  1. I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
    Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
    S-O-D-A, soda

    I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
    I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "yoda"
    Y-O-D-A, Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I've been around, but I ain't never seen
    A guy who looks like a muppet, but he's wrinkled and green
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
    How he can lift me in the air just by raising his hand
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I left home just a week before
    And I've never ever been a Jedi before
    But Obi Wan, he set me straight, of course
    He said, "Go to Yoda and he'll show you the Force"

    Well I'm not the kind that would argue with Ben
    So it looks like I'm gonna start all over again
    With my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo
    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo
    Yoda

    Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo
    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo
    Yoda

    So I used the Force
    I picked up a box
    I lifted some rocks
    While I stood on my head
    Well, I won't forget what Yoda said

    He said, "Luke, stay away from the darker side
    And if you start to go astray, let the Force be your guide"
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    "I know Darth Vader's really got you annoyed
    But remember, if you kill him, then you'll be unemployed"
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I heard my friends really got in a mess
    So I'm gonna have to leave Yoda, I guess
    But I know that I'll be coming back some day
    I'll be playing this part 'till I'm old and grey

    The long-term contract that I had to sign
    Says I'll be making these movies till the end of time
    With my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda
    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda
    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda
    Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

  2. So, it was back in the day when this song first came out.  My friends ask me to ride along and we were collecting beer cans or bottles for some high school competition.  I had a great time and this song came on the radio.  1971, I guess, I can't quite remember now, but this song will always remind me of that very day.  I cherish this song for the memories.

  3. We had a kitten that we thought was a girl so we named her Lola after the street near where we found her. Few days later we realized she was a he and we then called him Lola-Bob. He wasn't even named after this song and yet…
