Knights Of The Round Table / The Song That Goes Like This (Reprise)

  

Arthur: (spoken) And remember Gentlemen - what happens in Camelot stays in Camelot

 

Female Chorus: Camelot

The town that never sleeps

It's Camelot!

 

Knights: We're knights of the Round Table

We dance when e're we're able

We do routines and chorus scenes

With footwork impecc-able

We dine well here in Camelot

We eat ham and jam and spam a lot

 

(In stage show only)

Spam, spam, spam, spam

Spam, spam, spam, spam

 

We're knights of the Round Table

Our shows are for-mid-able

But many times, we're given rhythms

That are quite unsing-able

We're opera mad in Camelot

We sing from the diaphragm a lot

   

A bit of tap dancing

Ensemble Knights: We're knights of the Round Table

Although we live a fable

We're not just bums

With royal mums

We've brains that are quite able

We've a busy life in Camelot.

 

Solo Knight:

I have to push the pram a lot.

 

Female chorus do what they're best at and dance. Then a knight in full armour appears. He slowly takes it off to reveal...

 

Arthur: (Spoken) Ladies and gentlemen - The Lady of the Lake.

 

Lady: (hamming like a cheesy lounge singer) Once in every show

There comes a song like.......this

It starts off soft and low

And ends up with a kiss

Oh, where, where, where where, is the song that goes like this?

Goes like this?

 

(Album soundtrack version only)

A sentimental song

That cast a magic spell

They will all hum along

And we'll all overact, overact like hell

'Cos this is the song

Yes this is the song

 

Oh this is the song that goes....... like...

 

Pause, then orchestra kicks in

 

(Lady of the Lake - scats)

(Arthur - scats)

 

Lady: They're Knights of the Round Table

 

Arthur: They dance when e'er they're able

 

Lady: They're Knights

 

Arthur: Not days, but Knights

 

Lady and Arthur: Not dawn, not dusk

Not late afternoon

But Knights of the Round Table

Round Table

Round Table

Round Table

 

All: Round Table

Round Table

Round Table

So try your luck in Camelot

 

Run amok in Camelot

It doesn't suck in Camelot

(spoken)

WE WON!

(sung)

We're Knights of the Round Table

We dance when e'er we're able

We do routines and gory scenes

That are to hot for cable

 

We eat ham and jam (mime bowling a ball) POW!

We eat ham and jam and spa-am a lot

 

All: (spoken) SPAMALOT!
