The Saga Begins

On our way to drop off Trip and Nate with their parents,
Charlie put on some new tunes.
Anyone remember, Weird Al Yankovic from hits such as
Amish Paradise (spin off of Ganster's Paradise)
Pretty Fly for a Rabbi (spin off Pretty Fly for a White Guy)?

Well, he also has a song called The Saga Begins
that details all Star Wars' history.
It's sung to the American Pie melody
and the lyrics are amazing.
It is truly impressive how A.Y. can take a such a well loved song,
apply a completely different subject and still have original lyrics.

Trip and Nate are huge Star War fans even though they've only seen a few of the movies.
As you can see they take their lightsabers with them wherever they go!

Here aere his well crafted lyrics:
A long long time ago

In a galaxy far away
Naboo was under an attack

And I thought me and Qui Gon Jin
Could talk the federation into maybe cutting them a little Slack
But their response, it didn't thrill us
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
We escaped from that gas
And met Jar Jar in Bosnas
We took a bongo from the scene
And went to Theed to see the Queen
We all wound up on Tatooine
That's where we found this boy

Oh my, my this here Annakin guy
Maybe Vader someday later
Now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mummy goodbye
Saying "Soon, I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."
