The Lyrics

I don't know this band. I don't know this song. I wrote this parody from a lyric sheet because I needed a Vertical Horizon parody for the Artistry comp.
Up from his height
He taunts a second time
We're standing next to the wall
Where bovines fall

I'm the British king and I keep asking

Where's the grail?
The holy grail?
The French prevail
Turn tail
Run away
Run away
Run away

It's got three heads
Robin's filled with dread
Will he be killed with a sword
Or ignored?

Then the heads get lost in each others thoughts

Robin flees
With minstrels three
And they agree
That he
Ran away
Ran away
Ran away

It's there now
Guarding through the seasons
There in
It's lair n'
Fully animated

Here in the cave
The Beast of Aaauuuugh awaits
I guess that rabbit we fought
Was all for naught

Then the animator
Went to meet his maker

And you say
We'll live to play
Another day
'Cause we
Ran away
Ran away
Ran away

Having only seen the movie once and not really understanding it, British humor is confusing I didn't really get into this parody. The "Sir Robin" reference I was familer with but I hope to have "Come back I'll bite off your kneecaps" line in there. The rabbit line, I was also familer with. I don't blame you for not knowing the band they were a pretty obscure choice to be picked for Artistry.

(Artistry) The tune didn't allow much room to cover what you wanted, methinks. I actually got away with it with my "In Camelot" (shameless plug here). Another meh round I guess.

(Artistry) Not a lot to work with, but seeing as you only focused on the 'running away' portions of the film, it works. REALLY well. 555 grails for you!

(Artistry) Well, the fact you used a lyric sheet didn't hurt as much as it could have. You did well with few lines to work with, but I'll forgive this--I read your intro--I've had at least one Doo Doo somewhat like that where I had only heard the song once, and didn't care enough for the band to look up their music, Matty accused me of making up the existence of TOS--I also used a lyric sheet:)

This one has a Youtube video, I still believe in "Doo Doo" as much as I do in Bigfoot. Sure it could be out there somewhere in the backwoods of Canada, but I've never seen it. So I can't judge on the realisticness of such a creature/song.

Orton got the grail though the Bears are still out.
