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

But their response, it didn't thrill us
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
We escaped from that gas
Then met Jar Jar in Boss Nass

We took a bongo from the scene
And we went to Theed to see the Queen
We all wound up on Tatooine
That's where we found this boy

Oh my my, this here Anakin guy
Maybe Vader someday later, now he's just a small fry
He left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin', "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Did you know this junkyard slave
Isn't even old enough to shave
But he can use the Force, they say

Ahh, do you see him hitting on the Queen?
Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday

Well, I know he built C-3PO
And I've heard how fast his pod can go
And we were broke, it's true
So we made a wager or two

Ooh, he was a prepubescent flyin' ace
And the minute Jabba started off that race
Well, I knew who would win first place
Oh yes, it was our boy

We started singin', 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"

Now we finally got to Coruscant
The Jedi Council we knew would want
To see how good the boy could be

So we took him there and we told the tale
How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
And he might fulfill that prophecy

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

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

He was singin'," 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 Amigdala wanted to
I frankly would've 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 Gunguns died
Some 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

And I was singin', 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 were singin', "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"
