'Star Wars Trilogy' - with catchy tunes


Excerpts of lyrics to songs from MIT Theater Guild's "Star Wars Triology: Musical Edition":

Death Star Assault Medley

A squadron of six X-wings leads the big assault
With a dozen to nine Y-wings close behind
When you drive them back attack,
there will be a lot of action,
The best the Empire can find

Tune: "76 Trombones"
From: "Music Man"

Get Me to the Trench

I'm getting martyred in the battle
Big bang! They'll all pay for their crime!
They aim to drop us
But no one will stop us
Just get me to the trench on time

Tune: "I'm Getting Married in the Morning"
From: "My Fair Lady"

Nothin' Like a Name (Storm Troopers Song)

We got sidearms at our hips
We got rifles in our hands
We got ammo clips to fire lasers at the rebel band
We got body armor, gleaming white, of universal fame
What ain't we got? We ain't got names!

Tune: "Nothin' Like a Dame"
From: "South Pacific"
