The Lyrics

Subtitle: "The Rise and Fall of an Evil Empire (Minion)"
Workin' in a space bar
Underground, ground, ground
Workin' in a space bar
When, a Jedi came 'round
Workin' in a space bar
Underground, ground, ground
Workin' in a space bar
When, a Jedi came 'round

He's in shock and in mourning
He's preaching right and wrong
Lord, I'm inspired
Say, can I tag along?

I was workin' in a space bar
Underground, ground, ground
Workin' in a space bar
When, a Jedi came 'round
Workin' in a space bar
Underground, ground, ground
Workin' in a space bar
When, a Jedi came 'round

Now I work in the mornin'
And I'm buildin' a bowl
But when Lord Vader comes around
I'm inspired to havin' fun (I'm wired to having fun)

Workin' on a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Workin' on a Death Star
Oops! I'm now a headcase
Workin' on a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Workin' on a Death Star
Oops! I'm now a headcase

SPOKEN (IN REALLY GAY VOICE):
Lord I am so tired!
How long must this go on?

Now I'm workin' on a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Workin' on a Death Star
Oops! Here comes a scapegrace!
Workin' on a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Workin' on a Death Star
Oops! Here comes a scapegrace!

Five o'clock in the mornin'
I'm all ready up at dawn
Lord, I'm so shoot at
How long can this go on?

Now I'm fleein' from a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Fleein' from a Death Star
Oops! There was an efface
Fleein' from a Death Star
Up in space, space, space
Fleein' from a Death Star
Oops! There was an efface

Now I work in the evenin'
And I long for my bar
And when my duty comes around
I'm inspired to go off far (Employer is quite bizarre)

Workin' for this Jar-Jar
Goin' down, down, down
Workin' for this Jar-Jar
And, about to skip town
Workin' for this Jar-Jar
Goin' down, down, down
Workin' for this Jar-Jar
And, about to skip town

Lord I'm so mired
