Story behind the song
Yes, I am a Star Wars fan, and when I heard this song, I had to learn it! So here it is. The recorded version is by the Dust Rhinos who authored the song. But give us some time and we'll post our own unique version with Darth Vader and all!
Lyrics
I had one pint of beer, and one shot of scotch, I had one bottle of wine, and bourbon on the rocks I had one lassie on me right, another on the left, I looked that puppet in the eye and said give me the test A long time ago, in a pub far away, I sat on a barstool, just drinking away, I couldn't hold it down, I guess I had too much I felt a tremor in the force and then I lost my lunch I woke up in a desert land, feeling hot and sick, I saw a bearded man, he looked like some kind of hick, He slowly waved his hand, and my pain was gone He said let's go see Yoda, and I'll teach you this song. So we got on a starship, and flew off into space He said his name was Obi-Wan and there is no time to waste, I have to get you trained before it is too late, He said drink this bottle of whisky, and don't give in to hate. My training went on, and I'd drank most of the bar We stopped for supplies on the nearest Death Star I learned to control my fear, and hold my alcohol Soon I was able to stand even when Obi-Wan would fall. [Star Wars theme song] I sat down beside him and looked him in the eye He broke the silence, said you judge me by my size Obi-Wan said careful, for Yoda is the best I said ok shorty, bring on the test Well I could tell you how it ended, I could tell you some lies Let's just say, on that night the force was on his side I got all riled up, and they threw me in jail I said I don't believe it, Yoda said that's why I failed
