Give Me A Hand

Have you ever noticed that Obi-Wan has a strong tendency to de-limb? It’s not just him but considering what a “good guy” he’s painted to be, the guy has some very violent tendencies. He trains Luke for a brief period of time and then young Skywalker starts taking limbs off of monsters/people pretty quickly… Just saying… THINK ABOUT IT!

There is a lot of limb loss in Star Wars so we put together a nice little song to chronicle some of those key moments. In fact, there’s an entire page dedicated to dismemberment on Wookiepedia.

Lyrics

We see it happen first to poor C3PO
When he’s attacked by a Tuscan Raider
Early in A New Hope
But there’s not much harm
For a droid to lose an arm
Still I’m sure he’d start saying

Give me a hand
Give me a hand
That desert walk didn’t go as I had planned
Give me a hand
Give me a hand
At least I’ve still got legs on so that I can stand
Anyway, droids don’t know how it hurts the same
Droids don’t know how it hurts the same

Then Ponda Baba feels the wrath of Obi-Wan
But we all know that he’s not the only one
There’s Zam Wesell and the Acklay
Anakin and both his legs
Yeah even Grievous would start saying

Give me a hand
Give me a hand
That last fight did not go as I had planned
Give me a hand
Give me a hand
At least I’ve still got legs on so that I can stand
Anyway, Grievous won’t feel the hurt the same
Grievous won’t feel the hurt the same

Well Obi-Wan passed it onto the Skywalkers, it’s true
When young Luke cut the Wampa
And Anakin got Windu and Dooku
But let’s not forget the trade-off
Of Luke and his daddy
A hand for a hand
And that’s what I call chopping
Limbs off your family tree

Give me a hand
Give me a hand
That last fight did not go as I had planned
Give me a hand
Give me a hand
At least I’ve still got legs on so that I can stand
Anyway, droids don’t know how it hurts the same
Droids don’t know how it hurts the same
Droids don’t know how it hurts the same
Droids don’t know how it hurts the same
