The Lyrics

I've been trying to do a "Star Wars" song to an Elvis tune for a while now. Looks like I'll have to borrow this one, written by Paul Anka for Frank Sinatra.
And now, the end is near
and so I face the final movie.
My friend, I'll say it clear.
I'll state my case, which is quite groovy.
I've seen them all ten times
at multiplex upon the highway.
Adventure, this I crave.
Not the Jedi way.

Regrets, I've had a few
mostly when I saw "Phantom Menace."
I did what I had to do
"Attack of Clones," it was my penance.
I planned my place in line
which now extends up to my driveway.
But patience, it is said
is the Jedi way.

Yes, there were times I'm sure my wife
said, "Come on, just get a life!"
But through it all, twenty-eight years
at least I don't wear pointed ears!
As do some Sith
but I'll get with
the old Jedi way.

I loved, I laughed and cried
from first film on, I was a rookie.
And now, with brain so fried
I can't find words, just scream like Wookie.
To think... I watched all that...
saw Lucas wit in such a dry way.
How Yoda speaks, this I do not.
Though it's Jedi way.

For what is a man, without The Force?
Turning to Dark, don't take that course!
You see these films, billions they made
'til accountants, their nerves are frayed!
Though Obi-Wan is dead and gone
follow Jedi way!

Though Obi-Wan is dead and gone...

Follow Jedi way!
Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. 'Til we meet you again, may The Force be with you. Adios.

[disengages from mind-meld with best friend] And what's wrong with wearing pointed ears? "Twenty-eight years?" "From first film on?" Dude, you must be older than I thought! I took you for someone in his mid-twenties!

It's a stretch, but so were the last three movies (and I should talk with my 'Day-O' parody...). Nice work, especially the 'up to my driveway' line and the 'wife/life' couplet.
