The song "Riding The Galactic Trail" is performed in the episode She Blinded Me with Technology by Sparks Nevada and Mercury (Marc Evan Jackson and Andy Daly). Unofficial chords for this version can be found here

It is later performed by Sparks Nevada, The Barkeep, Highwayman Dan, Alex Cartwright, and Pembroke Cartwright in Mortified on Mars (Marc Evan Jackson, Joshua Malina, Mark McConville , Annie Savage, and Andy Richter.) Unofficial chords for this version can be found here

During the show's run at M Bar, the song was sung by Sparks and Croach the Tracker, as seen in a clip in episode 37 of the Kevin Pollak Chat Show. That episode may be seen here, and the clip in question begins at 2:44:10. Per Hal Lublin at ECCC 2014, this performance was during the final show at M Bar. It was decided to end the show by having the characters in a possibly romantic relationship before Sparks Nevada canon reset during the move to Largo. Unofficial chords for this version can be found here

The lyrics in all three versions vary. Riding the Galactic Trail was written by Andy Paley with lyrics by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker.

Lyrics - She Blinded me with TechnologyEdit

Mercury
Out upon the crimson frontier
Where the antelope play with the gamma ray deer

Sparks Nevada
You can't even see the Earth from up here

Together
Riding the galactic trail


Mercury
Time to leave your troubles behind
Let's don't pay 'em no nevermind

Sparks Nevada
Cyberhorses ain't the worrying kind

Together
Riding the galactic trail


Mercury
Yippie ki-yi-yay

Sparks Nevada
Whatever happened to "neigh"?

Mercury
Yippie ki-yi-yo

Sparks Nevada
I guess if you say so


Mercury
Two moons lighting up in the sky
They're shining down for a horse and his guy

Sparks Nevada
Still I have this tear in my eye

Together
Riding the galactic trail!
Riding the galactic trail!
Riding the galactic trail!

(Reprise)Edit

Together
Comets flying just overhead
Cares are better left unsaid
Wouldn't rather be nowheres instead
Than riding the galactic trail
Riding the galactic trail with you!
Riding the galactic trail!

Lyrics - Mortified on MarsEdit

Sparks Nevada
Out upon the crimson frontier
Where the antelope play with the gamma ray deer

Barkeep
You can't even see the Earth from up here

Sparks and Barkeep
Riding the galactic trail

Sparks Nevada
Time to leave your troubles behind
Let's don't pay 'em no nevermind

(Barkeep: Yeah, because your troubles don't include being stabbed.)

(Sparks: Come on now, sing the song.)

Sparks and Barkeep
Riding the galactic trail

Sparks
Yippie ki-yi-yay

Cookie
I'm cooking some paella

(Sparks: Really?)

Sparks Nevada
Yippie ki-yi-yo

Highwayman Dan
Hey, this here is a song I know

(Sparks Nevada: Then sing it!)

Sparks and Dan
Stars are hanging just overhead
Cares, they're better left unsaid

Highwayman Dan
Wouldn't rather be nowheres instead

(Sparks: Aww.)

Sparks, Barkeep, Dan and Cookie
Than Riding the galactic trail!

Sparks Nevada
With you

Sparks, Barkeep, Dan and Cookie
Riding the galactic trail!

Alex
With you!

(Sparks: Yeah!)

All
Riding the galactic trail!

Lyrics - M Bar PerformanceEdit

Croach
Out upon the crimson frontier
Where the antelope play with the gamma-ray deer
You can even see the Earth from up here

Both
Riding the Galactic Trail

Sparks
Time to leave your troubles behind
Let's don't pay 'em no nevermind
You and me we ain't the worrying kind

Both
Riding the Galactic Trail

Sparks
Yippie kai yai yay

Croach: I refuse to iterate nonsense syllables.

Sparks
Yippie kai yai yo

Croach: Even for my hero.
Sparks: I'm your hero?
Croach: No.
Sparks: Just checking.

Both
Stars are hanging just overhead
Cares are better left unsaid
Wouldn't rather be nowheres instead
Than riding the galactic trail

Croach: With you.

Riding the galactic trail

Sparks: With you!

Riding the galactic trail!
