"You're Welcome" is a Star Wars parody filk of the opening scene of The Last Jedi between Luke Skywalker and a very confused Rey, to the tune of the same name from Moana by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The concept and the first portion of the lyrics were written by charlesoberonn on Tumblr prior to the release of the film as a tongue-in-cheek prediction.[1] The rest of the lyrics were written by OverEnglishman, who also recorded the song and posted it to YouTube on Apr 23, 2017.

At least one fan-animated version also exists.

Luke: I believe what you were meaning to say is ‘thank you’.

Rey: Thank you?

Luke: You’re welcome!

Rey: What? no-no-no, I didn’t… why would I?

Luke: Okay okay *chuckles* I feel what’s happening here You’re face-to-face with greatness and it’s strange You don’t even know how you feel, it’s adorable Well, it’s nice to see Padawans never change Trust in the force, let’s begin Yes it’s really me, Skywalker, breathe it in I know it’s a lot: the hand, the sight! When you’re staring at a Jedi Knight!

What can I say except you're welcome For that Death Star I blew from the sky Hey, it's okay, it's okay, you're welcome I'm just an ordinary Jedi

Hey! What has two thumbs an’ stopped the dark side When you were waddling yay high This guy!

When Solo froze cold Who stopped the rancor down below You’re lookin’ at him, yo!

Oh, also, I met Obi Wan! Kenobi! Plus turns out I’m Darth Vader's son Brought the empire to its knees! You're welcome! Just don’t mention the Ewoks, PLEASE!

So what can I say except you're welcome For that saber you got thanks to me! The force it’ll guide your way You're welcome! Hey, that’s how it goes when you’re a prodigy! You're welcome! You're welcome!

Well, come to think of it Rey, honestly I can go on and on I could explain even dumb midi-chlorians Guiding a missile as tricky as that Nothing if you can bulls-eye a womp rat

Han killed a Tauntaun I slept in its guts Kissed my own sister, which was kinda nuts What's the lesson What is the take-away Do or do not 'cos there is no try anyway

And the legend they tell of my life Is an epic of heroes and strife Me and the force We make everything happen Look at R2 and C3-PO just tippity-tappin', an' tappin' an' tappin' an' tappin' an' Hey! Hey! Hey! HEY!

Well, anyway let me say you're welcome For the galaxy you’ve come to know Hey, it's okay, it's okay You're welcome! Well, come to think of it, I gotta go

Hey, it's your day to say you're welcome Now just train on this island alone! Chewie jump to hyperspace You're welcome! Cos it’s time to blow this thing and go home

You're welcome! You're welcome!

Cos it’s time for the Jedi to end.[2]



Not gonna lie, I love this one song more than the entirety of the Last Jedi. Lucasfilm should have hired you instead of Rain Johnson.[4]

If I was stuck alone on an island I would probably just practice a song and dance number for when someone finds me [5]
