The Star Wars That I Used To Know

Now and then I think of when I was in power
Like choking people with the Force until they died
But then you told them all my history
And took away my masculinity
And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.

This is hands down the best parody of this song. Why? Verses like the one above just… it’s like it was taken right out of my mind. *wipes tear*

Listen to me getting all emotional… all the mystery behind that 7′ tall, evil, cyborg that destroyed planets and enslaved the galaxy giving me nightmares… gone, the force… midichlorians gone, puppetry and real fx… gone. Yep. It hits me right here… *sniff*

Really though, this amazing parody done by TeddieFilms is a great take on Gotye’s Somebody That I Used to Know. I mean really, the only way this would get better is seeing Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes all do this on one guitar. (bonus points if you know who that is).

LYRICS

[DARTH:]
Now and then I think of when I was in power
Like choking people with the Force until they died
But then you told them all my history
And took away my masculinity
And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.

You are now addicted to an overuse of graphics
And making Greedo shoot first? Han shot first.
So when you tried to have the Force make sense
You introduced the midichlorians
And what’s the deal with having me be dubbed over (Noooooooooo!)

But you didn’t have to change it all.
Make ‘em like they never happened and the fans are nothing
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a Bantha and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to make them blow
Have your friends direct your movies and they’ll turn out better.
You think that you don’t need them though
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[GEORGE LUCAS:]
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over.
I had them believing that the first three films were really done.
But Star Wars will be done my way
I don’t care what you have to say
I think that they should let it go
And they’ll never get the Blu-Ray of the Star Wars that you used to know

[DARTH:]
You didn’t have to change it all.
No more puppets, no more practical effects or nothin’
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a wampa and that feels so cold.
No you didn’t have to sell your soul
Do we really need to watch them all again in 3D?
Jar Jar was an all time low
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[x2]
The movies
(I used to know)
The movies
(What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know)

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)
(That I used to know)

A huge thank you to our own Beaubot for posting this on Facebook and letting me steal so I can get the credit.
