Inspired by the IJ School Band for the rendition of Copablanca, I decided to feature THE STAR WARS CANTINA PARODY SONG written and performed by MARK JONATHAN DAVIS as a tribute to all the Band girls and teachers in charge.

Links to the sound file (wav) come after the lyrics. You just have to listen to it!

May the farce be with you!

(sung to the tune of "COPACABANA" by Barry Manilow)

"Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope..." (spoken by Princess Leia)

Her name was Leia
She was a princess
With a danish on each ear
And Darth Vader drawing near
So R2-D2
Found Ben Kenobi
He'd have to put the Death Star plans
Into the Rebellion's hands
So Luke and Obi-Wan
Had to get to Alderaan
So they stopped into Mos Eisley to have a drink with Han

At the Star Wars, Star Wars Cantina
The weirdest creatures you've ever seen-a
Here at the Star Wars, Star Wars Cantina
Music and blasters
And old Jedi masters
At the Star Wars...

His name was Solo
He was a pilot
With a blaster at his side
And a smile 12 parsecs wide
There with Chewbacca
He was a wookie
They met with Luke and Obi-Wan
About the Millennium Falcon
Docking bay ninety-four
Stormtroopers at the door
With a flash of Ben's light-saber
Now there's an arm on the floor

(repeat chorus)

"Mos Eisley spaceport... you will never find the more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious." (spoken by Ben Kenobi)

His name was Yoda
He was a muppet
Darth Vader was so bad
And by the way, he's Luke's dad
Luke kissed his sister
His hand got cut-off
In that galaxy far, far away
Luke has had a lousy day
Boba Fett was so mean
Jabba had bad hygiene
Why didn't they all just relax back on Tatooine?

(repeat chorus)

"The force will be with you...always." (spoken by Ben)
