The Saga begins Weird al yankovic

  • Heres one of weird al's parody songs, this time on the famous American Pie song ^^ Enjoy!


    A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, Naboo was under an attack,
    And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn 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 and Boss Nass.
    We took a bongo from the scene, and we went to Theed to see the Queen.
    We all wound up on Tatooine; that's where we found this boy.

    My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later; now he's just a small fry.
    He left his home, kissed his mommy goodbye,
    Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."

    Did you know this junkyard slave isn't even old enough to shave?
    But he can use the Force they say,
    Ah, do you see him hitting on the queen though he's just nine and she's fourteen?
    Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday.
    Well, I know he built C-3PO, and I've heard how fast his pod can go.
    And we were broke, it's true, so we made a wager or two.
    He was a prepubescent flyin' ace, and the minute Jabba started off that race,
    Well, I knew who would win first place: oh yes, it was our boy.

    We started singin'
    My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later; now he's just a small fry.
    He left his home, kissed his mommy goodbye,
    Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."

    Now we finally got to Coruscant; the Jedi Council we knew would want to see how good the boy could be.
    So we took him there and we told the tale, how his midi chlorians were off the scale, and he might fulfill that prophecy.
    Oh the Council was impressed of course: could he bring balance to the Force?
    They interviewed the kid, oh but training they forbid,
    Because Yoda sensed in him much fear, and Qui Gon said, "Now listen here: just stick it in your pointy ear. I still will teach this boy."

    He was singin'
    My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later; now he's just a small fry.
    He left his home, kissed his mommy goodbye,
    Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."

    We caught a ride back to Naboo 'cause Queen Amidala wanted to; I frankly would've liked to stay.
    We all fought in that epic war, and it wasn't long at all before little hotshot flew his plane and saved the day.
    And in the end some Gunguns died; some ships blew up, and some pilots fried.
    A lot of folks were croakin'; the battle droids were broken.
    And the Jedi I admire most met up with Darth Maul, and now he's toast.
    Well I'm still here, and he's a ghost. I guess...I'll train this boy

    And I was singin'
    My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later; now he's just a small fry,
    He left his home, kissed his mommy goodbye,
    Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."

    We were singin'
    My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later; now he's just a small fry,
    He left his home, kissed his mommy goodbye,
    Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi."

Hilarious. I'll have to listen to this song over and over to learn it and sing it along next week with him while we do our work. Haha.

    Which says a lot about Weird Al's skill here.

    I remember in the year that this was released Madonna also released her version of "American pie" and that got more airplay which in my opinion it didn't deserve, since it was a rather boring rendition of the song.

    This parody is absolutely brilliant. I thought "American Pie" was brilliant but to do a parody that is so (SPOT ON) with it's difficult names and places to rhyme with put it over the top. I know he does some of his own personal songs which are OK but the truth is he really does have a decent voice. I hope he does a parody useing "Somebody I used to know" by Gotye. I think he could really do something with that song.

    What Darth Maul was doing? Um carrying out Sidious plans? The whole point was for Palaptine to become chancellor. Maul served his master faithfully by being the threat that made everyone worry and appoint Palpatine. The end of the movie isn't even complicated at all. Not saying Phantom Menace is Dark Knight, but its a good flick. C3PO is worse than Jar Jar, politics were cool, and continuity seems just
