The Saga Begins

Weird Al Yankovic

---------------


 GDEm
A long long time ago
 AmC
in a galaxy far away
 EmD
Naboo was under an attack
 GDEm
And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn
 AmC
Could talk the Federation in
 EmCD7
To maybe cutting them a little slack
 EmAm
But their response, it didn't thrill us
 EmAm
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
 CGAm
 We escaped from that gas
 CD
Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
 GDEm
We took a bongo from the scene
 Am7D
And we went to Theed to see the queen
 GDEm
We all wound up on Tatooine
 CD7GCG
That's where we found this boy... 
 GCGD
Oh my my, this here Anakin guy
 GCGD
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
 GCGD
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 EmA7
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

 EmD7
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
 GAm
 Did you know this junkyard slave
 CAm
Isn't even old enough to shave
 EmD
But he can use the Force they say
 GDEm
Ahh, do you see him hitting on the queen
 AmC
Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
 EmA7D7
Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday
 EmAm
Well, I know he built C-3PO
 EmAm
And I've heard how fast his pod can go
 CGA7
And we were broke, it's true
 CD7
So we made a wager or two...oooh!
 GDEm
He was a prepubescent flyin' ace
 AmC
And the minute Jabba started off that race
 GDEm
Well, I knew who would win first place
 CD7GCGD7
Oh yes, it was our boy... We started singing
G D
 GCGD
 my my, this here Anakin guy
 GCGD
May be Vader someday  [later - now he's just a small fry
 GCGD
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 EmA7
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

 EmD7
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
 GAm
Now we finally got to Coruscant
 CAm
The Jedi Council, we knew would want
 EmD
To see how good the boy could be
 GDEm
So we took him there and we told the tale
 AmC
How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
 EmA7D7
 And he might fulfill that prophecy
 EmAm
Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
 EmAm
Could he bring balance to the Force?
 CGA7
They interviewed the kid
 CD7
Oh, training they forbid....oh?
 GDEm
Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
 AmC
And Qui-Gon said, "Now listen here
 GDEm
Just stick it in your pointy ear
 CD7GCGD7
still will teach this boy" ..He was singin'

 GCGD
 my my, this here Anakin guy
 GCGD
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
 GCGD
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 EmA7
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

 EmD7
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
 GDEm
We caught a ride back to Naboo
 AmC
'Cause Queen Amidala wanted to
 EmD
frankly would've liked to stay

 GDEm
We all fought in that epic war
 AmC
And it wasn't long at all before
 EmCD7
Little Hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
 EmAm
And in the end some Gungans died
 EmAm
Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
 CGAm7
lot of folks were croakin'
 CD
The battle droids were broken
 GDEm
And the Jedi I admire most
 Am7D
Met up with Darth Maul and now he's toast
 GDEm
Well, I'm still here and he's a ghost
(slow)
 CD7GCGD7
guess I'll train this boy .....And I was singin'...
 GCGD
 My my, this here Anakin guy
 GCGD
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
 GCGD
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 EmA7
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

 EmD7
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
(all)
 GD7
 We were singin...

 GCGD
 my my, this here Anakin guy
 GCGD
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
 GCGD
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 CD7GCG
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
