jkathrens Hoot Hoots share my fear of Ewoks. Maybe those bloodthirsty bears were only a nightmare... Favorite track: Bloodthirsty Bears.

Jewel Loree "Bloodthirsty Bears" made me laugh out loud for at least the first 15 times I listened to it. It's also just the catchiest thing ever. Favorite track: Bloodthirsty Bears.

about

The Hoot Hoots Seattle

Seattle power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their newest album, Colorpunch. ... more

Track Name: Impressive
I've got a T16
I'm the best pilot in the outer rim
I've got a teenage dream
I'm gonna find Darth Vader and stick it to him

But I hear Tosche Station has sexy new power converters
So that's where I'm gonna go
Don't confuse me with scruffy nerf herders

I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Everyone knows that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Didn't you know that I'm impressive
But I can't fight the Empire yet

I've got a new X Wing
One Death Star kill under my belt
I've got a part time fling
Processing emotions that I've never felt before
And what's more!

I had a pretty tough year
nearly froze to death
got bossed around
by a man with pointy ears
But I'm learning
yeah I'm learning to
surpass all my peers
I don't really have any
but I made a few rocks float
Cmon that's pretty cool
I hope that's made one thing clear

Yeah I know that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Didn't you know that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Am I trying to hard to be impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
I know I can be impressive
But I'm not quite a Jedi yet

I've got a family
Relationships are complicated
My sister once kissed me
I'm so glad we never dated
Now let's talk about my dad

He turned my best friend into a carbon slab
Then he chopped off my best hand
And He murdered my mentor
And He tortured my sister

Now he wants me to be
His right handless man
I gotta stop him
But I'm not sure if I'm ready
Tho I'll do the best that I can

Yeah I know that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Haven't you heard that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Didn't you know that I'm impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
Am I trying to hard to be impressive
(I'm impressaaaeeeeve)
I know I can be impressive

I'm impressive
Even my scum bag dad knows I'm impressive
I'm impressive
But how am I supposed to know if I'm a Jedi yet
Track Name: Bloodthirsty Bears
I was trained to pilot a speeder
Through a forest like thread through the needle
I can wield the deadliest weapons
My hands are a tangible extension

Of my leaders quest for order
I’m Death in the form of a soldier
But there was a gap in my training
I don’t know how to compare the

Sheer. Raw. Ferocity.
That descended from the trees of the forest moon
Without any warning

Bloodthirsty bears, they were everywhere
Bloodthirsty bears falling out of the air
Bloodthirsty bears crawling everywhere
I can never forget their murderous stare

Uh,
That sounds suspicious
We’ve got some questions

(Did they have blasters?)
Not exactly
(Were they super massive?)
They were 3 feet tall
(Were they Jedi masters?)
Uhh, probably not?
(Did they at least run faster than you?)
No, they were cuddly and cute

That’s why
We were so surprised
To look at them and see
The true nature of evil in their eyes
Go ahead and laugh
Make your jokes, I don’t care
When they come for you, you’ll know
That their hunger for violence is beyond compare

Bloodthirsty bears, they were everywhere
Bloodthirsty bears falling out of the air
Bloodthirsty bears crawling everywhere
I can never forget their murderous stare

That soulless glare follow me everywhere
Those beady black eyes follow me everywhere
Track Name: YT1300
I hear you fellas need my spaceship (oh oh yeah)
Haven’t you heard of it it's kinda (the best of its kind)
My best buddy hear can tell you (oh oh yeah)
We've got the fastest hunk of junk that (you could find)

I hear you’ve got Imperial trouble
Well that’s gonna cost you double
You say for that you could get your own ship, well kid
Who’s gonna fly it?
Do we have an agreement?
Will I see you in a little bit?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I guess I’ll seen you at Docking Bay 94

And then you’ll get to see my spaceship
She don’t look like much but she’s got it (where it counts)
Yeah you’ll get to see my spaceship
She don’t look like much but she’s got it (where it counts)

Where did she run off to?
Where did she run off to?

