If you don't watch
this will be a waste of time for you. You might as well go back
(Perhaps the same is true if you do watch it.)

(Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Maraes, Norman Gimbel)
(To be sung in the voice of Cynthia Torqueman)
When the Captain's day is over
Who takes command? It's Eye-va-nova
And when she's in command --
She's in C & C
Formally polite but taciturn
Eye-va-nova's got a lot to learn
How to be a great --
Who -- are you really? Commander, speak freely
How -- did you get here? You know you can tell me
Where -- do we stand with the Narn and Centauri?
How can you feel safe in this place?
I hear it's no fun breathing space
I bet you find it ironic when
All those creatures call us alien
I saw Mr. Kosh --
I think he saw me!
What -- do you think of this alien lifestyle?
Why -- do you answer my questions with that smile?
When -- your day's done can you call all this worthwhile?
It's so far to Babylon 5 --
Why should Earth care if you survive?
Who? What? Where? When? Why? and even How?
I have asked them all -- and I know now
Eye-va-nova smiled --
And held out on me...
She spoke politely...
But much too briefly...
She held out on me...
