about

The Jedi drinking songs series continues as foretell the future with the merger of Disney and Star Wars. Stay tuned to see this predication realized.

In 2012, Disney bought Star Wars. We were a bit concerned with the future of the franchise. Sure, it couldn't do any worse than the prequels. But could it do better? Or was it just destined to be exactly as we predicted in this third part of the Jedi drinking songs series.

Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brob-din-nahg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance music duo. They take traditional Irish and Scottish songs and give them a comedic twist. Their unique brand of music on the autoharp, recorder, and mandolin put Austin, Texas on the Celtic music map and made them one of the most-popular Celtic groups online.

Starting in 1999, Brobdingnagian Bards performed coast-to-coast, and in a given month were at a Lord of the Rings Oscar Party, a Celtic festival, or a Science Fiction Convention. However, they were an legendary favorite at Renaissance Faires where they added high-energy and wit to make every show a memorable experience.

The band officially parted ways in 2008, reuniting for occasional concerts. But it was 2018 when these innovators of the Celtic MP3 relaunched their band using Patreon like a record label. This allows them to reunite the Nagians and release all new music!

lyrics

Jedi Mickey
by Marc Gunn and Andrew McKee

Long time ago, a tugboat faraway.
Mickey whistled out a tune bouncing away
He turned color after one too many drinks
Then called up Lucas saying dude... your writing stinks

When Mickey sobered up he called the board to plan,
"I've had a vision, a lightsaber in my hand
We'll finish Star Wars as we wish upon a star
And do it far better with the story... by Pixar."

[to the tune When you Wish upon a Star]
When the mouse wants your franchise
He'll start off licensing for rides.
If you're tired and you need some cash
He'll buy from you......

[chorus]
One part mouse, one part duck
One part Jedi and formulaic luck
A Wookie on my right and a goofy one on my left
Merging these two companies
... is the big test

There's a star destroyer shaped like a mushroom house
The beagle boys stand before a Sith Lord mouse
While far away a Jedi Mouse stares into space
The three moons of tatooine replaced... by Mickey's face

Mickey meets Minnie. The force is strong in her.
He lays a kiss on her. And the fans all hurl
Minnie is his sister. That folks is a shame
Our love for Minnie Mouse will never... be the same

Mickey stabs the Sith. The dark mouse disappears
Wherever there's one Sith Lord, another will appear
A duck steps forward with cloak as black as ink
With Jedi mice and ducks, I'll need... a stronger drink.
