Several of the songs on this soundtrack have lyrics.

Battlestar Operatica

  • The lyrics for this song are sung in Italian.
Woe upon your Cylon heart
There’s a toaster in your head
And it wears high heels

Number Six calls to you
The Cylon Detector beckons
Your girlfriend is a toaster

Woe upon your Cylon heart
Alas, disgrace! Alas, sadness and misery!

The toaster has a pretty dress
Red like its glowing spine
Number Six whispers
By your command

Wander My Friends

  • The lyrics for this song are sung in Irish by Irish singer Lillis Ó Laoire. This track was played at the conclusion of The Hand of God during the celebration after the pilots' return to Galactica.
(in Irish)
Siulaigi a chairde, siulaidh liom
Mar cheo an tsleibhe uaine ag
imeacht go deo
D’ainneoin ar dtuirse leanfam an tsli
Thar chnoic is thar ghleannta
go deireadh na scrib’

Seo libh a chairde is canaidh liom
Lionaigi’n oiche le greann is le sport
Seo slainte na gcarad ata imithe uainn
Mar cheo an tsleibhe uaine,
iad imithe go deo

(English translation)
Wander my friends, wander with me
Like the mist on the green mountain, moving eternally
Despite our weariness, we'll follow the road
Over hills and valleys, to the end of the journey

Come on my friends and sing with me
Fill the night with joy and sport
Here's a health to the friends who have gone from us
Like the mist of the green mountain, gone forever

Kobol's Last Gleaming

  • The lyrics for this song are sung in Latin.
All of this has happened before
And all of this will happen again
So say we all


  • The lyrics for this song are sung in Latin. It was played over the chaotic events at the end of the Season 1 finale, Kobol's Last Gleaming (2).
Though the outcome favored the few
It led to a confrontation
At the home of the Gods

Main Title (UK Version)

  • The lyrics for this song are in Sanskrit—they are the Gayatri mantra, the most revered mantra in Hinduism. This was the UK main theme song for season 1, and as of S2E01 it became the main theme of the US version as well.
OM bhūr bhuvah svah
tat savitur varēnyam
bhargō dēvasya dhīmahi
dhiyō yō nah pracōdayāt

  • This can be translated in many different ways, and one of the possible translations is:
O earth, atmosphere, heaven:
May we attain that excellent glory of Savitr the God:
So may he stimulate our prayers
