Grandes Cosas Vienen (A Star Wars/Coldplay Parody)
We were listening to Viva La Vida by Coldplay in the car the other day and a Star Wars-related phrase came to me as a substitution for the "I know St. Peter won't call my name."

Being on vacation, I have a little extra time on my hand, so here's a pass at a complete song.  It takes a little liberty with meter, and I think could tell a better story, but not bad for under 45 minutes' work, I think.


Grandes Cosas Vienen

(Something Big is Coming)

I want to rule the gal-ax-y
Planets will line up to worship me
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Count the stars that I’m going to own

I’m never going to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd will sing
"Now the old kings are dead!” Long live me!"

I will master Obi Wan
Clench my fist and he’s gone
Qui-Gonn, Yoda, and Mace Windu,
Will be speckles of dust when I am through

I’ll feel the Emperor’s strength course through me
A bad-ass galactic power I will be
The dark side of the force revealed
A crimson lightsaber I will wield

All this effort is not in vein
Once you start there is never
Never an other course
But that is once I learn the Force

I have studied all of Vader’s ways
Could choke the insolent for days
Being evil to the weak and dumb
People cannot believe what I've become

I say to hell with lifting crates
Bring me heads on silver plates
I may only be thirteen
But who would never want to be king?

I’ll feel the Emperor’s strength course through me
A bad-ass galactic power I will be
The dark side of the force revealed
A crimson lightsaber I will wield

All this effort is not in vain
I know Lord Vader will call my name
I’ll become a Sith of course,
But that is once I learn the Force

I’ll feel the Emperor’s strength course through me
A bad-ass galactic power I will be
The dark side of the force revealed
A crimson lightsaber I will wield

All this effort is not in vain
I know Lord Vader will call my name
I’ll become a Sith of course,
But that is once I learn the Force
