The Lyrics

On November 25, Inthe00s called for parodies mocking the sale by George Lucas of his Star Wars franchise to the Disney organization. I'm late in responding for two reasons. First, on that date I was still in my self-imposed one year exile. Second, I've never been able to access Inthe00s. BTW, I've used Billy Joel's version of TOS from the 1991 video Simply Mad About The Mouse. ;D



(Verse)
Some things are so wrong
That they're hard to write about,
But here is a song
Of how George Lucas - became a big sell-out.


(Chorus)
Disney bought the Star Wars rights.
Chip and Dale - now Jedi knights.
You'll see more disturbing sights
On D.T.V.
Guess who's going to play Luke?
Miley Cyrus! I may puke!
This deserves a strong rebuke.
It's travesty.

The next star
The boss of Disney thinks
Just may be Jar-Jar Binks
And that's appalling!

Why did George sell his franchise?
O's new taxes made it wise.
That's why Gore sold - I surmise -
Cur-rent TV.


(Instrumental break - bridge to a final tag)


Disney has one final plan:
They'll pair Yoda with Lohan.
Give them all a repriman'!
Show no mer-cy!







Not especially "artistic", but sometimes Tin Pan Alley can show eloquence of a sort. ;D

The farce is with this one....Practically perfect in every way, OMR!

George Lucas is a better marketer than writer or director, so it was inevitible that the franchise would be sold, especially when he refused to do at least one more trilogy. His original "Journal of the Whills" was supposed to be 12 movies. Perhaps Disney will improve the series- all it takes is a good director, a big budget, a great conceptual visualizer, and new SPFX (which are easier due to greenscreen and CGI). Anyway-555!

The first little bit I don't know, so can't fairly judge. 555 for the rest.
