The Lyrics

The Black Knight from Monty Python & The Holy Grail describes his encounter with King Arthur via song. If you have not seen the movie, here is a link to the specific scene of the movie this song is based off of: . Enjoy :)
Verse 1: King Arthur came to me
Without a fear in his plan
Didn’t listen to my creed
That I move for no man
The strong protector
This bridge my life has sworn to keep
None shall pass my watchful gaze
I will send you to eternal

Chorus: Well I guess you challenged me
And for this you shall pay
I have beaten a many men
Just as many I’ve slain
And when you die
I will not cry
I’ve warned you once again
Won’t be nice, chop and slice
Now you have defied and you will be dead

Bridge: Believe my words
I will unleash my strength
I am the Stationary Knight

Verse 2: Engaged in a battle
A deadly fighting clash
Then you cut off my left arm
I say “tis a scratch”
I come at you once more
I have no fear of death
Then there goes my right arm
But it’s a wound of flesh

Chorus: Through all these guarding years
I thought I was the man
I do not care that I’m armless
To pass; Oh no he shant!
I will not die!
Let out a cry
That I will have at you!
Shout chicken, I’m kickin’
You swing your sword and take off my right leg too!

Bridge: I do fight on
No chance for you to win
And just for that I will do you!
Believe my words!
I am invincible!
I am the Stationary Knight!

(The black plays a guitar solo with his teeth)

Come on back here!
I will bite your legs off!
Well then I guess I win in my view!
Please heed my words
We’ll just call this a draw
Cause I’m the Stationary Knight!

The sheer genius of this parody is how you took the scene from the movie (which lampoons the swords and sorcery movies) and incorporated it here to lampoon the swords and sorcery aspects of heavy metal music. I love how the first 2 verses were nearly straightforward, then it got sillier.

I don't know if I was listening to a different version of the song but I was extremely throw off by the pacing of this one. Your pacing usually rocks so I'm a bit confused. I also sadly haven't seen Monty Python so I really wasn't your target audience on this one. Sorry pal.

Now we see the violence inherent in the system! Fun recap of a most famous scene. And Matty, you haven't seen Holy Grail? All I can say to you is "Ni!"

(Artistry) Major kudos for fitting a very brief scene into the song. Great parody, just as funny as the original scene, maybe more so due to the contrast of the lyrics and the OS. 555 Holy Grails for you!

I, too, loved the theme like Agri. . .I had some trouble following the pacing like Matty said, but not extreme trouble like he did. . .at any rate, good job
