lyrics

Kessel Run
By Adam Fromm

Well, I hope you don’t mind me interrupting you miss
What’s a girl like you doing on a planet like this?
I really wouldn’t mind spending time with you
My name might be Solo, but I’m built for two
A little bit o’ booze, a little bit o’ nookie
And a little joy ride with a seven-foot Wookie
Gonna run

See, I’ve got the Millennium Falcon fired up
She’s hotter than hell and too crazy to catch
I’ve got a double-barreled warp drive running the engine
And half a pound of ganja in the smuggling hatch
Fuzzy dice hanging from the hyperspeed button
Hang on to your hat, girl, ’cause here goes nuthin’
Gonna run
Gonna run
Gonna run

We’re gonna run
Fill up my glass, ain’t gonna say when
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna do the Kessel Run again
Gonna run

Yeah, we’re gonna do the Kessel Run, looking to score
It’s something I’ve only done a thousand times before
I’ve got one hand on the throttle, the other in the stash
You count up the parsecs, I’ll count up the cash
Stormtrooper slugs ain’t gettin’ any nearer
‘Cause they’re just a little freckle in the rearview mirror
Gonna run

So strap yourself in, I’ll show you what she’s got
We’re only breaking the law if we ever get caught
See, I don’t care much about Imperial ships
‘Cause she’s specially designed to give ‘em the slip
Ten times faster, three-quarters lighter
And a hundred times a sexy as an X-wing fighter
Gonna run
Gonna run
Gonna run



We’re gonna run
Fill up my glass, ain’t gonna say when
‘Cause tonight we’re gonna do the Kessel Run again
Gonna run

And if there’s time, we can stop at a little cantina
‘Cause I’m working up a powerful thirst
Or a no-tell motel that we can check into
‘Cause the bedroom is the only place I don’t shoot first
I don’t wanna stay around here any more
Let’s meet down at docking bay 94
We’ll turn the lights down low, get things rollin’
Then you and me can—Hey! Where’re you goin’?
Don’t run away, you can’t do this to me….
[sigh] Looks like it’s you and me again tonight, Chewie
Gonna run
Gonna run
Gonna run
Gonna run
