我這個叫安納金的孩子

Weird Al Yankovic!!!
最近大家都在傳他登上 billboard第九名的歌曲 "White and Nerdy",台譯"又白又宅" (笑!)。

在 YouTube認真了一個下午,我最喜歡的是這個改編自 Don Mclean 70'年代的民謠老歌 "American Pie"的這首歌曲—
"The Saga Begins" — 五分鐘複習完 Star Wars 首部曲。


歌詞:(隨便翻幾段)

A long, long time ago
 很久很久以前
In a galaxy far away
 在某個遙遠的銀河系裡
Naboo was under an attack
 那卜遭到了攻擊
And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn
 我以為我跟金魁剛
Could talk the federation in
 可以跟貿易同盟談談
To maybe cutting them a little slack
 也許可以讓他們休息一下
But their response, it didn't thrill us
 但…他們的反應…那嚇不了我們的
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
 他們關上門想要殺死我們
We escaped from that gas
 我們從瓦斯毒氣中逃了出來
Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
 然後遇到了恰恰跟他老大
We took a bongo from the scene
 我們在那裡得到了一艘船 (we took a bongo是雙關語,意同erection...)
And we went to Theed to see the Queen
 開過呆頭鯨那邊去找皇后
We all wound up on Tatooine
 最後又到了塔圖因
That's where... we found... this boy
 就在這…我們找到了…這個孩子

Oh,
 喔喔喔~
My my this here Anakin guy
 我這個叫安納金的孩子。
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
 也許有天他會是達斯維達,但現在只是個小兔崽子。
He left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
 他走出家門給媽咪一個再見吻,然後說著:
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
 "很快我一定會變成絕地武士" "很快我一定會變成絕地武士"

Did you know this junkyard slave
Isn't even old enough to shave
But he can use the Force, they say

Ahh, do you see him hitting on the queen
Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday

Well, I know he built C-3PO
And I've heard how fast his pod can go
And we were broke, it's true
So we made a wager or two
He was a prepubescent flyin' ace
And the minute Jabba started off that race
Well, I knew poop who would win first place
Oh yes, it was our boy

We started singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Now we finally got to Coruscant
The Jedi Council we knew would want
To see how good the boy could be
So we took him there and we told the tale
How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
And he might fulfill that prophecy
Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
Could he bring balance, to the Force?
They interviewed the kid
All training they forbid
Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
And Qui-Gon said "Now listen here"
"Just stick it in your pointy ear"
"I still will teach this boy"

He was singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

We caught a ride back to Naboo
'Cause Queen Amidala wanted to
I frankly would've liked to stay
We all fought in that epic war
And it wasn't long at all before
Little Hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
And in the end some Gungans died
Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
A lot of folks were croakin'
The battle droids were broken
And the Jedi I admire most
Met up with Darth Maul and now he's toast
Well, I'm still here and he's a ghost
I guess I'll train this boy

And I was singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi, Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

We were singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"


不少愛好者幫他配上了影片,像是這個



當然 Weird Al老兄十幾年來可是累積了不少名曲:

改編 Michael Jackson熱門MV" Eat It "、"Fat";
放在網路上公開下載的 MP3歌曲,歌名卻叫 "Don't Download this song";
可愛的黏土動畫,"Jurassic Park"、"Weasel Stomping Day";
改編 Coolio的 Rap歌曲 "Gansters' Paradise"的 "Amish Paradise"

還有另外一個我的最愛,由同好者自己拍的 MV
James Blunt的 "You're beautiful" —

"You're pitiful"
