lyrics

Jar Jar blinks
Qui-Gon is gone
Whatever Lucas thinks is so clean but oddly empty
Nothing going on
There are trade negotiations
There are Jedi meditations
Can't bring myself to care, because

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars

They can race on desert planets
They can dive beneath the core
What I need is decent acting
What I want is something more
They can draw a thousand robots fighting ships in outer space
But no CGI can fix the look of boredom on my face

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars

Jar Jar blinks
Qui-Gon is gone
Whatever Lucas thinks is so clean but oddly empty
Nothing going on

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
