and a mystery to track,
And here come the Kif thieves demanding it back.
Now shall we give over and meekly obey,
Once more let the pirates of Kif have their way?
They’ve robbed us before, but they’ll not win today!
No deal from the Pride of Chanur!

We are the Pride of Chanur,
Glossy of eye, fang and fur.
Our fame is unblemished,
Our ship is the best,
For we are the Pride of Chanur.

They’ve fired on the station, the jump-point and more,
They’re halting all trade, and they’ve started a war!
Great Gods, how enormous the trouble has grown
For the sake of one male of a species unknown.
Would we have done better to leave him alone?
Hell no, not the Pride of Chanur!

We are the Pride of Chanur,
Glossy of eye, fang and fur.
Our fame is unblemished,
Our ship is the best,
For we are the Pride of Chanur.
