The Lyrics

I realised that I have a recording of this on amiright but hadn't put the lyrics up
Goodbye Qui-Gon Jinn, though we hardly knew you at all,
We knew the Jedi had to die, and you were the first to fall.
You fell into invasion, when the droids attacked Naboo
Someone had to save the queen, and the task was up to you

And it seems to me, they took your life
With a saber in the ribs
After fighting like a master
With an evil Sith
And I would have liked to see you
Train the little kid
Your padawan showed him the Force
And so I guess you did

You taught us lots of stuff, stuff like how to kill battle droids
And get rich by gambling, with the lives of little boys
And even when you died, you made millions of us say "Hey,
I just don't get it- why didn't his body fade away?

And it seems to me, they took your life
With a saber in the ribs
By a Sith Lord for the first time
In a thousand years.
And I would have liked to see you
Train the little kid
Your padawan showed him the Force
And so I guess you did

Goodbye Qui-Gon Jinn, though we really liked you and all,
You had the chance to save yourself, but you couldn't match Darth Maul.
Goodbye Qui-Gon Jinn, from the fanboy in the 22nd row
Who gets a little sentimental about hippy Jedi long ago

And it seems to me, they took your life
With a saber in the ribs
You were fighting like a master
But you couldn't win.
And even death would bind you
To the little kid
Your bodies didn't fade away
Like other Jedi did

And though you couldn't beat Darth Maul
And he ran you through
We know we won't forget you,
And your farewell barbecue

I was thinking "hold on a sec, hasn't this been done already", till I saw your note at the top. Nice one, as usual.

Good point. Why didn't Qui Gon just fade away?

Steve C: Your Jinn song was the right tonic, and I love "Candle" parodies. Does that make a light-saber the ultimate "Candle In the Wind"? Steve K: Because, unlike Obi-Wan and Yoda, Qui-Gon was not an old soldier.

Uh.. I didn't get it wrong, I *wrote* the thing. I changed the lyrics for the recording because I thought a few lines could be better.
