Spock sings "Maiden Wine"

"Maiden Wine" was the song sung by Spock while he was being manipulated by the Platonians in 2268. (TOS: "Plato's Stepchildren")

Lyrics

Take care, young ladies, and value your wine
Be watchful of young men in their velvet prime
Deeply they'll swallow from your finest kegs
Then swiftly be gone, leaving bitter dregs
Ahh-ah-ah-ah, bitter dregs
With smiling words and tender touch
Man offers little and asks for so much
He loves in the breathless excitement of night
Then leaves with your treasure in cold morning light
Ahh-ah-ah-ah, in cold morning light
