The Lyrics

We cannot go out at night
The Raiders want to fight
Don't want to face, an angry Uncle O.
Searching and scanning
He's too far away, so we'll have to wait til morn
We found the Jawas, you see
Who sold us R2 and C3
The shots are precise, must be done by Imperial stormtroopers
What of my fam'ly
If you're going on foot, you ain't gonna get too far

Oh here he comes
Watch out droid he's catching up
Oh here he comes
In his landspeeder
Oh here he comes
Floats on sand, you'll hear the thrust
Oh here he comes
In his landspeeder

While selling I had to pout
The XP three eight's out
It's hotness man, so mine's not really in demand no more
Nothing for me here
I'm coming with you, please teach me to use the Force

Oh here he comes
Things get mean on Tatooine
Oh here he comes
In the cantina
Oh here he comes
Watch out boy, you're selling out
Never coming back
In his landspeeder...

Hee! So much to say...

First off, I have to applaud the song choice...it's one of those that gets stuck in my head for DAYS...so your parody is bound to be on my mind for a while...=)

Secondly, "Things get mean on Tatooine" KILLED me...excellent line!!

Finally, I'm giving you 5s, because it's FABulous...but if I could give you extra points for using the word "pout," I would...=) GREAT JOB! (and way to be in my Star Wars parody posting mindset...)

Jeff, have you got an ESP/Jedi mind trick thing going on with Arwen today? This was fun 555

Excellent job. I've been trying to come up with a good Maneater parody idea forever. Though I'm practically the only person on Earth who's never seen SW or any of its prequels, I found this quite amusing... so it must be good.

Kristof...total coincidence. Never talked about it, and neither of us had ever done Star Wars before. Cool, huh?
Leo: Thanks! Popped in my head when I saw the Lucas tribute the other night.

see now if i had seen the latest star wars episodes id be laughing my *ss off, but i can definitely appreciate the title and a few of the characters - see leo J, youre not the only one ;)
Rick C - June 22, 2005 - Report this comment
I still haven't seen the latest SW release but, found this fun to sing along to. 555
Jeff Reuben - June 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks everyone...and just for the record, this is entirely based on the original Star Wars (episode 4...the one from 1977)

Very good, funny and you definately know your Star Wars trivia.

Leo: I'm not that big on Golf myself to take this on fully, but the next time that Sörenstam girl or one of her friends goes at it with the men in a contest somewhere you could do the verses to this chorus:

Oh here she comes

Watch out fellas, hole in one

Oh here she comes

She's a manbeater!

Great work Jeff, all 5s.
Ashkicksass - June 22, 2005 - Report this comment
I haven't seen any of the movies either, but I gave you 5's anyway because I damn well felt like it. Oh, and also because your pacing was spot on, and I know if I knew what a landspeeder was that this would be friggin hilarious.

once again my Star Wars ignorance handicaps me here jeff, but it was fun singing it to the OS - lots of cool lines - 555

Jeff: Yet another one that cracked me up from the title onward. And you won't have to sell your landspeeder to get fives. I've tried to do a "Maneater" parody, but every time I think of Ann Coulter, I get sick and can't finish it. Peter: Hey, Annika, woman, get away from me! Hey, Annika, woman, birdie that par three! Don't come knockin' around my door until you eagle that par four! I've got more important things to do than get beat on the course by you! Leo: You've never seen ANY of the Star Wars movies? Ash lives in Utah, what's your excuse?

A great "title alone" one. 5s. Here's hoping you'll soon return, and with greater numbers.

(ABC) Hmm! Strong The Farce with you is, young Reuben-Walker!
Agrimorfee - August 16, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) Pretty good track...would work well as part of a Star Wars concept album.

(ABC) DKTOS, but from the comments must be a good OS. I liked the read.
Red Ant - August 18, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC05) Hmm, I don't remember reading this before yet I see I have commented. I agree with the previous comment though.

(ABC2005) Ha! Nice title and an enjoyable read.

(L) don't know much about Star Wars, but a great OS choice and it was funny despite my ignorance

ABC-- Well done, Jeff. I always enjoy a good SW spoof. And Hall and Oates. The Farce is strong with you.
