Both here and in a galaxy far, far away
We celebrate a very special day.
A day of wonder, a day of mirth
Unlike few days upon this earth.
When grand heroes will step into the light
To battle forces of the night
Luke and Leia, Han and Chewy
Droids with messages that are screwy.
Tatooine, where the rule of thumb
Is villainy among the scum
Mos Eisley cantina is where you can go
To see the creatures put on a show
Or find a ride into the stars
To avoid the Empire’s radars
That piece of junk? Just wait a sec
The Kessel run under 12 parsecs?
You know that ‘s not a unit of time…
That story is the most sublime.
Just remember, to your chagrin
In chess you let the Wookie win.
So many great moments across the sky
for those who will live and those who will die
Yoda, the Ewoks, the massive Death Star
Lando, Kenobi and even Jar Jar.
Stormtroopers shooting and once again missing
Brother and sister unwittingly kissing
The Jedis killed off by one of their own
Boba Fett was an unaltered clone.
Tell me again, tell me with care
Boba Fett? Bobba Fett? Where?
Yoda tells Skywalker “Do or do not”
While Luke uses the Force to lift up a rock.
Vader tells Luke that he is his father
Causing poor Luke a great sense of bother
There is so much to do. There is so much to say
On International Star Wars Day
There is only one thing that you simply must do
Say to your friends, “May the 4th be with you!”
