The Lyrics

This one brewed for so many months, JD beat me to it by quite a long way... but given that his dealt with different episodes in Blackadder II, and this one is a round-up of all four series (which was kind of tricky in three verses), I figured they were different enough to submit that one
First time we see his evil pair of tights
Was in the dark age, fourteen eighty-five
Laugh at silly Percy, Duke of Somewhere-up-North
Hear the rather loud and Blessed Richard the Fourth

Blackadder! That's how it all begun
Blackadder! So much for series one

Elizabethan courtier struttin' round town
Sly Lord Melchett tryin' to do him down
Quicksilver Queen and her neurotic Nursie
Beautiful "Bob", another stupid Sir Percy

Blackadder! You know you cut a swathe
Blackadder! Right through the middle age

To the eighteenth century for Blackadder Three
Butler to the Prince, not even bourgeoisie
As an army officer, Blackadder goes Forth
Over the top, in the first of the World Warth

Blackadder! You plotted, schemed and lied
Blackadder! Baldrick by your side

Blackadder! You're such a cunning man
Blackadder! Was that a cunning plan?

Yeah! yeah! yeah! Blackadder! You've caused so many tears
Blackadder! Laughter through the years
Have a look at JD's take on the same tune and subject here: Black Adder

Good one, though I don't know the episodes. I never saw it around here.

Phil: Here in Sweden they are making it a New Year´s Eve tradition to show the (from 2000) special New Years Eve Blackadder episode "Blackadder Back And Forth". 3 years in a row now and I hope it will continue. Guessing you´re familiar with it but just in case (and for everyone else) there´s some info about it at the bottom of this page:

If this parody,a cunning plan,and a brilliant idea all stood before Sir Simon of Cowell,the most discerning Knight in all of Britian,and said "We are a parody,a cunning plan,and a brilliant idea-can't you tell us apart ?",poor Simons head would explode,showering the "three" with all the "fives" he refused to give to all of the sub-par-odies,the slightly less-than-cunning plans and the not-quite as brilliant ideas he had encountered in the past! Now with your permission,I would like to take a moment to shout "hurrah !" (ahem...) HURRAH!!! (By the way ,"Blackadder "is my favorite Brit-com!)
