This song is based on The Dandy Warhols ‘Bohemian Like You’, and follows the path of the Death Star plans from the point of view of a plucky little droid named ‘Artoo’, alleged force-wielder and unsung hero of the Battle of Yavin.

There’s a bonus ‘faux-dialogue’ song at the front if it takes your fancy. Have fun, and may The Force be with you!

LYRICS: ‘I’m Artoo’, by Tim Ireland

(Sung to ‘Bohemian Like You’ by The Dandy Warhols)

I got the death star
Plans are planted in my brain
Yeah, it’s got a minor flaw
There’s a port to the main core

I really love
These sand dunes, yeah
And the Jawas mean no harm
Now we’re here at Owen’s farm

So, what do you do?
Oh yeah, I like X-wings too

No, I haven’t seen you fly
But I’ve a feeling that you do

And if you dig on ad-ven-ture
Well come over to Kenobi’s

I can show you
Something that you’ll really love

‘Cause I’m Artoo
Yeah I’m Artoo
And I’m joining the rebellion like you

Yeah I’m Artoo
Yeah, I’m Artoo
And I feel
whoa ho
woo!

(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)

Wait
Who’s that guy
Hangin’ at the landing pad

He’s looking kinda bummed
Oh, a death mark?
That’s too bad

I guess it’s fair
if we get to Alderaan
And he takes it like a man

If the planet isn’t home
when we’re there

‘Cause I’m Artoo
Yeah I’m Artoo
And I’m part of the rebellion like you

‘Cause I’m Artoo
Yeah I’m Artoo
And I feel
whoa ho
woo!

(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)

I feel the force
And I’m part of the rebellion like you

That port is ahead, so please
Just fly casual, casual easily

Hit it!
Hit it for me!

And I’m Artoo
yeah I’m Artoo

And I’m Artoo
I’m Artoo
I’m Artoo

I’m Artoo
I’m Artoo
I’m Artoo

I’m Artoo

And I feel
Whoa ho
woo!

(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)
(beeping and whistling)
