The Lyrics

This is from the audiobook version of R2D2's autobiograhy, but Prince narrates the text. Now since he is a robot, R2 still holds all audio input that he has recorded in his travels. He splices these sounds into the narrative as needed for dramatic impact.
Leia, yes
Until the end of time
I'm R2D2
You own my parts, no lie
I'm a droid for you
I'm the best one of my kind
A better 'bot you won't find
In any galaxy

From the first moment I saw Luke
Ooh, I knew he was The One
When we were in the cue
Of the 'Droid Lot when two suns came up
Tellin' the uncle of the schnook
C3PO's text was best
Fetch a good value in Lloyd's Blue Book
And then I was next
Luke selected me
I don't know what he paid
Was he a bit whiny?
He's not the first
Was it just sci-fi destiny?
Why ask?

Until the end of time
I'm R2D2
You own my parts, no lie
I'm a droid for you
I'm the best one of my kind
A better 'bot you won't find
In any galaxy

Here's how it started up
I heard blasting sounds
Lots of our soldiers getting all blown up
Imperial force chasin' down us
They were blasting each other
We were sure in a fix
I knew that she knew they were defeated, sadly
She knew it was serious
She recorded her video
(3PO:)"The condition we are in is fatal, fatal, R2!"
3PO is a terminal flake
Why I like him, who knows?
We took a pod, 3PO prayed to God
And we got shot into space
To that desert place
Tatooine was not really up to 3PO's fussy taste
(3PO:)"A 100 percent chance of dehydration, what disgrace!"
But nothin, buddy, I said NOTHING buddy, could slow me from my mission's pace

Do you know what I'm beepin' about this evening?
I'm just tryin' to say, I'm just tryin' to say
Until the end of time
I'm R2D2, I'm R2D2
All my parts, top of line (I am your R2)
I'm the droid for you

(Leia's:)Do you know the man Kenobi?
(Luke:) What the--what the---what the heyyyy....

Until the end of time, I'll be R2D2
Just for you
I'm R2D2...(continuously)

(Leia's Voice:)
Help me out Ben Kenobi
I know you met my father
You were Jedfi, now you can be
The Rebel Force's king
'Cause I know no brother, dear Kenobi
Nor my, nor know of Mother
You are like no other
I wish I had my druthers
Can you hear me, come with due speed
Oh wo, gotta go, old Obi Wan Kenobi

(Luke:) Ben Kenobi?

(Leia:)
Without you, we are not free

There is no more

(3PO:)This is too much, Master, I do implore
He's wild!
He's wild!

The last words I played
The last words I played
(The droid for all time)

(Luke:) Where is old Ben Kenobi?
(The droid for all time)

I'll be you robot 'til the end of time
Until the end of time
You own my parts,
But I am your guy
I'll be your best buddy
The best of all time
(Until Lucas says it's time)
For all time, I am R2
You are with me
('Til Lucas says it's time)
In the galaxy, in the galaxy

Not sure why this one had no votes but, it has one now. Hopefully, it will get some more. I referred to this parody in your tribute when I wrote, "Star Wars' R2 squealing". :-)

The force is strong with this one.

I have only been able to hear the song in-depth recently and realized there is a line missing in the choruses, twice. It is 'A ten year warranty'. I hate my proofreading skills.

Love Star Wars... I'm "meh" on Prince and this was one of Prince's worst songs. The man sounds like a helium filled balloon deflating throughout most of this. Still I can only knock the OS the parody was great!

(ABC) 555 pops, squeaks, bells, whistles, and screaches on an Adroidable song!
bobpiecheese - April 14, 2012 - Report this comment
(ABC) I have no idea what "druthers" are, but otherwise a pretty awesome parody set to an admittedly weak OS (didn't think Prince was that squeaky). And this is from a guy who hasn't seen the original trilogy all the way through. 555!

Druthers is "strength, ability." A bit archaic, though, I never heard anyone in my generation ever say it.
Porfle Popnecker - April 15, 2012 - Report this comment
The dictionary definition of "druthers" is "free choice or preference." As in, "If I had my druthers, we'd have Taco Bell instead of KFC tonight."

(ABC) Love R2D2, maybe my fav character from the original trilogy! Awesome , AWEsome, AWESOME!
Abbott Skelding - April 17, 2012 - Report this comment
Sadly, I am neither a Prince nor Star Wars fan so a lot of the content was lost on me, but it was a nice read anyway.

What Abbott said. I got dragged to Star Wars back in the day, kicking and screaming...

My favorite line is "Do you know what I'm beepin' about this evening?"
