about

This song is a parody of "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, about the "Star Wars" Disney+ TV show "The Mandalorian". Why? Because this is the way.

And YES, I know that "the Child" is not actually Yoda. He is just the same unidentified species that Yoda is, so everyone online calls the kiddo 'Baby Yoda', and likely will continue to do so until either Yoda's species is identified, or the Mandalorian gives him an actual name. So, for the purposes of this song, I am identifying the Child as a "Small Round Yoda". I have spoken.

(4 measure intro)

[The Armorer: "When one chooses to walk the way of the Mandalore, you are both hunter and prey. How can one be a coward if one chooses this way of life?... ...This is the way."]

Yeah, I'm gonna
save the life of this small round Yoda. Gonna -
- fly high while we lie low. I'm gonna
save the life of this small round Yoda. Gonna - [*SFX: Gonk, Gonk]
- fly. A long time ago…

I am a
Mandalorian, - named Din Djarin.
Kin have been chagrin, - and to show our skin's a sin.
Greef got me a job, huh. - Client's got the fob.
He been in the Empire, slummin' skid row like a slob, now.
Said 'We'll pay you with bescar, sir.'
I'll update my armor.
Got help from an Ugnaught farmer. [Kuiil: "I have spoken."]
I'm not a blerg charmer. [SFX: *Blerg noise*]
I.G. sorta crashed in. Laser guns a'-blastin'.
Bomb just like a Scud. A disposable assassin.
Gunfire like crazy. Found the asset maybe.
Fifty years old, wait, he's, an actual baby?!
Gonna have to pay the piper.
I'm a foundling swiper.
Flyin' through the space that's hyper, [SFX: *baby pooping*]
and I'll change his diaper.

Yeah, I'm gonna
save the life of this small round Yoda. Gonna -
- fly. Fight a space rhino. I'm gonna
save the life of this small round Yoda. Gonna -
- fly. Waves his hand solo.

Pretty soon, Cara Dune, fought her when I flipped in.
Blasters at our heads, Child is watchin', sippin' Lipton.
Why do people love me? I'm the 'X' in this equation:
'What if Boba Fett had lived up to his reputation?'
Moff Gideon better step on back! I got a
flamethrower gauntlet and fly jet pack. So if you
try to kidnap my small round Yoda, I can
bring you in warm, or I can bring you in cold.

Yeah, I'm gonna
save the life of this small round Yoda. Gonna -
- fly some place I don't know. I dedi-
-cate my life to this small round Yoda. Gonna -
- fly, do I hear banjo?

(4 measure outro)

[Cara Dune: "Take care of this little one."]
[Greef Karga: "Or maybe, it'll take care of you."]
[Mando: "That's not a toy."]

Yoda: Ooh! Crunchy frog! Hoo hoo hoo hoo!
