The Lyrics

The day before meeting C-3PO and R2-D2 and beginning the adventure of his life, Luke Skywalker walked out to watch the double sunset and sing about his life...
For 20 years of age
I’ve grown up on Tatooine
We’re off the central stage
Outer Rim, you see,
I want to go and see a battle and join the Academy
With Biggs I can fly free

Though I got a lot of dents on my speeder
And a lot of sand in my sheets
Don’t wanna be an ol’ moisture farmer
All this boredom really taxes me
I want to see other systems
But in the end don’t wanna be
Here on Tatooine

I’m done with this sand world
I think I’ve seen it all before
From the Banthas in the wilds
To Tosche’s station store
And life isn’t that fun or easy
It’s farm chore after chore
Oh no,

Sure, I got a lot of dents on my speeder
And a lot of sand in my sheets
Wanna be a top-ace star pilot
But my uncle keeps on warning me
“You got too much of your father,
We need you here right now, Luke, please
Here on Tatooine
Not off on Naboo”

Sometimes I just stare
At the double sunset eve
I dream and hope and dare
Of what life could really be
Cause I know in my heart that truly adventure’s what I seek
Oh,
And I wish I could believe

Even though I got a lot of dents on my speeder
And a lot of sand in my sheets
I won’t become an ol’ moisture farmer
All this boredom really taxes me
I want to see other systems
And in the end don’t wanna be
I got a lot of dents on my speeder
And a lot of sand in my sheets
Gonna be a top-ace star pilot
For my destiny is flying free
I want to see other systems
And in the end don’t wanna be
Here on Tatooine

(Aunt Beru yells for Luke to come inside)

Coming, Aunt Beru

As a side note of some importance to Warsies, please read the SW novel "Lost Stars" by Claudia Gray. It was released in 2015 as prelude to TFA with Rey. In it are possibly her parents, neither of which have any association with the Skywalkers or the Solos. But the Force brought them together from childhood to bitter war fighting on opposite sides. Both are also excellent fliers. Claudia based her character of Ciena Ree on British actress "Gugu" Mbatha Raw. Compare this pic to Rey:

Good choice for Rey's mother. Her father would be Thane Kyrell. To catch up on the story, please watch the Manga Webcomic of Lost Stars in 4 parts or the 2 minute short summary here:
https://youtu.be/w1S6j5s61Hg
Ciena was born in 11 BBY and Rey was born in 15 ABY, so her mother would have been 26 at Rey's birth and Rey is 19 in TFA (34 ABY). Ciena would be 45 by then. Episode IX is set 10 years later in 44 ABY so Rey will be 29 and her mother 55. Rumors of Ahsoka Tano being in Ep IX seem to be bogus. She would be 80 years old!!!
