The Lyrics

Don't ask me how I came up with this parody; just surrender to its absurdity.
Knights in white satin
Always are sleepy heads
They are so tranquil
They slay dragons in bed

Armor is better for
Chopping off dragons' heads
Knights in Pajamas
Gonna say nighty-night

'Cause they're sleepy
They're so tired
Ohhhhh, yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwnnn

(The) Author of Sherlock Holmes
(Was) Dubbed as a knight
So was Mick Jagger, fool
And folks you should know

Alistair Cooke's a knight
But he is now dead
So was Sir Lancelot, but that's obvious

Paul McCartney
And Ben Kingsley
Elton John, Roger Moore

(Interlude)

(The) Author of Sherlock Holmes
(Was) Dubbed as a knight
So was Mick Jagger, fool
And folks you should know

Armor is better for
Chopping off dragons' heads
Knights in Pajamas
Gonna say nighty-night

Paul McCartney
And Ben Kingsley
Elton John, Roger Moore

Paul McCartney
And Ben Kingsley
Elton John, Roger Moore

(Really, really, really long interlude)

(Spoken)
Sleep deep
in Satin Pajamas
Slay dragons coming in your way
Loud-snoring people can wake up the dead
Another knight's useless, staying in bed
This story's about a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed
You snore so loud that you wake up the dead
And senior citizens with the first name Fred
The knights and hobbits head off to dreamland
Gandalf's a wizard, and Legolas and elf
If this parody makes no sense,
You will figure out what's real
And what is an illusion
(Whatever that means....?)

(Long outro/gong)

Decent parody,Chris, but you need work on your titles. Maybe you should call this "Knights In Satan's Service", of course if Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley could have knighthood.

I think all those traditional knights would roll over in their graves if they found out about who gets to be a "knight" today. I like the soliloquy part. Of course, you need to follow up with a parody to "A Singer In A Rock And Roll Band".

Sounds rather dreamy and surreal. Am I right in guessing this is the kind of stuff you think of at three in the morning?
