The Lyrics

The subject was supposed be "night life"... well this is pretty near the end of it, I suppose. No prizes for guessing which film scene inspired this one ;-)
You can tell by the way I ride my horse
That I'm Arthur king of the Brits (of course)
Black knight, you can let me pass
Or if you don't I'll whup yo' ass

I must go - I can't fail
Got to find the holy grail
Stopping me - ain't alright
If you try, I'll kill you, knight

Slicing through the armour, and
Slicing off an arm, a ha! I'm
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Giving him a stuffing, but
He tells me it's nothing, and I'm
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a kni-i-i
Yi-i-i-
Hi-i


Well now, he's in black, and I'm in white
I can have him at least once, sir knight
Got God to help my fightin' arm
I'm the King of England - I'm the bomb

You know it's all right, it's O.K.
Though he's standing in my way
I'll make him understand
With no legs it's hard to stand

Whether he's a-losin'
And a-cruisin' for a bruisin'
I'm a-slayin' a knight
Slayin' a knight
I pray for my vic'try
Then he starts to kick me, so I'm
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a kni-i-i
Yi-i-i-
Hi-i

I'm goin' nowhere.
No knight'll stop me
No one'll stop me, yeah
I wanna know where
Where that damn grail is, yeah.
I'm slaying a knight

You can tell by the way I swing my sword
He's a fallen knight who's just been gored
His outlook is pretty grim
As the bits keep falling off of him

But he don't swear - he don't curse
He just says that he's had worse
With no legs, it seems he's
Trying hard to bite my knees

Started rather charmless, but now
He's rather 'armless
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Can't fight any more, no
'Cause he's just a torso
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a knight
Slaying a knight
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh
Slaying a kni-i-i
Yi-i-i-
Hi-i


'Cause I don't know where
Know where I'm goin'
Somebody help me, yeah.
No, I don't know where.
The grail is hidin', yeah.
I'm slayin' a knight

Grail-huntin' somewhere
Somebody's comin'
Somebody sayin' "Ni!"
Here's what they're askin'
They want a shrubber-y
I'm slayin' a knight

Loved the "Started rather charmless, but now he's rather 'armless" pun! The whole historical inaccuracy of the Arthurian stories drives me nuts tho'. No knights, armor or large horses in Britain back in Arthur's actual day...

(Dec2) Pretty darned funny...I would have to 554 this only because of the recycling of OS lyrics.
Matthias - February 09, 2008 - Report this comment
More about Knight death, than Knight life, but still a good Monty Python tribute.

(DEC2) I don't know Monty Python, is that what this was about? It was really funny and all, but I thought the topic was night life, not knight life. . .

(Dec 2.0) Brave move, basing a parody around ONE SCENE from a movie...gets a bit boring though. Nicely paced, however. 544.

(decath) it's the ease of lines like "As the bits keep falling off of him" that I cherish in a parody, Phil, and this was beautifully done - great movie - great parody - 555

Bit cheeky with your stretching of the topic definition, eh Phil? ;-) Nevertheless, this was a wicked medieval romp. 555

Decathlon...excellent job here, Phil...and two things from me..."With no legs it's hard to stand" made me giggle audibly. Following it so quickly with "cruisin' for a bruisin'" was enough to have everyone in the office staring at my super loud guffawing.

Definitely one of my favorites!

What kind of writer would twist the topic into knight life??? :) Well done parody on one of my favorite movies.
