The Reign Of Palpatine (Bryan Adams - Summer of '69) Lyrics

(copyright Steven Cavanagh 1993-2002)

I got my brand new X-Wing
right off the assembly line
White, 'n with that streak of red
I loved to hear the engine whine.

Me and some guys from home
we shot womp rats out in my backyard
Deak just quit, Windy got drafted
Biggs was blown into a million shards.

But flying over the Death Star
I thought that he would last forever
and when I heard old Ben
I knew that it was now or never
that was the best shot of my life.

I got trained but my friends were in trouble
so I had a job to do
I flew to Cloud City on Bespin-
an' that's when I met you, yeah!

Duelling there among the clouds
you told me that we'd rule forever
and when you cut off my hand
I knew that I would join you never!
that was the worst day of my life.

Oh yeah!
Back in the reign of Palpatine

I had to go get Han from Jabba's palace,
the poor guy was sick and blind-
I thought Yoda would last forever, forever, Oh!

I fought you again above Endor
Your boss, he tried to make me mad.
I said no, so then he tried to kill me
That's when you really came through, Dad.

Standing with him held up high
You threw him and he fell forever.
People would say it was me, but
I knew that we did it together.
That was the best day of my life.

Oh yeah!
Back in the reign of Palpatine
uh huh..
It was the reign of Palpatine..
