The Lyrics

This parody was written in response to the news that Disney has bought out Lucasfilm. As ever, I hope you enjoy, and may the Force be with you.
Have you heard that Lucasfilm,
Has just been giv'n away.
The films will live forever more,
All thanks to Walt Disney.

Short time ago in Hollywood,
So all the media say,
The company Lucasfilm was bought by Disney.

Have you read what the papers say,
A deal was struck today.
Star Wars'll live forever more,
Because of Walt Disney.
And they will keep up the franchise,
N'mber VII is on the way.

Each Disney princess will get a fright,
When they meet Princess Leia.
And they will wonder what is wrong,
When they hear about the Death Star.

Have you read what the papers say,
A deal was struck today.
Star Wars'll live forever more,
Because of Walt Disney.


For a moment the films had to go,
But when the deal was struck it was happily ever after.
Lucas is ousted, now on with the show,
More films will still be released.

Now Lucas and all his team, have given up the rights,
When they heard, all the fans went wild.
In expectation and delight.
When VII's out on DVD, there'll be a new one out before long.
And in a galaxy far away, the franchise will live on.

Have you read what the papers say,
A deal was struck today.
Star Wars'll live forever more,
Because of Walt Disney.
And they will keep up the franchise,
Number VII is on the way.

All the fans in the world want to go,
and then Disney will fill their hearts with joy and laughter.
Ticket sales will rocket, you know,
The number of fans will increase.

Oh dear George,
Not more toy lightsabers.
Oh good George,
And the rebels again will save us,
Oh good George,
The Empire will not enslave us, and the force will win once more.

Oh dear George,
Please no more gaps to fill in,
Oh dear George,
No going back to the Falcon,
Oh dear George,
No more plight of Anakin, or the eternal war.

Oh dear George,
You have fan's admiration,
Oh dear George,
What a superb occasion.
Praise the Force,
And fill us with elation,
The news makes us really glad.

(These films will last forever)
Oh dear George (Darth Vader and Maul)
The alliance will find you.
Oh dear George (succeed with this endeavour).
Now filming can start anew,
Oh my George (praise the Force)
These films would fail without you,
The ending was so sad.

Oh dear George, (what a reward)
with help from new co-operations.
Oh dear George (and a critical reception)
Fill us will adoration
Praise the Force (Disney's on board),
To help with the new creation,
This venture can't be bad.

Oh dear George, (Praise the Force)
From bankruptcy this'll save us,
Oh dear George (years to enjoy the films together)
This deal you made for us.

Good idea, Christopher. Don't know why somebody felt strongly enough to lay 111s on you. Don't worry, I've had a few.

I knew Mary's Boy Child (Belafonte version) but I never listen to Boney M (or watch the Star Wars franchises) so I had to go to OS, as it's two songs in one (you should have indicated on the title, and also provided a link to the song, if possible).

You made some good substitutes but syllable count and stress rhythms don't match here and there, so I think straight 3s is fair, not that the voting is so important anyway. Also, I think the topic is a little too narrow for such a long song and as a result your ideas tend to be recycled by the final verses.

Not trying to be critical, just giving helpful feedback for better future parodies, I hope.
