about

Yes, everybody and his dog has already had fun with the fact that the Star Wars movies are now technically Disney films. However, has anybody yet noticed that Leia is not, in fact, the Disney Princess of Star Wars? This original song is from the point of view of the original trilogy's real Disney Princess: Luke Skywalker.

lyrics

Come Rescue Me

The moons rise
Over the sand.
There's no surprise
Anywhere in this land.
We run the farm.
The Jawas come.
Sandpeople are
Just kind of dumb.
Stuck in a rut,
I know that I
Will never leave.

I search near and far
For somewhere that's green.
Not that you are
Gonna find that on Tatooine.
The stars hang in
The sky and taunt
Me. I cannot have
What I want.
Stuck in this life,
I wish that I
Could just believe

That someone would rescue me.
That I'd have a destiny.
That I could simply slide
Into being what I was meant to be.
And I would save the day
In a galaxy far, far away.
There would be nothing to choose,
And I would be free:
Come rescue me.

I know I
Am meant to be great.
Perhaps I should fly
Off myself...no, I'll just wait.
I need adventure.
Even so,
I've no idea
Where to go.
I guess I could ask
Uncle Owen
And Aunt Beru.

I have got
A lot of dreams,
But they`re not
Worth going to extremes.
I`m discontent;
I`m wanting more,
But someone needs
To get the door
For me, `cause I can`t
Work out what
I`m supposed to do.

Please, someone, come rescue me.
Tell me my destiny.
Help me to simply slide
Into being what I am meant to be.
And I will save the day
In a galaxy far, far away.
There will be nothing to choose,
And I shall be free:
Come rescue me.

And if only I could find a hermit somewhere
Who would hand me some old weapon
And a story from my past.
And if only I could find some droid companions
And some rogue who owned a spaceship,
And a ship that could go really fast.
If only I could run into a princess
And could rescue her by accident
But get the credit anyway.
If only I could win some sort of medal.
I could do it if my family
Weren`t in the way.

The moons set
Under the hill.
I`m chafing, yet
I`m standing here still.
It isn`t right;
It isn`t fair.
The universe
Just doesn`t care,
For if it did,
I know that it
Would send a sign.

I guess
I`ll just have to stay.
It`s more or less
Expected, anyway.
But if fate wants me,
Have no fear:
I`ll be waiting
For it right here.
I wish on the stars;
I wish that they
Would fall in line.

Please, someone, come rescue me.
Tell me my destiny.
Help me to simply slide
Into being what I am meant to be.
And I will save the day
In a galaxy far, far away.
There will be nothing to choose,
And I shall be free:
Come rescue me.

There will be nothing to choose.
There will be nothing to lose.
And somehow, in the end, I shall be free:
Come rescue me.
