BonTempo lyrics

Bespin, the Betrayal

Bespin, the betrayal; Who?
The Millennium falcon's hyperdrive is severely damaged
It escapes the clutches of the empire
Floating away from an imperial star cruiser posing as garbage
The nearest port of rescue, Cloud City, the planet Bespin.
Followed closely by Boba Fett's ship
The Millennium Falcon cruises into Bespin
And is greeted by sometimes rouge, sometimes friend, Lando Calrissian
Who immediately of course offers Carrie Fisher copious amounts of cocaine

"I can knock that sweet, sweet candy"

Ushered inside all seems well in Cloud City
But that is not the case...
C3PO wandering into a restricted area discovers the truth...
The Empire...

"So high on cocaine"

...has arrived before them.
Alerted to their presence by Boba Fett, scumbag to the stars.

"Oh so high on that cocaine..."

Our heroes are lead to a dining hall and betrayed by Lando Calrissian!
C3PO was in pieces...

"Oh Solo no... no..."

Han Solo is frozen in carbonite.
Only to be re-awakened in Jabba the Hut's lair in Return of the Jedi
A ridiculous film that ruined the entire trilogy.

"Good theme on the skin."

Coming down off an all night coke binge
Carrie Fisher along with Chewbacca reassembled the dismantled C3PO
And launch an escape.
Unbeknownst to them, Luke has arrived to confront his father...
Darth Vader.

Who let's be honest...
Is really the only badass in the entire fucking series...
And has the coolest costume.

"Oh I dressed up as him for Halloween..."

Realizing that he has betrayed his friends
Lando Calrissian makes a pathetic attempt to make amends and helps them escape.
Of course he is only after the tail.
With Han out of the way it's all the white dipp.

"Gimme that sweet sweet space love honey"

There was a fight in there of course between Luke and Darth Vader
And Luke's hand gets chopped off but who gives a shit.
He falls down a tube and of course as luck would have it...
A one and a billion chance...
As they're flying by...
They notice him hanging from some scaffolding by his leg.

Not unlike you would be able to see an ant from the thirty-first floor
Of a building as it wandered across the grass...
In a park...
72 blocks away.

Bespin, the betrayal brought to you by BonTempo.

Print it thanks...
Thanks for that...
That's great...
Anything else you'd like to yell while we're recording?

Am I recording a fricking song here or what?
