"Brave Sir Robin" as written by and Eric/innes Idle....
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 penis

"That's, that's enough music for now lads, there's dirty work afoot."
Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away 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 brave, Sir Robin!

    General CommentMonty Python and the Holy Grail is the funniest movie I've ever see! Like who else would think of a killer rabbit? It's totally awesome! Personally this is the best song in any of the MP movies. "When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled." Brilliant shit!

    General CommentNear the end it's "buggering off", not "buggering up". "Up" makes no sense regarding running away.
