about

To be clear, we don't hate the actor and we don't want to be all Dark Side on Jar Jar. We just think it would have been better if he wasn't included -

But more than that, we believe that we can make peace between Star Wars and Stark Trek fans on this one point. It's something we all can agree on.

Written during FAWM 2014

lyrics

For a long time there's been
A hostile vibration
Between the Republic
And the Federation

You’ve got warp engines
We've we’ve got light speed
You’ve got no money
We’ve got tons of greed

You’ve got directives
And we’ve got the Force
Surely there’s a middle ground
Where we can plot our course

Jar Jar Must go
Jar Jar Must Go
Please can you help us make it so
How we got here we'll never know
But on this we can all agree
Jar Jar Must Go

He was supposed to be comic
But we were not relieved
We’re pretty sure the thing
Was ill conceived

When he arrived we thought
We would not survive
Then we remembered
How you pulled through
After Star Trek Number 5

Jar Jar Must go
Jar Jar Must Go
Please can you help us make it so
How we got here we'll never know
But on this we can all agree
Jar Jar Must Go

Maybe you could do your
Slingshot thing back around the sun
And bring us back to the time
When it was only Obi-Wan

Or maybe use your transporter
Accidently lose the pattern lock
Or maybe we can do a mind meld
Between Master Yoda and Spock

You leave the Ewok special out of this
I know that one’s hard
But we’ll stay out of your arguments
about Kirk and Picard

Jar Jar Must go
Jar Jar Must Go
Please can you help us make it so
How we got here we'll never know
But on this we can all agree
Jar Jar Must Go
