The Lyrics

Everyone wants to be in Star Wars, right?
He like to think that he's a Jedi
He dresses like Darth Maul
hyperspace lines on his window
He's got no life at all
He likes to sit and draw X-Wings all day,
got the pictures on the wall
His friends and family pray that it's just a fad
just a fad..


He like to think that he's a Jedi
He dresses like Darth Maul
hyperspace lines on his window
He's got no life at all
He likes to sit and draw X-Wings all day,
got the pictures on the wall
His friends and family pray that it's just a fad
just a fad..


Dear George, I finally got to writing you a letter
Tellin you how bad I wanna chance to be an extra
Shooting in Australia's much better, cause now I betcha
I can get a little part in it. I'm glad it's coming together,
so come on down under, you flannelette jet setter.
so anyways, man, E'chuta, how's it all going?
It seems like ages until your next movie's showing
I'm practicing, too- guess what I'm doing?
I'm marching like a stormtrooper
I freeze-framed it all on my computer, and I'm a terrible shooter
I've been bumping my head on stuff too, I'm good at that.
I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan
I can even watch the holiday special without running for the can
I hate Jar Jar though, what the hell was that all about, man?
Maybe to make us forget the Ewoks, too, that stuff was crap
Anyways, I hope you get this man, email back,
just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
You're the man


He like to think that he's a Jedi
He dresses like Darth Maul
hyperspace lines on his window
He's got no life at all
He likes to sit and draw X-Wings all day,
got the pictures on the wall
His friends and family pray that it's just a fad
just a fad..


Dear George, You've finished all the shooting now, and you still ain't picked me
What the hell's wrong with you, man? I even live in Sydney!
It's not like I also wanna be an action figure
or the main feature. I don't even wanna go to Tunisia!
Just wanna be up the back somewhere walkin' past
or wearing an alien mask like those guys
who always faint, but I'd last.
That just sucks man, look, I'm even saying please
cause those people can't even spell wookiee with two e's
Who are these? Man, do they even speak Huttese?
I remember with episode one, the papers said he's
angry about extras in England that ripped off stuff
I'm angry too, George, but I think you knew that.
With such a great privalege, how the hell could those guys do that?
I'd never do that to you, cause you know I respect you
but I can't fight that war for you, or even protect you
from that kinda stuff. I try to tell others to have some integrity
or you'll cut off the fans cause you'll think that we're the enemy.
I got an acting agent, had to pay a lot for the fees
but it's gonna be worth it, this will be a dream come true for me
We all wish it was real, and it looks it the way you tell it
cause I was a kid and it changed my life back in 77
And nobody collects the stuff like I do George, no one does
My parents gave you lotsa money when I was growing up
You gotta call me man, I'm here for the reshoots
Sincerely yours, man. PS:
I got my own Jedi robe too


He like to think that he's a Jedi
He dresses like Darth Maul
hyperspace lines on his window
He's got no life at all
He likes to sit and draw X-Wings all day,
got the pictures on the wall
His friends and family pray that it's just a fad
just a fad..


Dear mister don't-send-applications-go-through-an-agent
I just read where you got most of your extras!
I blew a hundred and forty bucks for nothing - I don't deserve it
But you hired all the other dirty mothers who wrote in,
that's just perfect!
So this is my cassette I'm sending you, I hope you hear it
cause I went to see Fox studios and couldn't get near it
Hey George, I got an idea for a new fan film
See this Sith and this Jedi fight with their lightsabers in a forest
and the Jedi wins. Wadday think, It's a cool concept and I'm pretty sure
it won't be a bore, cause nobody's done stuff like that before
now. If you like that idea then I've got a web page with a lot more
but you'll have to find it yourself cause this is my final call.
And all I wanted was a lousy quarter second on screen
just to get into that universe and put myself into the dream
I love those movies George, I wonder if you think about it
Cause you made it, have you felt the wonder and the dream about it
and your silence makes me think you're being so MEAN about it
and when I email I get nothing on the SCREEN about it!
See George- (hysterical scream) HEY, SHUT UP! I'm tryin' to talk!
Hey George, that's my girlfriend. She's watching Howard the Duck
and she can't reach the remote! See George, I really liked you
but now I've got no chance at all of being a part of Episode 2
Well, gotta go, I couldn't find a REAL carbon freeze
So I had to fill up my bathtub with gallons of melted cheese!

(squelch) (burble burble)

Dear Sir or Madam: thank you for your interest
and the amateur productions that you constantly submit us
Unfortunately, our policy says we cannot accept
unsolicited submissions,
so they're not reviewed or kept
We're not sure what you mean when you say we "dissed you"
You seem to think your work is such that we can't resist you
but your legal standing has a hole that Jabba could fit through,
so if you persist in this
we'll have to "cease and desist" you
It's not as though we need the fans to give us creative input
look at the Qui-Gon Jinn-ger snaps in the Darth Maul cookbook
and don't suggest that we both could make some money
because we've seen your work and frankly, it isn't all that funny.
We would, however, like you to have one of our web sites,
as long as you don't read the fine print about who owns the copyrights.
We don't need you, with your concepts, your costumes and your scripts,
artwork, fan fiction, comics and whatever this 'filk' is
we don't want to appear as a killjoy, please try and understand
there's nothing we want to ban, we really do want you as a fan.
But to work our magic, we really need to be left alone
in the ivory tower to talk to the man on the throne
We're now in post-production, and our time is totally committed
which is what YOU SHOULD BE, and GET YOURSELF A STRAIGHTJACKET FITTED!
So be reasonable now. Come on, think about it please.
We're professionals- we don't take fanboy cheese!

Fantastic. The "Howard The Duck" line is probably the funniest thing I've read on this site, ever. Wow. I can't believe I'm the first to comment; this has been here awhile.

Do I make myself look too much like a nerd if I point out that Darth Maul was a Sith, not a Jedi? But I loved the "Qui-Gon Jinn-ger snaps" line... didn't like the original much, but this parody is superb.

(Rap Parody) "Our time is totally committed, which is what YOU SHOULD BE, and GET YOURSELF A STRAIGHTJACKET FITTED!" Gold! Pure Gold!!! This was packed with ingenius rhymes and a storyline worthy of a three-hour widescreen playing! 555 and I'm glad to see fellow Aussies carving up the beats, yo.

(Rap #1) First time reading this, and I was totally impressed. This would a friggin' GREAT VIDEO if only the big E (for Ego) would let you do it! "Qui-Gon Jinn-ger Snaps", LOL! You are a high contender on my list for the 9pts. 555

I though I knew what it meant to parody a rap song, until this day. The words are spot on with the original, and the humor is such that even uncool non-Star Wars fans will not ignore this. Good this parody is. Fives it gets.

Still love it. Um, and by the way, Steven, I hope you don't mind I kinda entered this in a rap parody contest without asking you. If you do mind you have my sincere apologies but I'm counting on you just being happy to have some well-deserved attention brought to this outstanding song. I thank you in advance for your understanding.

Nice to see this is still getting laughs. Yes it did take me a little while, Eminem has a lot of complexity in his lyrics. I think it's one of my best, in terms of telling a story, hopefully being funny, matching the song AND rhyming with the original lyrics all at the same time. It's also cathartic. See, there's a grain of truth in this. I live in Sydney, and when Episode II was filmed here, the casting call really did say not to send them submissions but to use a casting agent. So I $helled out for an agent, and then they used the people that sent them blind submissions. There are a couple of other truths in the song, but that's all I'm admitting to now :) Hi to all here who remember and miss me. I'll get back here with more songs one day, promise.