I just found my spaceship (oh oh yeah)
I’ve become old searching each system (one at a time)
Yeah she looks a little different (oh oh yeah)
But there’s no question in my mind that (she is mine)

But I ran in to a couple
On board who caused some trouble
With authorities with whom I have picked a bone

But all that action
Was all a big distraction
Hey hey hey hey, hey hey hey hey
You big old fuzzball wouldn’t you say it was worth the wait?

It feels so great to be home

Because I’ve finally found my spaceship
She don’t look like much but she’s worth it (she’s so worth it)
Yeah I finally found my spaceship
She don’t look like much but she’s worth it (she’s so worth it)

It feels so great to be home
It feels so great to be home
It feels so great to be home
It feels so great to be home
Hey Chewie we’re home
Track Name: Point of View
He settled down in a home
In the desert alone
Year after year slipped by

He met a headstrong kid
He tried to mentor him
He let slip he knew how the boy's father died

But the story he told was factually light
Years later the kid asked why
The old man felt so compelled to lie, and he said

There’s a little bit of lie in every truth
From a certain point of view
There’s a little bit of lie

After the old man fell
He came back just to tell the boy where to find
The last of his kind, and after

A mean hook from a wampa
A crash land in a swamp
The boy thought this better be worth my time

And then the boy met this weird little freak
Who rummaged around in his camp saying I know what you seek
The boy rolled his eyes but he was in for a surprise
Cause that’s what you get for judging others by their size

His new master could’ve written a book
On how riddles and white lies can sometimes get you
A little bit closer to the truth

There’s a little bit of lie in every truth
From a certain point of view
There’s a little bit of lie
Track Name: Get Out My Head
(Rey to Kylo)

Everybody knows, everybody knows
You’ve got daddy issues
Does it make you mad? Does it make you sad?
That I can resist you?

Did you see the ocean? Did you see the land?
That I always dream of?
Well, you’ve had your look, yeah you’ve had your fun
Now you've had enough so

I said Get out my Head

You shoulda seen your face, the panic in your eyes
When I saw right through you
Do you really think, do you think it’s wise
To talk to the dead and why do you

Wanna be just like your grandaddy?
You know you’ll never be half as strong as that monstrosity
Now I know you’re pretty weak when you lose control
You are pretty good, but I am a natural

So go and run to your keeper
And let him know you couldn’t get it done
You might think that I am weaker
But this change in me has just begun

I said Get Out My Head
Track Name: Empire
You’re up there, I know you can see me
You’re up there, and you want to delete me
But I’m not going that easy
You want a piece of me? Well you better bring, you better bring an army

I am an ideal and you are
A black storm, a disease
Ravaging what you see
I know you think you can break me
I know you think you can kill me
If I fall I promise you’ll see me
Again, but I will be stronger than you
Can ever conceive
So you better bring, you better bring an army
Track Name: Special Edition
Yub Nubbers
Are the one ones
Who know what happened
In the trees

Sebastian Shaw
Han shot first
Nobody can change what's history

Accept the past
You cant change it anyhow
The ink is dry
You'll only smudge it up now

When you meddle with the movie
You get dirty, don't you know

it's ours
(There is nothing special about this edition)
Everyone's in the world

Every movie
Should end with drums
And a party full of fuzzy tiny bears

And some droids
And the original ghosts
And wookie hugs for everybody gathered there

Movie done
Why change it anyhow?
The ink is dry
You'll only smudge it up now

When you meddle with the movie
You get dirty, don't you know

it's ours
There is nothing special about this edition
Everyone's in the world

There is nothing special about this edition
This is proof how one can subtract by addition
Why put so much effort in needless revision
There is nothing special about this edition

There is plenty special in the first edition
We love every so-called mistake and omission
There's no need to tinker searching for perfection
There is plenty special in the first edition
