Viva Mos Eisly

Bright light sabers gonna take their toll
Gonna take their toll on me.
Got a whole lot of cargo sitting in the hold
So get those moorings free.
There’s a thousand plastic troopers waitin’ out there
Got a Wookie with less sense than hair.
And I’m just a scoundrel with flair to spare.

Viva Mos Eisley, Viva Mos Eisley.

How I wish that I could score
And wipe my debt with Jabba clean away.
Can’t turn my back on the Cantina door
Can’t even sleep a minute a day.
Got an old man, a young punk and a whining droid.
Got cruisers on the scanner to avoid.
All I need’s a good ship and an asteroid.

Viva Mos Eisley, Viva Mos Eisley.

Viva Mos Eisley with your Jawas trashin’
And your Tusken Raiders smashin’
All the Hutt’s own domain.
Viva Mos Eisley turnin’ saints into pond slime,
Turnin’ dreams into small crimes.
If you fall in with the Hutt
You’ll never get away again.

I’m gonna keep on the run
Until the mission’s done
Don’t know what I got into this time.
And if I wind up dead well
Seems I’m a big hero despite my own design.
I’m gonna foil the Empire’s evil plot.
Leia seems to hate me but I think she’s hot.
Let me hit Ti-fighters with every shot.

Viva Mos Eisley, Viva Mos Eisley,
Viva, Viva Mos Eisley.

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
