The Lyrics

I want to see someone make a music video to this. It would be absolutely hilarious.
Now I'm Chancellor of the senate
A full time job, you see
I've reached the top and had to stop
I don't like Democracy
I wanna be emp'ror, Ani
And bring a time of peace
I'll help you with your girlfriend too
And make sure she isn't deceased

Oh, An-i-kan
Be a Sith like me
You wanna choke like me
Gloat like me, see?
And laugh e-vil-y
A Jedi like you
Can play the fool "prentice to-o me!

(Gee, Palpatine
You're a real honest guy

Now here's your part of the deal, Ani
Join me on the darkside and we'll get peace

But I heard the darkside's bad)

Now you don't back out one me, Ani
Your girlfriend's gonna die
See in your head, That Padme's dead
So give Darkside a try
Join up with me now, Ani
I gave you reasons why
Give me your sabre, or she'll die in labor
So I can tell you "Rise!"

Me!
Be a Sith like me
You wanna choke like me
Gloat like me, see?
And laugh e-vil-y
Jedi like you
Can play the fool
Like a guy like you
Wrecks Jedi school
Like change name to
Darth Vader, dude!
Like someone like me!

I love a good Star Wars parody. DTKOS, but enjoyed reading this!

Thank you. It's from Disney's "Jungle Book" if you ever want to hear it. If you know the song, it makes the whole thing more ridiculous. Just imagine that after the second verse, Obi-wan comes into the room disguised as an imperial guard and starts scatting with Palpatine and swing dancing with him.

Very good work here, John. Enjoyed the rhyme scheme and the idea. Especially liked "Give me your sabre, or she'll die in labor". I think with one more rewrite this would be amazing. There were several areas where the pacing was either slightly off or the original rhyme scheme wasn't carried over. Also, I kept wondering what the backup singers would be singing. Like I said, very good but I think with one more rewrite it could be amazing.

The song was good, but the mental image of Palpatine as an orang-utan singing to a Mowgli-like Anakin is truly sublime. This would make an awesome video :-)

The problem is, when I looked up the lyrics to this song, they either don't have what the chorus is saying or what they say is so weird that without hearing the song, you would be hard pressed to parody it. I unfortunately do not have a copy of the song, nor can I download one due to campus firewalls. I thought it would be best to leave that to the readers imagination.
