Track Name: Red 5
I've done all pre-flight checks
I've got my astromech
Course is plotted and we're off the deck
And we ain't coming back til the Imperial Navy's wrecked
Gonna take down every TIE
No choice, it's either win or die
The Alliance's future I'll help decide
When the enemy engages, yeah, you know I'll be ready to fly!

The fighting starts, there's no time for decisions
LOCK S-FOILS IN ATTACK POSITION!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!

Are my reflexes sharp?
All my shots hit the mark
R2 is gonna do his part
Final run down the trench, and the target's not very far
Got three TIEs on my six
Wedge is gone, Biggs is blown to bits
It's up to me, I know I can't miss
Targeting computer's off but Ben promised a direct hit


The fighting starts, there's no time for decisions
LOCK S-FOILS IN ATTACK POSITION!

The fighting starts, there's no time for decisions
LOCK S-FOILS IN ATTACK POSITION!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!


S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!

S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!
S-foils, S-foils, S-foils in attack position!
Track Name: Han Shot First
So I owe some dough to Jabba
For a deal that slipped my grip
I had to drop some cargo
Before the Imperials boarded my ship
Now scum and villainy are after me
In every corner of the galaxy
Greedo happened to track me down
But that green bug eyed creep is about to be sorry
Han shot first! First and last
Han shot first! With a laser blast
Han shot first! First and last
Greedo never had a chance
It's no fun with a price on your head
And a walking carpet is your only friend
A smuggler's life is so much harder
When every bounty hunter wants to turn you in
I might as well start herding nerfs
A wanted man can't make a sale
One can't even join the Rebellion
With the likes of Boba Fett on your trail
(Chorus, solo) Going somewhere Solo?
Just as my luck was turning around
17 thousand with 2 grand down
Greedo cornered me in a corner booth
But you know I've got no time for that clown
(Chorus)
Track Name: Jedi School
Sitting in my swamp down on Dagobah
Living in a house that's covered in mud
This young little rebel steps foot on my land
Wanna learn the force well teach you I can

Judge me by my size you do
But Don’t you be no fool
Impossible to see the future is
Welcome to Jedi school
Welcome to jedi school

Running through the swamp and swinging from trees
Lifting up the fighter with the greatest of ease
This last part go alone you must
From now on it’s the force you trust

Balance to the force you must bring
The dark side must not rule
Destroy the emperor and save the day
Being a jedi rules
Being a jedi rules

Judge me by my size you do
But Don’t you be no fool
Impossible to see the future is
Welcome to Jedi school
Welcome to jedi school
Track Name: Kenobi
My robes are brown my hair is a wizened white
The force is with me, I'm a Jedi Knight
I fought in the clone wars, and I kept the peace
If you strike me down my powers only increase

The emperor decreed my kind erased
You would not believe the foes I've faced
I've managed to escape oblivion
I secretly protect Skywalker's son

I've been hiding out on Tatooine
Plotting the demise of Palpatine
With a couple droids, young Luke, Chewbacca and Han
Gotta get these Death Star plans to Alderaan

Kenobi, Obi Wan
Track Name: Goldenrod
Always worried about being shot
Or melted down into who knows what
Programmed for etiquette and protocol
Six million languages, he knows them all
And he helps in any way he can
But sometimes his feelings get out of hand
He doesn't wanna be blasted to bits
He falls apart every time he's hit
Yeah, he's no good in a fire fight
Who could blame him for being uptight
Emotion's a thing he can't understand
He thinks Han's an impossible man
Given the chance, he'd just run away
But when push comes to shove, he'll save the day
Goldenrod, Goldenrod
Floating in the air like a Golden God
If things are getting risky, he can tell you the odds
If you need to know the protocol,
Just call
Goldenrod
C-3-P-O
C-3-P-O
He always forgets that he hates space flight
To suffer seems his lot in life
He thinks it typical when you're rude
But he'll come along if you ask him to
R2's always getting him into a mess
He seems to excel at it, he's the best
If his head's on backwards, he's apparently blind
Still, it's better than being left behind
Goldenrod, Goldenrod
Floating in the air like a Golden God
If things are getting risky, he can tell you the odds
If you need to know the protocol,
Just call
Goldenrod, Goldenrod
Floating in the air like a Golden God
If things are getting risky, he can tell you the odds
If you need to know the protocol,
Just call
Goldenrod
Track Name: R2-D2
(Jason as R2)
It's time for me to save the day
This is my forte
Stormtroopers after us
Situation perilous
I think I see a terminal
Gonna get us out of trouble
Threepio is panicking
Relax, let me do my thing

R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 ARTOO!

(Travis as Luke)
Passed down from generations of the Jedi elite
As a copilot he can't be beat
Unlocking doors and patching the ship
Without him we are under equipped
There's a tie fighter on my back
Fix that problem and prepare for attack
You might think him just a tag along
But without him we wouldn’t last long

R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 ARTOO!
Artoo, Detoo, where are you?
Artoo, Detoo, where are you?
R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 ARTOO!

(Benny as Threepio)
Don't get technical with me
You overweight glob of grease
You're just a rusty tin can
For messages and stolen plans
Just fix the Falcon's hyperdrive
Or we'll never make it out alive
We don't have time for your
Delusions of grandeur!

