Has anyone else heard the Obi Wan Kenobi Shanty? last heard by me at a West Country Carols weekend, in Weymouth, last November. I think it's another Les Barker parody, but it isn't in any of his books that I have at present.

It is by Les and he recorded it on one of his CD's.

I'm not sure this is the song you want, but Les Barker's website says that BEN KENOBI NOBI appears in the book "The Green Eye of the Little Yellow Dog," and was recorded by The Mrs Ackroyd Band on the CD "Yelp!" DOG 017, 2003.

Toorayay, oh, toorayay
Ben Kenobi nobi toorayay

Who taught Luke about the Force
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay
Who's the Fountain, who's the Source?
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay

Toorayay, oh, toorayay
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay

Who does Alec Guinness play?

Who's not in The Darling Buds of May?
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay

Toorayay, oh, toorayay
Ben Kenobi nobi toorayay

Who stands next to Harrison Ford?
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay
Carrying a bloody great white sword?
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay

Toorayay, oh, toorayay

What comes after Jedi day?
Ben Kenobi-nobi toorayay
Jedi Night, so the old men say

Forgot to say, the tune is, of course, John Kanaka and the track is available performed by Wheeler Street featuring Roy Bailey on Cat Nav, one of a series of CDs of Les Barker's works performed by Les and a range of celebs and illustrious musicians in aid of The British Computer Association of the Blind.
