"The United Servo Academy Men's Chorus Hymn" is a song from Mystery Science Theater 3000 that appears in the sixth season episode The Starfighters during the fourth host segment. A parody of NPR music shows and chorale groups, the song and "chorus" is introduced by Mike. The Chorus, directed by Thomas "Bullhead" Servo, consists of several Servo heads (presumably from his many clones) atop uniformed plastic bodies; Servo's multitracked voice provides the melody and harmonies. At the end of the sketch, Mike thanks the chorus for their song, only for them to start up a more undignified, slightly naughty song for a finale.
The sketch concept, complete with bawdy ending, would be revisited in Quest of the Delta Knights with a madrigal chorus instead.
The lyrics of the Hymn itself are borrowed from several popular songs and jingles that invoke flight or the sky, no matter how loose the connection. This song, though popular, is one of the few to be left off of the Clowns in the Sky compilation, presumably due to the copyrights of the songs involved.
- Here's to the guys and gals who like to fly
- Flying so high with some guy in the sky
- Sky rockets in flight, afternoon delight!
- Captain High at your service
- Servo: Would you like to fly in my beautiful balloon?
- Take these broken wings and learn to fly me to the moon!
- Sail on silver bird,
- Have you ever heard that the bird is the word?
- In a big country, dreams stay with you
- Come along with me Lucille in my merry Oldsmobile
- We are kids for saving Earth
- We are fans of Colin Firth
- Off we go to yonder blue
- We really move our tails for you!
- Servo: Cross the wide Missouri!
