A parody of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" by Jim Croce, about Boba Fett from the original "Star Wars" Trilogy.

lyrics

Well a long time ago,
In a galaxy far away,
There was no evil greater
Than the man Darth Vader
And his Empire was here to stay.

Now Vader,
Needed some help,
Ya see, he's searching for his long lost son,
In the whole Empire,
Found the man he'd hire,
Jabba's Number One hired gun.

He was bad, bad Boba Fett.
The best bounty hunter you ever met
He ransomed off poor old Han
Help, help me Obi Wan.

Now Boba,
Tailed the Falcon,
To the Cloud City with ease,
And then just like fate,
Boba had Luke's bait
So they threw Han in the Carbon Freeze.

He's got a jet pack, armor and rifle,
He's got the Slave One to help him stalk,
He's got websites to scan,
He's got millions of fans,
He's got four lines of dialogue.

He was bad, bad Boba Fett.
The best bounty hunter you ever met
He ransomed off poor old Han
Help, help me Obi Wan.

Well Boba,
Got paid Han's bounty,
Cause Jabba set a hefty price,
And at the edge of the lair,
Sat a slave named Leia,
And Ooh! That girl looks nice!

Then when Luke came,
To the rescue,
Jabba,
Threw a fit.
Boba Fett and his henchmen
Led a quick apprehension
And took them,
The Sarlaac Pit.

He was bad, bad Boba Fett.
The best bounty hunter you ever met
He ransomed off poor old Han
Help, help me Obi Wan.

Well when Boba,
He flew over,
To fight Han during Luke's attack,
He took a wack in the back,
Flew off track,
He went smack!
And then he ended up a Sarlaac snack!

He was bad, bad Boba Fett.
The best bounty hunter you ever met
He ransomed off poor old Han
Help, help me Obi Wan.

He was bad, bad Boba Fett.
The best bounty hunter you ever met
He ransomed off poor old Han
Help, help me Obi Wan.

I hope to see him back in Chapter One,
If not, his saga's done.
