“Jabba Flow” Lyrics and Translation from Huttese

Jabba Flow Lyrics Hey Jabba Song

Oh Jabba!

If you’re looking for the lyrics to that catchy Star Wars: The Force Awakens cantina song, look no further! I’ve put together the best guess on these lyrics, compiled from a number of sources, including this post by Reddit user Explosive_Ewok as a starting point.

The song is in Huttese, and is using words we’ve seen in the Star Wars universe already. The composer elaborates on how he wrote it:

“I went to a website that had all the Huttese glossary of terms and it translates as, ‘No, lover, lover. It wasn’t me.’ It’s literally a Shaggy intergalactic remix.” ―Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The line he’s talking about is “No bata tu tu muni muni.” And the glossary was probably this Wikia.

“No bata tu tu” = “Whatever it is, I didn’t do it.” Originally said by Watto, in the Episode II Novelization by R.A. Salvatore.

“Muni” = lover. From Star Wars: Legacy Volume 7: Storms. (Star Wars Wikia)
