Wrote another couple songs for my nerd music project. I like this one a lot.
The Ballad of Han and Greedo
There’s a bar down in Mos Eisley
Where everybody knows
About the time a bounty hunter
Came lookin’ for Han Solo
Now you may have heard this story
It’s been told around the universe
But no one really knows for sure
Just exactly who shot first
The bounty hunter’s name was Greedo
He was sent by Jabba the Hut
A lousy, rotten, son of a bitch
Who’d do most anything for a buck
Well Han Solo was a gambler
And he’d accrued a bit of debt
Jabba thought he’d teach him a lesson
That he wouldn’t soon forget.
The bounty hunter saw our hero
Across the bar with Luke and Ben
And he took the opportunity
Cause it might not come again.
Solo said “I’ve got your money”
But Greedo told him “It’s too late.
Jabba doesn’t like your kind
You had your chance to pay.”
Greedo told him “Maybe the big man
Will just take your ship and not your head.”
And Han just laughed and glared right back
Said “Not until the day I’m dead.”
They stared each other down
And Greedo said “That day’s today.”
Then they both pulled their guns
And when the smoke had cleared away…
It was the bounty hunter who lay there
Lifeless where he sat.
And Han Solo just stood up and left
And he never once looked back.
Now some say Greedo was the first to shoot
And maybe he just missed.
But other’s say there’s no way in hell
Cause Han had the quicker wrist.
So maybe it was just good timing.
And maybe someone’s lousy aim.
But you can’t deny
And I’d bet my hide
The force was with Han that day.
