Original Performer:

Eric Idle

Parody Song Title:

"Come On Luke, Join The Dark Side Of The Force"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

Monty Python meets Star Wars...

Minor pacing note: there's an extra syllable in the parody title, 'cause the word "Side" is always sung with two in the OS.
Oh, Luke, do not be mad
When I tell you I'm your Dad
Honest, it's a blessing, not a curse
Though I missed the whole palaver
Of being there as father
Gotta say things could be so much worse, so

Come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Tries to whistle through respirator}
Come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Whistle..ish}

The Dark Side's jolly rotten
In case you had forgotten
It's fun just doing nasty evil things
When you're bad and feeling low
You just nuke 'em 'till they glow
And glorify in carnage and then sing:

Oh, come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Husky whistle}
Come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Emphysemic whistle}

Forget that Obi-Wan
Just an Obi-wanker, man
Forget that green and pointy-eared freak
No feelings of remorse
On the dark side of the force
Those goody-goody Jedi are just weak

Oh, come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Asthmatic whistle}
Come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{Near-death-rattle whistle}

It's better for your health
To think only of yourself
Leave those rebels, sure that they can cope
And join me, as a man
It's all in the Emperor's plan
(Though he looks a lot like the new Pope)

Oh, come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
Come on, Luke, join the Dark Side of the Force
{repeat with ad-libbed persuasion, til the final cut}
Hmm... security code "9CC" - I guess 10cc would be four digits

Was so tempted to put in the couplet: "Life's a piece of Sith/When you're dyslexic"... what do you thnk, guys? (is the corny pun worth the awful rhyme?)
Thanks, everyone

Phil, you're damn right that pun is worth the not-quite-rhyme. I was expecting this parody would contain a noteworthy substitute for that OS lyric.

Imagining Vader attempt to whistle is somewhat like imagining him playing cheerfully with a kitten

Oh, and since no-one has mentioned it yet, kudos for the brilliant observation of how much the new Pope looks like Emperor Palpatine!

hey Phil, nice one :) i made a vid recently that is quite similar to your idea here. it's NOT a rip-off though as i didn't know your parody until 10 minutes ago. i just had about the same basic idea almost five years later than you did - it's obviously not that easy to do something new nowadays :( if ur interested in my version, google for 'always look on the dark side of the force'; it's on Vimeo. greez & keep up the fun!
