The Lyrics

Ni ! Ni ! Ni ! Ni ! Ni !
Ni ! Ni ! Ni ! Ni ! Ni !

See me standing in the forest
With some British Arthur king
Out for shrubs that I can get
It's our medieval bling
There's some knights to the left of me
And some knights to the right
Aint got no sword, Got no nerve gas
Still you cannot pass

Without a - Shrubbery!
It's all we need
Shrubbery! - leafy green
Shrubbery! We're a frightful lot
Shrubbery! - Watery tot!

I'm knightly, tall, no sword at all
I'm a shrub'ry man
Camelot enemy #1... understand?
So lock up your greenhouse, lock up your plants
Lock up your garden and don't wet your pants
The French are back in town,
So don't ya taunt us 'round

We want - Shrubbery!
It's all we need
Shrubbery! - leafy green
Shrubbery! We're a frightful lot
Shrubbery! - Watery tot!

Shrubbery!
Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni!
Shrubbery!
Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni!
Shrubbery!
It's all we need
(Ni! Ni! Ni!)
Shrubbery, leafy greed!
Shrubbery, we're a frightful lot
Shrubbery! Watery tot!

Watery tot? Oh, you mean watery tart, as in "...you can't go around expecting to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you", don't you?
Chris Kilo - November 15, 2006 - Report this comment
Yes, that's what I meant. I changed tart to tot, since with the English accent, "tart" sounds a little like "tot", and it rhymed better that way. I use quite a bit of poetic liberties in my parodies, fair warning haha. So it's common to find me stretching the rules so to speak in my parodies.

Stretch away, but you probably want to keep your audience in mind. Not everyone who reads this will automatically make the mental leap from the Knights of Ni to the "watery tart" referred to by Dennis in the "anarcho-syndicalist commune" scene. "Watery tot" made me think of Timmy falling in the well. Incidentally, this parody would have been stronger if you'd done it from a single viewpoint instead of going from the Knights to the French taunters. If you want to do a Holy Grail parody, by all means, please do so, but don't limit yourself with such a specific title. Just my two cents.

AC/DC + Monty Python & the Holy Grail = 555
