about

This song is based on true events that took place recently with my kids. My son was busted for lying right to my face about something and my daughter´s story is almost exactly as it appears in the song. I have always loved the original Star Wars movie and this is my tribute to just how influential the Star Wars universe has been on pop culture. May the force be with you!

lyrics

Home sweet home, deep in my business, I hear a crash.
My thoughts rush to my little son. I get there in a flash.
Smiling at me covered from head to toe in a puddle of paint.
Is it exactly what it looks like? He says it aint.
He says...

These are not the droids you´re looking for.
These are not the droids.
I don´t know nothin´ bout, nothin´´bout no noise.
I was just sittin´ here playin´with my toys.
These are not the droids you´re looking for.
These are not the droids.

My daughter´s in love not with a boy but with her phone.
She can´t live without some new app some new ringtone.
I dare to take her love away after strike three.
She claims that she has lost her phone then lies and lies to me.
She says...

These are not the droids you´re looking for.
These are not the droids.
Snapchat? What´s that? Steamy selfies? Don´t get paranoid.
I´ll always be your little princess. I don´t even like boys.
These are not the droids you´re looking for.
These are not the droids.

Learn to lie like a Jedi
Learn to lie like a Jedi
Cross your heart cross your fingers hope not to die
Look them right in the eye wave your hand and lie.

Sometimes I look into the mirror and to my surprise.
I catch myself gazing deeply into my own eyes.
Searching for a spark some glimmer to recognize.
I´m buying everything I´m selling. I´m hypnotized.
Sayin...

These are not the droids I´m looking for.
These are not the droids.
How this monkey sees no evil, how he avoids
Dealing with things he can´t handle. Another one of his ploys.
These are not the droids you´re looking for.
These are not the droids.
