The Lyrics

True item: a musical production based on the movie 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' is currently in production in Chicago, writtne by Eric Idle and directed by Mike Nichols. Titled 'Monty Python's Spalmalot', the production stars Tim Curry as King Arthur, with Hank Azaria and David Hyde-Pierce, and is headed for Broadway.The following song could have been the opening number, but isn't.
In Camelot!
In Camelot!
In Camelot!
We don't ride horses, but bang the cocoanuts
Bring out your dead from the infested peasants' huts
In Camelot!
The peasant workers get to stomp and toil in mud
In Camelot!
The big Black Knight gets all his arms and legs hacked off (YEAH!-whoo!)

(Whoa)
It's a silly place, but someone's gotta rule it
It's a silly place, but someone's gotta rule it
(It's Camelot!)

In Camelot!
We meet coward Sir Robin and his minstrel freak
In Camelot!
We meet Sir Galahad in all his chastity
In Camelot!
We meet Sir Lancelot who thought he found a girl
In Camelot!
They seek the Holy Grail and travel 'round the world!

It's a silly place but someone's gotta rule it (7x)

In Camelot!
We fight the killer dragon and killer bunny
In Camelot!
We help the Knights of Ni obtain some shrubbery
In Camelot!
Who rules the people? (In Camelot!) Arthur's the one
In Camelot, the Holy Wars are fought, and boy it sounds like fun
In Camelot!
If you're not careful all your squires will die
In Camelot!
And the French guard will laugh and spit in your eye
In Camelot!
We got the funny knights who dance on tabletops!
In Camelot!
You bet your life I get to push the pram a lot!
(Whoo!)

It's a silly place but someone's gotta rule it
It's a silly place but someone's gotta rule it
It's a silly place but someone's gotta rule it
It's a silly place but someone's gotta rule it
It's a stupid song but someone's gotta sing it!

It's been a terribly long time since I've seen "Holy Grail," but you've brought back many wonderful moments from that movie into my head. From the knights of Ni to the cute little killer bunny, these memories are reborn. Thank you for this song.

Well done, one of my favorite older movies. And seriously on the Broadway show? Cool!

(SOTM) Great take on a fool Monty.

(SOTM) Didn't follow at all.

If you were to make a series of parodies out of all their movies, would you call it "the full monty?"

I was never a monty python fan, but FNM is the sh**, even with chucky.

(SOTM) Great tribute. DKTOS so I just improvised something to rock along to.

(SOTM) DKTOS...good read. 5's

I didn't think I knew the original but now I think I do. It's the one where they go "We care a lot!" all the time, right? Best movie ever; great tribute.

Claude--you are correct on all points. Thanks for all comments and votes everyone. :)

(SOTM) It's a silly song, but someone's gotta write it.
Sadly, DKTOS and couldn't find a good midi, but it made me laugh and reminded me of a good film. :-)

I read about the musical version a couple of months ago- I hope it makes it to London's West End, especially if they can keep the cast- Tim Curry, Hank Azaria and David Hyde-Pierce are all very funny :-)

(SOTM) I'd forgotten how this FNM classic went; great excuse to dig out my old tapes. THis was very good. 555

Tee hee... this might amuse you, Ag: just down the road from me is an offshoot of the local hospital called "The Shrubbery". Earlier this week, somebody wrote "Ni! Ni!" on the signpost.

I listened along with the original while reading this (which I'd love to do with every song parody, but alas). And there was much rejoicing. Great fun. 555 and all that. I recently heard about "Spamalot," too, and would love to see it. Y'all can read about it at montypythonsspamalot.com. It's got a helluva pedigree. Oh, and one more plug, since Aggro's got me all hopped up on Python: There's now a Black Knight plush toy with velcro-detachable arms and legs. I gotta get me one.

(SOTM) This parody is FAR TOO SILLY --- and that's the way it should be!
John Jenkins - February 21, 2005 - Report this comment
Some day, there should be a musical whose songs are all parodies, and this might be one of the songs. Well done.

SOTM - DKTOS but great movie, probably will be a great play, and looks like a good song.

Damn, DKTOS, but fully enjoyed over here. I got ticket to see it on Broadway on March 8th, it went from a three-week wait to a six month wait for two tickets next to each other over the course of one week. You gotta reserve group seats so far in advance now it's scary. But I digress, very worthy subject matter. We are the knights who until recently said Ni.

Man, 8 DKTOS above. Such a shame. This is a good song (despite your last parody line, heh heh) and a fine parody, even though the topic matter is a bit lost on me. 555
