The Lyrics

May the force have mercy on my soul...(It was just about a year ago...A galaxy far away...)
Ran into Ben Kenobi
somewhere in Coruscant
He said, "Now, what's your name, girl?
Also, what do you want?"
And when I answered, "Lei-ya"
He said that he'd love to
Oh, Lord
F#%kin' a Jedi again

Makin' my way to Naboo
Ran into Anakin
He said, "Now, what's your name, girl?
And how much for some sin?"
I answered, "Amidala"
He said, "Then I'll take two"
Oh Lord
F#%kin' a Jedi again

Waitin' for my Wookiee friend
Here come little Yoda's butt
He said, "Now name what is your?
And for fun you do what?"
When I said, "Han Solo"
He said, "Now, that won't do"
Oh Lord...............
..............Checkers with Yoda again
Yeah I know it's missing a verse, but I think it's plenty long enough.

Yo-da MAN!

Now, I don't know the original, but this made me laugh, big time :-)

PS... Claude - would you mind if I recorded "You Ate Somebody's Pet"? I was listening to the original, and kept singing your chorus over the top - reckon it'd work pretty well.

Spaff, that may be the worst joke anybody's ever put on here.

Good work Claude

Hey thanks everyone--Sorry it took so long to respond but I just got back from vacation. (I was actually hoping Chuck would reject this--I wanted to use "Schtupp" instead, plus some other changes) Anyway, Phil, if you're serious, I'd be honored. Thanks again all.

Claude: I agree that "Schtuppin' a Jedi again" is great - and is easier to get past the censors. Michaelopedia: That's quite a compliment, considering some of the puns you're responsible for.

I'm considering some of these for live performance at an open mike that I hang out at. Would you mind if I played this? (Gonna change it to "Doin' a Jedi") No money involved, sorry. And by the way, how old are you?
Claude Prez - October 31, 2003 - Report this comment
Well first of all, thanks Rick; it's quite a compliment that anyone would want to use any of my stuff. Thanks for asking; of course feel free and change whatever you like. Also I'm 37.

My plan is to play it on the guitar with mari doing the first 2 verses, the I'd sing the last with her in harmony. I'll let you know where they laugh the most. I asked about age because I read somewhere here that a "Claude" was very young. Guess it was a joke. Also, my mom and best friend worked for the P.O.

That was my mistake Rick, I was getting Claude confused with Leb- 15, who is a teenager.

I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed your parody Claude!

Well, Claude. Mari and I performed "Jedi" tonight. I also plugged the site to all my coffeehouse buddies. We changed the line to "stuck with a Jedi" cause it's a family place. The biggest laughs happened on the line "Then I'll take two" Also got laughs for my bad Yoda impression on his lines, which I think distracted from the "Han Solo" gag. Some people didn't get it. Thought you'd like to know that you got to be first. I also gave a copy of Bob Gomez' "Where Bryant Sleeps Tonight" to an acappella group that was there. Sometimes the humor in a parody is in a very different place when performed vs being read. you have to experiment a little. Mari also played Snow White for my new one "I Don't Like Sneezy". They liked the line about doin' em all in. There's some John Denver fans there, so I'm considering "Ain't Got Me a Bungee Cord", and a couple of Phils'.

Rick: Thanks; the idea that someone would want to perform something I wrote blows my mind. I truly appreciate it. Sorry it didn't go over better; I actually write these thinking of how they'll read rather than sound so that makes sense. Let me know if you do the John Denver one (even if they hate it). Thanks again.

Sorry I gave you the impression it didn't go over. It was fine. I just thought some people didn't catch the Han Solo gag because they were caught up in my bad Yoda impression. I think it should slow down or add a pause to let people catch up. This is why I play my originals for this bunch. If a laugh doesn't happen where you think the funniest part is, you need to find out why. Also you discover that people like parts you didn't even know were funny. I wrote one about Elvis that required a rhyme for "hips". So I invented a restaurant named "Bip's", a very cheap lyrical device. It gets a laugh every time, and I don't know why. That's one of the reasons I want to do some of these I find here. I want to know if what cracks me up others laugh at. I like the "dark" humor, but sometimes you play it and people say "That's mean". One thing I may do is perform three different parodies of the same song, see which goes over best. I doubt if any of us are the best judges of our own material. I'll keep you in the loop.

The Farce is obviously with you, Claude Prez-Walker.....
Mari D - November 07, 2003 - Report this comment
Claude, here's some feedback from the lead singer. It did go over well -- no comment on Rick's Yoda impression. Some people didn't know "Lodi" and didn't appreciate your parody as much as the ones who did, but they thought that it was cool anyway. Note to Rick: Phil's going to get you for your apostrophe mistake! : )