R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 D2 ARTOO!
Track Name: Tie Fighter
In my Tie Interceptor I police Imperial space
Stormtrooper dressed in black you never see my face
We shoot to kill we take no prisoner
We're here to protect and serve our emperor
Tie Fighter (4x)
No light saber but we do use excessive force
Gonna crush The Rebellion and their children with no remorse
Twin ions baby listen to my engine roar
Our target is the Rebel base down on Yavin 4
Tie Fighter (4x)(solo)
Chasing some Rebel scum down a Death Star trench
They pose no immediate threat but we'll give 'em the pinch
Lord Vader is on the leader I've got his six
It's gonna be all over in a couple clicks
Tie Fighter (4x)
Track Name: Boba Fett
Boots strapped tight, blasters set to 'kill',
If it comes to that, then you know I will
Jetpack fueled, the trap is set,
If you think you'll escape, then I'll take that bet

Don't beg, don't plead,
I don't care, you're just credits to me
I haven't ever lost a bounty yet,
What's my name?
BOBA FETT!!

The bounty said, 'alive or dead',
You won't believe the credits on your head
You've never seen my eyes, but know my face,
You're gonna want to hide but there's no place

Don't beg, don't plead,
I don't care, you're just credits to me
I haven't ever lost a bounty yet,
What's my name?
BOBA FETT!!
I'm gonna take you with or without guns
BOBA FETT!
You're gonna take a ride in Slave I
BOBA FETT!
Don't even think that you can get away
BOBA FETT!
You're mine, I'm getting paid today!
BOBA FETT!

Don't beg, don't plead,
I don't care, you're just credits to me
I haven't ever lost a bounty yet,
What's my name?
BOBA FETT!!
Track Name: Scoundrel
I've got red glow in the dark protection
For the Twi'lek tail I'm tearing up tonight
I need no course correction
I've got the bullseye in my sight

(chorus)
I'm a scoundrel baby, but I'm a Jedi in the streets
You'll find I'm full of surprises, 'cause I'm a Sith Lord in the sheets

Nothing like a blaster by your side
And I keep my Saber lit
I fear no asteroid
I get cocky in the cockpit

(chorus)

If pleasure is all you're after
Then that's what you'll receive
Star systems slipping through your fingers
In the shade on Tatooine

(chorus)
Track Name: Amanaman
Comes from the treetops on Maridun
Raised in the jungle, always on the run
Yellow bellied, green poisonous skin
Eight feet tall, arms long and thin

Amanaman- Amanaman- Amanaman

Hitching a ride to Tatooine
Avoiding the Empire's slave regime
Life In Mos Eisley will make you corrupt
Gonna hunt bounties for Jabba the Hutt

Amanaman- Amanaman- Amanaman

Killing for credits is fuel for his need
Mercenary for life, slaying for greed
Learned how to be a cold heartless slug
All emotions swept under the rug

Amanaman- Amanaman- Amanaman

Worked his way up, joined Jabba's court
Hunting down victims like it's a sport
If you cross Jabba and make his list
Your head may adorn an Amani stick

Amanaman- Amanaman- Amanaman

Some bounties you should just leave alone
Powerful their friends, your time is blown
Mess with the Jedi, go down with the ship
Or you may end up in the Sarlacc Pit

Amanaman- Amanaman- Amanaman
Track Name: Arfive Defour
Take me home, please take me home
I'll do whatever you need done
I'm the perfect size, I'm easy on the eyes
and I'm not the property of Obi Wan
R! 5! D! 4!
Astromech features galore
Just fix my bad motivator
And I could be the droid you're looking for
I've been riding 'round in a dirty holding cell
Sand Crawler life is such a drain
This DSD keeps eying me and saying awful things
And that power droid is driving me insane
(chorus)(solo)
Everyone here wants a home no more restraining bolt
I'd very much like to belong to you
A cleaning and a charging I can smell that oil bath
I know you like red more than you like blue
(chorus 2x)
Track Name: Queen Amidala
Now I know
A thing or two about the world
And I know
That there are lots of pretty girls...


But your hair, it drives me crazy
So, well, I was thinking maybe
That you'd wanna be my baby for a while

Now I know
I've nearly got ten years on you
And I know
That you're the ruler of Naboo
And I know you like 'em younger
But this spell you've got me under
Has my heart all filled with thunder just for you

Queen Amidala, I love you
Can we hang out a day or two?
We could cruise the sands of Tattooine
Or go to Theed and make the scene
Do anything at all you wanna do
Queen Amidala, I love you

Well I may not be the perfect guy
And you've got a thing for that little Jedi
But if you'd be mine for a day
Then everything would be okay

Queen Amidala, I love you
Track Name: Leia
Leia, Leia, lovely Leia Organa
Don't you fear, your man is here

I may be scruffy, but I know you love me
Kiss me for good luck, kiss me I'm love struck
Alderaan's finest, my royal highness
My lovely princess, my love I confess

You where my first love, the one I dreamed of
Dressed up in pure white, a breath taking sight
My royal senator, the girl I've longed for
Hair up or hair down, you make my heart pound

Beautiful brown eyes, how they mesmerize
Good with a blaster, I'm falling faster
So smitten with you, nothing I won't do
You are my fantasy, come fly away with me
Track Name: Goodbye, Alderaan
Out for a walk on a perfect day
No one carries weapons and they all feel safe
But something is looming up there in the sky
Just out of the reach of the naked eye
Everybody's laughing and they're having fun
And everybody gets along with everyone
But a sudden flash of light, everything is gone
Goodbye, Alderaan
Goodbye to Alderaan
Goodbye to Alderaan
A single shot, it's gone
Goodbye to Alderaan
They never, saw it coming
Now they're blown into space
Because Leia wouldn't give Tarkin
The location of the Rebel base
Now it's none for all, all for none
One less stone around that sun
No birds in the sky or fishes in the sea
Millions crying out and silenced suddenly
Yeah everybody died, none of them were saved
An asteroid field is their only grave
A single laser blast and all of them were gone
Goodbye, Alderaan
Goodbye to Alderaan
Goodbye to Alderaan
A single shot, it's gone
Goodbye to Alderaan
