I pledge allegiance to Darths & Droids;
Then all will worship the Darths & Droids,
CreditsAll instruments and vocals by Evan Dean.
Engineered by Andrew Shellshear.
Written by Evan Dean.
This song was written for us by Evan Dean of The People People, who is a friend of Andrew S.'s. Check out his band page, and maybe buy a CD off him!
Oh, and the song is about our other webcomic, Darths & Droids.
We have a small project going where we invite you to record yourself singing the Darths & Droids Pledge of Allegiance and send us the result. If you want to join in, here's an instrumental version of the song to use.
"Darths & Droids Pledge of Allegiance" in Hebrew (0:39, 0.76 MB) - translated and sung by עלייאיסט.
הרני נאמן לדרת'ס אנד דרוידס,
יודו וימליכו לדרת'ס אנד דרוידס
Hebrew Lyrics Translation
I hereby declare myself loyal to Darths & Droids
will give thanks to and crown Darths & Droids
Hebrew Programme Notes
The first two lines of the second verse consist of some very common motifs in Jewish prayer. The third line is a bastardisation of a quote from Joseph Trumpeldor, the Israeli equivalent to Patrick Henry, who said "It is good to die for one's country", the Israeli equivalent to "Give me liberty or give me death."
