The Lyrics

A couple of days ago Rex did a parody about the next Star Wars movie. I thought it was great, but I wondered, what about doing a parody from Amidala's point of view? This is what happens when I answer my own questions. Here is a link to the original lyrics I referred to.http://www.letssingit.com/?http://www.letssingit.com/bonnie-tyler-i-need-a-hero-4h3lc5d.html
Where have the council gone and where are all the Jedi?
What's that Anakin? You've turned them all to spaghetti?
Not exactly a white knight, uh, black is more your speed.
It's not right! Why'd you turn? I really thought you were what I need.

I need a Jedi
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
You gotta be kind
And you gotta be wise
And not let the dark side cloud your mind.
I need a Jedi.
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
It has to be you.
You're my only true love.
You've just got to be the chosen one!

Somewhere after midnight
You impregnated me.
Now I must escape your reach.
Oh my fate is now sealed for me.
Racing to Alderon to protect my family.
Love is gone, darkness grows and you're Darth Vader finally.

I need a Jedi
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
You gotta be kind
And you gotta be wise
And not let the dark side cloud your mind.
I need a Jedi.
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
It has to be you.
You're my only true love.
You've just got to be the chosen one!

I need a Jedi
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind

-Musical instrumental-

Now the showdown has begun, and you face Obi-Won.
Lightsabers flash and you two clash.
Oh my! You know that lava gave you
quite a rash.

The Empire is born, and you're to blame.
Stormtroopers will march
I can feel your approach
Alas we're not a match.

I need a Jedi
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
You gotta be kind
And you gotta be wise
And not let the dark side cloud your mind.
I need a Jedi.
Oh you used to be my hero, but you're not what I had in mind
It has to be you.
You're my only true love.
You've just got to be the chosen one!

Well unknown voter, I must admit that you are probably right in your assessment of my song. No comments and only your vote. I'll at least thank you for doing that much even though the vote is not the type I would like to receive.

Here, Kim. I'm kind enough to leave a comment as you have on my parodies. The pacing's good, and the humour was good enough for me to realise this is about Star Wars (i'm not into it, but i could see the links you made) and it was quite well written. Try not to let anonymous voters get to you, I know they're annoying, but when you consider some of the comments i've recieved lately, sometimes it's best if they don't leave any! lol! well done! 333
