The Lyrics

Song 5 in my "Disney Wars" collection! This isn't just for me though! Everybody can join! Check it out here:
Don’t try to fight me or you will be peeved
With some lightning I will make you wail
Your father’s changed from shmuck young Annie
To the galaxy’s most feared male

You’ll see me glower under my dark shroud
Just watch your mouth, Don’t call me “Gramp”
My face is scrunched, wrinkled, pasty and wowed
But at the dark side I’m a champ
Folks are slain!

Hey you! Skywalker jerk!
Don’t try to pressure me!
I will bring disorder
To the force
Don’t you ever mess with Palpatine
No, no, no!

Once met on Coruscant
But now the Death Star’s key
And through your nightmares I will haunt
Don’t you ever mess with Palpatine

Yes, Luke you should be nervous
Lighting shot
These stings leave scars
I’m always pissed
Covered with cysts
Worse than a dip into hot lava

You must be pretty brave
To try to attack me
Don’t think I’ll rude but you’ll be screwed
You should never mess with Palpatine

Wah! Wah! Wah!
Oh my!
Wah! Wah! Wah!
Oh no!
Wah! Wah! Wah!
No, no, no

I think murder’s bliss
Seeing victims splat
So you’ll hear me hiss as I squash you flat
Throw you to the roof
Back to the ground, Bwa ha!
I can force choke with evil laughter, neck is gripped
When I’m finished you’ll be just a smear

Now this is the last straw dumb Jedi
If you join us then you will be spared
Daddy didn’t lie, Join our side
We’ve got more power, Let that hate flare
I am a powerful scourge, Might freak you out
We can bring you fame and babes and dough
I sense your force is pretty strong, Boy Scout
But I’ll blast your ass if you say “No” so don’t!!!

Are you Skywalker hurt?
I can see you twitch and scream
No time to sob just join our mob
Don’t you ever mess with me! Never mess with me!
Don’t you ever screw with me! Never screw with me!
Don’t you ever… mess with… PALPATINE!

Bwa ha ha!
Bwa ha ha!

Don’t you ever mess with Palpatine!

(SOTM) Awesome title sub, I never would've came up with this idea in a million years! This is one of my favorite all-time songs to one of my favorite all-time Disney movies and I thought your parody was hilarious!!! It took me a few reads to get the pacing down, but it was truly fantastic!

(SOTM) Some of this was worded oddly, and some parts felt less like Palpatine and more generic-Imma-kill-you tough talk, but otherwise this was a pretty good parody. 555!

Oh man, I really have to watch the Star Wars movies, because with a title sub like that, I can only assume everything else was spot on. My favorite song from my favorite Disney movie...and yet everything else went over my head. I liked the rhymes in each line though, nice work!

Just got a wii U and started downloading all the Miis others have designed for Star Wars, Great work on yet another entry in the series Matty. Loved the subs in this. I gotta start writing again and get to at least one of the two songs I promised for the Disney series. You ever see the 'Robot Chicken' episode about Star Wars? "This is Papa-Palpatine... oh, HEY, how's my favorite Sith... what WHAT?... WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY BLEW UP THE DEATH STAR!?!?.... OH, F#&$*%&$!!!... That thing wasn't even fully paid off yet!"

SOTY...can't believe Jeff hasn't been around here...I think of him whenever anything Star Wars-y comes around. Anyway, this is perfection, Matty...pacing was fab...great lyrics...I just love it!

This is written just as a Disney villian would sing it, which I think completely fits with your Lucas/Disney concept.Very, very good!
