The Lyrics

This 50th parody is gonna be my 2nd Star Wars song. It covers Episodes I, II, & III! This one is a view from Obi-Wan Kenobi!
(Episode I):
A small boy was raised in Tatooine
His name is Anakin, and he met a queen
Her name's Amidala, and she's so precious
Anakin made his podracer go fast
In the race

Chorus:
Anakin grew up to be Darth Vader
I used to be his Jedi Master
He last said "goodbye" to his mother
Before he made his Jedi skills better

(Episode II):
Ten years later, he fought in battles
He married his girl in a Naboo chapel
They hoped to keep up with their marriage
After he became a great Jedi apprentice
In his life

Chorus:
Anakin grew up to be Darth Vader
I used to be his Jedi Master
He last said "goodbye" to his mother
Before he made his Jedi skills better

(Episode III):
In the lava world, he betrayed
And joined the Dark Side, I have to say
I said to the boy, "You were like a bro to me
You've betrayed the Jedis and you've hurt me
And your wife"

Chorus:
Oh! Anakin grew up to be Darth Vader (oh yeah yeah)
I used to be his Jedi Master
He last said "goodbye" to his mother
Before he made his Jedi skills better


I can picture a music video of this parody. The ending of that video would have Obi-Wan and Jar Jar Binks leading a group of people carrying the coffin with Amidala in it, because she died of childbirth in Episode III.

Solid Star Wars parody, raddog. And happy 50th, that's quite a milestone! I daresay 5's.

Thanks for blowing the ending of Episode III, pal! Just for that... Rosebud is the sled! Soylent Green is made of people! Rhett leaves Scarlett and he doesn't give a damn! Tessio is the traitor! And in "Pride of the Yankees," the guy has to retire from baseball because he gets Lou Gehrig's Disease! (Uh, Mike, "the guy" WAS Lou Gehrig. Didn't you kinda see it coming? With apologies to "Friends.") Anyway, this was a pretty good parody. Your men do quite well at work.

I'm a Star Wars fan!! All lyrics made perfect sense! I love how you made narrations on 3 SW episodes. Well put! Is there a parody where you wrote about Luke Skywalker somewhere? How much time did you put writing that parody? 555!

Thank you for your good comment and score on this parody! But I have not written any parody about Luke Skywalker. However, I did write a Star Wars parody called "Amidala", originally "Abacab" by Genesis.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
