Nick Winters: [singing] Ah, Star Wars! Nothing but Star Wars! Gimme those Star Wars, don't let them end! Ah, Star Wars! If they should bar wars, please let these Star Wars stay! And, hey! How about that nutty Star Wars bar? Can you forget all those creatures in there? And, hey! Darth Vader in that black and evil mask, did he scare you as much as he scared me?
