Music to My Pointy Ears

by Scott Emmons

SOME find Pavarotti a treat for the ears,
While others prefer Aguilera or Spears.
But the music that fills me with exquisite joy
Is the lyrical crooning of Leonard Nimoy.

Leonard Nimoy! Leonard Nimoy!
That singing sensation called Leonard Nimoy!

He's a little bit country, a little bit rock,
With a sensitive tone that says, ''I am not Spock!''
From New York to L.A. to Moline, Illinois,
No rival can touch Mr. Leonard Nimoy!

Leonard Nimoy! Leonard Nimoy!
That versatile vocalist Leonard Nimoy!

His C often ranges from B-flat to E,
But who needs a singer who's always on key?
That sense of suspense is the thing I enjoy.
Each song's an adventure with Leonard Nimoy!

Leonard Nimoy! Leonard Nimoy!
That wild, unpredictable Leonard Nimoy!

There are records by Shatner (though I'm not a fan).
There may even be tracks by James ''Scotty'' Doohan
And that crusty old dude who played Doctor McCoy.
But they can't hold a candle to Leonard Nimoy.

Leonard Nimoy! Leonard Nimoy!
That star among superstars, Leonard Nimoy!
Though he hasn't recorded since I was a boy,
I'm forever devoted to Leonard Nimoy!
