Lyrics

[Close Encounters of the Droid Kind]
You must use the force (repeat ad nauseum)

[Raiders of the Lost Wookiee]
Long time ago, far far away (repeat)

Kiss a wookie, kick a droid
Fly the falcon through an asteroid
Till the princess is annoyed
This is spaceships, it's monsters, it's Star Wars, we love it!

Come and help me, Obi-Wan
X-wing fighter and a blaster gun
Dance with Ewoks, oh what fun!
This is spaceships, it's monsters, it's Star Wars, we love it!

[Super Han]
Get in there you big, furry oaf
I couldn't care less what you smell
I take orders from only me
Maybe you'd like it back in your cell
Your Highness, your worshipfulness, your highness, your worshipfulness

No one cares if you upset a droid
(nobody cares if you upset a droid)
That's because droids don't tear your arms out of socket.
(nobody cares)
I suggest a new strategy: let the Wookie win
That's because nobody cares if you upset a droid.

[ET the DiscoTerrestrial]
Now we listen to Luke whining:
One more season... One more season... One more season... One more season...

I was gonna go to Tosche Station for power converters
Now I guess I'm going nowhere.
It just isn't fair.

[Jaws: the Wookiee]
Woooooookiee (repeat)

Someone move this walking carpet (repeat)

Kiss your brother, Kiss your brother (repeat)

Princess Leia
Well I guess you don't know anything about women.

Who's your daddy? (repeat)

[Jurassic Darth]
Luke, I'm your father
(That's not true!)
It is useless to resist
(My hand!)
Come with me my son, We will rule
(I'll never join you!)
Search your feelings it is true

So you have a twin sister
Who Obi-Wan was wise to hide
(Is that Leia?)
If you will not turn
Then perhaps she will
Give in to your hate
You are mine

Long Long Long Time ago... Far Far Far Far Away

Long Long Long Time Ago, Far Far Far Away (repeat)

Kiss a wookie
Kick a droid
Fly the falcon
Through an asteroid
Till the princess is annoyed
(She's annoyed!)
This is spaceships, it's monsters, it's Star Wars, we love it, it's true

Episode 3
Coming to you
In 2005

So Let's go
(go go go to the movies)
Stand in line
(buy buy buy me some popcorn)
Cause it's al-
(please I'd like extra butter)
most the time
(Join the dark side...)
May the Force be with you all

John Williams is the man

Notes/Trivia

Star Wars
Based on music by John Williams, words from the original Star Wars trilogy by George Lucas
Arranged by J.S. Slagowski and Bryant W. Smith, adapted by Tim Y. Jones

Premiered May 19, 1999 - the very night that Episode 1: The Phantom Jar-Jar opened in the United States.

It has been performed as a techno song twice.

For a while, moosebutter was going to swap in other tunes and other words to keep the piece more current; never happened. Sections considered: tune of 'Schindler's List' with the words 'All we ask of the next movie is no Jar-Jar Binks' (between Ep. II and III); a love theme to the 'Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo' words and other wretch-inducing bad dialogue between Anakin and what's-er-name.

Approximate number of times moosebutter has performed 'Star Wars' as of October 2008: 5,276,228,173.

Oct 31, 2008 note: Corey Vidal put up a lip-synced video version of this song. More people saw it on the internet than probably ever saw any of our other videos on the internet. If you came here because you saw Corey's video, celebrate by eating some candy corn! It's on us. Video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk5_OSsawz4

FAQ - there's a lot of confusion about the origin of the Star Wars song, since many people are attributing it solely to Corey Vidal. Here is information to clear up the mis-information, which we have little hope that the people who need it will read it.

  • Music is from 6 different not-Star Wars movies, all written by John Williams.

  • Words are paraphrased or directly from the original Star Wars trilogy, by George Lucas, et al.

  • Song was arranged spring 1999 by Josh Slagowski and Bryant Smith, original members of moosebutter, in Salt Lake City, UT. Parts were re-arranged later by Mister Tim (Tim Y. Jones)

  • Song was recorded in 2000 by Josh, Bryant, and Tim, and re-recorded in 2002 by Tim, Chris, Glen, and Weston, the new cast of moosebutter.

  • There have been almost 50 different cast members of moosebutter since 1999, including subs and special guests. About half of those have sung Star Wars.

  • Corey Vidal contacted us in summer 2008 to ask permission to produce his video. We said yes.

  • WHAM BAM internet explosion.

  • Corey is lip-synching to the 2002 studio recording of moosebutter. It was recorded at June Audio, Provo, UT. Corey filmed his video in his kitchen.

  • moosebutter filmed their response video in November 2008. Corey was the most vocal supporter of us producing the new video, and he graciously posted it to his popular YouTube channel to generate more views.

  • At the time of posting, Corey's video has more than 3.2 million more views than moosebutter's. That's because Corey is cuter, and smells better.

After Corey Vidal's video unexpectedly exploooooded in internet popularity, YouTube user JuniorComedy offered to do a video with us in the studio. We took him up on the offer.

Re-mix by neomp5


neomp5 has created a recursive loop by mixing our song back into the original music we were parodying. Hopefully this will not cause the universe to implode any time soon...

Corey Vidal + neomp5 + openmind1969a


Okay, the universe is definitely going to implode now. "openmind1969a" has mixed neomp5's re-mix back into Corey's lip-synched video of our song. My head is starting to spin.

Live performance at a high school party in Poland. The accents seriously make this at least twice as awesome.

Based on the website statistics, there's a 97% chance that you're here because you saw this video. For that other three percent of you, here's a video of a guy lip-synching our song.
Seriously, thanks for the worldwide exposure, Corey!
