    Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
    Could he bring balance to the Force?
    They interviewed the kid
    Oh, training they forbid

    'cause Yoda sensed in him much fear
    I said just stick it in your pointy ear
    I still will teach this boy

    We started singin'...

    Erm...no...its says:

    Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
    But Qui-Gon said "Now listen here"
    "Just stick it in your pointy ear"
    "I still will teach this boy"

    Yep! I knew there was something missing there, but couldn't come up with it.

    Your go!

    My my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
    And he left his home and 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 have 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 Gungans died
    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

    (that's my favorite lines :D )

    I know every word to this. Did you know Weird Al (re)wrote this based only off of spoilers and didn't see the actual movie until recently?

    He actually paid money to see the movie before it was out so he could write the parody.

    One More Time!

    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 in to
    Maybe cutting them a little slack...
    Man this is one of my favorite songs!
    Every time I hear the original song that
    it's based off of, "American Pie",
    I always, always end up singing
    "The Saga Begins"
    instead! :amidala:

    Weird Al also has Midichlorian Rhapsody from Bohemian Rhapsody. It's funny.

    I love that song. In my opinion, the music video is honestly alot better than the actual movie. One of the two best things to come from THE PHANTOM MENACE, as far as I’m concerned (the other is that N64 podracer game).

    Their response, it didn't thrill us.
    They locked the doors
    and tried to kill us...

    This was the first song I think I ever heard by Weird Al. This premiered on Radio Disney the summer of 99, when I was not yet 15 and still living in Dallas. We were in my dad's volvo, me and my sister and this song came on and I don't think I had seen Dad laughing so hard while singing along. We bought the Weird Al album that afternoon.
