The Lyrics

What is the air speed velocity of an unladen parody?
My king, he is a noble man
A mission from our God who’s quest is true
Our king will see us through
With cocoanuts, we search the land
We ride away, my minstrels sing their tune
To danger, we’re immune

And we’ll run,
We’ll run into the fray
When we’re done
The Frenchmen go away
The Grail will save the day

We meet a monster on the way
I’ve never seen three heads on one big brute.
I think I soiled my suit.
My minstrels sing a silly song
They all insist I’m brave and one mean dude
I love their point of view

So I ran
I ran out of harm’s way
On Earth I wish to stay
To fight another day

After lovely minstrel meal
An aviating rabbit ran us through
We wanted rabbit stew
The Bridge of Death, and questions three
It sounded easy, answers that I knew
And then what does he do?

Change of plan
A change to my dismay
His demand
A wing speed to explain
And so I flew away.
I don't know that. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............... More questionable rhymes and news stories await at The Blogging Baker. Copyright 2010 Warren Baker

Normally, five is right out! But I'll make an exception here and give you five 5's

Three, sir.

Right, three.

His shoe! I found his shoe! It's a sign!

Nice, funny song, Warren, but what does Sir Robin have to do with Iran? ;-) Terminal velocity of this parody is 555.

At first, I thought that it would be about Robin Hood. I had to do research to find out what Sir Robin is about. But I realized that it's about the story of knights from Camelot. I also came across this link about what Sir Robin is about: Anyways, I would have to say the air speed velocity is much swifter that "a flock of seagulls"! LOL!! 555.

Sorry for the tardiness. But... Knights- I believe Roger has a special on shrubberies this week. McK- Thank you. I now shall feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats. TT- According to legend, after the crusades, Sir Robin moved to Iran. Unlike his experience with the Knights and the round table, Robin thrived in his new surroundings. In fact, he became quite a dancer and opened up a number of dancing studios featuring the now famous German favorite, Chicken Dance. To this day, Iranians still talk about the Tail of Sir Robin. FG- Gracias, but many times I give you rhymes that are quite un-sing-able. SuMa- Can I say Jehovah? SpMn- It was great time for music and a sad time for hair... OMR- Thank you, sir. Well, you have to write these things when you're a king, you know! ;-)

Very good! To answer your question: I believe the air-speed velocity of an unladen parody is 555 miles per hour.

Thanks Dylan. Now I need to figure out if coconuts migrate...
