Blackadder themes parody – Star Wars

While reading Star Wars: Legacy of the Force, I came up with an idea for a parody because some of the lyrics of the Blackadder music fitted Jacen and his 'journey' to the dark side well. Well, enjoy.

Season 1

Episodes 1 - 5

The sound of boot beats 'cross the glade

Good folk, lock up your son and daughter

Beware the deadly flashing blade

Unless you want to end up shorter

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he rides a pitch-black steed

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he's very bad indeed

Black, his gloves of finest mole

Black, his codpiece made of metal

His horse is blacker than a vole

His pot is blacker than his kettle

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, with many a cunning plan

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, you horrid little man

Episodes 6

So now the wage of sin is paid.

The blade has struck. The black steed grazes

The only sound across the glade,

Is Jacen pushing up the daisies.

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, a shame about the plan

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, farewell you horrid man

Substitutes/Explanations

Black steed – Jacen's personal Star Destroyer Anakin Solo

Season 2

Episode 1

So Skywalker tweaked the Sith Lord's beard

From now, he always shall be single

Relationships are often weird

Especially those without a tingle

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, his taste is rather odd

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, the randy little sod

Oh, Zekk, oh, Zekk, I wish you were the star

Oh, Zekk, oh, Zekk, you're sexier by far

Episode 2

His great ancestor was a king

Although, for only thirty seconds

When put in charge of beheading

He felt that fame and glory beckoned

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, no such bloomin' luck

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, Kaminoan schmuck

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, nothing goes as planned

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, life deals him a bum hand

Episode 3

Darths Revan, Bane and Vader had

Discovered new worlds and new nations

And though Darth Caedus thought them mad

He tried his hand at navigation

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he saw the galaxy's foam

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he should have stayed at home

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he heard the universe's call

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, discovered bugger-all

Episode 4

Take heed the moral of this tale:

Be not a borrower or lender

And, if your finances do fail,

Make sure your banker's not a bender

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, he trusted in the church

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, it left him in the lurch

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, his life was almost done

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, who gives a toss? No one

Episode 5

Darth Caedus couldn't hold his fear

The art of fencing he's not mastered

And I, your merry balladeer

Am also well and truly plastered

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, a bit like Robin Hood

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, but nothing like as good

Darth Cae- hic!, Darth Caedus, I thought that he had died

Darth Caedus, Darth Caedus, the writers must have lied

Episode 6

Beware, all ye who lust for fame

The path of life most uncertain

Darth Caedus thought he won the game

But now the kraut's gone for a burton

Oh, Jaina, oh, Jaina, she beats the Sith by luck

Oh, Jaina, oh, Jaina, she's smarter than a duck

Pellaeon, Pellaeon, intelligent and deep

Pellaeon, Pellaeon, a shame about the sheep

Substitutes/Explanations

Episode 1

Fourth line is a small reference to Anakin and Padme, given how it was handled in the prequel trilogy

Episode 4

I can't really give substitutions for the first few lines, but I guess it could be the elements of trust within the series. 'The church' could be a reference to the Jedi.
