The Lyrics

An artistic depiction of the opening events in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Long ago in a galaxy
Far away we had to
Get away
From a star destroyer that was following me
We're on the lam
With the Death Star's plans
So now we're in flight
But that Darth Vader has us in his sights!

Stuck by tractor beam (oh no!)
Form the assault teams!
The Tantive IV is captured
C-3PO and R2-D2
Get off the ship and go find Obi-Waaaaaaaaaaaan!
Tantive IV...
Tantive IV...

Now stormtroopers got through
The doorway but R2
Got away
In an escape pod down to Tatooine
Darth Vader's might
Force choked Captain Antilles tight
But Princess Leia swore
We don't have the droids you're looking for!


Now hurry please
The Tantive IV is being seeeeeeeeeeeeized!
Get down to the planet and go
Obi-Wan you are my only hoooope!
Tantive IV...Tantive IV (x2)
Ben Kenobi, Tantive IV (x2)
Tantive IV (x3)
It's like false-pacing, Weird Al style but not as good as Weird Al...because no one is as good as Weird Al.

I agree no one's as good as Weird Al when it comes to parodies, but this one was great. I like Star Wars, and I will give 5s straight across to this parody.

Welcome back! Sadly I don't remember you since I just started writing here this year, but you're really good! Don't know too much about Star Wars, but this gets a 555.
