Musical Star Wars Parody: “The Mos Eisley Mosey”

Hi, everyone! Sooooo, this is what happens when you’re a huge Star Wars nerd stuck inside for too long… Enjoy!

 “The Mos Eisley Mosey”

(To the tune  of “The Cantina Band” by John Williams )

Lyrics and vocals by: The Female Yoda

Music by: John Williams  

Sick and cannot leave my home and I’m going a little bit crazy

How I wish that I could roam to the place where they say Han shot Greedo

Scum and villainy aside, it’s the best place to catch a ride

To another galaxy

That’s where I’d like to be

 Nose won’t drip

On a ship

Sniffling is for mynocks

Hyperspace is a place

You can jump through time in

Gravity

Takes a seat

So you’re not so tired

Stuffy head, stuck in bed? Dance with me

on Mos Eisley

 Spoken:

 Grab your banthas boys

We’re goin’ out

 Move your feet

Right to the beat

And shake your hips

But be discreet

A shimmy here

A wiggle there

And flick your hair

Without a care

Only fever in the air’s the Cantina heat

 You don’t have to overdo the sulking around or looking like a grumpy face

This is a dream so dance all around

The cantina band will keep playing for you

Lose the tissue box and the old fuzzy socks for your dancing shoes;

Shake your head to the blues

And start a-swayin’, betrayin’

The good mood you’re conveyin’

Guzzle down a bantha juice and

Dance like it’s for Jabba

Tell someone you’re their father

 Spoken:

 That’s not true. That’s impossible!!! Nooooo!!!!!!

DROID DANCE BREAK: (Interlude)

 Sick and cannot leave my home and I’m going a little bit crazy

How I wish that I could roam to the place where they say Han shot Greedo

Scum and villainy aside, it’s the best place to catch a ride

To another galaxy

in the Mos Eisley

Canti(na!)

 Uh-oh. Overstayed our welcome. Sigh. I’m going back to bed. Calm down, I’m leaving. 

(sound of bottle dropping)

Sorry!!! 

Musical Parody: Digit Night

Musical Parody: Digit Night 

 Happy April Fools Day, Party People!!!

In honor of this humorous holiday, I decided to post a day early and write a sequel to my first Musical Parody, (“Pudding Legs”) with help from Taio Cruz’s catchy tune “Dynamite”… or as I’ve renamed it, “Digit Night.” (No, not digits as in: I got that girl’s digits, broooo!!!! Digits as in your super fabulous fingers! Bro.) 

Sidebar- is it bad I totally use the same surfer boy voice in my head when writing all my male imitations? But I digress.

This Parody is dedicated to all you special souls finding a way to smile through chronic illness. On this day of mirth and light, I offer you a way to dance the night away, even if your body, like mine, isn’t currently up to party hardy the traditional way. This parody shows how we positive people do it up! Please tweet, pin, share/like the post on The Female Yoda’s Facebook page, or email this link to anyone who’s fighting extra hard right now in their own journey back to health, happiness, and general awesomeness. So without further ado, I present to you: “Digit Night!” Enjoy!

“Digit Night” Lyrics

(To the Tune of “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz) 

Parody Lyrics Written and Performed by The Female Yoda, April 1, 2014 

I like to move, move, move, move

Me and my Foda self like to groove, groove, groove, groove

I used to dance all around the room, room, room, room

When movie credits went all boom, boom, boom, boom

Yeah, Yeah

So if you relate to this song

Why don’t you finger dance along, yeah

I put my hands up in the air sometimes and I’m like oh, no, legs won’t follow!

So now I lie back and I rock the rhyme

With my enchanting finger dancing

So though we don’t go out

We gon’ rock this house

Where digits dance all night

Until our hands get tight

So move them left to right

Do the swivel swirl

And if you’re feeling bold

Do the cha-cha twirl

I rest all day, day, day, day

To get all ready for when we play, play, play, play

I’m making sure to eat all my greens, greens, greens, greens

To keep my fingers all strong and mean, mean, mean, mean

Yeah, Yeah

So if you relate to this song

Why don’t you finger dance along, yeah

I put my hands up in the air sometimes and I’m like oh, no, legs won’t follow!

So now I lie back and I rock the rhyme

With my enchanting finger dancing

So though we don’t go out

We gon’ rock this house

Where digits dance all night

Until our hands get tight

So move them left to right

Do the swivel swirl

And if you’re feeling bold

Do the cha-cha twirl

I’m gonna take them higher

I’m gonna be the best couch dancer

And when I get on fire

They’re gonna swivel better than Usher

‘Cause I, I, I, won’t give up living

And I, I, I, I just want it all

Don’t care if I fall

So dance your fingers up in the air, up in the air

Just put them up in the air, air, air, air, air, air, air

Don’t be scared, yeah, well

I put my hands up in the air sometimes and I’m like oh, no, legs won’t follow!

So now I lie back and I rock the rhyme with my enchanting finger dancing

So though we don’t go out

We gon’ rock this house

Where digits dance all night

Until our hands get tight

So move them left to right

Do the swivel swirl

And if you’re feeling bold

Do the cha-cha twirl

Happy April Fools Day, All! Now to quote Kevin Bacon in Footloose: Let’s Daaaannnccceeee!!!!!

Episode XX: Pudding Legs

Episode XX: Pudding Legs

 Welcome, folks! I’m changing things up a bit today. Instead of having a Words of Wisdom segment, I have written a lil’ parody called “Pudding Legs” to the tune of “Part of Your World” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I was inspired to do this by my own uncooperative legs who just haven’t wanted to hold me up lately. So instead of getting angry at them, I decided to try laughter instead!

This Parody is for everyone dealing with a chronic illness who has ever felt like they have shaky, unreliable “Pudding Legs” holding them up. Share, enjoy, and feel free to use this to serenade your own pudding legs when they’re getting the better of you. It won’t make them stronger, but it may make you smile. Enjoy!

 “Pudding Legs”

(To the tune of “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid)

Lyrics Written and Performed by The Female Yoda,  February 20th, 2014

Look at these legs

Aren’t they sweet?

Compare them to custard, and I have them beat

Pudding legs under my weight

Aren’t they- so sedate?

Wobbly and soft just like a rose

You should be glad you don’t stand up on those

Pudding legs wobbling my way

Feeling like styrofoam

I’ve got tendons and skin cells a-plenty

I’ve got ligaments down to the floor

Oh, those fingers and toes? I’ve got twenty.

But who cares? No big deal. I want more!

I wanna stand like the cupcakes stand

Strong and delicious and dense like mortar

Hangin’ around on those- what’s that word again?

Oh. Cookie Sheets.

These pudding legs, they don’t get too far

Flour is required for rising, growing

Raising up tall on your own so you don’t fall

Up where they rise

Up where they grow

Why are these puddings legs so hard to stow

Right under me

Wish I could be

More like that dough

What would I give if I could live out of these wobblers

What would I take to spend a day: cake on a stand

Betchya on toast

Or on a roast

You really get to sink your teeth in

Soft but solid

Now I’m clotted

Down to my toes!

And I wanna go where the donuts go

Happy and cheerful with too much sugar

I’d even take being round to be strong below

Oh, pudding legs

Made up with eggs

Runny and weightless and feel more like pegs

But hopefully

One day I’ll be

More like a tree

 I dedicate this song to all of you out there who have ever had, or have at this time, Pudding Legs. If you know someone with a chronic illness who would understand this parody and could use a smile, please share this post. We Pudding Legs need to stick together. :)

Pudding A Smile On Your Face,

(I just heard half of you groan… yeah, I admit it, that was a pretty bad pun..)

Stay Strong,

The Foda
