These are the lyrics we recorded for Midichlorian Rhapsody, much improved from the version I posted a while back:

Midichlorian Rhapsody
ttto “Bohemian Rhapsody”
©2004-2009 Jeff Bohnhoff

Act 1
I’ve got no real life-
I live on Tatooine-
Working for Watto
He flaps like a buzzing bee.
Open my eyes
Two suns in the sky I see-
I’m just a slave boy, I got no place to be.
I build a pod, build a droid
Obi-Wan gets annoyed.
Where did Qui-Gon Jin go, does the Light side matter to me?
To me.

Mama, just met a man.
Put a needle in my arm
Got a look of deep alarm.
Mama, he says that I’m the One
And now he says that I must go away.
Mama, oooh.
Didn’t mean to make you cry,
If I don’t win the speed pod race tomorrow
Carry on, carry on - as if I were not splattered.

Too late – I saw her face.
And though I’m just a boy
I’ll gladly be her toy.
Goodbye Amidala, I’ve got to go –
Gotta go and fix the Force with Qui-Gon Jin.
Jar-Jar, oooh (worse than C3PO).
You’re surely Naboo’s pride
Though I sometimes wish you’d never been born at all.

Act II
I see a little tin tea kettle of a droid.
Boba Fett, Boba Fett was your father named Jango?
Clones and Dooku’s lightning - very very frightening me.
Master Yoda, Master Yoda,
Master Yoda, Master Yoda.
Master Yoda make him go.
Send in the clones.
I pout like a small boy, why does she love me?
He pouts like a small boy, in him what does she see?
This sad romance just a monstrosity.
Laser gun, 3PO – Kenobi let me grow.
Mace Windu! No! We will not let you grow! (Let him grow!)
Mace Windu! We will not let you grow! (let him grow!)
Mace Windu! We will not let you grow! (let me grow!)
Will not let you grow! (Let me grow!).
Will not let you grow!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no-
Mama Schmi-o, Mama Schmi-o, Tusken Raiders let her go!
Lord Palpatine has a dark suit put aside for me, for me, for me.

Act III
So you think you can train me - just one more Jedi?
So you think you can burn me and leave me to die?
Kenobi, can’t do this to me Obi.
Just gotta go Dark, just gotta go Dark side it’s clear.

The Light side doesn’t matter,
Anyone can see.
The Light side doesn’t matter. The Light side doesn’t matter to me.

Where did Qui-Gon Jin go…

Fun! But how did you get permission to record it? Are Queen open to parodies in general, or is this a special case?

Singing "Lord Palpatine has a dark suit put aside for me, for me, for me," over and over and over at the top of my lungs was surely the highlight of my week. I was totally laughing my ass off between takes. That is how I fell off the stool once. I just slithered off I was laughing so hard. If my seventeen year old self could have seen me in that booth singing those lyrics to BR while sitting in the corn field waiting for WLS to crank up the power at 11 pm so she could sing along with Queen, She would have laughed her ass off too.

Thanks again for letting me be a part of filk history. In the future when we speak of this, and we will...

LOL!
