The Artist Formally Known As TK 266

I stopped by the Coruscant Mall to get a part for the Lt. Cmdr’s Lap Datapad. That turned out to be a mistake. Veers was swamped with navel officers mobbing the sales rack. I almost had a Naboo Marcus flash back.

I turned around to leave when I spotted the longest line I had ever seen. A JJ and Jinn brownie shop seemed to have opened recently. I spotted both JJ and Qui-Gon working the counter. They look like they were stuck deep in retail hell. Their pain inspired me to do something I have never done before: write and sing a song.

(Sung to the tune of “Jack and Diane”, badly)

A little ditty about JJ and Qui
2 mall workers just trying to get by
JJ going to be big CEO star
Qui just wants to chill in the great here and after

Eating Endor dogs outside the Hothey Freeze
Qui and JJ stuck in mall jobs for as long as they can see
Qui say “JJ, let’s give up and be done”
JJ says “Heck no, cuz they’ll think that they won”

JJ says, oh yeah mall life goes on
Long after the thrill of haggling is gone
Qui say, Oh yeah mall life goes on
Long after the mall clone is proved a moron

Qui sits back, collect his thought for a moment
Scratches his head and does it best Hans Solo
“Well, you know JJ, we could run off to Kessel”
JJ says, “Jinn you know we ain’t missin’ a thing”

JJ says uh,

Oh yeah mall life goes on
Long after the shoppers complaints are done
Oh yeah mall life goes on
Long after the old lady's expired coupon
Qui walk on

Mall jobs gonna suck, mall jobs gonna blow
Here's the management, come to break your soul
Holding on to break time just as long as you can
Changes to the schedule will ruin your weekend

Oh yeah, mall life goes on
Long after the mall zombies have eaten everyone
Oh yeah, they say mall life goes on
Long after your will to live is gone

Little ditty, about JJ and Jinn
Two mall worker doing the best that they can.

Followed your work I have since John Trooper you called yourself. Then John Trooper Mellenclone you were called. Then just John Mellenclone.

Confusing it is.
