Sorry, Dolly-- 9 to 5 Star Wars Parody Spoof from Stormtrooper Perspective


Someone on G+ had posted the graphic above, and it got me feeling musical all over. So I couldn't help but try my hand at the song this image so desperately wanted to be paired with.

Please do not crush my trachea with your mind because of it. I need my trachea. It's been so good to me.



Tumble out of bed and you stumble to Cantina
Get yourself a bowl of farina and--
Look, it's laser fire!-- you'd better dive!
Jump in formation and your blood starts pumping
Darth looks your way and your heart starts jumping
When Friday comes you hope you're still alive...


Chorus: 
Hope you're still alive
What a way to earn some space cash
Barely getting by
When there's not much rebel backlash
Want to march ahead
But ol' Darth won't recognize you
Dressed in uniform like all the guys do...


Well, you'd try lead but your neck might shatter
You're just one point in the Dark Side's data
But you've got schemes; those droids can't get away
You're in the same troop as a lot of your friends
Just a-waiting for an escape pod to retirement
But the tractor beam's on and it's all gonna tow you away



Chorus: 
Hope you're still alive
What a way to earn some space cash
Barely getting by
When there's not much rebel backlash
Want to march ahead
But ol' Darth won't recognize you
Dressed in uniform like all the guys do...

I love how you perfectly match the rhythm of the hilarious lyrics of your version of the "9 to 5" song with the theme of Star Wars. Cool.

This song should be sung by Dolly Parton at a Comic Con convention or Star Wars convention (I'm guessing they have the latter, somewhere).

Take care, Jenn

Uh, well, uh, don't quit your day job.

I wrote the song "What the Hell is Wrong with you? However I have not come up with the tune for it. I am a wordsmith. If you care to look at it at my Agent 54 blog, maybe we can create a collaboration.

I'm a John Lennon looking for his Paul McCartney. http://agent54nsa.blogspot.com/

Gosh! I never thought that space heroes are also hard working! I'm crossing my fingers that they are being compensated right! LOL!
