lyrics

Baen ... the books we call Baen


Chorus
We've got Weber, Drake, and Ringo, and Correia and Bujold
Some of the finest stories that you've ever been told
Lackey, Flint and Kratman, Spencer and Van Name -- look for the
Dragon and the rocket ship, on the books we call Baen


Jim Baen felt the readers' hearts breaking, he heard the readers' lament
He saw other publishers taking readers' money and making no sense
So he said, "How can we satisfy their hunger, our authors can only write so fast"
Then came e-books and Baen's Bar, webscriptions and e-ARCs
A publishing house running at full blast

Chorus

Our authors compete for highest body count
And how many ways they can make Joe Buckley die
Mil-SF and fantasy, space opera, alternate history, but never enough to satisfy the 'flies
The Barflies are always armed and ready
And pretty quick to raise a hue and cry
But they keep reading all the while, and Jim looks down and smiles
From that great SF convention in the sky

Chorus


Extended Chorus
We've got Gannon, Freer, Mad Mike, Chadwick, Bova, Hoyt and Spoor
Daniel, Lee, Miller, Nye, Coe, White, Torgersen, Asaro, Zahn, and more
Taylor, Moon, Buettner, Resnick, Stone, Stirling, Lambshead, Johnson
McCaffrey, Pournelle, Norton, Niven, Turtledove and Heinlein
Our love for them now, ain't hard to explain -- look for the
Dragon and the rocket ship, on the books we call Baen
The books we call Baen
