How else can you explain it? A Novelty suggested by the fine trumpeter and neighbor Jack Prichett. I have yet to encounter a more enthusiastic Star Wars freak.

FYI: I've played on several of Jack's fine trad Jazz releases here in NOLA. He only sells them off stage, but if you drop him a line I feel confident he'll take care of you: jackpritchett9@aol.com


Why is it that our fellow man

Can oft times be so cruel

Seems these days the Dark Side

5/7 1
Has replaced the Golden Rule

All appeals to our morality
Every argument falls flat
For the Dark Side has doughnuts
and you can’t compete with that

4 1
So the Dark Side has doughnuts

5 1
Seems for some that all iit takes

To unleash their latent wickedness

And a Darth Lord they will make

The Force exists in balance
Pitting dark against the light
But the Emperor saves the donut holes
Who could resist just a little bite?

You may think yourself a Jedi
And to the Light Side you always bend
But if we’re really being honest here
You’re more a Sith Lord in the end

Yes, the Dark side has donuts
Might not sound like a big deal
But once you’ve had their donuts
You’d understand the appeal

So when you need a sugar buzz and
No lard soaked dough is found
For donuts, see the Dark Side
There’s plenty to go round
