The Lyrics

This is the third entry (but sixth song) in my Dark Side of the Force album parody. Palpatine convinces Anakin (or "Ann-aaay") to join the Dark Side.
[Death Star blowing up]
[Lightsaber being turned on]
[R2D2 beeping]
[Jar Jar Binks saying "Me-sa"]
[Yoda saying the word, "Force"]
[Darth Vader saying "Luke"]
[Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) saying the word, "Force"]

(Repeat sound effects; the main riff plays in 7/4 time)

**Palpatine, singing**
Ann-ay, use the Force
Get yourself a brand new horse, evil of course
Ann-aaaaay, join the Dark
Go by Darth, be a jerk, and make a star
Death Star, evil czar, Dark Side bad guy
Think you'll destroy those damn Jedis

Ann-ay, wear black
Become a hack, betray Ben behind his back
Ann-aaaaay, be a Sith
Don't give me that do goody good bull****
You'll be the black-suit emperor, bad-ass temper-er Sith
And you'll be a son of a... gun

[Bar band saxophone solo in 7/4 time]

[Bar band guitar solo in 4/4 time]


[Back to the main riff in 7/4 time]

Ann-aaaay, it's a crime.
Fight Obi-Wan but don't make him make the Sith cry
Ann-aaaaay, make 'em say
You're the root of all evil today.
And if you wear a black suit, you'll do no good, won't you
Be a Sith today, today, today, todaaaay

[A drunk alien at the bar and Jar Jar Binks are telling Anakin hot he once beat up Mace Windu]

**Drunk Alien**
Uh huh! I was in the right!
Yes, absolutely in the right!
Mace certainly was in the wrong!

**Jar Jar Binks, drunk**
You-sa was definitely in the right. Mace Windu was cruisin'-sa for a
Bruisin'-sa!

**Drunk alien**
Yeah!
Why does anyone use the stupid Force anyway?

**Anakin**
I don't know, I was really young at the time!
I was just nine years old, he couldn't fight that Darth Maul dude. I was doomed.

**Drunk alien**
Why Mace didn't zap me to infinity, I guess I will never know.
Some green guy was telling him why he shouldn't fight back with me

**Anakin**
I think that green dude's name was Yoda, but let's not talk about him now...

Eh Chris, this turned out pretty weak compared to the other ones. Sorry.

Pretty good Chris.

Great pacing, and pretty funny. I thought that it was a good parody. Very detailed intro, but must we know the time signature to the song? It's ok though. 545

I know, guys, "Money" is a tough song to parody, because of the time signature and the clever rhyme scheme. Plus, it's hard to rhyme with "Force" or "Sith." So that explains some of the bizarre rhymes that I threw into this parody. Now, I really need to make my "Us and Them" parody a strong one, or the parody album will suffer; I need something lyrical, dramatic, serious, and somewhat humorous for the song -- it's one of my favorites on the album.

Itsa good, Chris-sa! For what little one could do with the lyrics, you made up for it with the dialogue. 555
