The Lyrics

The spoken lines should have the appropriate Yoda tone.
I'm tired of takin' advice
And flack from old Qui-Gon Jinn
I want to kill all the Jedi
Cause they're buggin' me again
My light saber burned out
Everybody's laughing at me

"Truly wonderful the mind of a child is" (spoken)

I took an acid bath
Just to prove I'm not a nerd
Make my big bad move
If you'd give the word
Cause if we mess up
They'll find out
We're only geeks

"The shroud of the Dark Side has fallen" (spoken)

Well when the credits roll
We'd better time it
Buy a big buck-et
Of gray paint to prime it
Need to build a command deck
Some curtains would be awfully sweet

"The Dark Side clouds everything" (spoken)

When they told my fortune
Tried to pass the blame
But I fooled them all
When I changed my name
Now my voice is black
A grand dis-guise for me

"The Dark Side I sense in you" (spoken)

I'm gonna take such pride
Causing others pain
Although I can't stop there
Got troops to train

Cause we all just wanna build big death stars
We'll let the credits roll
While we smoke cigars
In wider trailers
Than Lucas has seen
We'll make rude comments
Through each Jedi scene
And it's champagne time
When lasers fly
Toastin' Obi Wan
'Here's mud in your eye!'
Every rebel pilot
Will be running scared
When our sights lock on
We can split their hair

Hey, hey
I wanna build a death star
Hey, hey
I wanna build a death star

I wanna sell action figures
To Little Rascals
Sell light saber swords
To all the Eddie Haskells
Pawn a couple of our props
So I can buy a big TV

"Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose" (spoken)

I'm gonna spend my cash
On my greatest passion
Dressing all my pets
In the latest fashion
Then I'll roll right into town
I need to buy me a new Humvee

"I have a bad feeling about this" (spoken)

I'm gonna find a wife
Then give her my name
Then maybe raise some kids
Who'll bring me shame

Don't we all just wanna run big death stars
To find the rebel hideouts
Using space radar
The plots seem cheesy
When robots bleep bleep
My voice sounds wheezy
Every time I speak
So I'll cool out
While I nurse my scars
Eating bantha meat
Sneaking candybars
And I might go hunting
In my underwear
For a pod of aiwha
So they'll serve 'em rare
And I'll cruise out
To the seven moons
I'm the greatest visionary
Sure to make you swoon
I may not be handsome
But I'm awfully tall
And the girls fall for the men
Who build big space balls

Hey, hey
I wanna build a death star

In the circle of life
I am just off-center
To the summer heat
Think of me as winter
I upset balance
Cause I'm awfully strong
Epitome of might
So please don't quote me wrong

Cause we all just have to have big death stars
Sure does stroke our egos
Living in quasars
We must keep busy
'Cause we're the elite
We stock our army
With a stellar fleet
And we hang out
In a man-made star
It's a real nice place
To write our memoirs
Gonna hang a placard
Saying 'home sweet lair'
Making tons of money
From our space warfare
And we'll sound out
Like a voice of doom
Though they hardly ever hear us
Through this space vacuum
The dark side be our strength
To live darth lifestyles
And we'll rule the universe
Wearing evil smiles

Hey, hey
I wanna build a death star
Hey, hey
I wanna build a death star

Thanks Phil. And way belated thanks to Matthias, Steven, Jonathan, and Laurie. Sorry I've been so out of touch for awhile.

554, even though i am not a Star Wars geek, it was only that middle section about dressing pets that confused me.

Thanks Agrimorfee. I guess that's fair, most of the SW sequels confused me.
