Storm Trooper Clone

This is a parody of "Fortunate Son" Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Some guys are cloned to be a trooper,
Ooh, Darth Vader’s goons,
And when the lord walks out of his ship,
Ooh, He’ll send you off to the moon,
Pew , pew, pew, pew, pew, pew I aint no fighter pilot,
Pew x 6 I aint no storm trooper clone.

Some guys are cloned blaster gun in hand,
Oh, They know how to shoot, lord
But when the general comes to the door
Ooh, the place looks like a shooting range.

Pew x 6 I aint no sharpshooting clone,
Pew x 6 I aint no storm trooper clone,

One boy will be the new leader,
Ooh, He’ll send you off to war, lord
And when you ask them “How many should we kill”,
The only answer “All, all, all”.

Pew x 6 I aint no mass murderer,
Pew x 6 I aint no storm trooper clone,
Pew x 6 I aint no storm trooper clone,
Pew x 6 I want to be a rebel son.
