Moves Like Jar Jar

Eddie at The Phantom Menace: The Holiday asked me to do something for “Jar Jar June” (now coming to an end) and instead of writing something profound, I came up with a filk. Please pardon the bad Gunganese and silly lyrics, for I haven’t written a filk in a long time and to be honest, I don’t like Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” but for the filking opportunity it created. If you’re really good, I’ll post my unpublished midichlorian filk from 2000.

Moves Like Jar Jar

ust shoot for the stars
If it feelsa right
And aim for meesa heart
If yousa feel like
And take meesa away and make it okey-day
I swear meesa behave

Yousa wanted control
So wesa waited
I put on a show
Now I Bombad General
Yousa say I’m a kid
My ego is maxi-big
I don’t give an icky icky goo
And it goes like this

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss mesa, I’m a klutz
And I’ll show you

All the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar

I don’t need to try to throw a booma
Look into my eyestalks I’ll own yousa

With them moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar

[Verse 2:]
Maybe it’s hard
When the gasser’s broken and scarred
Nothing feels right
But when yousa with me
I’ll make yousa believe
That I’ve got the key

Oh
So get in the bongo
Wesa can ride it
Wherever yousa want
Get inside it
And yousa want to steer
But look out for the Opee Sea Creature
I’ll take it from here (Oh! Yeah yeah!)
And it goes like this (Uh)

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you (Uh)
Kiss mesa, I’m a klutz
And I’ll show you

All the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar

I don’t need to try to throw a booma (Oh, yeah)
Look into my eyestalks I’ll own yousa

With them moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar (Yeah yeah)
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar

[Bridge:]
Yousa wanna know how to make mesa smile
Give me a brisky morning munchen to eat
And if I share mesa secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this

So watch and learn
I won’t show yousa twice
Bouncing from head to toe, swinging nice
But if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this (Ay! Ay! Ay! Aaay!)

And it goes like this

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue (Take me by the tongue)
And I’ll know you
Kiss mesa, I’m a klutz
And I’ll show you (Yeah yeah yeah!)

All the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
(Oh, yeah)
I don’t need to try to throw a booma
Look into my eyestalks I’ll own yousa

With them moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar
I’ve got the moves like Jar Jar

    Great filk song. Maybe you could use your gift to make a song off of 10CC’s “Deadlock Holiday”
    “I don’t like Jar Jar (no no)
    I love ‘im.
    I don’t like Gungans.
    I love ’em”

    I never could come up with the rest.
    Take a crack at it. You can have the rights.

    hahahahaha!!! Thanks so much, LP, you ROCK! That’s going up on tomorrow’s JJJ entry. “Moves Like Jagger” isn’t my favorite song either, but you’ve just made it forever more palatable, as whenever I hear it, these lyrics will be what I’m hearing!

  3. Adam D. Bram (Collor Pondrat) Says:

    That….was…..AWESOME!!!

    I don’t particularly like the original song either. So you’re going to woo someone by strutting around like a rooster having a stroke?

    Lol, bravo.
