The Lyrics

This is gonna be my last Python parody for a while. But it's just one of my absolute favorite shows, and I laugh my head off every time I watch it. So here's my attempt at the Eagle's classic song:
One an old English pathway, King Arthur rode
With his knights riding by him, in a happy mood/(mode)
Up ahead in the distance, they saw a wonderful sight
Patsy said it was only a model, and Arthur said "Be Quiet!"

Thy all rode to the castle
They heard the round table song
And they were thinking to themselves
Maybe we shouldn't stay here that long
Well they stomped on a chicken, and sang songs all day
There were knights in the corridor, you could here them say-

Welcome to the Castle Camelot, yeah
'Tis a silly place, ('tis a silly place), a medieval race
Plenty of knights at the Castle Camelot, yeah
Any time of year, (any time of year) you can find us here

Their minds are Monty twisted, they've got no Holy Grail
The French taunt us lots and lots of times, made us all go pale
How they launch from the courtyard, our wooden bunny
Some taunt to annoy us, they think it's funny

Arthur called up Sir Robin, "Please don't chicken out"
He said "I wet myself at Badon Hill, I will without a doubt"
And still those voices are singing from far away,
Dance around in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

Welcome to the Castle Camelot, yeah
'Tis a silly place, ('tis a silly place), a medieval race
They're drinking a lot at the Castle Camelot, yeah
What a knight surprise, (what a knight surprise),
Where the witches die

Beacons on the rooftop, the castle called Anthrax
She said "You must tie us down and spank us", tie us to a rack
And in the castle chambers, they gathered for a feast
They saw it with their frightened eyes, the terrible big black beast

Last thing they remember, they were filled with such glee
They had to find the Bridge of Death, answer the questions three
"Relax" said the bridge man, "You will soon be at rest"
Just as long as you can tell me, "Color, name and quest!"
This song was hard for me to parody, pacing wise. So please forgive the off-beat pacing here. Thanks.

:-) Come to think of it, a whole parody about the Castle Anthrax scene would be rather fun... if we could get it past Chucky ;-)

I started doing the Monty Python walk when I saw this, and my cat gave me an evil stare.(He gets scared by british accents.) I'm not kidding! I talk in a british accent when he's in touble and he stays away for a lllooooonnnnnggggg time! Great song, even though the pacing was a little off.( It would be hard to do, though.) Do you know if Don Henley likes gopher holes?
