I Want To Be Londo Mollari

Words: Adam Goss
Music: "I Want To Be Peter Lorre" by Tom Smith

The curse of my existence is the "rogues" that I see,
I can't do much for them not doing very much for me.
They just don't seem to please, Han Solo or Hermes --
Ferengi Quark just runs a bar, and Michael Knight talks to a car.

Neelix is too silly, and Starbuck's nothing new,
Lando just replaced his friend and played for Leia, too.
No, I'll look toward a time with a gentleman sublime,
A great Centauri stallion --
(Londo's voice)
-- with a voice like Slav-Italian!

When I grow up, I want to be Londo Mollari,
I want to revel in wine and women and song,
(Londo's voice)
And with each passing hour, I shall acquire power -
An emperor I want to be even though I know it's wrong!

I want to ask for favors from Garibaldi,
I want to rule and save Centauri Prime,
I want a starring role, as the guy who sells his soul,
I want to grow up to be Londo Mollari and have a decadent time!

When I grow up, I want to be Londo Mollari,
I'll tell Morden what G'Kar does conspire.
(Londo's voice)
But then it went too far, spreading war from star to star,
And yet I cannot help myself, it will all just end in fire!

I want to spend my nights with sweet Adira,
I want to kill the monster on the throne,
And then escape my fate, just before it is too late,
I want to grow up to be Londo Mollari and reap the harvest I've sown!
(Londo's voice, spoken)
Great Maker!

(Londo's voice)
When I grow up, I want to be Londo Mollari,
I'll have the whole Narn homeworld for my toy,
And have assistant Vir, who trembles full of fear -
What is it that you want of me, you moon-faced assassin of joy?!
(tune change)
Me and my shadow, strolling down the avenue -
(Spoken) Not me but you!
Me and my shadow, without a soul to tell our troubles to!

I want to get my Keeper intoxicated,
I'll die with my soul and my conscience clean,
And when the show is through, I'll do Tron and Sliders, too,
I want to grow up to be Londo Mollari,
My three wives are gonna be sorry,
I'll be the best Londo Mollari you've ever seen!
(Londo's voice, spoken)
Vir! Don't give away the homeworld!
