The Lyrics

This guy hasn't been feeling too well lately, what with the whole world turning against him and his boys in the White House. Including 70 percent of the American people. You don't have to cater to "leftists" (or "leftards," in one person's twisted view) to get a majority behind you, but if you're down to...

*CLUNK!*

We apologise for the fault in the description. Those responsible have been sacked.

This is a parody song about the recent Toyota crisis. All keyboards, guitars, sound effects, and...

*CLUNK!*

We apologise again for the fault in the description. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked.

Anyways, after seeing "Spamalot" a few months ago, I decided to do my own retelling of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", called "Monty Python's Holy Grail:A Different View. If you haven't seen either the movie or the musical & don't want anything spoiled, then please turn away. Otherwise, enjoy the ride! Our first entry is about King Arthur.
Risin’ up, thanks to the yeast,
Got the milk, got the flour!
Makin’ dessert, gonna have a big feast,
Just a man and his will to chow down.

So many times, it comes up too fast,
Your eyes…

[record scratch]

The directors of the firm hired to continue the parody after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked.

The parody has been completed in an entirely different style at
great expense and at the last minute.

[actual parody]:

Ridin’ hard through rain and sleet,
Took my gear, took my servant.
Went the distance using naught but my feet,
Just a king with his sword at his side.

I need some help, but people just laugh,
But they’ll just lose out on glory!
Can’t lose our grip on the coconut halves,
We must sound like a horse in our stride!

I’m the King of the Britons; I’m not covered in shite,
Risin’ up to the challenge of the Good Lord.
And I travel old England looking ‘round for some knights
Who will go on a quest with the King of the Britons.

Facing risk at every breath,
I don’t care if I’m hungry!
They stack the odds ‘till we face certain death,
But we’re skilled, we will kill and we’ll ride!

I’m the King of the Britons; I’m not covered in shite,
Risin’ up to the challenge of the Good Lord.
And I travel old England looking ‘round for some knights
Who will go on a quest with the King of the Britons.

Ridin’ hard to Camelot,
Got the guts, need the glory.
Went the distance, now I’m taking my shot,
Just a king with his sword at his side.

I’m the King of the Britons; I’m not covered in shite,
Risin’ up to the challenge of the Good Lord.
And I travel old England looking ‘round for some knights
Who will go on a quest with the King of the Britons.

The King of the Britons. [repeat until fade]

Dylan - Holy Grail, Batman!! On the heels of the incomparable Bond Month comes a true gem. I especially loved the intro...I'd say more but I do not wish to be sacked. (In rediculous Fraannchh accent) No go, or I shall be forced to five you a second time! ;D

I'm not particularly familiar with Monty Python, but this is a good song about the Arthurian legend. Reminds me of that one a couple weeks ago about the warrior queen who fought the Romans.
