VEDEK BAREIL (THEY CALL ME!)


As you doubtlessly know from listening to the show it's no great secret that we have a soft spot for tragically short-lived Bajoran spiritual leader, Vedek Bareil Antos. Ever since first popping up in conversation way back during our third episode, he's become a go-to running joke and - some would say - beloved podcast mascot. Well, in honor of the close of our first full year of podcasting we have decided to gift unto all of you a secret project that has been long under construction. The way we figure it, all great heroes deserve an anthem. And now, thanks to Subspace Transmissions, Vedek Bareil has his!

Lyrics:

Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil
Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil
They Call Me!
Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil

First son of Bajor/ Arm 'round the major
Prophet chosen playa/ Snuff Cardassian danger
Hot like a bout of the Zanthi fever/ Voices from the temple and I'm the receiver
Let me take your pagh and make you a believer
Vedek to the people, and never a deceiver
Cuz I got flowers in my garden, and my heart'll never harden
Step up on the Springball court/ Guess what? You'll be smartin'!
Startin' to feel my flow (Yeah you know)/ Like watching a Feloran Bromeliad grow
Do I trust Sisko? I dunno/ But cray-cray Kai, batty Winn gotta go!

Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil
They Call Me!
Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil

Hey there girl/ Look into my orb
Think about all/ The love you could absorb
I get down, yo/ Like a Gratitude Fest
No life support, don't need no rest
Like Philip Anglim, forever best
Save your positronic implant, me I'm blessed!
Resurrect myself, no stress no mess no jest
Monastery to the mic/ My spiritual quest
Rhymes from the soul to make you all heal
Power in the words, the Opaka ideal
Dukat, you a fool cuz I keep it Ba-real
Spinning records till dawn like a dabo wheel!

Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil
They Call Me!
Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Vedek Bareil
Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Bareil/ Ba-Ba-Bareil

  1. Sorry. No one would call him a beloved podcast mascot. With a little luck, this is the last time we hear about him for a while!
