Original Song Title:

"You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"

 (MP3)
Original Performer:

Bachman-Turner Overdrive

Parody Song Title:

"You Can't Be Boba Fett"

Parody Written by:

Arwen

The Lyrics

I love being his woman
I'd like to stay that way
He said, "I've got thoughts comin' to me"
And I said, "Okay let's play"
He said that "Movie love is good lovin'
And we ain't done Star Wars yet"
Hmmm...so, so I looked into his big brown eyes

And said:

"You can't be Boba Fett
B-B-B-Baby, you just can't be Boba Fett
That's something that you're gonna have to forget
M-Maybe Vader, but you can't be Boba Fett"

Said, "Obi-Wan is better"
I'd get with him for sure
But not that bounty hunter
For 'the mood' he's a cure"
He said that "Even clones need good love
And you haven't tried it yet"
Hmmm...but still I looked into his big brown eyes

And said:

"You can't be Boba Fett
I'll be Leia, but you can't be Boba Fett
That's something that you're gonna have to forget
How 'bout Lando? No, you can't be Boba Fett"

Though our love is good love
Oh, his wish he could not get
No, his wish he could not get
Hmmm...'cause yeah, I looked into his big brown eyes

And said:

"You can't be Boba Fett
I would pay ya, so you won't be Boba Fett
That's a dream that you're gonna have to forget
Even Jar-Jar, but you can't be Boba Fett"

Well, I was JUST listening to this OS last night - trying to find a way to finish a parody I started with it many moons ago...had too many components to my story to fit within the song length...boo-hoo...but I don't know squat about "Star Wars"...hmmm...actually I DO know a small amount of squat about it...but I never watched any of it...so I just know a few names and somewhat of an overview...honest... never cared one way of the other - A good read, though...OH...I guess since the pace is good and the read is good...nah...I'd have to know who "Boba Fett" was to get it...so I can't really vote here...so much vacillating...you'd think "World Peace" was hanging in the balance, waiting for my vote...

I'm more of a LOTR guy myself. (check out 'My Precious' if you get a chance). Your idea and the title really killed me. I always liked this OS and your pacing was a real delight. I might have to step back, you're right, there are probably 100's if not 1000's of Star Wars songs out there. But I'll still give you top 5 of any that I have read. (LandSpeeder was another good one this week)

I never understood the appeal of Boba Fett. But I understand the appeal of this parody. I think the problem with a woman wanting Boba Fett (and now Darth Vader as well) is that we've now seen them as little boys. Which is why I've never drooled over Alyssa Milano. Funny, I never had that problem with Drew Barrymore once she grew up, but then, I always thought that if I made a move on Alyssa, Tony Danza would beat me up. Patrick: I have to admit, my distaste for Tolkein aside, "My Precious" kind of grew on me. Or is that creeped up on me?

Michael...although I watched the shows endlessly as I child, I honestly never knew who Boba Fett was until I was in college. I'm sure that as a kid, I just thought of him as the bad guy who got eaten by the ground monster thing...hehehe. Anyway, for once, it seems, I agree with you...no appeal. They should've looked into casting Mr. Diesel as Jango...I might be singing a different tune... =) Thanks!

(SOTM) I guess you could have repeated the chorus a little more at the end, but I also guess you got in the mood and wanted to get into that gold bikini as quickly as possible. (Any pictures BTW?).

Michael Pacholek: I think that the appeal of Boba Fett is/was partially that unlike charachters with facial bumps via rubber masks and the like, anyone heading for a SF Convention could hammer up his own Bobba Fett Helmet in the Garage, and also take if off and just carry it under the arm since noone after eppy 4-6 still knew what he'd look like. Though, that's just my guessing.
Tim Mayfield - July 13, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Love the idea behind this parody. The Jar-Jar line cracked me up. I had to read it through a second time to fully appreciate the brilliance displayed herein. For some reason I imagine apples carved with Boba's image floating in a tub of water would be FABulous at Halloween - "Bobbing for Boba", then you can say Boba's all wet, too. Join the dark 5's.

Fun facts: (1) Boba Fett's first appearance was in the horrible 1978 TV "Star Wars Holiday Special." (2) It was actually me in a costume. (3) Clearly, Arwen won't let me wear it anymore. (4) Since she won't entertain my fantasies, I'm relegated to dressing up the neighbors' dogs like Ewoks. Frisky little buggers.

(5) I love love love this. Especially the last line. Movie love is good love, indeed. (And Stevenagh: "Fettish" - heh heh.)
