Marc Gunn She Said Her Name Was Saffron 
A FuMP exclusive! In the summer of 2007, Marc Gunn was emailed about the Sing-A-Song for Saffron contest held by SerenityStuff.com, the beautiful and manipulative vixen from Firefly. She was his favorite bad guy in the show. And being in Ireland, a melody came easy. Marc wrote the song to the traditional tune "May Morning Dew". This FuMP exclusive is sung with a country accent that better captures the sound of Firefly. The original recording can be found on my upcoming CD "What Color Is Your Dragon?", out in August. Find out more about Marc Gunn at www.marcgunn.com

This song is now available on the following CDs:

I love this song even though I've never seen a single episode of Firefly....the Irish air the parody is based off of is beautiful, the lyrics to the parody are good for Valentine's Day radio shows, and lastly.... (and Shoebox will appreciate this), it's not about a cat! (Though there are many good cat songs out there). Good times all around! Awesome job, Marc.

Goddammit, Marc Gunn, shut up about your cat! (Someone had to say it)

Man, every time I hear some cool Firefly related content I get all nostalgic for the show and then get depressed knowing there won't be any more episodes. (Still hoping for more movies.) Anyway, very nice song.

Goddammit Marc Gunn, shut up about your firefly? I could've sworn you were gonna say "show her to her knees" rather than "show her the real me."

Nice song! What a voice...great hammer dulcimer stuff too. Saffron isn't a cat, is she?:)

I feel as a geeky Marc Gunn and all-around folk fan I should correct you here, Bob Em. Marc plays the autoharp, and NOT the hammered dulcimer....but hammered dulcimers are awesome too. I'm looking into learing the mountain, or lap, dulcimer, also sometimes known as the "hog fiddle" (Insert clever pun here if you've got one).

Breasts make me wheeze too. Has anyone said "I'm just mad about Saffron" yet?

Wasn't that line in a 60's song by Donovan entitled "Mellow Yellow"?

Nice comedic summary of that Firefly ep, and the punchline is priceless. I give this little ditty two FuMPs up.
