Monty Python songs

“Monty Python and the Holy Grail” is the best comedy I’ve ever seen!!!!!!!

Here’s a few songs by Monty Python:

Camelot 

We’re knights of the round table

We dance whenever we’re able

We do routines and chorus scenes

with footwork impeccable.

 

We dine well here in Camelot.

We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.

 

We’re knights of the round table

Our shows are formidable

but many times we’re given rhymes

That are quite unsingable.

 

We’re opera mad in Camelot

We sing from the diaphragm a lot.

 

War we’re tough and able, quite indefatigable

Between our quests we sequin vests

And impersonate Clark Gable

It’s a busy life in Camelot.

 

I have to push the pram a lot.

 

John Cleese’s character: “No, let’s not go there. It’s rather silly.”

The songwiters are: Graham Chapman, John Cleese and Neil Innes.

Other favourite quotes from the movie: see movie quotes and…

King (to his son): One day all of this will be yours…

Son (shrill voice): What? The curtains?

 

Here’s another nonsensical song:

Brave Sir Robin ran away

 

Brave Sir Robin ran away

Bravely bold Sir Robin

rode forth from Camelot.

He was not afraid to die,

Oh brave Sir Robin.

He was not at all afraid

to be killed in nasty ways.

Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.

 

He was not in the least bit scared

to be mashed into a pulp.

Or to have his eyes gouged out, 

And his elbows broken.

To have his kneecaps split

and his body burned away,

and his limbs all hacked and mangled

Brave Sir Robin.

 

His head smashed in

and his heart cut out.

And his liver removed

and his bowls unplugged

and his nostrils raped

and his bottom burnt off

and his pen…

“That’s… that’s enough music for now lads, there’s dirty work afoot.”

 

Brave Sir Robin ran away.

(“No!”)

Bravely ran away.

(“I didn’t!”)

When danger reared it’s ugly head,

he bravely turned his tail and fled.

(“I never!”)

Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about

and gallantly he chickened out.

(“You’re lying!”)

Swiftly taking to his feet,

He beat a very brave retreat.

Bravest of the braaaave, Sir Robin!

 

I’m not sure the following song is from the movie, but it is definitely by Monty Python:

I’ve got a lovely bunch of Coconuts

 

I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts

there they are a-standin’ in row.

Big ones, small ones, some as big as yer ‘ead!

Give ’em a twist, a flick o’ the wrist,

That’s what the showman said.

 

Hoi’ve got a luvverly bunch o’ coconuts.

Hevery ball yer throw will make me rich.

There stands me wife, the idol of me life,

Singin’ “roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!”

 

Roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!

Roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!

There stands me wife, the idol of me life,

Singin’ “roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!”

 

The line in the song I made bold reminds me of another song. A song Zazu and Scar sings in “The Lion King.”
