Original video
Joey:
I wanna be a Starship Ranger
I wanna have the things they've got
I could be a Starship Ranger
But there's just one little thing they are
I'm not

Brian:
All of my life I've pictured them out there
Keeping the peace in outer space
I may not be up there with them
But I've got what it takes

I've got a hunger and thirst for adventure
I wanna travel the galaxy
The future is now, so I don't see how
The time isn't right for me

Meredith:
And I'll admit
It's all in my head
But who says it can't be real?
I may be far away
But I can safely say
It doesn't change the way I feel

Dylan:
I wanna be a Starship Ranger
Even if it might sound strange
Maybe now, I'm not a Ranger
But all of that is right about to change

(Spoken) What's up New York City?

Lauren:
All of your life you've had your head stuck
Up in the gaseous atmosphere
Don't forget that dirt is solid
And clouds can disappear

When you're an insect, you have a purpose
Like it or not, from a fly to a flea
Need I remind you, leave that stuff behind
So you can find what yours can be?

Jaime:
Because the needs
Of the many bugs...
Outweigh the few
And everybody knows
It's just the way it goes
And there's nothing you can do

Joe:
You wanna be a Starship Ranger?
Discover worlds far and near
Who gives a crap about Starship Rangers?

All:
The greatest life to live is found right here

All: (Alternating)
Dirt eater!
Exoskeleton polisher!
I wanna build honeycombs!
The bug that ruins your picnic!
A fly on the wall!

All:
We've all got a job to do
And it's how we all survive
By giving our lives to the hive...

'Cause the needs
Of the many bugs...
They outweigh the few

Jaime, Lauren, Joey:
I know today's the day

Chorus:
Today's the day

All:
I will find what I'm meant to do...

Lauren:
The queen will surely see I'm not like anyone else

Joe:
She'll take one look and know my rightful calling

Dylan:
She'll understand that I just can't be
Living my life for the hive

And I can finally...

Chorus:
Finally...

Dylan:
Know what it's like to be alive...

All:
I wanna be something that can
Serve the greater good of our race
I'll do whatever I can
To make our world a better place

Joey:
If only I could get to outer space!

I wanna be a Starship Ranger
It doesn't matter at all where I'm from
So look out, Starship Rangers
Cause here I am...

Chorus:
Here I am...

Joey:
...And here I come!

Chorus: (Alternating)
Dirt eater!
Exoskeleton polisher!
I wanna build honeycombs!
The bug that ruins your picnic!

All:
It's all I wanna be!
