We've all seen the videos about movies and television shows predicting the future, such as Back To the Future II's Google Glass, specific mention of a black president, etc. But how often have you ever heard of a song predicting a movie that had yet to be made? Well, that's exactly what I'm here to tell you about. Enter "Weird Al" Yankovic, arguably one of greatest musicians (if you can call him that!) of our age.

Well, as it happens, back in 1985, "Weird Al" wrote a parody of the song "Lola" by the band the Kinks. Al's parody was dedicated to the original proponent of "It ain't easy being green." Yep, I'm talking about a certain Muppet.

No, Kermit. Not you.

That's right, I mean this little guy:

"Been in The Muppet Christmas Carol I should have."
"Been in The Muppet Christmas Carol I should have."

The song, appropriately titled "Yoda" is narrated by Luke Skywalker, who tells how he first met the pointy-eared little green man and what he learned from him.

Including piggybacking on padawans, apparently.

But back to the future prediction. There's a line in the song that directly points to Episode VII, which was not filmed until thirty years after the song's release. The line in question reads:

"But I know that I'll be coming back someday. I'll be playing this part till I'm old and gray! The long-term contract I had to sign said I'll be making these movies till the end of time!"

Here's the original song if you want to watch it for yourself! (The line quoted above comes at the 2:40 second mark!)

What do you guys think? Did "Weird Al" predict The Force Awakens? Comment your opinion below!
