A Decade That I Used to Know

I graduated high school on June 29, 2002.  I cannot believe that it’s been ten years. A decade out of high school!  I feel so old.  I can’t even remember for the life of me where I thought I would be ten years down the road on the day of graduation. Well, I guess I have an idea, but it definitely wasn’t how things turned out, haha. If we don’t fight life from happening, things always turn out the way they should, even when we least expect it.  I think on that day, I was just excited to go to college and sad to leave my friends and teachers behind. I had some great high school friends who I still consider to be good friends today.  OH and fun fact: I got my learner’s permit on June 29, 2000.  I guess that means I’ve been “driving” for twelve years.  Holy crap, I can’t believe it’s been ten years.

Anyway, I know I shared this on Facebook, but I have to put it here so I can always know where to find it again in the future.  I LOVE this parody of “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

I want to give credit where credit’s due because I have mad respect for people who come up with these genius ideas and share them with the world for free.  I copied the credits and lyrics from their YouTube page and am going to post them after the break if you’re interested.  I may even buy it on iTunes, that’s how much I love this parody right now lol.

LYRICS

[DARTH:]
Now and then I think of when I was in power
Like choking people with the Force until they died
But then you told them all my history
And took away my masculinity
And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.

You are now addicted to an overuse of graphics
And making Greedo shoot first? Han shot first.
So when you tried to have the Force make sense
You introduced the midichlorians
And what’s the deal with having me be dubbed over (Noooooooooo!)

But you didn’t have to change it all.
Make ’em like they never happened and the fans are nothing
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a Bantha and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to make them blow
Have your friends direct your movies and they’ll turn out better.
You think that you don’t need them though
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[GEORGE LUCAS:]
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over.
I had them believing that the first three films were really done.
But Star Wars will be done my way
I don’t care what you have to say
I think that they should let it go
And they’ll never get the Blu-Ray of the Star Wars that you used to know

[DARTH:]
You didn’t have to change it all.
No more puppets, no more practical effects or nothin’
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a wampa and that feels so cold.
No you didn’t have to sell your soul
Do we really need to watch them all again in 3D?
Jar Jar was an all time low
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[x2]
The movies
(I used to know)
The movies
(What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know)

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
